  TWIGG Handicap

 

Pictured is our 2017 winner Laura Lever who you could say had a favourable handicap as she finished over 4 minutes ahead of 2nd placed Bev Priestly, who actually started off first. Maggie Gorman finished third, after that there was a steady trickle of runners snaking down Newbold Road and into Watermeadow Lane to the finish. 

 

John Sanderson started last but was easily the fastest man on the course with an actual time of 37:43, the only one to dip under 40 minutes.

 

Thanks to all the runners, we had a record 72 finishers, all the marshals and helpers and a special thanks to Sue Brundrett for all the work she put into the event. Download results below and CLICK HERE to see photos courtesy of Steve Kimberley.
