Much of the Orion course was bone dry this year, with just minor
patches of mud to emphasise how lucky the participants were. The race
was won by veteran Allen Smalls of Colchester in 1 hour 32 minutes.
England Masters CC international Dave Cox,
off a relatively low maximum of 30 miles per week training, was 5th in
1:38.06, 44 places and 13 minutes ahead of the next M50! We also took
the M60 prize in the shape of Roger Green, who was 93rd of 286 finishers, recording 1:58.50.
