Fleets make winning a family matter across two generations
JULIAN Boon was one of the few athletes to defy conditions at the Dursley Dozen.
He was 45th of 441 finishers overall and ninth in his category in 1:43.38 – slower than last year but 31 places higher.
The Mallard's Pike Valentine Pairs was the first race of the season hosted by FoDAC, with races for both adults and juniors as well as a class for Canicross trail runners.
For the adults one of the pair had to run the first leg of 5.5K and then hand over to their partner to run an additional 3.2K.

The course is part of the Adidas Trail, which had succumbed to the poor weather and the Wyedean Rally the previous day and was extremely muddy.
There was a terrific family victory for the Fleets, with Sharla and Leyton taking first in the veterans and their son Jack and his partner Megan Creed taking the Under-18 category.
Mark Matthews and his partner Joanne York took first place in the seniors.
The juniors each ran a perimeter lap of the 800m Mallards lake.
Despite the appalling weather conditions there was a great turnout in all the classes.
