Brading 10k

Despite having to compete with a stellar line up over at Seaclose Park for the IOW Festival, a few roadrunners did make is over to Brading for the Ryde Harriers 10k race.

The temperature was scorching as they lined up for the 11am start at Smallbrook Stadium on one of the hottest days of the year so far.

From the Stadium, the runners made their way along the Ashley Road, down Lanes Green, West and Coach onto Beaper Shute, the Brading Road and back to the Stadium.

Harry Rann and Stuart Backhouse tussled for the duration of the 6.2 miles with the youngster just sneaking ahead to finish in a fantastic 5th overall taking the junior men’s top spot to boot. Stuart crossed the line 3 seconds later in 6th taking the top spot in the V45 category. Steve Rumsey was next home in 8th to take the V50 crown and completing the first place men’s team. Richard Harvey crossed the line in 11th place taking 3rd place V45. Ross Eglinton made his club debut to finish 18th with Steve Bennett completing the 3rd place men’s team and taking 2nd place in the V60 category. 

Polly Segar was the First Lady IWRR home taking the top V35 spot. Alison Butcher ran a cracking race to make it home in under 55 minutes and 2nd place V45. Emma Ford smiled her round as she always does to run herself into the 3rd place team and the 3rd V40 spot.
