Trowbridge “Fairy Tale” 5K – 2018

Congratulations to Simon Gilbert of Devizes Running Club and Julia Maddocks of Chippenham Harriers for being the leading runners home in the Trowbridge “Fairy Tale” 5K

One hundred and twenty runners lined up in the sunshine for the Trowbridge 5K, the run which is now in its seventh year and takes the runners around the Hilperton and Paxcroft areas of the town before finishing back in the Town Park. This year the theme was “Fairy Tales” and many of the runners got into the spirit adopting fancy dress.

From the start the pace was set by Simon Gilbert of Devizes Running Club followed closely by Niall Thorne and Daniel Piper both of Avon Valley Runners before coming home in a time of sixteen minutes and forty eight seconds.

For the Ladies, Julia Maddocks of Chippenham Harriers led home from Lotte Brown of Avon Valley Runners and Helen Gibbs of Calne Running Club.

Avon Valley Runners cleaned up on the age group awards with Dan Wood (MJUN), Gary Day (MV40), Mark Harris (MV50), Louise Wood (FJUN), Jo Farion (FV40), Jennifer O’Connor (FV50) claiming the awards.

Holly James of Swindon’s Slinn Allstars claimed the prize for best fancy dress opting to run as Snow White.
