Charlbury Street Fair 10K and Fun Run Results, for September 17th 2006

CHARLBURY STREET FAIR 10k and 2.5 mile Fun Run.

September 17th 2006

Sunday was the 18th running of this event, which says something about the commitment of Dean Vincent, the Race organiser and local Pharmacy owner.
This is a race that people come back to time and again – has anybody ran the lot? It would be interesting to hear of your experiences, and how it might have changed?
It would also be good to hear reactions to the run on the Forum generally.
There was strong competition from another 10K at Blenheim but, across the 10K and Fun Run, numbers held up to the usual 100 or so (a notable feature being the larger entry for the Fun Run this year).
The day was beautiful, and warm. Another sign that the world is slowly warming up perhaps, along with the positively huge blackberry crop. As I walk around with the dog I just can’t eat them all!
The beautiful views in Cornbury Park were commented upon, and you have to admit that you have to do this run, if just to be allowed to see them this once a year.
The winning time was slightly adrift of previous years, but still very creditable in the heat, and was also notable the first female home was a Junior, Melissa, from the Running Hawtin team (just look at the Fun Run results). As usual though this is not a race for PBs.
Dean himself trailed in nearer the back, but he was escorting his daughter round, so he says – she definitely cavorted away from him at the end though, strongly enough to win the first Local Female Prize.
Some other notable performances – Geoffrey Griffiths continues to show the benefit of his long Sunday runs, and surely now needs to try a flatter Road 10k to see how fast he can run.
Michael Sibly showed too that there is life in old dogs yet, and Nick Moglia showed his usual impressive speed to clinch the Local winner title.
In the Fun Run Greg Hole showed just how easy this running lark is anyway – getting some moderate racing fuel at the Street Fair the night before, a nice cooked breakfast, and hey presto, you can also show the fleet footed Juniors a thing or two.

In short: downhill dash at start =uphill finish plus other ups and downs Good fresh air and day out from LondonIn full: Well there were roads, grass, long grass, ups and down and more up and down, more roads, field edge footpaths and looping back to Charlbury for more roads and up - no down - to the finish. On the unseasonable hot day the cold water station was most welcome. The fun run starting off together with us made it - fun as my friend was in the fun run (which was taken seriously).Only gripe was the distance markers were in miles ( for a 10K race?) Good clean toilets, easy parking.CheapDate of review: September 17, 2006

In short: A beautiful, if quite hilly, run through the Cotswolds. Deserves even more entrants. Date of review: September 17, 2006

So, everyone, just keep pootling round whatever training regime you do, and turn up and take part, in next year’s spectacular.
