Sunday, 4 June saw the return of Romsey Road Runner’s popular annual event, the Beer Race. As the name suggests, the runners are rewarded for their efforts on this scenic and undulating 5-mile route round the lanes of Braishfield village with a delicious pint of beer at the end, provided by local brewery Flack Manor.
The very talented bakers of Romsey Road Runners cooked up a mouth-watering array of cakes and biscuits which also went down well. Up and Running kindly provided the spot prizes, and Giovanni Buldrini was on hand to administer post-race massages.
The men’s event was won by Chris Fawcett in a time of 26:52, and the female winner was Erin Williams in a time of 30:52.
The adult race was followed by the children’s fun run where 58 eager competitors took part. Once the competitive elements of the day were completed, the club settled down to enjoy a well-earned BBQ in the sunshine. Thank you to everyone who took part and helped to make the day so enjoyable and happy. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
