Cold and mist greeted us, as we drove into Salford to compete in the 'City of Salford 10k'. The course is pretty flat and fast, with a few u tuns which finds that lactic, and a cruel finish, where you virtually pass the finish line at 9k.
2500 athletes entered the event.
All the A&T'ers taking part had great runs, with a number of Pb's and Sb's.
Gary Stevens 49th - 37.58 - best time for 2 years.
Neil Hodgson 226th - 43.15 - PB i believe. Neil didn't think his legs could go that fast!
Mark Lysycia 444th - 46.39 - Rare performance and now looking forward to x-country. Good effort Mark.
Paul Basnett 587th - 49.02 - 1st 10k for 2 1/2 years. Great time for Paul, shows what he can do without 8 pints around Leigh the night before!
Chris Whittaker 708th - 50.33 - Chris wanted a sub 50 but stopped for a '30 second wee', i didn't time him but his garmin told me everything!
7th lady - Josie Maley 40.42 - Not a PB but still ran fantastically
26th lady (4th F45) Linda Whittaker - 45.37 - Another solid performance
115th lady - Jane Eccleston - 51.10 - Run of the day (again) who is 'on fire' at the moment knocking nearly 3 mins off her PB
220th lady - Emma Higgins - 55.00 - Happy with her efforts and promises to 'stop talking' now at efforts to try and improve!
Great picture of Ron Hill with the two legends, Jane Eccleson and Emma Higgins.
