Westbury Lions 10k Run – Results & Report
This was a new event for us, but with great attendance of over 60 runners from local clubs and enthusiasts we hope we can now make this a regular entry on the Westbury Lions event calendar!
Starting and finishing at the White Horse Country Park, Westbury, the route enjoyed some wonderful scenery along the lower slopes of the Westbury White Horse and across some varied and challenging terrain. Thankfully the weather was on our side, with sunshine interrupted by occaisional cloud providing a welcome break for the runners out on the course.
The event began promptly at 11am, with Lion Kevin leading at the front of the pack, setting the pace for the group (although he was riding his push-bike!). The route followed the bridleway of Lower Westbury Road, heading out towards Bratton, before snaking left through the lower part of the village and heading back via Capps Lane.
The 5km marker provided a welcome water station managed by Lion Bill and able volunteer Jackie, with runners then pushing on along Capps Lane and across the fields to the Country Park for the finish.
Congratulations to overall winner and fastest male runner Steve Newcastle (Race No. 13), who finished in a time of 34:26, closely followed by fastest female runner Amy Chalk (Race No. 47) who came in 10 seconds later with a time of 34:36.
A big thank you goes out to all the runners who supported the event today, and we are very grateful to you for all the praise and thanks received on the day. Further thanks to all the volunteers who supported the club today, and of course Lion Nick and his wife Angie for coming up with the superb idea in the first place!
We should also offer our apologies to those runners who were unable to collect a finishers certificate today, because we had used them all up! You can download a copy here.
