Gosforth 10K road race - sponsors and participants!
On Tuesday 2nd September robinson+co sponsored the annual Gosforth 10k road race
The glorious weather attracted 215 runners to the starting line this year all keen to beat their previous best.
As well as sponsoring the event we also entered a team of runners.
This year the good weather also brought us a very good race. Alan Bowness the winner of the previous two races with times of 34.14 in 2013 and 34.15 in 2012 clocked a consistent time of 34.16 this year. However, Tom Durcan from Derwent Ac stormed through the finishing line in a time of 33.11 to take the honours, well done Tom.
The robinson+co team did well with Craig Houghton powering through the line in a time of 49.26. Next through was Alan Clark in an improved time of 56.49. Gemma Tomkinson finished next for team robinson+co in a time of 58.14 and selflessly let her husband Mathew pip her at the post in a time of 58.13. Philip Allison our practice manager, in true team spirit, ensured that all team members achieved their goals in crossing the line before he did with a time of 67.17!
Our very own Craig Houghton – first home for team robinson+co.
Our thanks go to the organising committee and all the helpers on the night and we look forward to next year.
