Sunday 6th October marked the 37th Great Cumbrian Run, a proud moment for KMC as the headline sponsor for such an iconic Cumbrian event. The event was a huge success with over 1,300 runners signed up for the Half Marathon and the brand new event village based on the start and finish line at the Sheepmount Athletics Stadium Carlilse.
GCR 2019 marked the debut of Team KMC, a combination of our Ambassadors and competition winners:
Harry Lancaster, John Bowman, Josh Dowson, Glenn Patterson, Rebecca Glenn, Elizabeth Dodd, Claire Noble, Paul Wilson, Joanne Dollard, Kate Harrison, Matisse Brignall, Sophie Harrison, Neil Glencross, Richard Hinson, Paul Coon, Vanessa Strickland and Richard Anderson.
The whole team did exceptionally well, thank you to all of those who flew the green archer flag for us!
Special mentions to Richard Anderson who finished second, only to Marc Brown, in a time of 1:10.07. An epic time and effort Richard, well done!
Also to Paul Coon who finished 6th in a time of 1:15.03 and has also just been selected to represent England Masters at next month's British & Irish International XC event in Aintree. Closely followed by Harry Lancaster in 1:18.12, a very strong run by an up and coming Cumbrian athlete and influencer.
Thank you all for taking part.
