Woolacombe 10K Run Sunday 19th June 2016
Despite the rather wet conditions on Sunday (19th June), a large number of runners turned out for the fourth ‘Woolacombe 10k Beach Run’. The course takes runners along the sands to Puttsborough, then up the hill and back along the track towards Marine Drive. The competitors then run on tracks through the dunes back to the beach and to Puttsborough again. Finally, they return along the sands to Woolacombe. The wet conditions meant that all off-road sections were heavy, however, at the finish, all runners seemed in great spirit. Everyone completing the course was awarded our special ‘I beat the beach at Woolacombe’ medal. First back for the men was a regular competitor, Chris Broome with an excellent time of 41:39. Closely followed by Jamie Tinniswood and Joey Jordan. For the women, first back was Laura Farrar in 44:27 – followed by Rosemary Terrible and Beth Barrington. Full results can be found on our website. The run was organised by the Ilfracombe Compass Rotary Club – and has raised well over £2,000 which will all be given to local good causes.
