Tessa Jackson reports - The inaugural running of the Burbage 10k Trail Race took place on Saturday 25th January organised by Mariocoaching in conjunction with Crazylegs Events. The title of the race was somewhat of a misnomer as the actual distance was 11k and it was more of a fell race than trail.
Starting from the sailing club at Erwood Reservoir the course was a single loop of undulating,boggy and misty off road paths.
It was a tough route but was well marked and the marshalls did an excellent job.
Both Sally Owen and I were spent at the end but we were rewarded with prizes for LV50 and LV60.
Sally finished in 1.28.11 and my time was 1.40.12.
The winner was George Seymour of Dartford Road Runners in 52.50 and 1st female was Caitlin Rice in 53.06.
