Race Date: Saturday 18th June 2016
The Three Lakes Classic is a scenic mixed terrain trail race organised by the Killamarsh Kestrels, so called due to the three lakes it goes around. It is just under 15 miles long, with nearly 600 feet of ascent.
The conditions over the previous few days meant the course was very muddy in places, making it especially tricky at times for anyone wearing road shoes – particularly in the wooded areas.
245 runners finished the race and were rewarded with tea and cake galore at the end. 26 were Striders. Particular mention and congratulations to Rio Cooper, who was the winning lady in a time of 1:53:54, and to Robert Foster, who was the third placed male. The winner was Nick Sparks of Hallamshire Harriers, in a time of 1:33:23.
Dave Palmer (Now a second claim Strider) ran as a Hallamshire Harrier and came second overall with a time of 1:35:36. Dave Perkins ran as a Killamarsh Kestrel (Second claim) on his birthday and got a time of 1:55:10.
Striders raring to go:
