Cracker 2013

Cobra Christmas Cracker 2013

45 Cobra and Halesowen Triathlon Runners braved muddy conditions in Uffmoor Wood to participate in the annual Christmas Cracker Handicap Race.  The seasonal best dressed Santa was won by Chris Pearson ‘the only thing he has won this year’ he commented!

The race was won on handicap by Dave Hulston from HTC in 43.16 followed by Jade Phillips from Cobra in 43.46 and Lee Bromley in 45.06, the fastest Cobra titles being retained by Steve Cleary in 30.52 with Amy Sheppard running a very good 32.16 to take the fastest lady trophy.

Every competitor received a bottle of wine after well-deserved refreshments.
