Race report from LRRL:

Firstly, a huge thank you must go to Birstall RC and all volunteers for putting on last weekend's race. Its a lightning fast course at Swithland, as shown in the ridiculously large number of county standards achieved! 670 runners of 690 finishers achieved a standard. 9 were the highest standard, Rhodium, with 11 Platinum and a whopping 48 Diamond standards to follow. For the first time this year all 27 member clubs were represented in a race.

The outright race win was taken by guest runner Frank Baddick, again following on from his West End 8 win, with special note to be made for his sub-5 minute mile pacing to win in 29:46. The LRRL win was taken by Matt Scarsbrook of Badgers, his third win in a row with 30:21. He was followed home by Tom Mahon of Wreake & Soar Valley in 31:19 and Luke Ingram third in the LRRL with 31:52.


Gemma Steel marked her first LRRL appearance of 2023 with a fine ladies win and 7th outright in 32:22. She was pushed all the way however by guest runner Sonia Samuels of Sale Harriers, who eventually finished in 32:36. Emily Smith made it a Charnwood 1-2 to finish second in 35:28, with Joanna Male of West End Runners placing third in 35:31.
