Monday the 13th of May did not presage the beginning of fine English Summer as the 345 competitors for Dursley Running Club’s annual Berkeley 10K Road Race gathered. Heavy grey clouds scudded across the sky along and a brisk North Westerly wind briefly faded before rising again just as the race started and it continued to gust throughout the evening.
An excellently organised Berkeley 10K Road Race was greeted enthusiastically by around 300 entrants, thunder and showers abated in time for the start and running conditions were ideal apart from a brisk westerly wind. Garry Hughes had already created a gap at the front by the first quarter of a mile and extended his lead to a minute by mile three finishing over two minutes ahead of Robert Hayes in 33:10.
