In the F35 category Amy-Jo Clarke (4th), Cecilia Siruffo (5th) and Michelle Collins (10th) picked up team silver medals, with Sarah Fiddes providing excellent backup in 14th. In her first cross country race since school days, Beth Davies finished a very strong 10th in the F45 category. Susanna Harrison picked up our first gold medal of the day with a clear victory in the F55 race.

 GGAC also had Louise Wood at the European Masters Championships in Italy.

The weather on the Friday evening was hideous. Torrential rain and no cover for the entire competition which lasted over 1hr 40mins. In very difficcult conditions and a less that perfectly organnised competition, it was very diffcult to maintain concentration.

On a warm sunny afternoon, a large squad of GGAC runners took on 26 other Surrey-based clubs in the County Road Relay Championships held at Wimbledon Park. 

With each leg comprising of just under 3miles, including a sharp climb up past the famous tennis courts of SW19, the Guildford teams were keen to put in a strong performance in the build up to the Southern Road Relays later in the month.
