James Cotton skims over 'Quicksand 15' - Tony Piersall hangs on

Just one week after his splendid 23rd in a Kent League cross-country outing, James Cotton made light of the sapping sands to win Thanet Road Runners' quirky 15 mile Quicksand Race in 1hr 33 mins 08 seconds, a massive 8 mins 15 secs clear of an overseas rival, Arjan De Gier

Due to the tide, there's a 4 hr limit on this race...

In all, 28 Women and 80 hardy men completed this challenging race, among them Tony Piersall, our principal u-11 coach - in his last big outing before the New York Marathon, Tony crossed the line after 2 hrs 41 mins 08 seconds. The last competitor made it home in 3 hrs 14 mins to beat the incoming tide by a comfortable 45 minutes...!
