BCR Shine at Woodhall 10k
It was another very warm and sunny day for the annual Woodhall Spa 10k and Boston Community Runners had five runners representing the club. John Burton was joined by ladies Samantha Cross, Nicola Irving, Fiona Wrisberg and Sarah Burton for the scenic 6 mile run.
With two very welcome water stations on route the runners headed out of Woodhall Spa into the countryside to the back of Stixwould, round the edge of the village and back down Monument Road entering Jubilee Park to a crowd lined finish straight. John Burton from Kirton was back in 43.55 with Sarah Burton the next club runner back in 58.28 bagging a new 10k PB by 10 seconds. Suttertons Samantha Cross overcame recent training setbacks to produce a flying finish overtaking four runners in the home straight. “It wasn't my best run”, she said. “But it was certainly my best finish!” Sam clocked a 1.08.08 The most satisfying result was for Fiona Wrisberg and Nicola Irving who tackled their first ever 10k run since they started running. Running together they were absolutely thrilled to finish in 1.20.45 and this was after the pair had completed a Race for Life Pretty Muddy 5k on the Saturday.
