Decathlon 10K

Reportedly there were over a 1,000 entrants for this FREE event. Yes, free and aided by a fabulous OAC Marshalling crew, whose efforts in the cold non-sheltered Holywood Exchange area was appreciated by Decathlon staff and runner alike…although Elizabeth Leitch would have braved Mount Everest to get to that birthday cake presented to her…happy birthday Liz!

Thanks to Rodney Corrigan for organising and to the OAC crew. Despite no chip-timing, this encouragement seemed to help the following Orangegrove members with their personally recorded times:

Johnny Park 35.05 (3rd place)
Eric Fairfield 39:42   (after XC on Sat!)
David Roberts 43:35 PB (OAC Debut)
Gillian Logan 44:21  
Julie McKimm 46:00
Jacqui Maxwell 48:59  
Sharon Corken 49:48  
Reg Sanlon 50:45
Anna Rankin 51:15 PB
Karen Russell 55:28 PB
Ian Reid PB 1 min PB

Plenty of other members also took part in this Decathlon race which is as flat as you can get but where you can be at the mercy of the wind.
