Sunday 13th February – Stamford St Valentines 30k

Report from Karen Best:

Most girls get flowers for Valentine’s day but not me….I got an entry for the St Valentines 30k road race in Stamford!

The course is described as undulating. Lots of grinding long hills with quick descents and I don’t actually remember there being much flat running. No rain, lots of water stops and jelly babies all mixed in with plenty of local support made for a really enjoyable run.

We were the fourth Valentine pair (cumulative times count), narrowly missing third place by 32 seconds. The first pair came in with an impressive cumulative time of 3:43:51!!

Lloyd was 100th in 2:13:00 and Karen 129th in 2:16:17 (second FV40) (our cumulative chip time was 4:29:17).

Sunday lunch was the highlight of my day though!

The race was won by Neil Renault (Edinburgh) in 1:39:07. Results from stuweb.
