“On a cold and wet morning 10 RSCAC athletes ran in the Ashby 20 mile race, a traditional London Marathon preparation event. Starting off at a controlled pace Ollie Harradence let a small group of runners take the initial lead, but soon pulled them back and by half way was leading the race by himself. He ran out eventual winner in a time of 1 hour 54 mins. The club also won the team event with Ollie being joined by Russell Simpson (2h 03) and Steve Marklew (2h 05).
All RSCAC runners ran well on a testing course in difficult conditions with many running personal bests. This augurs well for their participation in the London Marathon in April, where 14 club members will be competing.”
