Alison Pye reports -
Glorious sunshine and unusually warm conditions for the time of year greeted runners for the Sunday instalment of the Carsington Water 10k and Half Marathon. A complete contrast to the freezing temperatures and course last year.
In the 10k Dennis Holmes was first home for MAC, closely followed by Alison Pye who claimed 2nd FV35. Billie Rose Pursglove completed her first ever 10k race, smashing the 1 hour mark recording 57:37 and completing the MAC quartet was Lisa Tink. The overall winner was Liam Bradbury in 36:18 and the ladies event was won by Lynn Birchall (Stadium Runners) in 42:28, also claiming the FV45 prize.Rachel Lane was the sole representative for MAC in the Half Marathon, finishing with a smile on her face in 1:59, after worrying she wasn't quite ready for a half. The event was won by Daniel Robinson in 1:16 and the ladies honours went to Holly Rush (Avon Valley Runners) in 1:25
