Carson, who had ran in the Birmingham League the previous day, led from the start on the undulating 12k course and finished over a minute clear of runner-up Tom Bristowe (Kingfisher Harriers).

Paul Edwards was third in 44:37 to help Spa Striders win the men’s team prize.

He was joined in the victorious trio by Chris McKeown (5th in 44:59) and Adam Notley (8th in 45:20), with Chris Liddle also making the top ten for Striders in 46:00.

Kenilworth Runners were the second male team, with Alex Atkinson (20th in 47:11) and Ryan Baker (53rd in 49:41) joining Carson.

Leamington C&AC’s Marc Curtis finished in 47:32 (4th MV45).

Leamington C&C’s Natalie Bhangal was the first female across the line in a course-best 47:42, also managing to run the first 10k in a personal best for that distance.

Leamington C&AC’s Jenny Jeeves, who had competed in the Midland League cross-country event the day before, was sixth female and first in her age group in 50:53, with clubmate June Johnson winning the FV70 category in 69:40.

Spa Striders’ Melissa Venables (51:29) picked up the V40 prize, with Carolyn Wilkinson (53:52) and Sue Cox (54:12) joining her in the winning team.

Kenilworth again had to settle for the runners-up spot, with Gail Audhali improving on her second place in 2017 by winning the LV55 category in 54:46.
