They think it’s Bolsover – it is now!

Bolsover 10k

Probably the last major racing weekend of the year and so, to borrow from a recent headline – They think it’s Bolsover - it is now!

On a freezing morning with an icy wind and even icier course in places, it really was a Beast of a Bolsover 10K!

Our 40-odd strong CRR contingent of Monster Raving Lunatics were doing their bit to put the red back into Bolsover, although Jo and Nicky standing out on the course were certainly looking true blue by the end of the race!

There is also still a re-count going on re a couple of our finishers who have not yet appeared in the official results.

First past the post for CRR was Philip Morris in 6th place overall with a 35:37. John Sanderson followed him in 10th with a 36:19  and Jordan Street finished 14th overall with his 37:01.
