Southampton 10k – Southampton – Sun 23 Apr 2017

Congratulations to James Hughes who won the Southampton 10k on Sunday, held in conjunction with the inaugural Southampton Marathon and Half Marathon.

James said “the race felt great on a beautifully sunny day. I was in a pack of three for most of the race and managed a sprint to the line to clinch the win. Tough field, painful but worth it”.

James won in a time of 36:45 – well over a minute outside his personal best but to our knowledge his first win at that distance.

ESM members Tony Hursey and Louise Prince completed the half marathon, Tony in a time of 1:48 and Louise in a time of 1:58. The photo shows Louise (left) with Northala Fields parkrun buddy Lindsay Donoghue.

Thanks to the Southern Daily Echo for the great finish line shot of James.
