June 2023: Gate Gallop

Sunday 25th June saw the 4th event in the Burton and District Summer League, the Gate Gallop organised by Peel Road Runners. It’s an off road, traffic free 10k race mainly along paths with stiles, gates and bridges adding to the fun. A team of eight runners from LRC took part in sweltering conditions.

First runner home for the club was Dave Sanders in 42:33 followed by John Doyle in 44:37, both amazing times considering they’d both taken part in the Fractured Marathon event on Friday . First lady home for the club was Sarah Hayman in 48:00, followed by Emily Careless, Sonia Short, Jane Bradbury, Victoria Sedgley and Charlotte Wesley. Well done to all our runners for competing in such warm conditions.
