Jo and Steven are Club Champions for 2013

17/11/2013

The DRC runners who headed down to the 62nd Brampton to Carlisle 10 mile road race were greeted with perfect conditions for fast times. The race was doubling as the Northern England 10 mile championships and the 2013 DRC club championship...

The fast downhill start and ensuing 90 degree corner takes even the most experienced runners by surprise, but everyone settles into their stride within the first mile out of Brampton.

The route goes along the A689 (General Wade's military road) towards Carlisle until runners are directed away from the main road through the villages of Newby East and Crosby-on-Eden. They then return to the main road to cross over the M6 and enter Carlisle running along the top of Rickerby Park to finish with a fast descent down Stanwix Bank, across the river Eden, and in to the Sands Centre (via another sharp corner/gate).

New club champions Steven Smith and Jo Zakrzewski worked together throughout the race taking turns to push each other on until Steven turned on the gas to finish in style. Alan Baxter came across a horse en route but didn't let this deter him from claiming a few scalps with a strong push in the final stages. 

The men's team of Steven Smith, Alan Baxter and Richard Beck finished in 6th place, but the ladies' team of Jo Zakrzewski, Theresa Lavery and Maureen Dickson trumped them with a 3rd place prize, and first vet team. These 6 runners form the podiums of the DRC 2013 road race championships.

Other results of note were Jo winning the ladies' race and taking 80s off the club's 10 mile record with Maureen taking 2nd LV55 (ahead of the 2nd LV50).

All runners were very grateful to the support and marshalling en route and at the finish from other club members, and it was a great finish to the DRC road season.

15 Steven Smith 56:43

18 Jo Zakrzewski 57:00 (1st L)
