Runners raise thousands for good cause
Published 11/01/14



JUST over 250 people took part in the Goring, Woodcote and District Lions Club’s 10km race.

Eighty-seven runners signed up on the morning of Sunday’s event, which started and finished at Woodcote village hall.

First to finish was Jake Shelley, of Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers, who crossed the line after 33 minutes and 32 seconds. He was presented with the Samantha Stevens Memorial Cup and a plaque.

Charlie Pearson, who won the race in 2011, was runner-up for the second year running in a time of 35 minutes and 54 seconds. Third was Liam Proudlock, of London Heathside running club, who finished in 37 minutes and 38 seconds.

The first woman to finish was Sheena Keates, of the Runnymede Runners club in Egham, who came home in 42 minutes and 30 seconds. Jack Harlowe, of Reading Athletics Club, won the boys’ race in a time of 44 minutes and 31 seconds.

Prizes also went to Lucy Hartley (second female), Heidi Price (third female), Kevin Burree (first male over 40), Nick Dorey (first male over 50), Gary Cust (first male over 60), Paula Robinson (first female over 40), Liz Jones (first female over 50) and Margaret Moody (first female over 60).

The race, which is in its 30th year, is thought to have raised more than £2,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society. Lions president Alan Lovegrove said: “Generally, it went very well. Obviously the numbers were a bit disappointing but that was partly due to the weather. Quite a few people cancelled at the last minute.

“The race was also supposed to happen next Sunday but the hall wasn’t available so we had to hold it much closer to the Christmas period than usual.

“The weather did at least hold out while the race was taking place and we haven’t had any complaints about the course.”

Goring estate agent Bob Warmingham, who was the main sponsor, started the race and presented the awards.
