Last week saw CoSARC athletes competing in the Frome 5k, 10k and half marathon events and some great results in the 10k event with Aaron Wilson and Peter Callanan achieving 1st place positions for their age categories and Michael Beckett was 1st overall in the 5k event. It was described as a well organised event on a really hot day with some hills thrown in and loads of local supporters cooling off runners with hoses and water pistols. Peter did 3 races in a week with Frome being the third race as part of the Wiltshire road league. Castle Combe 10k and Westbury 5k also saw athletes competing.
A couple of trail events saw fantastic results with James Mills taking part in the White Star Cider Frolic covering over 63 miles and 7 laps of the course in 12 hours, which secured him 1st place male position and 2nd place overall. Chris Maple tackled a 6 hour lapped event coming 6th place overall and 1st to complete the marathon distance.
On the track Mike Applegate came 5th place in the 100m and 3rd place in the 200m at the Setafa Pro Open in Winchester.
