Eight West Wight Road Runners travelled to Alton for the penultimate Hampshire Road Race League event. In almost perfect conditions, on a tough course, both men's and ladies teams performed well. Gareth Knight led the men home in a very good time of 1.08.22, followed by Ian Jolliffe in 1.17.50, Eric Critchison in 1.27.04 and Brian Amy in 1.33.08. Vic Loveday, who has taken part in all but one of the league races, was back in 1.36.25.
Madeline Goodman was first lady home in 1.25.49, which gave her 3rd Vet 55, and 1st Vet 60. Chris Amy was next in 1.28.33 and Cherry Owens completed the ladies team coming home in 1.36.10.
The final race of this year's HRRL is the Netley 10k on Sunday 17 May.
