On a warm Wednesday evening, seven Mighty Greens took part in the Exeter 10km Run. Starting on The Quay and following some of the Park-run route along the river and canal footpaths and cycle tracks to the swing bridge and back. This was a two lap traffic free and pancake flat 10km run.
In order of finishing was Greg Ward who arrived in 47:08 giving him the 94th position, Rob Edwards 115th with a time of 48:44. Steve Saunders in 171st position is now looking to beat his time of 52:25 next year. Then came Jo Earlam 205th, 55:48, John Sharples 243rd 58:39. Then Cheryl Boulton, who wanted a sub 1hour 10km time, sprinted for the finish line and achieved her goal 59:43 coming in 253rd place and Christie Ward felt very pleased with her position of 282nd, with a time of 63:52. There were 338 finishers.
Jo was pleased to get inside of the 9 minute mile pace with it being a rather short / fast pace for her.
