On Saturday 24th June, 9 members of GRC took part in the Rutland Water 10km race.
As the name suggests it was a run round part of the beautiful setting and backdrop of Rutland Water. The route was an out & back from Whitwell to Normanton and has been described by some runners as twisty but with a nice downhill finish.
Albeit warm, the conditions on the day were favourable with a light breeze across the dam, this certainly helped with the fast times achieved by many of the runners.
First back for GRC and finishing in 2nd place overall was Russel Whittaker in 36:27 gaining him his second podium finish of the season and a new PB. Next back and first female for GRC was Hannah Whittaker who crossed the line in 44:58, earning her the sub 45min she was aiming for as well as a PB. She was soon followed by a strong performance by Clive George in 47:06.
Nicci Whittaker was next to cross the finish line in 49:04 smashing the sub 50 min target she had been chasing, earning a shiny new PB of over 4 minutes!
Harriet Morgan crossed the line in a very respectable time of 49:53 with Paula Ebbins finishing strong in 54:22. Debs Jones had an absolutely incredible run smashing her sub hour target to finish in 56:29.
Rounding up the day for GRC were Chloe Amos-Reeves in 1:09:16 in and Vicky Willan in 1:09:52.
Some incredible performances by GRC on what has been described as a fast, PB setting course.
