Red Army at Corfe Mullen – 11 June 2013

Young guns impress at Corfe Mullen Carnival races.

The red army blast off the start line. Reds, left to right, are Lynn Hutchings, Richard Swindlehurst, Piers Copeland, Callum Kennedy, Ryan Walbridge, Steve Wyatt, Joe Miles, Abbie Hine and Jason Sotheran.

The Corfe Mullen Carnival races celebrated their 10th anniversary in fine style on a glorious evening. Wimborne’s red army was there in record numbers, over the two races – one mile and 5k – there were 54 of us.

The first race of the evening was the mile for those aged 8 to 13 years. Since WAC started to get involved in this race our youngsters have an excellent record. The first time WAC juniors competed was in 2009 – when Sharon Hutchings won the junior race, every year since we have had runners in medal positions. This year was no exception with Tom Bourne picking up a silver medal and Liam Murphy-Parry bronze, while Grace Copeland got a silver medal in a very competitive girls race.

Many of those juniors who have done so well in the mile race between 2009 and 2012 have now graduated to the 5k. Having stepped up to seniors’ race, and the longer distance, they certainly made their presence known. The first four WAC finishers in the 5k race all graduated from our junior ranks. Callum Kennedy the first Wimborne man in the 5k race’s history to win a medal (bronze). Also filling top 10 spots were Jason Sotheran (8th) with team-mate Ryan Walbridge in 9th. One of the most impressive performances of the night came from Piers Copeland (12th), this was his first year in the 5k (he’s won the mile race for the past two years). This quartet were just ahead of a pair of the club’s finest senior road/cross-country racers – Steve Wyatt and Richard Swindlehurst. The youngsters also shone in the ladies’ race, with Abbie Hine maintaining the tradition of recent years of picking up a ladies medal which both Lynn and Sharon Hutchings had initiated. Also having a very fine run for the ladies was Ella Hearne.
