Race 1 of this seasons Booths League road series took place at Teversal Trails on Tuesday, 10th of April. On a what might reasonably described as wet and murky evening, 35 KADS athletes proudly flew the club colours under our new club flag. The race distance of 4.6 miles was run over well surfaced paths, which despite the incessant rain of the previous few days, held up well for all the 400 plus runners involved.
1st KADS athlete home was Kev Copestake in an excellent 51st place, with Kev Johnson and Steve Haskard knocking on the door of the top 100 finishers.
All remaining KADS athletes put in sterling performances as always, and it was fantastic to see so many runners making their debut for the club, so a very special mention to the following.
Kev Johnson, Rebecca Richardson, Jason Buckley, Katie Newton and Julie Buckley. Well done folks and welcome to the wonderful world of league racing!
Many other runners from other clubs passed comment to myself and several of our members on how well the club supported our fellow teammates, this is, of course, the KADS way, but it is great to hear nonetheless. The finish straight lined with Maroon and Silver, cheering home our very own Andy Haskard was absolutely fantastic!
Round 2 of the series takes place at Ilkeston Stute on the 8th of May, race start 19:30.
