Dorking 10 2013 gallery now live

Afternoon !

Just the one race this weekend, after the busiest May we have ever had, it was almost like a weekend off, however by comparison this week coming we have 4 days booked out - so no rest planned !

I hope you managed to get out for a run in the sun over the weekend - this week is looking good too.

So Sunday was the Dorking 10 mile road race including the Surrey County 10 Mile Championships:

Out from the blocks at 1 mile Kieran (126) and Will (177) took the race  lead

The Surrey Hills in the background to the north made a nice backdrop

At 4 miles a slight break away by Will

The following pack with winning Lady 423 Emily Wicks

Scenic running for James (185) from Epsom

RPAC's Gavin passing the time with Neil  (who beat him by a place as revenge)

more team running from RPAC, smiling and enjoying the sun

Meanwhile Kenny decided to surrender at 4 miles

Race directors get their pictures in the Blog, Here's Graeme

See, another Race Director... Here's Heather

Fishing tales from 118, apparently it was *this big*

After the Jazz hands they broke out into a Moody Blues number

At the end Kieran took the win by 3 seconds for 54:39 from Will, and an age grading of 82.31

The constant stream of the 482 finishers across the line

Emily finished in 59:07 for the win and a better age grading of 83.53


Neil Dyson cleaned up the finish straight for 106th place (I'm reliably informed he's never heard *that one* before) 

Best age graded performance was Jane with 88.01 and 1:13:18chip time  - Ladies V60-65

Getting busy at the finish at around the 1:14 time

John took on a lot of oxygen getting into the final straight for a 1:18:40 chip time

Whizzing along the countryside, and a blue sky - what more do you want from a race ?

Well done to Sheena and the Dorking MVAC team on putting on another excellent championship race in near perfect weather conditions, and we hope to see you all out at another race soon.


Next Races
The next race for your diaries is the Worthing 10k. It's been held in horrendous conditions over the past years - but this year looks like it's going to be perfect summer evening racing at the Goring Gap.
Get yourself over there for a bit of summer evening relaxation for a run, or a bit of post work stress relief by shouting "encouragement" at the runners on their 2 lap jaunt.

If you fancy a swim on Saturday - get yourself over to the Raw Energy Pursuits river Arun Swims - http://bit.ly/river-arun-swim-2013-entry  3.7km and a 1.5km with-the-tide river swims - it's going to be sunny so why not get yourself there and then a nice lunch afterwards on the beach ?

Sunday the 9th is the Mid-Sussex Tri at Burgess Hill Triangle centre (race full) or the very scenic but challenging Seaford Half Marathon (entries closed)

After that it's the ever quiet midsummer (!!) weekend with only one race on the Saturday the 15th of June at the aptly named Hurtwood - the race is called "The Hurt" - click here to find out why

Finally good luck to everyone out there just starting their A level exams this week - it's hell on earth, but usually worth the effort...

until next time,
Anthony
