Uckfield Lions 10K Run
At 10am on a hot sunny Sunday morning 43 runners set off from the Uckfield Rugby Club for the annual Uckfield Lions and Uckfield Runners 10K Run.
The course took a route through Buxted Park passing the hotel, church and looping round the lake twice before returning to the Rugby Club for the finish. After just over 38 minutes the first runner was back on the Rugby Club field heading for the finish line.
The results for the Men and Women were:
Mens 1st Place – Daniel Leng (38m 41s)
Mens 2nd Place – Gareth Robb (41m 47s)
Mens 3rd Place – Kevin Perez (43m 55s)
Womens 1st Place – Katie Morgan (43m 30s)
Womens 2nd Place – Charlotte Richardson (45m 27s)
Womens 3rd Place – April Caufield (46m 1s)
The trophies for the fastest Man and Women and medals for all competitors were presented at the finish line by the new Lions President, Keith Mates.
This year the Men’s winner is from Northumberland and the Women’s 3rd place is from Halifax. A truly national field!
The Uckfield Lions would like to thank everyone for coming and supporting the event, the Uckfield Rugby Club & Buxted Park for allowing the run to take place, the marshals, helpers and the St John Ambulance team for keeping everyone running in the right direction and looked after at the end and the Uckfield Runners for their help and support in putting on another successful Lions 10K Run.
