Day 9 - 31 October
Brathay 10in10 2020
A real shocker of a Haloween marathon on Day 9 of the Brathay 10in10.
Today’s marathon was a bit too exciting for Sonja Farish. You couldn’t have planned it….Sonja’s 99th marathon, Haloween and falling trees! At about 10 miles (near Lakeside) Sonja heard a loud, explosive crack so pushed on to get out of danger. A large oak tree fell and its branches brushed her back! Diane, Gary and Becky had to scramble around the tree debris to rejoin the course.
There was rain again through the morning, but the main problem was wind gusting to force 6. All 11 runners pushed on in challenging conditions to finish their 9th marathon in consecutive days. Just one more to go!
Darren Jenness continued his fantastic form to finish in 3:28:39 with Rachel Masser close behind in 3:39:03.
Excitement is now building ahead of tomorrow’s final marathon!
