Many thanks to all officials, helpers and competitors who attended the Colin Simpson Handicap Memorial run on today, 2nd February 2020. It was a lovely mild morning this year and we had 29 competitors and some excellent performances. An enjoyable presentation followed at which MMAC President, Irene Nichols, presented Colin’s widow and long term volunteer for MMAC, Margaret Simpson, with a beautiful lily plant (photo below).
Chris McCann ran away with the MMAC Colin Simpson trophy this year in an actual time of 33:44 and a handicap time of 23:04 while Pete Makepeace, of Knowle & Dorridge AC (not currently an MMAC member) won the handicap race overall in an actual time of 33:47 and a handicap time of 21:57 Steven Bunsby, of BRAT, took the fastest male prize with a superb time of 28:18 while Sue Kneill-Boxley, of Cannock & Stafford AC, took the fastest female prize in a respectable time of 36:52. Just eight MMAC members took part in the race this year. Please do take part in forthcoming years if you can, it is a friendly sociable event well worth supporting in the MMAC calendar. There are excellent facilities at the college and refreshments served in the presentation area.
