DK runners out in numbers at the Almost8

Posted on Posted in News

Thirty two members from DK Running Club took part in the Almost8 race, hosted by Kidderminster & Stourport Athletics Club, on Sunday 17th October.

The famous blue hoops were in abundance on the start line of this local event, which has become a popular diary staple for the club. The event is ‘almost’ 8km in distance and participants cover running track, cycling track, road, and nature reserve.

For some members this was their first race wearing the hoops, after discovering their love for running on the beginner’s course in the summer.

First male back for the club was Ray Selwood who completed the course in 39:01 and first female back was Becky Withers in 41:05. Jane Campbell was amongst the prize winners on the day, finishing first in her age category in a time of 41:32.

Elsewhere this weekend, Rob Langford took on the Oxford Half Marathon, finishing in a time of 1:56.
