Jim reports on the MAC Club 10k Winter handicap run -
An exciting climax sees Jan Forrester reign supreme and a man from Youlgreave (John Thorpe) on a mission. Jan may have already had the series win secured but that didn't prevent her from finishing with a flourish as she claims another age graded win of 82.66% to leave her 1 point short of a maximum haul from her 5 counting races.
The fight for the remaining podium places eased as Simon Flitter couldn't make it, so it then became a straight fight between John Thorpe and Kathryn Berrisford, and despite a brave effort by Kathryn it was John who prevailed by smashing through the 38 minute barrier for the first time to bag 28 age graded points and leapfrog in to 2nd place. That'll be another wedge of vouchers to add to his Senior GP haul so expect to see a new pair of shorts.
Thanks to everyone who ran, to Mark Jackson for helping with the timing.
