BMAF 10 mile Championships, Sidcup.

08/03/2015

The Sidcup 10 mile road race was chosen to host the 2015 British Masters' 10 Mile Championships and for Dumfries Running Club's Jo Zakrzewski, it was also an opportunity to catch up with one of her GB teammates from last year's 100k...

It was a bright, sunny, warm morning as the 356 runners in the field were set off on the 3+ lap course. The roads are not closed for the event, and so the runners spent most of the time on footpaths in the residential area 10 miles out of Central London. This meant staying very alert as they climbed up and down kerbs and muddy verges, whilst avoiding bollards, dustbins and gas meters.

Jo found the first lap very congested, but soon realised as the field dispersed on the second lap that the other runners had helped shelter her from the wind. She found it inspiring to read the age categories attached to runners' backs as she passed them in the later laps (eg 80 and 90!). Jo moved into the lead in the ladies' race after couple of miles, and though she did feel that she faded somewhat in the later stages, she managed to hang on to this position to finish in 60:43 and so claimed the British Masters 10 Mile title.

As a footnote, even at this early stage of the year, the race earned Jo her third gold plus standard distance of 2015.
