RSE Club Report – Sun and Scenery!

Maspalomas 10km Gran Canaria

This Sunday was race day for Gran Canaria, with 10k, half marathon and marathon races taking over the island. Each race follows a coastal route with a unique finish line in the Maspalomas Dunes – perfect for a sun holiday as RSE member, Rachel Bodey, found out.

Well done to Rachel, who took on the course (as well as an active cycling holiday) only a few weeks after completing her first marathon! Rachel finished in a brilliant time of 44:58!

It was fun to take part in this local 10km whilst in Gran Canaria mostly for cycling. A busy and lively event, plenty of drummers, djs and supporters lined the route which was billed as flat but definitely had more than one significant incline! That did at least allow for a nice fast downhill finish along the seafront :-). Paella for all participants!

Well done, Rachel!

Forest Runner trail 10k

Part of the Forest Runner Trail race, this trail race is located in the heart of the Forest of Dean, at Symonds Yat Rock on the edge of the Iron Age hill fort. The race is undulating, following gravel tracks through the spectacular scenery of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Running for RSE was Anne Gardiner and Anna Field, who completed the course in 1:06:05 and 1:06:08 respectively!

We ran it together and had time to appreciate the lovely scenery.

Anne Gardiner

Well done both of you on a great run!
