2020/21 STAC Championships Race 10 – Abbey Dash


A STAC favourite the Abbey Dash and the scene of our 10th club race. Perfect running conditions for this fast flat course and there were personal bests aplenty!

Special mention for Shane Grace who was 5th in his age category, narrowly missing out on top 3. Also to Elle Warren who was 74th lady overall. There were some other great runs including Sarah Morley & John Robson both 11th in their age category, Jess McMullan 12th and Andrew Grinnell 15th. Whilst Julie Levitt got a spectacular PB, improving 13 minutes off her previous effort.

The club championship is reaching the business end with just 2 races to go. The best 6 out of the 10 races so far count, and it will be the best 7 out of 11 by when we finish.

In the mens, Shane Grace is back in the lead and needs to just turn-up to one of the remaining races to win the title. John Robson looks to have secured 2nd and has already done 7 events. Ian Sheppard is still 3rd but is injured at the moment opening it up for Jason Albrecht, Lee Whiteley, Wayne Butler or David Morley to sneak 3rd.

In the ladies, Sarah Morley is back at the top and is almost certain to win if she does one more race with an even bigger lead than Shane. it’s very close for the podium places with Sam Jackson and Emma Longfellow just ahead of Becca Hattrell and Lisa Belford-Mcdowell. Becca and Lisa have already done 7 races, so any more they do their worst race will not count enabling them to close the gap further!
