Leverington Three Counties Running Club's Kim Coultard records Norman Bee 10k best time
An amazing weekend for Three Counties Running Club even with the very warm conditions.
Kim Coultard travelled two hours to North Lincolnshire to take part in the Normanby 10k also known as the Norman Bee 10k.
The race is mixed terrain and starts and finishes at Normanby Hall and goes through the local villages. The race is held during the annual Burton in Bloom event which helps to raise awareness for bumblebees; hence the event name and the bee design medal and T-shirt for all finishers.
Despite the heat Kim managed to bag herself a PB, 53:44secs.
Steve and Sandra Rhodes took part in an unusual out and back cross country race, Beat the Boat Windsor 10k. The race starts at Brocas fields in Eton and a target boat full of spectators is released to try to beat the runners to the finish line. Even with the heat there was some narrow paths and swampy mud patches to tackle. Steve finished in a great time of 48:44 (30 seconds off his PB) and Sandra in 1:09:00.
Six club members took part in the Ramsey Road Runners Abbey 10k. The single lap, mainly flat, mixed terrain course starts and finishes at the Abbey College.
It was another warm event but club members still finished with some impressive times.
The first club member home was Aaron Petts in a great time of 50:16; followed by Vicki Drake in 51:35 (knocking 5 mins off last year’s time), Dawn Ball 55:43, Teresa Rodrigues 56:01, Zoe Gourley 59:43 and Leanne Taylor 1:06:21.
Junior Parkrun: There was 33 runners at Wisbech JPR with 11 being TCRC junior members. First home for the club in 6th place was Hayden Hall 9:32; plus Stephanie Harbord and Keira Fines 10:47, Isaac Western 11:40, Daniel Beitans 11:58, Kallum Hall 12:07, Callum Bates 13:58, Annika Beitane 14:31, William Durkin 16:30, Joseph Durkin 16:38 and Laurence Durkin 24:40.
