Ickworth House 10K
Sunday 27th April 2014
RichHL

There was a bit of a C&C party out at Ickworth House for the Ickworth 10k Hoohaah on Sunday. The conditions were perfect for a quick 10k but the course had other ideas. After a screaming downhill start for the first couple of kilometres, it levelled out for a bit before a stiff climb around the 4k mark. What followed was a blur of twisting trails through the woodlands and parklands of the Ickworth estate with my personal favourite a wooden bridge ending in a pool of sticky, slippery mud. The sting in the tail was the final climb to the finishing line. It was a cruel, beautiful course, not for the faint-hearted.

David Barber was certainly not faint-hearted. He took the course on and was third in 39:57. Ben Chamberlain and Ian Richardson had solid runs in 18th and 19th overall to be the first three C&C gents over the line in times of 45:04 and 45:17.

Emma Buckland (45:47) was an excellent 4th lady and 23rd overall. Beth Jones and Silvia Chiappa were a little further back in 6th and 7th positions in 47:17 and 48:25 respectively.

C&C picked up two team prizes. David, Ben, Ian, Emma and I were the scorers for the fastest team prize. We also won the prize for the most numerous team. Well done to the C&C massive. It was a treat to see so many C&C vests out getting an airing on such a lovely spring day. The next race in the Hoohaah series is out at Wimpole on 18th May. I am of course hugely biased but I can recommend this race to anyone who wants a great run in beautiful surroundings.
