The senior women were out in force again at Danson Park. Last year we were pleased but a bit surprised at the number of fast times. We suspected that the course was short and sure enough this year an extra loop and wiggle had been added. That said again there were a number of excellent performances. After a fast start a group of four runners broke away from the rest and didn’t at any point look like they would be caught. It was then a matter of who would drop back. It was good to see two Cambridge Harriers battling for the lead with Holly Dixon and Caroline Ford eventually taking 2nd and 3rd place. Lucy Marlow and Louise Knight also had good runs in 14th and 18th. Hayley Newman and Cara Oliver completed the team of six. The women again came second in both the team of three and the team of six competitions. Our non scoring runners Sue Dixon, Rose Baker (first home in her age group) Sally Carr, Frances Nestor, Angela Ford, and Maria Macdonald were producing fine performances whether trying to beat their park run times from that morning or friendly rivals.
