Club members celebrated the easing of restrictions on organised sports with a race on Sunday morning. Organised within England Athletics Covid guidance, 34 runners were delighted to return to running together again after months in lockdown. Starting from Brampton Memorial Fields they ran out and back over a 5k and a 10K race route. Runners set off individually at 10 second intervals, ensuring appropriate social distancing. For some it was a return to running after a long break, for others it was a rare chance to run competitively. We all hope it is the start of a return to normal after a year in which all races have been cancelled.
Keelan Duffy completed the 5k race in an impressive 17minutes 33 seconds. Heledd Marshall-Roberts was second ( 23minutes 13 seconds) with Freya Harris a close third ( 23 minutes 30 seconds). Over the 10K race James Orrell was well ahead of the rest of the runners finishing in 34 minutes 31 seconds with Marco Wassersleben in second place ( 45 minutes 19 seconds) and Richard Orrell third ( 46 minutes 43 seconds) .
But everyone was happy to be running together again and cheering everyone home.
A big thanks to the race team of volunteers who made the event possible and to Brampton Memorial Fields for allowing access to the club.
