Quicksand 15


A field of 70 hardy souls braved the North Sea wind buffeting the Thanet Coast to complete the 2010 running of the multi-terrain Quicksands 15 mile race earlier today.  With the tide heading in quicker than expected, the latter runners were directed off the beach at Joss Bay, for a slightly less gruelling finish.

Istead and Ifield dominated the front end, claiming the team prize, with four of the first five home.

Istead’s lead runner Simon Parrin won in just outside 1hr 47 just over a minute ahead of Steven Groom of Larkfield, with a further two minutes back to Joe Cumberland in third.

Melanie Burdett of Beckenham RC led the ladies back in 1hr 56, two minutes ahead of Canterbury Harriers’ Sarah Maguire and Larkfield’s Nicola Groom.

Andy Stevens was the first Thanet runner home in 7th, just under 1hr 55. Nine Roadrunners completed the course.

Very well done to everyone in tough conditions! Full results and details of prizewinners are now available.
