In scorching conditions yesterday (Sunday 18th June), 17 dedicated / mad / idiotic* (*delete as appropriate) seniors competed in the Richmond 10k at Ham. With the temperature already up to 24C by the time of the 9 am start, it was good to see that everybody completed the race, although Dave Rayner did need medical attention at the finish. Hope you're feeling better today Dave!

For the men, we were led home by Marc Graham in 7th (33:59 chip), closely followed by Fran Dunham in 11th (34:34) and Ronnie Murray in 12th (34:41). First RPAC lady was Ginevra Stoneley in 228th overall with a time of 44:51.

This race was the next fixture in the Surrey Road League, where the men are the defending team champions and currently the leading team in this year's competition. It looks like we were pipped to first place in this race, with Ranelagh Harriers finishing just 1 point ahead (29 vs 30 points for the first 3 finishers). It should be noted though that Ranelagh had 73 finishers in the race, demonstrating the size of their club compared to RPAC, so this was another excellent result for us and (if confirmed) will maintain our overall lead in the men's team competition. The remaining fixtures in the SRL are the Elmore 7 (15th July), Elmbridge 10k (23rd July) and Wimbledon Dash 5k (13th August).

The race was also the RPAC Club Championship 10k and the 4th / 5th race in the RPAC Grand Prix 2017. Full individual results including the championship positions are available here, whilst the Grand Prix table has been updated here. Congratulations to all the Championship winners. The Grand Prix competition is hotting up, with very few points separating the leaders in each group. Things will start to get especially interesting now, as some people have already competed in 5 fixtures, with only their best 5 results from 8 counting towards their points total.

The remaining Grand Prix fixtures are the Elmore 7 (15th July), Elmbridge 10k (Group 1 only, 23rd July), a Priory Park Parkrun (each persons fastest time from 2nd or 9th September) and the Reigate Half Marathon (17th September). The Reigate Half is also the Club Championship half marathon.

Sadly no photos, the seniors are not as organised as the juniors!
