5 Istead members managed one final event before Lockdown 2 – the Beckley 10k which incorporated the SCVAC (Southern Counties Vets) 10K championships for 2020
On a testing course (one veteran of over 30 years’ of running described it as the hilliest 10k he’d ever run!) with wet and windy conditions, times were a little slower than the runners might have hoped for, but nevertheless some impressive results were recorded.
5th – Mark Champion 40:05 (2nd V50)
30th – David Sancto 43:51 (2nd V55)
52nd – Lynne Champion 45:31 (5th lady and 1st V50)
104th – Trevor Edgley 51:18 (3rd V70)
127th – Deborah McCarthy (running her first event as a a member of Istead & Ifield) 53:22 (25th lady and 2nd V50)
