Success at Essex 10K Champs

Colchester Harriers athletes were in top form when competing at the Essex 10K held at the Braintree track on Friday evening. A star run once again came from the in-form young Lizzie Wellsted who finished strongly with a class time of 34.31 to take Gold Medal in the U20 section, the evergreen Colin Ridley dug deep to finish 1st in his Over 60’s section with an excellent time of 36m 58s; Lydia Callan running her third race in seven days maintained a consistent pace to finish her race 1st in the senior Lady section 38m17s to win gold, the hard working Laura Shewbridge gave 100% to win gold in the ladies 40’s section with a time of 42m.18 ; Jason Gunn rose to the occasion with a determined run to win Silver in the over 40 section making it a excellent evening for the vastly improved track running section of the Club.
