Lowther 10K Trail Race

12/10/2014

After a break since August, the 2014 DRC Grand Prix series resumed with 15 travelling to Penrith on Sunday morning to take part in the Lowther trail race...

Unusually, no-one in the club had taken part on this course before but the sunny autumnal conditions and the enthusiastic support of the Rotary club marshals made it an excellent day out.

With a narrow muddy trail at the start and a long downhill towards halfway which caught out many, followed by the resultant steady climb in the latter part of the race adding an extra degree of difficulty, especially as the race was quite a bit longer than the advertised 10k distance.

First back in 9th place was Graeme Cross in 42.27 with Kevin McQueen two places and nine seconds behind. Kevin McCaig in 43.01 had an excellent run on his least favoured terrain with Sandy Shankland pleased with his run in 44.55.

Les Hill warmed up for the forthcoming weekend’s Rotherham race in 46.30 and was three minutes in front of Stephen Mohan. Mike Jardine is returning back to fitness in 52.46 and finished just over a minute in front of Frank Skachill.

Gaining maximum Grand Prix points in the woman's competition was Sue Jeffrey in 54.48 who was fifteen seconds in front of Kerry Walker, with Linda Oates only a minute adrift. This trio would have won the woman's team prize.. had only it been on offer!

Sid Oates and Donald Anson ran much of the way together with Sid in 64.57 finishing two strides ahead. Louise Brown in 68.31 ran a strong steady race as did Gemma Leadbetter in her first club race for many months.
