  A few lines written by Christine provide a good summary of the WWRRs’ day:-
Steve Hargrave (57 minutes) did really well and Matt wasn't far behind him (1h 2m)
Graham Maddison ran his first ever XC not so long ago, said "never again", but today he was a prize winner for 3rd in age category (1h 13m).
[Christine’s target] … was just to stay upright, which I did although there were a few moments... some runners near me suggested that the copse we ran through should have been called “Screaming Ladies Wood, because we were indeed screaming, at the near-misses.
Cherry was awesome... coming first in her age category and beating lots of us in younger age categories, even after running 15 miles on Friday!
It was lovely having support from Linda Adams and Lisa Taylor too.”

Bitterly cold winds did not deter WWRRs who competed in the Ryde 10 Mile Race, and the Portsmouth Coastal Half Marathon on Sunday - well done everyone!
The Ryde 10 race was popular, and full to capacity, so achieving first place in an Age Category was no mean feat - congratulations Graham!
