Centurion Grand Prix- 1 March 2015

Amanda Dawson (Malvern Tri Club) and I travelled to North Solihull for the Centurion Grand Prix 5 mile race on a flat and fast course organised by the Centurion Running Club.  This is the 5th race in a series of 6 which starts about 5 minutes walk from the race HQ at John Henry Newman Catholic College.  The course was one small lap followed by 2 large laps on firm tracks to make up the 5 miles. Although it was a dry and fairly mild day, the race was made more challenging by the blustery wind that runners faced on every lap.

There were 94 participants and I finished in 40:33 and Amanda in 42:34. IMG_julie and amanda
