Many apologies for the slight delay to the prize giving and the publishing of the results at the finish line immediately after the race. With there being 244 finishers, all finishing within a very short space of time, the finish line got rather busy and therefore quite hectic for our time keepers! We have now identified all of the runners that were missing from the provisional results, except for one male runner who finished in a time of 21:06.
Thank you for supporting our Village 5K race. Once again it was a great race, being very close at the front, with Richard Burgess-Gamble winning in a time of 16:14. Caroline Hoyte was the first woman finisher in the extremely quick time of 18:06, finishing in 10th place overall. This is Caroline's fourth win at the Kings Head Canter, with her amazingly quick 2002 winning time of 17:10 still remaining as the women's course record. The men's course record of 15:20 set way back in 1998 by Geoff Hill remains unchallenged for another year. Geoff, the course record holder, returned to the Kings Head canter 5K this year. He didn't quite manage to match his 1998 time, but he finished in a very respectable time to achieve 53rd place overall. John Lowden, aged 57, won the Over 40 Age Graded prize, finishing in the time of 17:55 (8th place overall) to achieve 86.01%. However, the Kings Head Canter 5K isn't only about the 'speedsters'. To all of you that ran today, well done on finishing and earning yourself a well deserved free drink, courtesy of the 1648 Brewery and the The Kings Head, East Hoathly .
Please support our sponsors, The Kings Head, East Hoathly, and The Jog Shop, Brighton.
We hope you enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you again in 2014.
