Frampton 10km – 04/07/2016

A large group of CLC Striders took part in the Frampton 10k last Monday.  On a fine summer’s evening, the relatively flat and rural course provided some impressive times as the Striders were led home by Will Pearce in an excellent 14th place in a time of 37:20.  He was swiftly followed by Jon Howes in 37:39 finishing second MV40 and 16th overall and Paul Lockyer in 39:52 (34th).  First lady home for the club was the ever-improving Karlien Heyrman with a new personal best of 40:25; Heyrman finished as 5th lady in 42nd place overall. 
Fellow Striders followed in quick succession as Andrew Paterson stormed to a PB in 42:14 (63rd), Paul Northup finished in a solid 42:16 (64th) and Amanda Steer had a great run of 42:19, earning the prize for first LV45 (66th overall).  Amelia Mullins finished in 42:24, her fastest time for 11 years, to claim second LV35 (70th overall).  Heyrman, Steer and Mullins finished as second ladies team.  There were other strong performances from Daniel Farrelly in 44:40 (109th), Gary Smith in 46:24 (147th), Richard Haslam in 46:43 (157th), David Street in 47:40 (170th), Martin Bick in 47:56 (175th), Bradley Coates in 49:18 (208th), Dan Harte in 49:30 (212th), Gordon Bendall in 53:57 (289th), Caroline Barnes in 54:20 (295th), and Helen Howes in 55:49 (325th).  There were 480 finishers.
