Tysoe Windmill 10k Race.
Sat 4th June
Report – Max Ross
Following on from last week’s report on the 5k, the 10k variant took the same course through the village and meandering fields, with a relatively flat start leading to a hard push up to the Windmill.
A brief moment to enjoy the view was followed by a rapid descent down steps, over fields, up grassy embankments plus a faster road section, back to the Windmill to retrace our steps into Tysoe.
The route has something for everyone, as long as everyone is OK with a little hill effort or two!
The winner, Simon Wurr of Thames Hare & Hounds, beat his previous effort by 2 minutes completing in 37:59 and first lady Nicky Baker of Balsall Common Run Club finished in 50:35 having taken 5 minutes off her previous time!
Taking 4th place, Huw Crosweller was the first SAC finisher in 43:18 with a 2 ½ minute improvement on this course, followed by Robin Langhorne in 15th at 48:48. Next over the line was SAC’s first lady, Suzanne & Max Ross at 51:15. Also coming in under the hour was Lesley Kirk in 57:20 followed by Suzi Graham in 59:55. Kate Sergent crossed the line at 1:06:41 and Lindsey Anderson in 1:17:54
The turnout for this event was sadly down nearly 50% on previous years but it is such a nice location, with fantastic cake afterwards and handmade finisher medals and prizes – if you have not done it before, get it in the calendar for next year!
