Dorney 10k

Dorney 10k, 12th April 2009 A flat course, decent conditions, but only 1 pb – well done Katherine. Roger won the wine (it’s becoming a bit suspicious), and his report is below.

    Easter Sunday and a trip to Dorney Lake near Windsor where I had never been before.  Race info said race limit of 750 so we got there in plenty of time.  Surprisingly there were less than 150 runners in total.  There were two races – a 5K with 44 entrants and our race which was 10K and had 110 entrants. The Club was represented in both the long and short leagues by 7 Ladies and 4 Men – it wasn’t a bad day for running – overcast but no wind.  It was a very flat course but very uninteresting!  We set off along the side of the lake to a point where we turned round and came back the same way and we had to do that twice!  Well done to Katherine on her PB and also to Ben and Graham who did well to finish 11th and 14th.  Also well done to Becky Clegg on her return to race running and I will try harder to catch her next time!
