A small group of Wye Valley runners made the short trip down to Upton Bishop to take on this challenging but enjoyable race on quiet roads around the Gloucestershire border. The good turnout was no doubt due to the prospect of some Super 10 points
First back in 10th place was Richard Williams in 41.13. Tony Champken (now sponsored by Swan brewery) was next in a very creditable 46.48. Tony was 19th and first M60. Not far behind in 21st place came Brent Lowson in 48.08, believed to be a PB. Jan Edwards was next in 53.38 and first lady over 60. Sian Champken was comfortably under the hour in 58.06, but Bryan Symonds seemed to be taking it easy in 62.38, securing another M70 prize.
This is a small but very enjoyable race (which I have watched!). Lets have a few more WVRs next year if it doesn't clash with other races.
A special mention to Barry Reynolds from our neighbours Hereford Couriers, who for once didn't finish second and came home to win the race, as well as obviously being first M45. Well done Barry!
