2022 STAC Championships Race 3 – Norton 9


Our 2nd club race in as many weeks as we went to Norton, for an undulating 9 miler in South Yorkshire. The Norton 9 has been a club race before, back in both 2008 and 2016.

Over 20 STAC’s raced and as ever there were some incredible performances with Shane Grace 3rd overall and 1st in his age category whilst Glen Johnson and Dave Parker were 2nd and 3rd respectively in their age category.

The club championship still early days but Sam Chapman leads the ladies ahead of Wendy Higgins and Adele Wilson. Whilst in the men’s Shane Grace, Glen Johnson and Ian Maudsley are the top 3.

We have the ‘Andrew Gardner’ award for 14 consecutive races that hasn’t been won for several years now. Jamie Best was only a couple of way but sadly he missed this race through illness and it looks like it will be a while before anybody else does!
