CAMBRIDGE HARRIERS  EST. 1890

Kent County XC Champs - Senior Men

Brands Hatch
We had 20 runners in the senior men's race, a record, at least in recent times, only Tonbridge with 24 had more than us. But with James MacDonald in 31st our first finisher and with only three others in the top 100 we were a long way from challenging for medals; in the six-to-score team competition we were only 9th, but our good strength in depth took us to 4th in the twelve-to-score.

The old airfield above the Brands Hatch motor racing circuit is a bleak place at the best of times and a biting North-easterly wind did little to help but the day was clear affording good views out towards the Thames estuary. Despite much recent rain the going was surprisingly firm although sharp bends at the foot of each of the downhill sections lay in wait for the unwary.


Mal Pires, Gregg Lemos-Stein


Dom Fiore and Peter St Amour had particularly good runs to be our second and fourth finishers and it was good to have Rob Jackaman back for his first appearance of the season. Special mention too for Alan Black for being first M60 and to Josh Lawless and Mal Pires for having the honour of being our final scorers in the six and twelve to score teams respectively.

Remember that we have a new Grand Prix competition this season with your best six results from the eight qualifying races to count. With three races to go Bayley Massey still leads the table but with his decision to run in the junior championship races rather than the seniors it is all still to play for. Currently the top of the table looks like this:

BAYLEY MASSEY 79
JAMES MACDONALD 75
DAVID READER 67
DOM FIORE 63
GRAHAM MAYNARD 51
MAL PIRES 50
ALAN BLACK 50
CHRISTIAN POULTON 42
CLEM DIXON 40
