The 2nd running of "The Run" a quick 4 mile race based in Breaston and organised by Erewash running club, was quite a damp affair with the rain Lashing down and bouncing on the road 15 mins before the start, the club organisers must have had a quiet word with the MET office because at the start the rain stooped. The air being quite clear and the route not too taxing although slightly undulating meant that 23 LERCERs along with a "lapsed member" took part with 14 of the 23 setting new best times for 4 miles. The womens team of Sharon Orridge, Cath Benson and Jodie Smith took the honors in the team race with 1st place, the mens team of Andy Colegate, Cameron McNeil, Rich Wilkinson and Mario Rochelli, came 2nd only 1 point behind the 1st place team of Erewash. The person who was most pleased with "The Run" was Sharon Orridge as she defended her title from last year in a quicker time by over a minute (23:20) got a new PB and won £50 for her trouble as she was 1st lady (£25) and broke her own course record(£25). The drinks were on Sharon.
