Well done everyone who raced at Brent Knoll, with 15 runners on 7 races going into to the race I knew there could be quite a few changes to Series positions. This also helped to give us a highest ever number of runners for the race, 169!
The race was won by Philip Bridge (Wells CH) in 36:07, closely followed by 2018 Men's Series Champion, Christian Green (also Wells CH) a mere 18 seconds behind. Third place went to Simon Marchant (Southville RC)in 37:53.
For the ladies Michelle Weaver (unattached) was 1st in 44:08 (21st overall), Verity Elston (Minehead RC) was 2nd in 45:25 (30th overall) and Katherine Walker (unattached) was 3rd in 46:11 (33rd overall).
Final standings for this year are now on the website.
I'm pleased to say that the 2019 race list is complete and on the website, a minimum of 8 races from 23 to qualify. Well done everyone who competed in this years Series. I've been informed by Ian from Mendip AC that the Glastonbury Round The Tor 10k next year is also going to be the County Road Race Championship for 2019 to add a little extra spice.Matt 30th November
