Day 9 - 20 May
Brathay 10in10 2023
Day 9.....it's getting close! Tomorrow the 2023 Brathay 10in10 team will be joined by 700 runners in the ASICS Windermere Marathon. Marathon fever is building at Brathay....and Malcolm Collins has just one Marathon left to complete 10 x Brathay 10in10s!!
Another warm day for running, making for hard work on the hills, but with stunning views.
Early in the day Neil Jones had to retire from the event due an injury that made it impossible to run. The whole team are full of admiration for what Neil's achieved on this relentless Windermere Marathon course. He's run 215 miles over 9 days, most of them while battling through the pain of his injury.
Brathay appreciates everything Neil has done to raise funds to support disadvantaged children and young people. You can donate here to acknowledge Neil's huge contribution to this year's Brathay 10in10:
Paul Davies and Jon Drake crossed the line together, but with Jon clocking his first win of the event due to the phased start. They finished in - Jon: 3.52.15 and Paul: 3.52.45.
Lee Wilkinson and Alfie Thorpe also crossed the line together (a sociable day on the course!) in - Alfie: 3.55.50 and Lee: 3.56.37.
Tasmin Sharley continued her 1st female winning streak with another impressive, consistent run - finishing in 4.03.35.
Excitement is now building ahead of tomorrow’s final marathon! The Brathay 10in10 athletes will start from Brathay at 9.30am - 1 hour ahead of the ASICS Windermere Marathon.
