Titsey Trail – 1st October 2017
The 9th Titsey Trail 10k race was another sell-out with 425 runners signing up to participate.
The race was considered to be the muddiest of the nine years but this did not appear to deter a field of 328 runners, comprising of 146 female runners and 182 male runners.
Congratulations to Richard Philips of Serpentine RC for coming in first, the second time he has won this race. Richard finished over a minute and a half ahead of second place. The soft going of the course prevented him beating the course record he set in 2015 but he did set a new fastest time in the Male 40-49 years category. The fastest lady was Becky Chopman of South London Harriers.
Well done to everyone who participated and we hope to see you again next year!
