Watford 10km Results

On bank holiday Monday a merry little band of HAC athletes crossed the border into Hertfordshire in search of Summer Series points at the Watford 10K. The weather was fine and warm but the Cassiobury Park course was remarkably hilly and challenging proven by the fact that of the 890 finishers only 7 got round in less than 40 minutes!!   First home was Andy Torrance in 48.37 (position 142) who cruelly overtook pacer Zoe Dobbs with 400m to go! Zoe however achieved a very creditable 2nd in her age category with 48.53 in position 147.  Next was Tony Shaw in 49.43 (170) and current summer series leader Dennis Carey in 50.21 (196).  Next in was Paris Marathon sub four hour finisher Melanie Spencer in 51.03 (222) followed by Bob Burton in 52.41 (333). Ciara Williams, who had spent all  the previous day ill in bed and only decided to run 2 hours beforehand bravely finished in 55.59 (426) and William Harding completed the HAC turnout in 1.00.39 for position 547. That just gave us all time to exit the park as half a million Watford FC fans descended on the adjacent field to celebrate their promotion to the Premier League!!!
