Fernandez led home a field of 198 over the challenging nine-mile multiterrain course in 55mins 11secs as the race was revived by Reading-based Barnes Fitness after an eight-year absence. David Jackson, from Benson, was second in 56.48, while Dan Hamilton, another Abingdon athlete, finished third in 1hr 24secs. Cholsey-based Sarah Dudgeon (Ser- pentine) took the ladies’ honours in 1.06.51, with Olney Roadrunners' Juliette Mintner second in 1.09.32. Third overall was another Cholsey resident, Becky Hibbert, in 1.11.55, while Abingdon’s Sarah Lackman was the third senior lady in 1.12.37. Race director Ellie Barnes said: “It’s a tough route at the best of times and it was particularly challenging this year because of both the mud caused by recent flooding and the weather on the day. “But we’ve had only positive feed- Bolton and Carter on song at windy Bourton JAMES Bolton and Sophie Carter were Oxfordshire’s leading performers at the Bourton 10K. Woodstock Harriers’ Bolton finished seventh and retained the vet 40 men’s title he won last year. Carter, who lives in Woodstock, but now runs for Belgrave Harriers, was third senior lady. Strong winds meant times were slower than expected on what is usually a fast course. Bolton crossed the line in 33mins 18secs, while Carter clocked 38.10. Diane Moore (Headington Road Runners) was the first vet 35 lady home in 40.14. Problems with marshalling meant several runners crossed the finish line on their penultimate lap of the back and we’re looking forward to making the Cholsey Chase a regular fixture from now on. “We attracted a mixed field with a lot of club runners from around the region – Abingdon AC made it a club championship event – but also a good number of unattached runners.” Scott Smith-Bannister (Aldershot) took the vet 50 men’s honours after finishing fifth in 1.01.48. Abingdon’s Matthew Hart was the vet 40 champion in 1.05.26, while Mike Hollis (Handy Cross) won the vet 60 category in 1.15.36. Reading AC member Susan Francis, from Goring, took the vet 40 ladies’ prize in 1.13.59. Kate Williamson showed she is still a force to be reckoned with when landing the vet 60 honours. The 68-year-old Eynsham Road Runner, who is consistently in Britain’s top five for her age group, clocked 1.20.30 to finish 68th overall. Her Eynsham clubmate Katherine Bates was the first vet 50 lady home in 1.18.36. Bunn shines at the national FIONA Bunn maintained her strong recent form with a top-20 placing in the Saucony English National Cross Country Championships at Wollaton Park, Nottingham. The Abingdon athlete finished 17th in the under 15 girls’ race over 4km, clocking 16mins 9secs. Abingdon clubmate Nick Wiltshire (11.53) was 38th in the 3km under 13 boys’ event. Oxford City’s Gemma Bridge was the county’s leading performer at senior level. Bridge finished 60th in the ladies’ event, clocking 32.00 for the 8km course. Jonny Cornish (Hercules Wimbledon) was the only member of Oxon’s men’s team selected for the Inter-Counties Championships to com- DAN Studley helped England to victory in the Brooks Armagh International 5K road race. The Oxford Brookes University student finished 12th in 14mins 28secs. Studley was England’s second scorer as they won the team event by five points. He said: “I felt great for the first 3km, but as the race pushed on I didn’t quite have the race sharpness I wanted. “I still ran a two-second personal best to top the English under 23 rankings. “With 45 athletes breaking 15 minutes, it was easily the strongest road race in Europe.” Studley’s England joy THIRD: Sophie Carter produced a fine run Picture: Barry Cornelius village and have therefore been listed incorrectly in the results.

RADLEY’S Rose Webb defied 60mph winds to win a silver medal at the British Masters 10-mile road championships in Maryport, Cumbria. Webb finished second in the over 65 ladies’ category after clocking 1hr 50mins 46secs. Run over an undulating course, athletes battled against rain and a very strong headwind for most of the second half of the race. THE under 15 girls were Oxfordshire’s leading performers with a third-place finish in the south east regional sportshall finals at Burgess Hill. Oxon’s under 13 boys came fourth, with their under 13 girls and under 15 boys fifth.
