Gordon takes the honours - 1/3/14

The beautiful spring-like conditions belied the very heavy going on the common for the long distance handicap so it was a day when our speedier members came out on top.

New member Daniel came a creditable fourth ahead of Claire who was fastest lady on the day. Results below.
