Christine Pout was also celebrating as she took the title in the V50 women’s category.

Emma Knox and brother Alarik Knox of sister club Verulam CC took the honours for the Central Region in the U8 girls’ and U10 boys’ age groups.

Emma was the outright winner of the U8 girls while Alarik came second overall, finding the challenge of new Eastern Region champion, Colchester Rovers CC’s George Collins just too much.

London Colney’s Oli Stockwell was the winner in the junior men’s race.
