The Dorset Road Race League consists of a series of 12 road races of varying distances throughout the year and is a team and individual competition. The successful running of the League is in no small measure thanks to our very own Sam Munro and Sam is to be congratulated on a very slick presentation of the numerous awards (assisted by husband Simon) which took place on 1 January at the Junction Leisure Centre after the ‘Broadstone Quarter’. In addition to their trophy many of the ladies also received a prize donated by Lush. To win an award requires a considerable level of commitment as at least seven of the races must have been completed to count at all, or all twelve to achieve the ‘Fidelity’ award. So well done to all the BAC winners, but particular congratulations to Simon Munro for winning the competition outright, to the Mens’ Team on winning the Division 1 team competition, and to the Ladies’ Team on winning the Division 2 ladies’ team competition, thus securing promotion to Division 1 for 2014. There is also an award for the best male and female performance of each competing club. The complete list of individual BAC winners is as follows:
Simon Munro; outright winner, age group (25-29) winner, male club winner.
Robin Copestick; second male overall, age group (30-34) winner.
Janie Chapman; second female overall, female club winner.
Ian Graham; age group (65-69) winner.
Caroline Rowley; Fidelity award.
