Sotos Fleetwood 10K

24/06/2012

On Sunday June 24th, David Burns and Mark Johnston travelled to Lancashire for the Sotos 10k, a run held in aid of the Emily May fund..

On the day, 266 runners lined up for the race, which was run on a very flat out and back course that included the coastal promenades of Fleetwood and Cleveleys.

Hoping to take full advantage of a strong tail wind on the outward section before the turn, both started at a brisk pace. This tactic seemed to work for David as he pushed on to record a time of 42.17, his fastest 10k for several years, and was pleased to finish in 52nd place.

Mark found the fast start less benificial and although claiming unofficial PBs for all distances up to 4 miles, he found the second section, along the sea wall and by now facing into the strong wind, to be difficult. His time of 45.38 was nevertheless good enough for 81st place.
