Following on from Ben’s awesome feat, Sunday saw a race closer to home. The Bluebell Trail, hosted by Stainland Lions RC, was run by several of our runners and supported by many more.
This race is a tasty 10 miler which includes a run up the notorious Trooper Lane and finishes with a river crossing.
The race was won by Stainland’s own Lion, Ben Mounsey in an blistering 61:10.
We had a few impressive results of our own too:
Tom Collinge romped home in 70:21 and snatched 5th place.
Peter May powered round in 83:16 and made 51st place.
Peter Gibbons put in the effort for 90:54 and made the top 100 with 98th.
Anna Smith crossed the line as the first QRC female in 95:49 and 140th
Stacey Cleal was hot on Anna’s tail with 96:20 and 143rd.
Graham Jowett made it round in 100:20 and bagged 182nd.
Andy Smith brought up the rear in 115:19 and smashing his two hour target. Andy finished 288th out of a field of 433, two of which didn’t finish.
A massive well done to all who ran, supported, took photos and, like me, stayed in bed.
