Wednesday the 20th July 2018 saw the third Durham City 10k take place on a revamped course around Durham City.
The challenging run took participants around the racecourse, passed the Boat Club, Durham City Rugby Club and a ‘mountain’ leading up Providence Row from Freemans Reach to Claypath. A 400m ‘killer’ hill sprint up Saddler Street lead to the finish line in front of the very beautiful Durham Cathedral on Palace Green.
Seven runners from Team MGL Group joined over 2000 runners, some serious, some not so, with Lesley McCourt being our fastest lady finisher with an incredible time of 45 minutes 44 seconds. Adam Forest was once again our male winner at 47 minutes 53 seconds.
An ice cold beer at the finish line completed a great summers evening.
Thanks go to Ian Pearson – Official MGL Team Photographer, Bag Carrier and Enthusiastic Supporter.
Well done to everyone who took part - Team MGL: Geoff Clark, Adam Forrest, Emily Reader, Gillian Reader, Lesley McCourt, Lisa Malone, Helen Pearson
