A decimal dozen Old Stoics braved the school course on 19 March, aided and abetted by ex-master Stephen Suttle (Former staff 1973 – 1978). The School managed once again to shunt us into 2nd place but Simon Gardner (Temple 95) showed them a clean(ish) pair of heels and won by 40 seconds in 24:06. He was followed home in 6th place by Matt Mahoney (Walpole 94) in 25:59, and a trio of Richard Lloyd (Grenville 94) 8th in 27:23, Nigel Downing (Lyttelton 69) 9th 28:14 and Francis Graham-Dixon (Temple 72) a splendid 10th 28:26.
Editorial constraint restricts me to mentioning that the remaining 5 were Simon Ridley (Walpole 95), Charlie Clare (Chatham 94) plus the ever-present joint Presidents, Marc Hope (Cobham 79) and Richard Weston (Chatham 65).
