Nick Holliday and Caroline Cotterell raced around two flat loops near the village of Bromham to earn a Christmas pudding each.  Nick used this very popular and well supported race to experiment with running a 5km negative split and Caroline was thrilled to knock one minute from her previous 10k time.

The battle between two young juniors, Sam Cook and Tom Prosser continued this week inspiring Sam to produce his fastest time for the Swindon course as he pushed nearly one minute ahead of Tom.  Tom, along with most of our other runners, slowed this week suggesting tough conditions and making Sam’s PB even more impressive. Further up the field Isaac McAdam finished in third place.  It was good to see Luke Campbell’s tentative return after injury but with a PB some five minutes faster he clearly has some way to go.  Younger brother Ollie continued his great season of running by finishing first at Chippenham.  David Moss and David Lattimore both found small events in Liverpool and Toulouse.
