The penultimate race of the season was hosted by Braintree and District Athletic Club, on Sunday.

The event took 154 runners, from six local clubs, on a slippery five-mile route through Great Notley Country Park.

Grange Farm was represented by 14 men and seven women; the first seven men and four women scoring team points.

Fastest for the men was Steve Read, in sixth position, followed by Paul McKenna, Jason Wintin, Dan Reynolds, David Spencer, Ashwin Shah and Ian Baines.

For the women, team points were scored by Jane Smith, Hayley Smith, Gillian Robertson and Tara Corbett.

GFDR’s men finished third behind Leigh-on-Sea Striders and Springfield Striders.

Leigh-on-Sea also won the women’s event, ahead of Braintree, Springfield Striders, GFDR, Little Baddow Ridge Runners and Mid-Essex Casuals.

The final race in the series will be held at Little Baddow on February 16.
