2011 Kent Grand Prix Round up

 

We now have confirmation of the final standings in the 2011 Kent Grand Prix. As expected, the Men’s team gained a place with the last race at Deal, to move ahead of Cambridge Harrier by just two points, and so finish 7th. The Ladies’ team jumped up two spots, to move four points clear of Invicta East Kent and round off the season in 12th place. Tunbridge Wells Harriers claimed the men’s title, while the ladies’ went to Maidstone Harriers.

As for the individual performances, Steve Suttle was top for Thanet, claiming an excellent 2nd place in the men’s v50, and 15th overall. Steve King was 22nd overall, and 13th in the v40, while Bill Wright finished 12th in the v60. For the ladies, Debbie Hatt led the way, coming 30th overall and 39th in the v35. Barbara Gambrill was the only lady to place in either of the two other categories, placing 19th in the v55. The full results are in the link above.

Very well done to everyone who took part at some point thoughout the year. It was great  to see 27 male and 7 female TRAC runners picking up points, and although there are others who didn’t manage to score, there was a real sense of team spirit, so let’s try and build on that for the 2012 series. Furthermore, next year the Grand Prix races will form the basis of the club championship, so we can guarantee you some points for that even if the more challenging GP points prove more elusive!
