The CTL & Velo Runner Predicted Time 5k event last night was a wonderful evening combining physical activity, socialising, making new acquaintances and fun.
Organisers Ken and Su Rushon, from Potteries Marathon Promotions, coordinated this fabulous occasion and were supported by our very own Velo Store resident barman Simon Williams.
A challenging pace was promised and delivered by experienced runners from local running groups; Potters Trotters; Bats Trentham and Stafford. First timers gained valuable experience and friendships whilst predicting their own full race time over the 5k course.
Yonger and newer runners especially seemed to enjoy the race with cyclist Steve Hall winning the predicted time race at 27.66 minutes. Local legend and Triathlon competitor Simon Hodgkinson won the speed race at 18.23 minutes.
Inspirational runner of the night prize went to Liam Hopwell aged 9 who was joined by his Mum Jodie.
The three closest predicted time entrants and Liam all won a pair of New Balance Shoes, presented by Dawn Franks, CTL Instructor and owner of Nutrition Solutions.
Steve Hall chose a local leukaemia charity to receive the £100.00 raised through race entrance fees.
