Here's a gallery selection from the action on Sunday, wherever the team were we had glorious warm autumn weather and lovely sunshine for running in. (not necessarily lovely sun for taking photos - but that's a photographers thing). Not like Novemeber at all really.


Strong finishing

Raaaar!!

No Surrender

The poppy theme was sportingly adapted

Close and competitive finishing

Capturing the moment at the arch

A double Vittel finish wave

High-5 for Dad

Hard finishing, pushing it to the line



 The nice thing about the Preston Park races is that every year you see the talent of the future get faster and faster. And my daughter also now runs (in the u9's) every year. So watch out (in 12 years time..)

 


Fast finishing


Crawley AC put in a good team

Mass start for the U9 race - the talent of the future

With the Brooks Brighton 10k this sunday to mark the end of the running season - it will be a few days off at last (not had a break 24/7 for the past 4 months) so looking forwards to good weather and fish and chips on the sea front.

Until next time,
Anthony
