Wet and Wild Weekend For CoSARC Racers
The Wiltshire 10 Mile was run from Melksham to Lacock and back, in wet and windy conditions, on an undulation scenic route writes Vasen Moodley
The runners benefited from a strong tail wind on the outward leg to Lacock, but then faced rain driven by increasingly strong headwinds on the return leg. Despite the weather, many locals turned out to lend their vociferous support to all the runners. There were magnificent performances all round. CoSARCs finishing times were Paul Downie 1:12:53, James Ballard 1:16:00, Di Mattingly 1:21:07

On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, in the Darius Dixon Memorial Invitational in Lynchburg, Virginia, USA Jaymee Domoney continued his solid indoor track & field season in the One Mile race. Not only did he break the school record by crossing the finish line in 4:04.57, Jaymee also beat his previous PB by four seconds, and moved into the Big South's All-Time Top 10 listing. He finished in a creditable 11th place out of a field of 72 runners.
Will Ewens continued his fine form when he represented the Army at the Inter-Services Cross Country Championships against the RAF and the Navy at RAF Halton. Will said he always considers it a privilege to be selected to wear the Army Vest.
