Spencer Unsworth

The summer series of handicap races reached its conclusion last week with the first three championship places still to be decided.

Francine Toy had another fantastic run to record a PB and finish 3rd and Connor Norman, Ben O’Hara, Kallum Illingworth, Rebecca Tate, Chloe Norman and Simon Holt all ran personal bests.
