Three Belles star at Oxford
Cold and muddy conditions greeted the three Belles, Sophie Harris and Saron Haileselase competing for Surrey, and Samantha Amend for Bucks in the South of England Inter counties match at Oxford.
Sophie gave the race a real go and was in 2nd place until the last long stretch, but then lost a couple of places at the finish. Saron was up with ex Belgravian Mel Wilkins for much of the race and finished in 14th place.
The Surrey pair were delighted to meet Sammi Amend there racing herself back to fitness over a much shorter distance than she prefers.
K. Bingle (Surrey) 19:26, 4. S. Harris (Surrey) 19:57, 14. S. Haileselase 20:38, 46. S. Amend (Bucks) 22:03.
Surrey A 15, 4. Surrey B 65.
