The sun shone on the 500 participants at the Running4Women Windsor 10K yesterday (Saturday 27 September) where the big winners were the event's official charity the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. More than half the field were raising funds for Roy Castle.
It was a memorable day too for Reading AC pair Julia and Alanna Rayfield who were the fastest team in the Generation Game by achieving the lowest aggregate time as mother and daughter. Julie Rayfield finished in overall fifth position in a time of 45:37 with daughter Alanna finishing in overall 17th place in 50:03.
Another local club Reading Road Runners dominated at the head of the field with Ellie Gosling prominent though out on the undulating course before breaking the tape on 41:14, 13 second ahead of club mate Sarah Urwin-Mann.
Joanne Tranter at Running4Women said: “We would like to thank all the runners who took part, as well as all the spectators, supporters, and of course our volunteers and marshals. We have received some great feedback, with everyone loving the beautiful surroundings and the iconic finish on The Long Walk with an amazing view of Windsor Castle. There was a great atmosphere in the race village, and lots of runners celebrated their achievements with picnics in the park after the race.”
