Rogue Run Night Race 1 & Newent Nine

The first of this winter’s Rogue Run Night Races was held at Mallard’s Pike over 5 miles of hills, mud, roots and a pond.  There were warnings of the treat the boar posed but the sight of 283 runners crashing through the woods with head torches must have proved too much for them: none were seen.  The winner was Paul Murrin of Chepstow Harriers in 35.42.

It was a good night for Forest of Dean AC. Victoria Baker was first lady in 41.59. Dan Sandford was first man, 5th overall in 37.55.  The ladies team of Tori, Sherryl Hall 48.12 and Helen Lipscomb 51.25, and the men’s of Dan, Richard Powles 42.22, Matt Bond 42.55 and Wayne Bevan 42.58 were both 2nd.  Sherryl was also 1st FV50.
