A team of 4 Harriers tackled the popular Billericay10k on Sunday. 600 toed the line to tour the course around the rural lanes north of the town.

Toby Draper chipped away at his pb with a time of 38.07 to finish an excellent 15th. Nick Trencher can be delighted with his 26th position and time of 39.29 which indicates he is nearing his best form.

Gary Rowlatt, now in his late forties, produced an excellent pb of 42.50 in 73rd place. He has ambitions of improving still more in the coming months. Kirk Bundy achieved a top 100 spot. His time of 43.59 took him to 88th.

The four finished a respectable 8th in the men’s team race a good effort from this team of relative newcomers.

With the age group County Cross Country Championships at the end of the month, the Club’s endurance runners are well into their winter training schedule.
