Race Date: Sunday 23rd December 2018
Weather wise, this was a vile day. The marshal at the top of the first hill said that he was at first concerned they might have to cancel due to lack of numbers caused by the weather but he soon realised we were all mad because there was more of us than ever! I think the marshals are madder than us as they have to stand there for over an hour not doing much and getting cold and wet. So, from all of us, a massive thank you to the marshals and organisers of the Trust 10 today, and for all year. We’ve had a great few runs up round Longshaw – long may it continue – and without the kindness and generosity of the marshals giving up their time, it wouldn’t happen.
There were 265 runners for this event, the last of the year. It was won by runner 4094 in 39.03. First Strider that we know of was Stu Carrack in 43.54. First woman Strider and maybe first overall was Caroline Brock in 45.59. Well done to all Striders taking part.
Finally, perhaps Facebook question of the year has to be:
Longshaw fans….. I will be ok in racing flats…………. won’t I..
The results below answers that question!
