Many thanks to all officials, helpers and competitors who attended the Colin Simpson Handicap Memorial run on Sunday 3rd Feb. It was a fine, if a little chilly, morning this year and we had 33 competitors and some excellent performances:
Sue Kneill-Boxley, of Cannock & Stafford AC, ran away with both the Colin Simpson trophy and the fastest female prize with an actual time of 33:52. Brothers Ian and Paul Cooper, of Centurion RC, came 2nd and 3rd in the handicap while Pauline Dable, of Kenilworth Runners, was the second lady and 4th overall. Fastest male was Brett Taylor in an actual time of 31:53.
