Bluetts Forest 30 October Vets Handicap.
The rain cleared, but left the track in solid condition and firm underfoot.
Km rates were :- 5:51, 6:14, 5:08, 5:41, 7:06, 7:11, 6:29 and another 45 seconds added on at the end to make it overall measured at 7.1km.
Decided to go fast on the downhills and hang on as best as possible on the uphills.
1st, 3rd and 4th kms were downhill, and so was the last in a fashion.
2nd, 5th kms were uphill, while the last km was part downhill and part uphill with the steeper downhill in the first 400 m and the long gentle uphill in the last 600m.
Medallists today were all new, as distinct from previous months where people won successive medals.
John Macleod got his 200 runs T-Shirt and Lorna Burdon got her 150 runs T-Shirt. Some 50 run T-Shirts were also presented to Graham Delaney, Mick Charlton and Monika Short.
Until Next Time.
