Great effort from all runners though.
CASTLE COMBE ‘CHILLY’ 10K
On Sunday 17th February the Castle Combe Chilly 10k took place. This was a 3 lap event around the flat running surface on the famous Castle Combe race circuit in Wiltshire.
Running as a 65 minute pacer for the event was Kevin Joynes-Creed who completed the race in a very accurate 64:42.
Mentioned In Dispatches
This was a very easy decision for me to make this week and it will come as no big surprise that both Sharon Smith and Kate Potter are mentioned in dispatches. They both took part in the Gloucestershire AAA Cross Country Championship which consisted of 4 events. Great racing from both ladies throughout the races resulted in Sharon achieving Gold Medal place in the LV65 category whilst Kate Potter achieved Gold Medal place in the LV70 category.
It is fantastic for RSE to have 2 gold medal winners in a County event series yet again. Well done to you both
