Race date: 10th June 2018
Reading the organiser’s blog this race was apparently an overwhelming success but the first thing that strikes you about it is the route with sixty six bends or corners to negotiate. That’s one every 150m which is a joke and can only be described as intestinal. Certainly not a pb course and a route apparently designed with scant regard for the athletes taking part. Otherwise however reports are that organisation was excellent.
Looking through the results this is another race where club affiliations have not been provided although why it’s given for some and not for others is unclear and doesn’t go down as excellent organisation in our book. So, according to the results, no Striders ran the 10k but it is known that Matt Connell ran a pb. On another course he could have run 38 minutes something so a carrot there for him to go and get. It’s a pity that he’s now into training for the York Marathon so opportunities for racing will be limited with his long run taking precendence for the next 18 weeks.
Chip timing, which is essential for a 10k with 2896 finishers unless you have an army of timekeepers and recorders handy. First lady, Katie Clark, managed 37:20 whilst first man to cross the line was Alan Oliver (Sleaford) 33:53. We think that we identified eighteen Striders but please shout up if any errors or omissions have been made.
