Crewkerne 10K Race Report: Jack Clotworthy.
This was another well-organised race by Crewkerne Running Club. 5 Member of R4T took part supported by Jo Stott & son & Karen Clotworthy. For those that have not run this race before it is not Flat. Jack Clotworthy completing it for a 5th Consecutive year and Julius Naim returning to Crewkerne. Rachel Heard and Owen Lewis and James Stott on their Debut did not dissapoint.
Owen was in contension from the off, Up the King of the hill then out to Merriott which in its sefl is a gradual climb, Then on to Hinton St George and the climb back to Crewkerne. Conditions were perfect except for the small flood 2k from Home. Owen was hoping those that went for the King of the Hill would fade but they did not seem to. 3 drink station en route and jelly babies helped the field complete the undulating course. Apart from the R4T members there were lots of familiar faces from Park Run which made a nice atmosphere. Owen completed the Race in 38.31 and finishing 4th. Rachel finished in 41.45 and 1st Lady and Queen of the Hill followed shortly by James and Julius on his tail. I understand Julius got a course PB followed by myself in a time of 51.03 and a course PB by 3 secounds. So all in all 3 Debutants and 2 course PB’s was a good result all round.
The momento was not as good as it has been in previous years. We have had towels and engraved beer glasses but todays was a Head Band, Could be improved!
