CRAWLEY A.I.M. TRACK 12 HOUR RACE & TRACK MARATHON
10 April 2010
Track 12 Hour
Eighteen athletes, including five females were set off at 7am by Race Director Pam Storey, in perfect conditions for distance running, at the K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley.
These would be joined 3 hours later by twenty four males running a Track Marathon.
George Dayantis, set off at a fast pace, which initially seemed a little too fast, but he never relinquished the lead on route to a clear victory and broke the course record by some eight miles with 88.15 miles (141.87km).
Richard Quennell a winner at last years London Tooting Bec 24 hour race, was runner up with 83.58 miles(134.51km). He will shortly be off to the World 24 Hour Championships in Brive France, to make his debut in a GBR vest.
First woman was Angie Sadler with 72.03 miles (115.92km), who had no real competition after Sharon Gayter pulled out after 5 hours.
