Essex cross country Hadleigh 10k
15 August 2017 - By Terry Alabaster
On Saturday myself and Gerry Greenwold ran in race 4 of the Essex Cross Country series held in the country park at Hadleigh.
The course had changed from the last time I did it and stayed on sandy/stoney paths and was to say the least challenging. There were a few challenging hills and the last kilometre was up a very strenuous climb.
Our finishing times were:
Terry Alabaster 52.14
Gerry Greenwold 53.26
To put our times into perspective only the first two runners managed to get under 40 minutes.
Not being satisfied with a tough 10k Gerry then on Sunday ran in the Dorney half marathon near Windsor which he finished in
After Saturday that to me seems like an extremely good effort.
