ANOTHER FANTASTIC ABINGTON 10K

Despite miserable weather on Sunday 6 October, the 15th Abington 10k and Fun Run still saw over 600 competitors brave the drizzle. As in previous years the start and finish line were both located on Granta Park, with the course following a route through Great and Little Abington.

The event raised an amazing £8,500 for Great Abington Primary School. The proceeds will be used to develop the outdoor learning area of the school as well as contributing towards a community pump track.

As well as the money raised for the Abington Primary School, the Abington Pre-School and GAPS out of school club ran its renowned race-day cake stall. The stall raised just over £400 which will be used to update the garden at the Pre-School.

The race committee would like to thank the consortium of generous local sponsors including TWI, BioMed and the Granta Centre who help make this event a success. Not forgetting the 43 local marshal volunteers who stood out in the rain to ensure the runners made it safely around the track.

Results

The 10k women’s winner was Sabrina Crothall who won in 39 minutes, 17 seconds, the men’s winner, Sullivan Smith, finished in 34 minutes and 49 seconds.

The 2k Fun Run was won by Ben Phillips and Cressida Hughes was the first girl over the line.

The fastest times recorded by Granta Park employees were from Andrew Bell and Fliss Tournant. Congratulations to all!
