Race Date: Sunday 28th February 2016
In case you didn’t know, the Longshaw Trust10 is a free 10k held once a month that encompasses the beautiful National Trust Longshaw Estate. Just the ticket on a Sunday morning if no other races clash!
It was cold, crisp and clear with a thick frost on the ground. This made the muddy sections of the course a lot harder underfoot than in the January Trust10 edition. Amusingly, runners were told to listen and look out for woodpeckers during their run. I for one didn’t hear or see any!
The 10k race was won by Phil Skelton in his first appearance wearing a Striders vest. He ran it in 40:44. First female over the line was Natalie Neville in 50:07.
138 runners ran the whole 10k. A further 6 ran 5k. 19 Striders took part in the event.
