BUPA Great Womans 10K Glasgow

12/05/2013

15 DRC ladies travelled up to Glasgow to join a field of 5,895 runners (including Sonia O'Sullivan and the 5 months pregnant Jo Pavey) to run the Bupa Great Women's 10k. Here is how they got on.....

As they left Dumfries, the ladies were hopeful it would stay dry, even though it was slightly on the chilly side. However, as soon as they stepped off the mini bus and made their way to the start line, the traditional rain started. Luckily Maggie Gray had travelled up to support the ladies and held everyone's bags so that they could keep warm until the gun went off. Despite the weather, there was an abundance of Personal Bests and improvements from last year's race. The crowd support was superb and all the Scottish pipers and samba drumming bands out on course were a great incentive. Everyone agreed it was a fun day out and would love to run the race again. This is what they all have to say:

Sarah Queen : 32nd, 41:27 "Another great day out at the Glasgow 10k - well organised and brilliant atmosphere!"

Sue Jeffrey : 221st, 47:59  "My 3rd Glasgow woman's 10k, this year my best by far. C**p weather as usual, but a pb and another great outing with DRC. Bring on Holywood!"

Lindsey Tait : 350th, 49:28

Jo Needham : 552nd, 51:26  "I really enjoyed the race despite the weather. I paced myself well and came away confident and feeling fresh. Great atmosphere and camaraderie."

Val Coltart : 999th, 54:25  "Gained a PB, well pleased - great fun!"

Fiona Jardine : 1007th, 54:26  "Gained a pb, enjoyed the race and the good company"

Mandy Goldie : 1046th, 54:35  "Well chuffed at my 1st 10k event - thoroughly enjoyed it"

Louise Brown : 1402nd, 56:16 "Really pleased to see an improvement on last year's time"
