Uttoxeter Festival of Running, Sunday 05 May 2019

The medical teams had an easier day than last year as conditions at Uttoxeter this time around were ideal for running in the Half Marathon, 10km and junior events.

The Half Marathon, starting and finishing at Uttoxeter Racecourse, made up the second race in the Burton and District Summer League. Ben Evans set the lead pace early on but faded in the later stages of the race to finish 4th with 1:21:09 and win the Men’s 40-44 category.

In the 2km Junior Race, Charlotte Evans crossed the line with a time of 10:36.
