Uckfield runners complete Bewl event

SEVEN Uckfield runners successfully completed the Bewl 15 mile event.

A very scenic event covering a route around the Bewl reservoir. The event is mostly off road, and as consequence of the recent rain, was quite muddy in places.

However it was good to see the reservoir full again.

About 2.5 miles is on road from mile 10, the road section is a very hilly part of the route and tough so far into the race. The last mile is also a steep climb as you come away from the reservoir to the finish near Wadhurst. The weather was cool and showery, unlike previous years mud underfoot rather than heat slowed the pace at times. Running for Uckfield Runners was Graham West 2hr 06.30, Dan Reed 2.08.30, Brian King 2.10.13, Will Blanford 2.15.30, Catherine Harker 2.23.18, Fleur Blanford 2.40.25, Helen Browne 2.53.46.
