The BMAF 10k Road Race Championships was incorporated within the Givaudan Ashford 10k on the 14th of October. The race followed a town centre route along closed roads with a start and finish in the magnificent Julie Rose Athletics Stadium. The race was held under perfect weather conditions which led to fast times on a slightly undulating course.
In the Summer edition of Masters Athletics I marketed the race with following bullet points. All became a reality.
With over 120 members entered we had a very healthy field for an open race which also incorporated the SCVAC Championships. The prize presentation was held within a large hall and was a further highlight to the race. Prize presentations are important as it provides an opportunity to publicly celebrate the achievements of our members.
I have to thank Dave Beattie for his assistance before and on the day. He did an excellent job.
We must also thank the race sponsors Givaudan in association with Ashford International Hotel, Ashford AC and specialist race managers Nice Work who promoted a first class event.
