CoSARC runners enjoy success at ‘ferry’ hard Ryde 10 Mile Race

CoSARC (City of Salisbury Athletics and Running Club) made the short hop “overseas” to the Isle of Wight for the Ryde 10 Mile on 5 February.
The race was run on a bright and sunny winter’s day, which helped keep the runners cool on their 10 mile journey.
Harry Smith was first home for CoSARC and finished an impressive 2nd overall from a field of 480 in a time of 0:55:39.
The club’s other finishers were: William Pannell 0:57:09; Harry Pannell 1:01:01; Richard Davidson 1:03:40; James Mills 1:05:07; Craig Weatherburn 1:09:27; Mark Goulding 1:13:40; Edward Cane 1:16:11; Mark Wilde 1:16:45; Katie Clements 1:18:41; Nick Lay 1:18:41; Charlotte Boardman 1:22:29; Andrew Makin 1:24:39; Heather Hitchens 1:28:42; Vicky Pearce 1:39:34; Candus Ward 1:56:25; Helen Carlton 1:56:41.
Taking place on the same day, but in the north of Wiltshire, Royal Wootton Bassett Hounds Running Club pulled out all the stops with their aptly named Lungbuster – a nine mile cross country race on private farmland.
The 177 runners who started were rewarded with magnificent views as they trudged through mud and over lung busting hills.
Finishing times were for CoSARC runners were: Richard Larcombe 01:16:21; Steven Mitchell 01:22:42; Di Mattingly 01:29:58; Mike Mattingly 01:31:41; Vicky Robinson 01:39:33; Linda Robson 01:39:39; Lisa Milner 01:39:45.
