BodyFit 5K Race: Wednesday 13th July 2011, 7.00pm

A big thank you for competing in the BodyFit 'Eaglesfield Paddle' 5K Race. It was a fantastic evening this year with a great turnout for the new venue and course. Congratulations to the new course record holders:

John Fletcher: 16.11 minutes

Philippa Wakefield: 19:28 minutes

Congratulations also to the BodyFit beginners and to Elbra's beginners, over 20 new runners who finished their first ever 5K. The first of many I hope. The feedback has been good both about the new venue and route... no killer hill at the finish, just more of a steady incline! From my point of view, Paddle School was a lot easier and Rod Coy and his team made our life very easy.

I do have an apology to make... I got home to find that I still had several kilos of biscuits. I'd put them in the shade, under the table where the water station was but forgot to tell the marshals that I'd done that. As a consequence, you didn't get any biscuits. Very sorry about that and no, I haven't eaten them all, in fact you will get the biscuits, all you have to do is run the Ellenborough 10K on Weds 3rd August as I've given them to Paul Wilson, the Elbra 10K organiser.

Many thanks as ever, to all the marshals, helpers and time keepers who all gave their time and energy so that you could all compete in the race. Please make sure that you thank them when you next race. Many of the helpers gave over 3 hours of their time, some an awful lot more.

Temple Sports

Our main prizes were provided by Temple Sports of Cockermouth. Pam and her team supplied tee-shirts, kit bags and running socks, thank you. Please visit them and show your support next time you need some sports kit.

Thank you also to CFR for use of their stopwatch and Paul Wilson of Ellenborough Athletics Club for use of their signs.

Temple Sports

Border Construction provided the cones for the finish, thank you to Dave Hayton for those and last but not least, thank you to Steve Harwood and Keswick AC for use of their water carriers.

Pete Bland

Race numbers were provided by Pete Bland Sports. A note on race numbers - please do not fold your number in anyway. The numbers need to be seen clearly for the time keepers and the sponsors name is also on them, so please respect that. Some race organisers may choose to disqualify competitors who do not wear their race number properly.

Also, a number of people were wearing ipods/phones or similar. Please do not use them in races, again you may be disqualified. This is a point of safety... runners need to be able to hear traffic and instructions from marshals.

Race Photos were taken by Chris Freer of www.freerimages.co.uk (01900 827243). Click on "Clients Area" in the bottom left hand corner and then click on "Events". You will see the BodyFit 5K album. 50p from each image sold will go to Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team.
