Stag Trophy – Latest Results
The Stag season runs from the first Wednesday in October to the first Wednesday in April. Usually the only reason for changing one is if New Year’s day happens to fall on a Wednesday.
The first race of the season saw perfect mild running conditions with very little wind on the evening, but just 14 runners taking on the three lap route. First home in a new personal best was Pete Mackrell who just sneaked past Ruth Mitchell in the finals strides of the race. Warren Rose was third home to pick up 23 points while Stuart Read earned the only other PB of the night to come home 6th.
The second race included two PB’s on the night with Ruth Mitchell coming home second behind new boy James Lowe and taking 25 seconds off her previous best from last month.
The other was from James Bell who took 10 seconds off his time to set a new club record for V45, taking it from Paul Dimmock (Chris & Stuart’s dad) by two seconds.
Race three saw James Lowe smash last month’s time by 80 seconds to comfortably win the race again. Warren was second home, continuing his usual consistency and Stuart Dimmock was third. Unfortunately for James Bell, his V45 record lasted just one month as Ian Grimshaw, having just turned 45 ran an excellent 13:57. James, however, does go into a new category in May…….
After three races, Stuart Dimmock now has a 1 point lead over Ruth and Warren, but James Lowe is now up to fifth with a maximum of 50 points from two races!
