Club 6, 2018

11 March 2018

In between the recent blizzards we were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day for the annual club 6 mile road race around the undulating roads of Thurstonland.  If you are not familiar with the race, it is a handicap event with a staggered start. Meaning first home wins! We had 29 runners out on the Sunday morning. Some familiar faces and some new.

Club6 RC

Richard Croft, Handicap winner

Richard Croft was the handicap winner. 2nd out of the pens he took the lead early and held off all the competition. Running a best time for the distance by 5 minutes. A brand new member to the club and already the burden of a trophy to clean.

Club6 SD

Sean Doyle, David Drake, Carl Sheard

Club6 HK

Heidi King, Lesley Ewart, Richard Wheeler

Club6 distance

Lap 2, heading towards the finish line

Fastest time on the day was Chris Beadle, sneaking under 38 mins. Lesley Ewart made a return to the roads and was the fastest lady in 44:28.

I have posted some pictures on the club FaceBook page.

All runners are awarded with 10 bonus points towards the 2018 Road Championship. The next race is Salford 10k (now full) but there are plenty more races to come! Get over to the road section for more details.

The Club 5 and 10 mile races will take part in summer on a club night so keep an eye out for the announcements.

Thanks to all the volunteers (especially Roger B).

See you all next year.
