Dorchester Lions 10k: Chris storms into Top 10, Les wins 70s age group for third time

Les winning Dorchester 10k age group (06-05-2018)Chris and Les were waving Bridport Runners’ colours last Sunday, when they competed fiercely in the Dorchester Lions 10k. Chris stormed into the Top 10 and finished 9th out of 263 runners in a time of 45:58 min. Les repeated his victories from the 2015 and 2016 races in Dorchester and, once more, won his age group (over 70s) in 1:09:15; see all results here. “I came third in my age group, so was pretty pleased”, commented Chris after the event. “It’s a nice race but pretty hilly, going up and around Maiden Castle. It might be a good one to add to the Bridport Runners’ championship next year.” Despite having some issues this time around, Les was also pleased: “This time I had opposition, as there were four runners in my age group! Unfortunately, I had an injury to contend with, it was very hot, and the new route went over the top of Maiden Castle.” Nevertheless, quite an achievement from both runners. Well done, Chris and Les!
