Bedford Oakley 20

The third 20-mile race of the year sees the Bedford Oakley 20 take place around the countryside of Bedford and taking you through some picture box villages with thatched cottages.  It is a 2-lap course with a larger lap and a welcome shorter lap on the second leg.  It is an undulating course, so good preparation for a spring marathon. 

Caroline Davis was the sole runner for GRC and was looking to go under the 3-hour mark after a disappointing year running.  She finally came in at 2 hours 57 minutes and 23 seconds.  Famed for its hoodie,  this year also sported the March hare but with a change of colour.  The overall winner was David Ball from Rugby and Northants AC in a time of 1 hour 58 minutes and 30 seconds and first lady home was Emily Prejac from Dunstable Lions Running Club in a time of 2 hours 19 minutes and 39 seconds.
