A Walk in the Park-inson

OUCCC County Updates (to be updated as results filter through the lonely Webmaster)

South-Wests, Bicton – OUCCC had a huge force on show at the SWs at hilly Bicton. Dan Mulyran and James Sewry competed admirably for Dorset in a combined Under 20 and Senior’s race over 9.1 hilly kms, whilst a slightly off-colour Miles fought hard a little way back in the field. One of his Bristol and West compadres, Will Christofi, performed superbly to finish in 5th position in the Seniors: it’s clear to see that this year should be a good one for the young pretender. His other Bristol and West teammate, Adam Speake, finished further back in (something like) 15th place. Meanwhile, legend has it that a certain Mr Jamie Parkinson had got lost on a run he’d started in Dartmoor and seen the signs for the race that morning. Sourcing running spikes (to which he’d only recently been introduced), Jamie became well-known during the race under his other name: “Who-on-earth-is-that”, sticking with the front runners, before unleashing a burst up one of the final hills to win the South West County champs. Well ran to everyone from the club, an excellent showing.
