Race date: Sunday 19th March 2017
Eton Dorney rowing centre, aside the River Thames and as used in the 2012 Olympics was the setting for a variety of Duathlon and running races over the weekend. As its 1.5 miles in length it made for a perfect course.
Sole Strider, Nancy Stuart continued her racing world tour by competing in the days 10k running race.
Her race report to me described it “as running laps of a wind tunnel”, such was the strength of wind down one side of the lake. Sounds like Rother Valley, no? Must be a ‘water’ thing?
Race winner Liam Wilson seemed to have no bother though as he came home in 35:37. But others must have struggled as he was a whole 5 minutes ahead of second place. The ladies race winner (and third person home), Sarah Dudgeon won in 40:56. There were 146 finishers.
