The Race gallery for the Ashford and District 10k is now live and online here:
Just make sure you use the whole race number that was on your number bib (some of the numbers had 1000 added to them when compared to the results). i.e. use 1877 - not 877.
Full links to results and race information on the Nice-Work website can be found here: http://www.nice-work.org.uk/events.php?id=10
The results are here: http://niceworkevents.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/sunday-18th-march-2011-ashford-district.html
Rescheduled from the snow in february, totally different, near perfect conditions confronted the competitors and organisers on Sunday at the Sandyacres sports and social club. It made a pleasant change from the rain that has been about for the last few weeks.
|IPCO chip timing being handed out at registration|
|The gentle walk up to the start at the top of the lane was a nice loosener|
|Off at the start, 570 made it on the day, down a bit no doubt due to the rescheduling|
|A gentle enough start down the lane|
|Good to see Ashford Tri Club doing some running|
|The fastest local pizza delivery you could wish for|
|Playing to the crowd at the finish|
|Marshals - where would we be without them ? Lost, that's where.|
|It's lonely out the front - Phil Anthony heading for a 30:55|
|37:09 for Tina Oldershaw, complaining of sleepy legs at the start, so she chose to hover all the way round|
|Remember you run faster when you smile !|
A big thank you to Martin and the Nice Work team, and Ashford & District Road Runners who made everything run so smoothly on the day, even holding the rain off until after everything was packed away.
