SRC member Suzi Rockey packed her Mighty Green running kit when she went on holiday to Gran Canaria last week and went outside her 5k comfort zone to run the 10k Maspalomas race in 20 degree heat. 

Suzi said: “The biggest mass start I have ever come across did me a favour as it meant I could not go off at my 5k pace. I tried to sustain this slower pace to achieve even splits, but after a hill I couldn’t resist testing my 5k fitness on the long flat stretch and was on for a 48 min 10k, but regretted this when my legs started to tire and my pace dropped rapidly.” 

Suzi was still very pleased with her result, a cracking 6.29miles in 53mins. 

David Skinner travelled to Padstow to take part in Purple Gecko Events Lobster Lollop 5k running along the Camel trail and received a very cool medal for his efforts.
