On June 23 the Sublime Midsummer 10K took place on a sunny morning, attracting 600 runners. It is a hard-standing surfaced course through the heart of the beautiful Ferry Meadows, less than three miles from Peterborough city centre. The course is relatively flat in main, with a few ups-and-downs and takes in varied landscapes of meadows, lakes and woodland in one of the largest country parks in the region.
Adrian Searle was first home for FRC in a time of 52:59 and 211th out of 622 runners, followed by Sarah Gauvin in a time of 55:15 and 260th overall and finally Rachael Nichols in true ‘sub-60’ style in 58:44 and 344th overall.
