The Chard Flyer - Darren Frost

 

 

Chard Flyer 1

 

There was a good attendance by CRC members at the Chard Flyer which is the first race in the CRC Championship.  Conditions for running were perfect although it was a bit chilly waiting at the start.  This is quite an undulating run with what feels like more up hills than down!  From my point of view I enjoyed the race.  It was good to have a bit of a battle with Downhill Dave Carnell, I really did witness how he got his nickname when I put in a real effort to catch him up the hill to the half way point only to see him quickly disappear into the distance on the way down!!  I was also chuffed to overtake our most improved runner Paul Quinton with half a mile to go only to have him overtake me 100 yards from the finish (I did mutter a few swear words to myself!!).  Well done to Ed and Paul for their top 10 finishes, to those who managed 10K pbs and everyone else for racing on New Years Day!
