This 10k is a two lap race which uses a mix of Eynsham's main streets and the roads that bypass Eynsham. It was timed using chip-to-chip. The race requires a lot of marshals and they did their job well.
It is advertised as flat and fast but I always find it difficult to get a good time partly because there are quite a few stretches on thin footpaths and some on grass verges. A PB was even more difficult today as there was a strong headwind when we ran alongside the A40.
There was a solid turnout from HRR: we had about 60 runners. Despite the strong headwind, several achieved PBs.
The two photos show Chris Dettmar and Diane Moore out on the course. Chris's time of 32:56 broke the club's Male v40 record - beating Vasili Zverev's time at the Eynsham 10K back in 2005 by 2 seconds. In today's race, Chris was the 1st Male v40 and Diane was the 2nd Female v35. Our first three women (Diane Moore, Charlotte Harris and Elizabeth Barker) won the female team prize. And in the male team prize competition Chris Dettmar, Richard Skilbeck, Tim Doole and Rob Stewart came fifth.
Thanks to John Harvey for the two photos.
