The RUNdown – 8th AUGUST: Hawkshead 10k, Cybi Coastal Marathon, Draycote Water 10k, Hooky 6 & parkrun
HAWKSHEAD 10K & THE CYBI COASTAL MARATHON
Ann Spencer-Dowdeswell travelled north with her son to the Lakes to race the Hawkshead 10k (which was actually 7.2 miles!). The route took in great views of Windermere and the surrounding peaks of the Coniston Hills, the Langdales and most of the Lakeland fells, as well as the infamous, mile long, near vertical, killer climb of the “Coffin Trail”! She completed the race in 196th position in a time of 1:38.51
Meanwhile, over in Anglesey, Darren John took on the Cybi Coastal Marathon, completing this challenging race with minimal training in 5 hours, 24 minutes. The entire route – part of the Welsh/Anglesey Coastal path – passes through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, the famous South Stack lighthouse and of course the summit of Holyhead Mountain!
HOOKY 6 & DRAYCOTE WATER 10K

Amanda was 25th lady overall in a time of 1:02:59, and Caroline was 34th lady in 1:07:02
