It gives me awesome pleasure to mention on here the outstanding performances by two of us at this year's Coniston "14".
Firstly, we must give a massive congratulations to Harry Stainton for winning the race outright, not in a sprint finish, but by clear daylight.
Harry's time of 80:34 was over a minute ahead of the second placed bloke (just shy of 82 mins). WELL DONE HARRY....absolutely brilliant.
Also, this is a major race and Harry's victory comes less than a year after our very own Paula Irons won the Coniston trail marathon last summer.
Harry's win has left me scratching my head as I believe he's the first BCR to win this locally based race this millennium. It would be interesting to know if any other BCR has won the Coniston 14 in the early days of the club.....perhaps older members could shed some light.
Back to this year and our second victor was an age group win for Lou Lyness....who duly took the lady vet 65 in a very good 1:49.54...well done again.
OTHER BCR RESULTS.... All chip times.... for the purpose of the club champs scoring system and table update:
Harvey Lord 86:20 (15th place overall! and a prize for finishing in the top 20 here)
James Goffe 1:48.24
Adrian Hooper 1:52.16
Ian Verber 2:10.06
Andrew Gittins 2:12.12
Me 2:23.14 (Shown as unattached, but on the main set of results....969th place)
Mike Hartley 2:32.36.
