Cotswold Classic Witney 10m
Date:11 Sep 2011
Distance:10 miles
Full results:

This is advertised as a tough 10 mile one lap road race in the picturesque Cotswold countryside: it lives up to that description.

On this course, there are a lot of sharp descents and ascents. There is also an endlessly long but gentle climb of about 90m, the gentle hill lasting for 4K from Crawley to Leafield. So the course is quite a challenge.

The race takes place on pretty country lanes and roads where there is little traffic. It was sunny but not too warm, and there was a strong, gusty wind at times. There were water stations at 1.2M, 5.2M and 8.1M. The race was very well marshalled.

This is one of the races of the Oxon Grand Prix and it is also one of the races of the HRR Road Championship. So, as you can see from the table below, there was a big turn-out from HRR.

Charlotte Harris was the 3rd SL.

The race was also a County Championship race. In this, Adrienne Hopkins was the 3rd VL35. And Charlotte Harris, Adrienne Hopkins and Sally Howard won the Silver Ladies County Team Prize.
