Typically when you want rain there is none to be found, and sadly the ground at Hexham had dried up a little too much for Rinnagree Rosie, and while she still ran a good race and was able to stay on for fifth place, had the ground been softer I think the result may have been quite different.

Adrian said that he was only just getting going when everyone else was pulling up!!! Ideally three miles on heavy going is what she needs.
