Super Series Race 5 results

The Fifth Super Series race took our members to the hills and back. The searing sunshine had decided to hide for the evening, which will have suited our athletes a whole lot better, but that’s not to say it was cold and it was still extremely mild up on the Downs if not a tad breezy.
We must say a massive well done to all those that were strong in mind and body who took up the Hill Champs challenge this year. With both of last year’s winners not here for this year, it did mean that there would be a new champion for 2019.
We had 33 finishers from 34 starters who all started with 30 seconds between each athlete.
We would like to say a massive thank you to Brigitte Groves for taking time out to get this one organised, which does take a lot of organizing to get this right and a fine job she did as well!! Also our huge thanks to our Arena volunteers for the evening as without them then the race could not have gone on so Michele, Holly, Chris, Mike, Andy and Alice please be stand up and be counted for helping to make the race a such a great success
