On Sunday morning 7 A&T road runners made the short journey to Spring View, Wigan for the Amberswood 10k. The weather was a bit dull with a drop or two of rain in the air. The race was a 2 lap circuit around the trails, woods and fields around Amberswood. The course in places had more than a feel of a cross country race because of the recent diluge of rain it got a little bit muddy in places.
The race was completed by 109 competitors in which Glyn Kay of Horwich RMI took the spoils with a time of 37.04. Scott Christey was first back for A&T with 40.59 and taking 11th overall. Colin Kay came next with 42.26 to take 16th position. Suzanne Gregory had an outstanding race to take the prize for second lady and 31st overall with a time of 47.38. Hot on her heels and running stride for stride with Suzanne for most of the race was KellyAnne Towns who took the FV35 prize and was 3rd lady with a time of 48.12. Well done ladies. Ray Taylor came in next clocking 49.26 with Dave Crowe not far behind him finishing in 49.54. The Baron had a race he'd rather forget and completed the A&T line with a time of 51.46.
After the race it was time for the free pie and peas for the people who had pre-entered and then the presentation. Thanks to Emma Owen for the photo.
