More than 50 runners take part in Uckfield Lions 10k event

More than 50 runners took part in an Uckfield Lions 10k event yesterday and helped raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

They started at Uckfield Rugby Club, ran through Buxted Park, passed the hotel, church, and looped around the lake twice before returning to the Rugby Club for the finish.

It took the first runner 38 minutes to get back to the field and head for the finish line.

The results were:

Men – 1 Warwick Hadley (38m 19s), 2 Ross Brocklehurst (41m 20s), 3 Graham Woolley (41m 37s)

Women – 1 Aislinn Darvell (44m 21s), Julia Jones (48m 49s), Leeanne Corvan (51m 01s).

Junior – Henri Bedwell (48m 33s). Thirteen-year-old Henri was the youngest person in the race and took 12th place overall.

The trophies for the fastest man and woman, and medals for all competitors were presented at the finish line by new Lions president John Carvey.

The Lions said they were grateful to all who supported the event, the Uckfield Rugby Club and 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.

They also said thank you to Uckfield Runners for their help in putting on another successful Lions 10k Run.

The next big event to be organised by Uckfield Lions is a car rally on Sunday, September 29.  An entry form is available on the Lions website.

Don’t forget the Lions Bookshop is open in Olives Yard, Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm, for your summer reads.
