Report from Mark Hall:
This was my third 10m race this year after Snake Lane (poor weather) Thirsk (poor form) I decided to run in this new event, this despite it being a scandalous £18 to enter! It is advertised as flat but sure I ran up a few long drags this was confirmed by other runners and not me hallucinating! I mentioned this to the organiser and he said he had driven the circuit in a car and it was flat! My target was a UK best V55 at 10m, I had missed it by 9 seconds at Thirsk so I was pleased to lower it here by 6 seconds think I also managed to shave a few seconds off the club record ( sorry if all this sounds like an old bloke blowing his own trumpet!) Conditions were very good with only a light wind. There were 3 of us from OAC (see above). I did not see Rogan or Phil after the event so I am not sure if they are pleased with their runs. There were 767 finishers.
A note on the winner, he had part of his arm missing and appeared to have one eye either missing or severely damaged. a remarkable performance.
