You had to buy the t-shirt if you wanted one,
there was no cup of tea after
and there is no longer a medal,
but the ‘The Lakes 10’ race
still gets the thumbs up.
The friendly volunteers and support,
the closed roads,
an accurate course and ‘precision timing’,
a relatively small field
(limited to 600 but actually just short of that),
a fine autumn day,
a samba band
added up to a good day out.
Of course you also had to run.
A new course record of 30.08 was set by Freddy Sittuk.
McMorrow.E.was 4th in category, Willoughby.S.
and McMorrow.K. both 7th in theirs,
Kenny.C. 9th in his.
