Richard Burton 10k

Monday 4 November 2019

Yesterday the Richard Burton 10k took place in Cwmavon. The race was won by Jon Hopkins Swansea in 30.36. There was a close battle for the next 3 finishers, with Cardiff's James Hunt 2nd 31.45, Tom Marshall 3rd 31.52, and Matthew Ewards 4th 32.27. If their was a team race Cardiff's 3 in first 4 places secured team win. Good to see Tom Marshall getting back towards race fitness.  Cardiff's Lucy Marland was the first lady in race to finish in 36.43.

Comments made by the winner, said it was a tough course, not helped by the weekend bad weather. Noted that all runners above were over 1 minute down on their best times for 10k.

Apologies, missing Cardiff's Jake Smith excellant 10mile race performance 47.41 4th place, in a class field at the Simplyhealth Great South Run, held on 20th October.
