This Saturday, 29th July, Les will embark on his epic coast to coast run. He has chosen the longest route across the country, from St Davids Bay in Pembrokeshire to Lowestoft in Suffolk, a total distance of around 402 miles.
Les plans to run an average of 26 miles per day over 16 days with a short break in the middle. Keep up to date with his progress on the Kestrels Facebook page.
Good Luck Les!
Many thanks to all the runners who entered the 3-Lakes Classic this year.
Congratulations go the the men’s race winner, Darren King (1:43:17) from Clowne RR, women’s race winner, Sian Evans (1:57:58) from Steel City Striders and the other prize winners. Despite the extremely hot conditions, we hope you enjoyed the revised course layout.
Special thanks must also go to the organisers, the course marshals, the bakers and caterers and all other volunteers without whose help, the race could not go ahead.
A massive thank you to the runners who sacrificed their own race to help our marshall, Steve Salmon who became ill during the event and needed hospital treatment. Thankfully, Steve is now on the road to recovery.
3-Lakes Classic Results 2017
Open endurance event for both regulars and newcomers.
Start: The Harlequin, Nursery St, 1600hrs.
Finish: Butlers Curry House, Late!
For the regulars, usual route, plenty of water stands. Remember, don’t set off too fast as it gets rather technical around the Fat Cat, and very messy by Shakespeares!!!
If it’s your first outing just tag along with a more experienced athlete.
Names of competiters for post event catering to Fiona and Keith so we can get an idea of numbers for Fireman Phil to do his duty in sorting out a table at Butlers.
See you on the start line!!
