The 2017 South Bucks Road Races were held on Sunday 1st October.
Thanks to all who ignored the rather sad weather forecast and made it to Black Park for the now popular 10k and 5k races. The weather held fine and good for fast times. We have not got individual PBs on our data base so cannot mention any who reach that goal.
However PBs were mentioned in conversations at the end. Well done if you did achieve one on today's run.
Results can be found on the side left hand menu column.
Your records will be updated on 'power of 10' so look there for you current standing.
Course record. The course record for the 5k race was taken today by Abbie Jones representing Maidenhead AC. Besides improving the course record by 2 minutes she was second overall in the race. At 15 years of age, she is still a junior and looks as though she has a promising future in front of her.

You hosts for the South Bucks Road Races were members of Black Park parkrun. If you've never tried out a parkrun then you are missing out on the best 'freebie' in town.
Also added to today's races was a fun run set up by friends of the South Bucks Hospice. I'm sure you noticed the ballons that welcomed you to the race. They were a complimentary gesture from the Hospice.
South Bucks Hospice was our nominated charity for this year and after race costs have been taken out a donation will be made to them.
So on behalf of our organising team and the hospice thank you for helping to make the day rewarding in more ways than one'.
