Wingham 10k  -  Wingham Sunday 11 September 2011

Kieran (3rd) beats Chris Holmes (4th) by 25 seconds

   -   Men's 1999 course record by IEK's Dominic OMahoney safe for another year

   -   Women's 1992 course record by IEK's Bonny Appleby also safe for another year

       Tom Kerr (u17) beats his dad Tim Kerr (vet-50) by 4 seconds

Medway Maidstone's Michael Coleman was a comfortable winner of the Men's race in 32mins 43, almost one minute short of the Men's course record of 31mins 54 set by our own Dominic OMahoney in 1999 - Dominic still runs for fun and also runs the shop for runners, The Running Outlet in Canterbury.

Sarah Mooney (Larkfield) led the females in just under 42 minutes, almost exactly 5 minutes short of the 37mins 57 Women's course record, set by our own Bonny Appleby in 1992


No fewer than nine IEK members - 5 male + 4 female - took on this undulating course in blustery conditions and Kieran Reilly (u-20 but unaccountably labelled u-17 on Power-of-10) was 3rd 25 seconds ahead of Senior clubmate Chris Holmes, labelled u-23 on P-of-10

In a private family affair, Tom Kerr (u-17) was 81st in

47mins 43, just 4 seconds ahead of his dad Tim Kerr (vet-50) - Tim was almost 30 seconds faster than his 61st placing last year (when he was the first of only two IEK runners) but also.... he was almost 3 minutes faster than his 88th place in 2009...!!!.

A minute behind the Kerrs Vicky Talbot Rosner was 96th, the 10th female home and the 5th IEK to break 50 minutes for this course. Vicky's previous outing here was in 2008 when she was 4th female, and one of seven (7) IEK Females on the day.

In her debut road 10k, Sue Rogers (vet-45) was 24th female (150th overall) 2 mins ahead of Sue Cooper (vet-50) who clocked 56mins 23.

Long Sunday runs in Blean Wood are paying off for Richard Hudson who broke the 60 mins barrier in 188th and Lea Burnett (68mins 20) was 85th of 94 females on the day

In preparation for their next marathon,
