Benfleet 15 2019

There were lots of nerves this morning, but you couldn't have asked for better conditions and in total contrast to last year! So off we went with hope in our hearts, lots of fantastic support & the sun in the sky!

It was, as usual, brutally hard, it's funny how after 12 months you forget how hard!

Brilliant run by Kate Harris this year, with a bit more experience & in training for the London marathon she ran well and in a good time too. I had a good run. Natalie coped well and finished strong.

Katie Darby also had a good race, she was in a lot of pain at the end, but in true form she dug deep and with a little help up the hill made it back In a very respectable time. Unfortunately for James it wasn't his day, he struggled from early on, but I'm very proud of his determination to finish. He could so easily have pulled out, so huge well done. EVERYONE came in at under 3 hours, such a huge achievement.

The girls also all won Silver medals for being in the top 200. YOU ALL ROCK!

Club members that participated: Kate Harris, Katie Darby, James Webb, Mandy Cooper & Natalie Webb
