Banbury 5 Mile – May 21st

An undulating course on the outskirts of Banbury with a mixture of urban and rural roads, and pavement. Part of the East Midlands Grand Prix. Held on a Tuesday night in wet conditions, it clashed with the grass track training and hence Tom Preskett was our only entrant, and James Bolton the race adjudicator.

Bourton-on-Water One Mile – May 10th

Enthused by the recent Festival of Miles, Carey Gray and his brother Phil (Oxford City AC) entered the closed road evening race through the streets of the pretty Cotswold tourist hot spot. Phil half succeeded in beating his sub-six minute target, at least his chip time was under, whilst Carey failed in his attempt on seven minutes and was caught and passed by the first junior, who started two minutes behind. However, Carey did beat Dave Moorcroft by two minutes, former holder of the 5000m world record in 1982 and 3 minutes 49 seconds for the mile at his best.

A two lap, dead flat, 5 mile, midge infested race on a reclaimed swamp called Otmoor. Part of the Mota-vation series as well as the Oxfordshire Grand Prix. A big field with 20 Harriers competing. It was almost dark by the time the last runner finished. Katherine Jones (VL35) and Sarah Kerswell (VL55) were first in their respective age categories. Some significant differences between start and chip times.
