A sell-out pack of mud-junkies descended on the sixth Dirt Half Challenge in Leighton Buzzard on Saturday 14 November 2015. Conditions were cold with patches of rain and mud underfoot in places but some runners achieved personal bests despite the challenging nature of the course, which included a steep incline at the half way point.
The race was won in a new course record by Max Dillon of Ampthill & Flitwick Flyers in a time of 01:18:26, followed by Jamie Farmer of the Redway Runners in 01:18:36 and Richard Dowling in 1:21:30.
First Lady was Kelly Barnett with an impressive time of 1:29:13, followed by Eleanor Mayne in 01:34:22 and Jennifer Sangster in 1:35:43. Female Vet prizes were won by: Eleanor Mayne FV35, Julie Martin FV45, Alison Rose-Quirie FV55 and Deidre Bethune FV65. Mens Vet categories were won by: Paul Williamson MV40, David Green MV50, Jon Burgess MV60, and Richard Inchley, MV70.
The team prize went to Leighton Buzzard AC: Billy Mead, Adam Haycock, James Bell, Charlie Mead and Tim Inchley.
