Jim and Heather Fitzmaurice both became British Masters 30k champions at the North Downs Run on 25 June, with Jim taking M75 gold and Heather W45 gold. They were among ten Sevenoaks AC runners who contested the hilly off-road event of whom Dan Witt was first SAC runner home with Keith Brown close behind.
A couple of photos from Staplehurst 10, writes Grace Manzotti. I was trying to catch all of the team in a photo but there are some people missing.
So Allan Lee was second overall, Jacqui 3rd lady, Sally was 2nd W55 and Lionel 3rd M60. And I got a big PB of well over 1 minute 15. After trying in 2 previous races to go under 50. I did manage this time in 49.08.
I think it is a really well organised race, really pretty in the country lanes and nice start and finish in the village common. I think it is also a PB race
I enjoyed it much more than Larkfield. It was quite hot but there was a bit of a breeze and the sun came out in the second half.
