Wilmslow Festive 10K 2017 Race Report

For the second running of the Wilmslow Festive 10K runners were greeted with a cool but dry start from Wilmslow town centre. The rain that moved in near the end of the race did not dampen the spirits of the 54 Macc Harriers who raced and certainly did not prevent many runners from attaining PB’s and age group prizes on this fast course.

For the men Mark Walker (33:43) led the Harriers and placed 20th overall in this very strong field missing out on a PB by 2 seconds. Ewan Edmondson (36:36) was the second Harrier over the line gaining a PB for 10K. The third male Harrier to finish was Ciaran Wright (38:50) with another PB.

For the female Harriers Alison Hartopp (42:47) was first Harrier over the line scooping up the female V50 prize. The second female Harrier to finish was Catharine Crossley (45:50) cutting over 4 minutes off her PB at 10K. Close behind was Catherine Wilson (45:59) who also gained a PB for 10K.

Special mention goes to Christine Ritchie (51:13) who won the female V60 prize and gained a PB for 10K.

There were many more excellent performances and times for the Macc Harriers whose times are listed below. Links to the full results and to photos from the race are here:
