WATERSPLASH WEDNESDAY 4th APRIL 2012 Results

In contrast to April 2011 and event the previous week the weather was a big disappointment.

A cold damp overcast evening made life unpleasant for the helpers so special thanks go to

Brian Forrester and Ann Coffey (timekeepers 10km), Nick Edge (5km), Joe Nolan, Harry Wild

and Paddy O'Shea out on the course.

Barry Walters won the 5km event and even he complained about frozen fingers.

The 10km event (Watersplash XXIV)

         

Runners were started in three small groups with just one female, Natalie Ruffell, in the race.

A novel handicappping systerm was trialled with age and weight of the runner being applied 

to the times.(MEN ONLY).  Maybe next year height should be incorporated as well.

Steve Taylor who is very tall and quite heavy and getting faster was a worthy winner.

On age alone, John Coffey was just ahead of Alan Friar but on the WAVA system

Graham Taylor was better than both of them.
