Wednesday 9th May 2018 saw the 35th annual Silverstone Grand Prix 10k race take place.
This race is Silson AC’s home event which they hosted with the support of Silverstone Circuits Ltd, Soreen, Whittlebury Hall and the lovely pacers from Buckingham and Stowe RC. However, the event would not have been as brilliant as it was without Silson’s club members who organised the event, liaised with sponsors, processed the entries in advance, helped park cars, gave out running numbers, took entries on the night, ran between the Pits and Race Control with completed entry sheets, set up and ran the pit lane, provided and served fab cakes, handed out water, marshalled the course, videoed the finish, made loads of noise for the runners at Maggots Corner, handed out medals, water and malt loaf bars, drove the timing car, allocated jobs to everyone who volunteered and helped tidy up afterwards.
So well done and thank you to everyone involved and well done to all the runners who took part!
The event hosted a magnificent 1657 finishers this year, that is 400 more runners than 2017. The weather was kind on the night and the atmosphere was electric in both the wheelchair and runners races. Silson have received lots of lovely comments about people achieving PBs and new distances and overall how much they enjoyed the event. So well done and thank you to everyone involved and well done to all the runners who took part!
