A bit of a disappointing turn out for this race in that there were nearly as many supporters as runners.. Luckily, we had just enough to make a team. As you would expect, the conditions were muddy and the going was tough, but everyone knuckled down and put on a good show and everyone looked to be going well.
Nick Treitl, running in spikes, admits that he might have gone off a bit too fast and on the first lap he was in 13th place overall and he lost an odd place or two in what seemed like never ending laps of the course, but he still finished in a very creditable 16th position.. The Barlick finishing order and times were:
16 Nick Treitl 32:46
42 Rob Weir 35:23
54 Dan Taylor 36:47
90 Des Walkden 39:09
114 James Fent 42:01
129 Scott Baistow 43:20
Barlick were 10th team out of all four divisions and thanks to the tremendous effort put in by every one who took part, scored the maximum ten points from this event. Barlick are leading the table, with 31 points from four races, but we can be beaten by other teams if they accrue enough points in the last two races. It is therefore all to play for.
