A&T Road Wigan 10k
A record 38 people from the club turned up on Sunday for the 5th and largest to date Wigan 10k. As this is my favourite race I decided to add this to the club championships. Being of a large build does have some advantages when it comes to barging your way onto the front row. I wanted to show the people of Wigan how much fun it is being an A&T member. #alwaysrecruiting.
After a slow countdown from from Jack Johnson himself the race got underway at 10am, and for the record I led for the first 2 meters before I let the elites take over.
First 3 men :- Tim Campbell, Gary Stevens and Mark Collins.
First 3 ladies :- Josie Maley, Jackie Price and Susan Fletcher.
Away from the speedsters there were some amazing results across on leagues with quite a lot of close finishes and most importantly PB's galore This just shows that the work you are putting in on club training nights is really paying off
The next road championship race is the Swinton 5.25 mile (1lap) on the 24th September (no need to pre-book)
This is then followed by the Manchester Half Marathon on the 15th October (Must pre-book ASAP)
The club website has been updated with the latest Road Championship standings.
