A great day at the South-West Sprint Championships in Blandford yesterday, saw WSX come away with 5 champions! The event was organised by Wimborne on two areas : Stour Meadows and Blandford St Mary. The weather was glorious and people sat outside on the grass chatting and relaxing in between the Prologue and Final events.

The winners were:

W10 Lyra Medlock     W75 Chris Brown (out of ‘retirement’!)

M40 Jolyon Medlock    M50 Dale Paget

M60 John Cook (by 10 seconds!)

Other runs worth a mention: Jason Falconer came 2nd on M45, missing out by 20 seconds, and Roger came 2nd on M50.


Here are a few photos taken at the Finish of the Prologue in Stour Meadows:
