Sunday saw the second running of the Epsom Perch XIII at Nonsuch Park. A distance just past 10k it's an off road - two lap park based race. With over 380 runners its a well attended race and very popular with the local clubs as a start of the year 10k(ish) benchmark, although 35:02 on this course means that Guy Bowles (Datchet Dashers) won't be too worried about his early season performance if he keeps that up.

A home win for Becky McNicolas ( Epsom Oddballs) in the ladies for a 40:19 lifted the locals, but for age graded performance win went to Phyllis Flynn (Stragglers) for an 82.75% result, ahead of Neil Reissland (Collingwood AC) with 81.52% who also came 3rd overall.

There was a mix of first timers, experience and getting the annual club challenges in - and for reasons unknown East Grinstead Tri team turn out in force for this race and endear us all with their shiny purple tri suits, although to register a PB by 3 minutes at this time of year Stuart means we expect more and faster later in the season...

Round of applause for Epsom Oddballs for their Mayor

On his way to victory
Happy hands
Good running across the route
Through the woods to victory
Edenbridge hunting in packs

Just don't stop there, right in front of the finish

Which way ? (map behind you, finish over here)

Stuart - you would have taken more than 3 minutes off without the ankle weights
Very well done to everyone on completing the race, especially the first timers, and best of luck with your training for the rest of the season.

Here's next weekends 10k races that are worth a look:
