Although the race started in rain, later it cleared. And HRR had a fine evening as we came away with 7 prizes. They are given in the list below. We (actually, Susan Turner, Adrienne Hopkins and Claire Burley) also won the Ladies Team Prize, which seems to be usual these days.

And well done Claire, who in her second race came away with two prizes!

As it was raining at the start, Kit thought he'd have to take his lamp chops home again but after the race he discovered it was going to be OK as they had moved the barbeque to under the trees.

For me, Graham's red shorts came ever closer as the race hill-ed onwards and onwards. At the finish, he was only 27 seconds ahead of me. Afterwards I wondered whether I should have tried harder earlier in the race, but I guess he would have forgotten Sunday's Half at High Wycombe if I had tried to tear pass him in the final straight, attempting to deprive him both of his bottle of wine for 3MV60 and the first MV60 position in today's HRR RC race!

The legendry Mick and Phil wheelchaired round starting 10 minutes before the race and finishing 3 minutes before the final runner. They were also doing the Wycombe Half Marathon and said the Hornton 6 had been a good warm-up for it.

The race was well marshalled and there was a good atmosphere: a very pleasant evening.
