Sunday 8th May saw another staging of the amazing Ealing Eagles 10k. Nearly 600 runners took part, representing over 30 different clubs - not just our local neighbours from West4 and ESM, there were also some Dashers from Datchet, a few Chasers interloping from south of the river, at least a couple of our friends from beautiful hilly Gade Valley and a range of runners from other clubs from as far west as Wales, as far east as Norwich, as far south as Southampton and as far north as York!
Race director Dan had these words of thanks to the club:
I would like to thank everyone on behalf of the 10K committee for their help in organising and staging our annual race. A lot of people helped leading up to the event and on the day with an awesome amount of Eagles proudly displaying their club vests.
We are receiving a steady stream of thank you emails from participants with everyone praising us for the amazing atmosphere that everyone helped to create. The feedback on the marshals and event officials has been particularly pleasing to see.
I would like to thank the teams that have gone before us and set the foundations for the race and everyone on the 2016 10k committee for their effort and it was a pleasure seeing you every month. Shall we order some cooler weather for next year?
Thank you to Dan and the team on behalf of the club - what a great day!
