Race ResultsJigsaw 10K
Twenty+ Guildford runners descended on the Dunsfold aerodrome this morning. Unfortunately, due to postage delays and a lack of spares, some people did not receive a timing chip so are not in the results. Congratulations to Ralph Dale (41:21), Eleanor Walker (46:23) and Rebecca Brennan (47:08) who beat their official PBs despite the windy conditions. Well done to Beth and Kay Davies on their debuts. Fastest of the day from the club (despite being amongst the front-runners who were sent on a longer loop!) was Nick Tearle in 38:03. Fastest Guildford lady (and 2nd F55 overall) was Susanna Harrison in 44:15. Special mention to Mike Garnett and Luke Bishop, who both ran 39:00 less than 24 hours after finishing a trail marathon!
