Clear skies and a blustery wind greeted our 36 runners for this opening fixture of the new season. The athletes had a fine start to the season with two sets of gold medals, a silver and bronze plus four other teams in the top six. Overall it was an excellent turnout from other clubs across Essex. The course, around 3.2k, was fairly flat albeit a little soft in places following rain the previous week.
Firstly I want to sincerely thank the team managers who gave out numbers, chips and pins to the athletes, as well as sorting out the running order for the athletes. Big well done to Laura Millward, Lesley Maeda, Karen Adams, James Geller, Steve Cody plus Nick Sloan.
