Race #3 12th July 2012 Bull Hill


A lovely evening and a lovely race well organised by Radcliffe AC. Again at 67 inter-club competitors we were a significant 27% of the field.
Preston are this year determined to do well and lead overall/vets/V70s but Red Rose(2nd overall/2nd V50s) and Wesham(3rd overall/2nd vets/1st V50s) have also fielded strong teams. Lytham keep their usual pressure on the ladies title(2nd & 3rd V60s) with Chorley still clutching the V60 one, but cheers must go to Tanya Barlow for her sole effort in keeping Blackpool on the score sheet.
8 potential prize winners at this stage are listed which does not show a lot of change with only Barry Wheeler & Claire Bunce ousting Stuart Roberts & Melanie Koth from the last summary ; all to run for at the Chipping race therefore.
