Congratulations to this year’s winner, Patti Cranton, who has now matched husband Wayne’s two victories. Patti won her second trophy by finishing just 9 seconds away from her handicap time with Naomi Mcarthur second and Paul Wade and Michael Miller tying for third. Her first win came in 2010.
Wayne of course got the second of his victories just last year – cue cheesy trophy handover photo.
Congratulations to Wayne Cranton, winner of this year’s Cliffs Handicap just two seconds outside his handicap time, a mere 22 years since his first victory. There are not too many of us around who remember that, and the only other runner in today’s race who ran in that same race was a certain… Patti Cranton. However, Christine Bland was out on the course marshaling today and you will see some familiar names in the results, which have recently been retrieved from the Running Free archives. Back in those days the winner was decided simply by fastest run against a handicap time.
