Booth Summer road race league race 1

Starting from Derby Rugby Club, the race was a mainly flat with 1 short sharp uphill climb over 4.5 miles split in to 2 laps. Long Eaton were competing in this league for the first time and with the distraction of the London Marathon comming up causing a number club members understanderably not to run.But as it was, a fantastic turn out of 27 runners from LERC took the race by storm with Rod Harris running again, taking 2nd place and Sharon Orridge 1st for the Ladies. Long Eatons combined team of 7 men and 3 ladies came away sitting in first place after the first race. The men were 2nd on the day and the Women were 1 place better sitting on top of the other 10 teams in first. Lets hope this continues over the next 4 races in the series.
