Runners race the Breezy Coastal Conditions at the Alan Green 10 Mile Memorial Race

A challenging wind greeted runners in the second half of Sunday’s 'Miles and Barr' Alan Green Memorial 10 mile race, and only the speedy avoided the rain!

This year's race had 229 finishers with Michael Coleman coming out best in a tussle with Daniel Watt, to claim the win by nine seconds in 55 minutes 14 seconds. Thanet’s own Shaun Mason finished an excellent third in 61.28. Faye Roberts of Canterbury Harriers won the women’s race and was home in just 69.21.  Sarah Mooney made it three years in a row, as runner up with a creditable 71.04. Tri Spirit Team’s Alison Scantlebury was third back in 75.49.

The race had a big showing from Thanet Roadrunners AC club members, even with many working behind the scenes supporting debut race director John Hunt.  There were 27 Thanet Roadrunners who ran with many achieving personal bests over the distance. There were three Thanet men in the top 8 with Shaun Mason finishing 3rd, Owen Mitchell was over two minutes behind in 5th, a minute clear of Chris Brenchley in 8th.  As for the ladies, Claire Rodd was 4th lady home.

Without all this help, the race would not be able to go ahead.’

The next event on the Thanet Roadrunner calendar is the gruelling Mountain Bike Duathlon which takes place on 11th January 2015, for which entries are now open. The club will shortly be accepting entries for the returning Thanet 20 mile on 1st March 2015, ideal for spring marathon preparation.  The Harbour Wallbanger beach race returns on 23rd May 2015, with the Marathon and Half Marathon next September.
