Fair to say most people found this race one of the more challenging. Everyone asking each other at the end if they walked up ‘that’ hill or not. The weather was kind to us and it was a downhill finish. Some PBs even and many course PBs. The next winter league race is Desford 6 on the 29th March 2015. This will give everyone a chance to have another go at a 6 mile PB as Desford is less hilly than Kibworth.
26 runners from Hinckley completed the event, 13 men and 13 ladies. So a full team for the men and an A, B and C team for the ladies. No league tables since the first race unfortunately. We will update the President’s Shield positions and 100% over the weekend.
Simon Birch was first back for Hinckley in 7th place, showing his easy weekend of racing in-between half marathons. Great to see so many improved performances across the whole field. With some going for another warm down lap and others setting off to run back to Hinckley (Ed, Lisa and Odette!).
Men’s runner of the day goes to Matt Johnson, he was 18th overall and 2nd back for Hinckley. Well done on a great performance.
Ladies runner of the day goes to Sarah Garford. First lady back for Hinckley and one of her strongest performances recently, well done.
Thanks to Penny and Biscuit for the support. Well done everyone for taking part. No tents were harmed in the running of this event.
