East Peckham 10k 2021

EP10k Team

Bridgit Weekes overcame chronic knee issues to finish first W60 at the East Peckham 10k on 1 August, as four of SAC's more mature runners tackled one of the flatest courses in Kent. The event doubled as the SCVAC championships, providing plenty of age-category competition for the Sevenoaks runners. The previous two runnings of this race were in scorching conditions, but cloud and light rain prevailed so that PBs could have been possible for younger clubmates. As it was, the post-race conversations mainly featured health issues! Nevertheless, Bridgit's WMA score was around 81.5. The SAC results were as follows:
