Man On The Run


Man On The Run

After a slightly damp start to the morning the sun came out as 11 male runners from Coastal Striders came together at Hampton Pier in Herne Bay. The event was Man on the Run, a charity 5k run along the promenade between Herne Bay and Long Rock. In it’s 13th year, Man on the Run is the male version of Race for Life and aims to raise awareness and funds for Cancer Research UK.

A little after 11am a throng of men and boys started the race. There was a slight cooling headwind and with a completely flat route, conditions were perfect for a good time for our boys. Almost immediately Deano “Van Beano” Evans took the lead and managed to maintain this, bringing home a fantastic win! A blistering time of 18 mins 31 secs meant Deano secured another personal best under his belt. Massive congratulations Deano! Rob Gray was second Coastie passed the line with a time of bang on 20 mins. Following closely behind was Simon Ballard with a time of 20 mins 25 secs. Both of whom came in the top 10 finishers of the race. A few of our runners got Personal Bests today. Well done to all of you and to everyone that took part. It was a lovely morning.

Once more it was nice to see some of our friends from Herne Bay. Thank you to all our supporters that came along and to the event organisers.
