Folkestone 10 mile race – SEVEN new PBs!
Folkestone Running Club’s flagship event and was really well organised. Their new completely flat and very fast, out and back 10 mile course was very positively received by all runners. The race was won by Dean Lacy from Cambridge Harriers in an amazing 51 minutes!
The morning was chilly, but as soon as the race went off the sun grew in strength and vests were the order of the day. It’s always warm for this race.
So the all important results…
Jack Bradley 56.06 in fifth place over all and a new PB, 2 weeks before London Marathon!
Jay Bailey 1.01.18 with a new 10 mile PB.
James Figgins 1.08.23 with a threatening Achilles.
Jamie Jordan 1.09.59 went off fast, but the heat was surprising.
James Newing 1.11.20 (new runner) with real potential. PB
Steve Suttle 1.11.59 For a runner in his sixties this is an awesome time!
Spencer Hoult 1.14.03 third fastest 10 mile time.
Brittany Crombie 1.14.12 PB
Jo Kemp 1.14.52 New 10k, 15k and 10 mile PB.
