PHIL Wicks won today’s 30th staging of the B&Q Eastleigh 10k.

Romsey Advertiser:

The Belgrave Harrier (above) clocked 29 minutes and 34 seconds – one of the quickest times in recent years.

But the course record is still held by Glynn Tromans, who finished in 28 minutes and 38 seconds in winning the 2003 race.

Southend’s Adam Hickey was runner-up today, 29 seconds behind Wicks.

Romsey Advertiser:

The first local runner to finish was Winchester’s Chris Powner (above, 30 mins and 24 seconds) and Southampton’s Alex Wall-Clarke eighth in 31 minutes and 31 seconds.

Winchester’s Alan Murchison was ninth in 31 minutes and 42 seconds, the first male over 40 to finish.

The first woman to finish was Basildon’s Gemma Kersey. She was 76th overall in 34 minutes and 33 seconds - well outside the female course record of 32 minutes and 48 seconds set by Laura Kenney four years ago.

Well done Echo, and Well done All the runners.
Please carry this responsible reporting over into your paper edition too- that is the winners, male AND female, and veteran categories if you can. This is both sports coverage AND recreation that involves the whole community, so it is important to highlight when people do well, local or otherwise. A broader and more consistent approach too, please, when you 'cover' events just outside the area, don't just cherry pick the SO postcodes, your readership is bigger than that, as you try and prove when you 'cover' PO football sides at Wembley or the Great South Run.
