Freethorpe 10 Miles 2020

The “Freethorpe 10” always seems to be run on a windy day and that was no different today but our 16 members taking part didn’t let that affect them as the results below show.
Michael Eccles 3rd overall in a platinum pb time of 54.15. Michael also broke the club record by over a minute and received a county trophy and medal.
Scott Walford 4th overall,1st V45, platinum pb time of 54.53. This was also the course record for the V45 and puts Scott at the top of the UK V45 rankings for 2020. This all bodes well for Scott in his up and coming races in an England vest.

Jack Noble, who improves with every race, was running his first 10 miler finishing in a diamond standard time of 59.44. Once he gets his pacing right there’ll be no stopping him !!

Autumn Hales had a cracking run taking over 7 minutes off her previous time last year finishing in a platimum time of 1.03.44. This is a new ladies club record which was previously held by Faith Viney. Autumn was awarded the 2nd senior ladies trophy.
Nigel Arnold, who is still on the come back trail, finished first V60 in a platinum time of 1.05.11. This was Nigel’s first 10 mile race for BVH.
Paul Ward, in his first 10 mile race ran a gold standard 1.05.25.
Sabina Spence ran 1.11.20 finishing in a trophy winning place of 2nd V45.
Amy Balaam, also another first timer over the distance, ran a gold standard and age best time of 1.12.14.
Colin Robilliard, another trophy winner and running in normal shoes for once, was 2nd 65+ in 1.12.37.
Jonathan Edwards ran a gold standard pb of 1.17.22. That’s pretty good when you consider his last pb was 10 years ago.
Louise Paterson running her first 10 miler ran a silver standard 1.19.05.

Leanne Botwright who is in training for the London Marathon ran a bronze standard pb of 1.24.56.

Bob Carter in his first 10 mile race, although he was on the start line a couple of years ago but didn’t make it to the first junction due to a fall and broken arm did get round this year in a bronze standard 1.27.40.
Karen Wraighte still recovering from a chest infection ran 1.29.33.

Natalie Pagett after a long lay off ran 1.33.40

Katherine Mortlock who has been upping the mileage lately was really pleased to run a pb of 1.40.44.

Still to be confirmed but we may have won a bronze medal in the senior ladies team event with Autumn, Amy, Leanne and Natalie.

Well done everyone – superb results and it’s only the start of the year.
