Starting the 10k run at Aintree in brilliant sunshine

A record number of runners almost 1300 turned out for the Matalan Merseyside 10k on Sunday morning. My job was to sound the hooter to start the race and to hand out the cups and cheques to the various winners.

It was good to meet so many local runners including this gentleman who was from Litherland who attended Litherland High School

Dejene Gezimu from Liverpool Harriers in an impressive time of 31 minutes and 26 seconds and first home in the women's race was Catherine Howard of Knowsley Harriers who crossed the finish line in 36 minutes and 36 seconds, followed by Kirsty Longley of Liverpool Pembroke and Sefton Harriers who finished in 37 minutes'

Kirsty  had to get off early to take her young daughter to a birthday party so I gave her her prize before the official presentations. There were lost of different categories including different veterans categories up to 70+ as well as team prizes.
