Relish Running Races were delighted their final event of the series drew another superb field of runners for a fantastic day of racing at Dyrham Park.
The 10km series was topped by the incredible Will Christofi, a day after celebrating his 17th birthday, with a new course record of 36.58. Quickest woman in the 10km was 19-year old Naomi Webber and the 3km winner was Emma Jones at merely 11 years old, h are going to be exciting to watch develop into brilliant senior runners over the next few series. The field was once again a great mix of experienced and novice runners who loved the challenging course shared with the deer, stunning views and lots of support from many families Relishing The Great Outdoors!
Once again the day was topped by the hugely enthusiastic children delighting in matching their parents' achievements with the 300m dash. We have loved this event each race day; knowing the stars of the future are opening their running careers surrounded by such a wonderful setting!
The incredible series spot prize of weekend for six at the National Trust's Clutterbuck Cottage was won by a very lucky Christine Reynolds. We hope she enjoys this amazing prize donated by the National Trust;
It has been a pleasure to be joined this season by everyone who has raced at Dyrham Park. We have been privileged to work with some fantastic colleagues... Cath Pye and all her staff at the National Trust have been a wonderful team who represent the Relish the Great Outdoors theme so well; and Running Home and Cytomax have sponsored each race with fantastic prizes and offers for all runners. We have been supported by a team of brilliant marshalls each race day and couldn't have put on so much fun without them!
For all those who've joined with us this year - we hope you've had as much fun as we have and can't wait to see you again for our soon-to-be-announced Winter and 2012 events. For anyone interested in the new race season... please register on www.relishthegreatoutdoors.com for all the latest news.
