GRANGE Farm and Dunmow Runners (GFDR) won both the men and women team awards at the 22nd Great Bardfield 10km race on Sunday.
Starting at the village primary school, the course took the 108 runners on a multi-terrain route, mainly along the road but including paths and tracks. The relatively flat course and good running conditions led to a number of personal best results.
The event was won by Andrew Mynott of Saffron Striders in 33mins 59secs.
For GFDR, Dan Reynolds in 4th position was fastest in a PB time of 39mins 3secs. There were also PBs for Jason Wintin (39mins 51secs), James Huertas (42mins 18secs) and Simon Singleton (47mins 32secs).
Geoff Maidment was 3rd for GFDR, in 40mins 52secs. David Andrews, in 44mins 8secs, was just 4 seconds faster than Ian Lawson. Stuart Warwick (48mins 7secs) was followed by John Hardy (48mins 39secs), Lee Prowse (52mins 11secs) and Simon King (54mins 26secs).
The fastest woman was Anita Cox of Braintree Athletic Club in 41mins 1secs. For GFDR, Natalie Herbert won the V35 age category in 46mins 53secs.
