Impressive Performances from CoSARC Runners at Stubbington 10K

The event was extremely well organised by Stubbington Green Runners, with very friendly marshals and spectators encouraging the runners the whole way round.
In a strong field the top 305 runners all finished within 10 minutes of each other. Ben Saunby was 1st home for CoSARC in a time of 33:08 and was 4th overall. Charlotte Ingram led CoSARC’s women home in a time of 41:14.
There were impressive results all round, in particular from the following who all reduced their PBs by the stated times: Dave Gervais 1:33, Charlotte Boardman 1:04, Sarah Brewster 10 secs, Ollie Stone 1:20, Nick Lay 30 secs, Andy Makin 25 secs, Chris Simm 48 secs, Charlotte Ingram 1:02, Peter Callanan 12 secs, Matt Bosworth 41 secs, Anna Patrickson 21 secs.
There was a shock at the end of Stubbington 10K that sent reverberations around the athletics world, and attracted the attention of WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency). This time Vasen Moodley was NOT overtaken by any women in their 90s !!!!! Investigations were held up until Vasen could be tracked down, having fled the scene fuelled by a Rocky Road supplied by an accomplice. He was eventually found hiding out in a carvery restaurant, being sheltered by the Oyston Gang.
