14th April 2013 - Championship Update: Radcliffe 10k
6 runners from Prestwich took on the Radcliffe multi terrain 10K, the 4th race of this year's Prestwich AC Championship. It was quite windy on the course, which sometimes seemed to help the runners along, but was a bit more of a battle in the more exposed areas. The route took in the canal towpaths, went through woods and followed trail paths. It was a good mixture of surfaces, none of them too muddy!! Despite being windy, it felt very warm, which was unusual for the recent weather we've been experiencing!
Despite the off road nature of the course, there were some good times from the Prestwich runners. First home was Dan Cottle in his first Championship race of this year. He finished in a very impressive time of 42.57. Next to finish was Richard Collins, in his 2nd appearance in the Championship. His time was 45.13. Andy Mudd followed with 46.47, then 1st lady home was Alison Allerton in 48.55. Claire Elam was next in 55.32 and Steve Myers shrugged off his recent injury to finish in 57.33.
Well done to all runners today. Check the updated Championship table for latest positions.
Next Championship race is a parkrun which will be mid-May; exact date to be confirmed.
