This is a scenic race with a great atmosphere, although a couple of hills and a last mile along the beach make it quite a challenge. This year having to hurdle the wooden groynes on the beach added to the fun but all in all it was never going to be a PB course!
Mike Kilmartin was first finisher for Sale and 4th overall in an excellent time of 35.17. Next was Nicolas Whittle in another excellent time of 36.29 in 7th place. New member Robert Dunn had run Liverpool Marathon only 6 days before but still had a great run with 38.47 in 23rd place. Jerry Smith was pleased with his time of 43.09 on that course and Jenny Miles also had a good run (1:00:21).
There was also a 3k race. Zara Thompson won the u16 event and £75 and her sister Millie was 8th in the U14 race. Well done also to Benji Lovell who also ran well in the U14 boys race.
Beautiful sunshine meant that it was hot work but made post race recovery on the beach particularly enjoyable!
