Sheridan Maine raise over £1000 for charity at the Hendy Ford Eastleigh 10K Road Race - March 2016

Early on a misty Sunday morning, an eager team of Sheridan Mainers (from Thames Valley & South Coast regions) faced the bitter cold and a lie-in free Sunday to descend on Fleming Park Leisure Centre in preparation for the Hendy Ford Eastleigh 10K Road Race.

Following weeks of various quantities of training, Basingstoke’s Jodie Mitchell, Charlie Rampton and Phil Rushton (and Phil’s partner, Katrina), Southampton’s Ben Khosravi, Rupert Gask and James Stacey and Bournemouth’s Ami Glass approached the starting line.

Cheered on by running extraordinaire, Gaynor Brindley, who was unfortunately injured (during a previous run) and unable to take part this year (which would have been her 25th year of running the Eastleigh 10k!), and Basingstoke’s Anna Newman, the runners descended onto the streets of Eastleigh and pounded the pavement in aid of a variety of charities, collectively raising over £1000 (so far!).

All the Sheridan Maine team did extremely well and came in at fantastic times, with Rupert leading the way completing the race in just 49 minutes and 44 seconds. Despite the early morning and drizzly weather conditions, the whole team thoroughly enjoyed the event and left the leisure centre with a medal and a feeling of accomplishment; all by 10:30AM.
