Marriott’s Way 10k

On a day of sunshine and showers four members of GYRR competed in the 60+ age groups of the  2016 Marriott’s way 10k.

Carole Spong was on her usual good form, coming 2nd in her age group with a time of 58m 51s. 

Bob Arnell completed his race in 11th position in his age group with an encouraging 67m 51s.

Roger Andrews celebrated a return to competitive running after a five year absence finishing 12th with a commendable time of 68m 57s.

Jim Spong and Chuck Weigand were dogged in their determination to finish and came in together with Jim 14th in a time of 83m 15s and Chuck crossing the line with him in 15th place in a time of 83m 16s.

These sterling efforts were celebrated with a very enjoyable post-race lunch in the local hostelry where they were joined by their two enthusiastic supporters Dianne Crosby and Pat Arnell.
