Lorrain and Emma Dawson travelled up to Birmingham for the 10k, part of the Great run series. This popular race attracted 6662 competitors including an elite field. 

Being part of the ‘Great Run’ series of races this event was very well organised and there was a good atmosphere before, during and after the race.  Both ladies ran good times and although no personal bests were recorded they were both pleased with their performance. 

Emma finished in 50.15 and was 73rd in her age group, whilst Lorrain achieved an amazing 3rd in her age category with a very respectable time of 51.51.  Impressive work ladies.
