Month: January 2019
9 plucky Sawtry runners signed up for this and all completed. For those who do not know, this is a 15 mile, 2 lap course with 3 killer hills on each lap. Today was a glorious winter day so it wasn’t as tough to conquer as previous years when the weather has been pretty dire.
Our first man home was Ryan in 1.40.59. He was followed by Nib in 1.58.59, Travis 2.04.04, Gavin 2.08.35, Meg 2.14.23, Laura 2.23.09, Dan 2.26.03 with Lizzie and mum Andrea crossing the line together in 2.43.34.
Andrea was 6th in her age category, Ryan 13th in his, Nib 14th and Meg 15th in hers.
