Lloyd BIDDELL (362) of Mercia Fell Runners stormed home in a new course record time of 31:48 at the Tamworth 10k (October 7th) Castle Grounds in the town, the start/finish venue, was really buzzing on a cool but fine early Autumn day. 2nd place went to Tamworth AC’s Sylvain Letendart (499) in 33:55 with Andrew Wood (511) in third at 34:46.
First female was Emma Peel (687) of Peel Running Club who finished 14th overall in a very quick 38:08 followed by Rachel Burchell (622) in 38:39 with Olivia Harris (524) third in 40:38.
The race in aid of local charity the Stan Bowley Trust saw a record entry for the third year running which delighted Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events; “Fantastic event today, perfect conditions meant lots of fast times on the flat scenic route, and plenty of smiles at the finish.
