After a wet and windy Saturday the Weather Gods were on our side on Sunday providing fairly good running conditions for the Deal Dinosaur 10 km.
There was a kids 1k race at 9.30 a.m., with many enthusiastic children and some parents taking part. The first runner finishing in 5.03
The 10k started at 10 a.m. The first mile or so was flat but with a fairly strong headwind. This was followed by a series of inclines and flat sections which took the runners inland and along country lanes. At around 5.5k there was a decline which took the runners back to the coastline and back to flat ground.
There was a fairly good turnout from TRACies with 8 runners taking part.
Congratulations to Lee Hardie who took second place in the event with a time of 36.36
