Felsted 10k: a hot success

GFDR  were finally able to host the very popular Felsted 10K on 18th July 2021, after the pandemic caused the cancellation of the 2020 edition. Over 300 runners turned up to pound the roads around Felsted, taking in the beautiful countryside in the 30 degree heat.

Whilst the event was slightly different to previous years,  to comply with some Covid-19 restrictions still in place (rolling starts, no congregating at the end), most runners did not seem to mind, and were excited to  be back running an actual event in their local area!

First male back was Scott Cousins from Springfield Striders in an amazing time of 31.57.  First lady back was Nikki Woodyard also from Springfield Striders in 40.24.

GFDR had four of their own runners out on the course: new member Simon Bond came in sixth overall with an impressive time of 35.10. Richard Hynes (38.10), Arron Clark (38.41) and Ben Rayner (49.13) completed the club’s contingent at the race. Full results here.

A wonderful day made possible thanks to the large number of GFDR members who volunteered to make the race a success.
