The Skylarks 3K Race July 26th 2017

A message from our Chair, Nikki Gibson

I hear that Wednesday night's Skylarks 3K Race at the Park, ran very smoothly. (No pun intended). There were almost 70 entries aged from 6 years to quite a bit older! The race was won by Crispin in less than 10 minutes. The first boy was 15 year old Jamie who completed the race in just over 12 minutes and the first girl - and first female - was 12 year old Rebecca in 14 minutes. You can view a newspaper cutting on this achievement here.

As well as the more serious runners, others used the race to challenge themselves or to take a power walk round a beautiful park and the spectators were still cheering as the last person crossed the finish line 30 minutes after the start of the race. Refreshments and prizes were provided by the Friends of the Wick Country Park. We are very grateful to Pitsea Running Club, who organise this twice yearly event, and we are very appreciative of the generous donation they give after each race.


A full report of this event is available in issue number 54 (August 2017) of our Skylarks Newsletter. Here on this page, we have presented a 'Photo Story' of the evening.

Full results: here.

As always, the Pitsea Running Club organised the event brilliantly. Well, apart from the grey leaden skies, that is! The field is already well spread out, within a minute of the starting hooter FoWCP Picture FoWCP Picture
