Linda Franks Race, 27/1/13

Dimitry Nazarenko led home the Cheltenham Harriers contingent at the Linda Franks 5 mile road race in Hatherley. The fifteen year old was lying fourth at the half way mark, but had to contend with clubmate Dave Rantell closing him down in the later stages. However, the youngster outsprinted the veteran as they claimed fourth and fifth places in times of 28:56 and 28:58 respectively. James Wilkinson was the next Harrier home in a personal best of 30:44 whilst Steve Linton ran a strong second half of the race to clock 31:16. Martin Ford beat all his vet 65 and vet 60 rivals with a time of 32:01 with Dave Hemmings not far behind in 32:34. Paul Barnes clocked 33:24 whilst vet 70 runner Ken Buckle was third over 60 runner home in 37:18.
