Carlisle Resolution 10K

20/01/2013

On Sunday 20th January 2013, five members, Danny Queen, Les Hill, Alan Baxter, Kevin Conchar and Mark Johnston, crossed the border to compete in the Carlisle Resolution 10K...

The race followed the same route on quiet country roads as the Carlisle Tri 10K that is held in June each year, starting and finishing at Carlisle race course.

This was the inaugural Resolution 10K and not surprisingly it was a lot cooler than had been experienced by those who had ventured south for any of the June events. All five DRC men were not expecting too much in the way of fast times and were participating mainly to test out recent training and kick start this year’s racing programme. The temperature at the start sat just one degree above freezing, but with only a little wind it didn’t feel too cold other than the section from 4 to 5.5 miles that entailed running into what breeze there was. This section also included a few climbs and resulted in all five DRC guys running at their slowest pace on this part of the course. However all were pleased with their performances.

Alan was first DRC man to finish in a time that was bang on six minute mile pace for 10K with 37:20. Kevin, in his first competitive run since the Jedburgh half marathon due to injury, was not far behind in 37:48. Danny, with arguably the best age related DRC performance, gained his first Gold Standard result of the year with a finishing time of 40:51. Danny was further delighted to discover that this time was good enough to see him win the V50 category. 

Les was three minutes slower than when he tackled this course seven months ago to record 43:39, but he was just delighted to be racing again having not run at all from August to December with a foot injury. Mark's time of 45:06 was just outside his personal target for the day by five seconds, but still a good performance and one that he was pleased with.

All considered this to be an excellent event to take on at this time of year and are likely to return next year if the weather permits.
