The Cleeve Cloud Cuckoo Land 5 – 5 June 2015

This mid week multi-terrain race was organised by Cheltenham and County Harriers and was more like a 5.5 miles as opposed to 5 miles.  The start and finish of the race and the Race HQ was at Cleeve Hill Golf Club between Cheltenham and Winchcombe.  This undulating, challenging evening race was run in perfect conditions entirely on Cleeve Common and the Cotswold Way with a steep climb towards the end of the race up to Cleeve Cloud, run mostly on grass footpaths but with stretches of gravel and stones.  The course was a figure of eight and was clearly marked and taped and well marshalled.

This race was on the Malvern Joggers Champions League and Julie Caseley won her age category (FV55) in a time of 50:25.  The Joggers were led home by Chris Smallman in a time of 39:47 followed by Megan Judge (44:40), Ian Walwyn (47:01), John Bryan (47:16), Mark Cooling (49:33), Ewelina Skolimowska (49:34), Steve Roode (51:04), Alison Priest (51:13), Rachel Cashmore (51:19), Amanda Duncan (52:32), Andrew Banham (52:42), Mike Anstey (53:05), Glyn Davies (54:21), Suzie Lane (55:50), Lynda Broadway (58:39), Vivien Tolley (1:00:51) and Sarah Lane (1:03:59). Julie
