It was the Ribble Valley 10k that was the highlight of the end of the year period with some very speedy performances across the board from some high class athletes. The race also incorporated the Northern 10k road championships.
The event saw 12 men run under 30 minutes and 9 women go under the 35-minute mark. It was Jess Judd and Marc Scott who secured the titles at this years. After coming second to Beth Potter at last years’ event, Judd proved her worth and was first woman to cross the line in an impressive 32:17, a huge 25 second road personal best (click the link to see Judd’s titles)
Not to be outdone by Judd our very own Tom C. ran a blinding race, storming to a magnificent PB of 32:21 a mere 4 seconds behind Judd. To show the calibre of the athletes at this event Tom’s time got him to 65th place, a time that would win the majority of local races.
Well done Tom a credit to QRC, awesome stuff lad.
