With wild weather making conditions a little trying, numbers were low for tonight’s Mike McAvoy age graded 3000m. In spite of this, Russ Jenkins and Phil Shay post excellent runs at National standard percentages.

Julian Hinckfuss charged out into the wind to post a win in the opening 100m, and Russ backed up the 3000m with a great 800m.

Many thanks to Martin, Jeff and Sue for braving the weather to officiate tonight.


Julian Hinckfuss 15.70, John Moore          16.40, Peter Lamb           16.40, Russ Jenkins               19.80, Stuart Pretty         22.10
