Victoria's Harrier (Tub repeated its performance in the 10 mile road champs, by finishing in fifth place in the teams' race in the annual 20 mile Gold Cup event.
With the first live runners in each team home counting for points Vic turned in its best performance for several years by actually having a team finish.
The race which starts from the Trentham racecourse consists of four live-mile laps, roughly half cross-country and-half road.
Entries for the race totalled 135. however, only 110 faced the starter and of this number only 70 odd finished the race.
Victoria actually had 8 competitors in the race but Bob Wilson up on section from Christchurch and Ian Hunt withdrew after two laps.
Vies other withdrawal was its colourful, flambuoyant runner Martyn (Che) Fisher who' was involved in a wee bit of a rumble and had to withdraw from the race after one lap in unusual circumstances.
