The Salisbury 10 started and finished opposite the Salisbury fire station this year the change necessitated due to problems with the athletics track. The rest of the course remained the same.
Conditions were favourable being cool with light winds and a touch of precipitation.
In the mens race Rich Waldron triumphed reasonably comfortably and in the battle of the Costleys Max headed Sam. Dave Coak was the fourth Southampton man home in under an hour. Unfortunately a health scare slowed Dan Bakers run but post race he recovered. Mike Hodges having recently joined Southampton incredibly smashed his ten mile PB by over 7 minutes testimony to the effect that wearing a red and white stripe has upon an athlete!
Sarah Kingston also beat her PB by around 40 seconds and being in a great position to watch (behind her!) saw at first hand her impressive increase in speed over the last two to three miles. Tracey Corker and Hannah Polden together with Sarah made up the ladies team finishing second to Winchester so the ladies competition may well go down to the wire.
Team positions in the HRRL will follow when known.
