The second race in the Winter Handicap race on took place on Tuesday and fastest lady was Tracy Wilkinson-Begg  in a time 29:50 and fastest man Stuart Sprinks in 29:46  Kate Bullard was first female to finish and Stuart Sprinks first man.  It’s great to see so many FRC members turning out to run and marshal in the colder weather and get together for the meal and a chat at Three Hills afterwards.

It was the Kent League Cross Country on Saturday at Danson Park, Bexley for Juniors and Senior Vet Women only.  There were some absolutely stunning results with Emily Chambers and Tracy Wilkinson-Begg finishing in the top 10 of their respective races.  Chambers was 6th and Wilkinson-Begg  7th.  Morgan West finished 18th place in his race.
