When September 14, 2008
First Man Nick
First Woman Tina
Nearly 400 runners turned out for this year’s Eridge Park 10-mile race in Tunbridge Wells on September 14 – more
than double the previous year.
its 10th anniversary, the race boasted its
usual healthy quota of mud and sludge, as
well as some less mucky woodland trails.
Participants enjoyed a picturesque off-road route, which took in the Eridge Estate Deer
Park, an ancient Saxon Fort and the local
fishing mecca of Furnace Pond, all of which
was very impressive; but it included enough stretches of narrow, steep and deeply rutted track to keep runners’ minds focused on the
job in hand.
Last year’s winners repeated
their success this time around with Nick
Barrable first man in 1:02:05 and Tina
Oldershaw first woman in 1:11:43.
