The final race of the Hereford 5k series was held in almost perfect conditions, although it was a little too warm for a few. Once again, Forest of Dean AC swamped the entry with about 30 runners: so much so that the Race Director welcomed everyone to the “Forest of Dean Championship”.
First FODAC finisher was Peter Woodward who was 3rd overall and broke the magic 17 minute barrier for the first time by 11s. Marcus Bennetto, John Russell, Richard Pegler, Dan Sandford, Chris Moore, Brian Francis all clocked up PBs.
The race series prizes were also awarded with Lynne Park FV45, Jacqueline Green FV55, Alan Robertson MV55 & Chris Moore MV60 all picking up category awards.
