Sunday's 10k Action

 

Sunday 20th May saw the Larkfield 10k, the 6th leg of the Kent Grand Prix series, also incorporating the Kent 10K Championships. The race was fully subscribed with all 500 places being sold, which included 14 Thanet Roadrunner AC members amongst the 443 finishers. Andy Stevens was the first Thanet Roadrunner AC home in a fantastic time of 37:22 ahead of Chris Brenchley in 2nd place and Steve King in 3rd place. The first Thanet Roadrunner AC lady was Becky Williams who made a winning return in a time of 45:56 in her first 10k race after having to drop out of last week’s Deal Half Marathon due to illness. Second lady was Sarah Harmes in 48:44 just ahead of Debbie Hatt in 49:00. In the middle of the field Stephen Forshaw 44:09 led a Thanet Roadrunners AC group finish ahead of Steve Clarke 44:37 who overtook Ed Heardman 44:38 and John Cooper 44:41 just before the finish line. There were some excellent times recorded by other Thanet Roadrunner AC members. John Cooper recorded his fastest time for the distance since July 2005, despite having been working nights and finishing work at 7am. Stephen Forshaw and Debbie Hatt’s both set new 10k personal bests. Congratulations to all of the team for another great performance.

We’ll have the updated Club Championship and Grand Prix standings later in the week, but I reckon the men have broken 400 points, and although Pam narrowly missed out, Sarah and Debbie once again have picked up points for the fairer sex.

Thanks to Chris Brenchley for the photos on the race page, and Oli Cooper has also put some on the Facebook page.

Elsewhere on Sunday, not a million miles away, Mark Ashmore ran at the Sittingbourne 10k, in a time of 48.10, placing him 65th of almost 200 finishers.
