Cotswold 10km 27th November 2011
On Sunday a few hardy Striders turned out for a lovely 10km race in theheart of the Cotswolds…
“The Cotswold 10km was described as a flat and
undulating course, not sure where the flat bit was! It definitely was
not a PB course but it was a good one. There were 165 runners 5 of
which were Striders. 4 of us finished and I was told 1 got carted back
by St John’s ambulance because he twisted his ankle. I’m not sure who
this was but wish him a very speedy recovery.
The 4 who finished were Laura Kent, Angela Puffett, Nicholas Von Benson
and Dave Mayo. Laura came in 1st lady, 12th overall in a time of 41.26,
followed by Nicholas in a time of 46.04, he was 45th overall, 61st (and
13th lady) was Angela who set a PB on this course.. well done! and Dave
then came 90th in a very reasonable time of 48.30.
The race was scenic and very well organized. Though not generally a PB
course I would definitely recommend it to fellow runners to try next
