2002 Whitstable 10K Report

11:00 6 May 2002 at Waterfront Club, Whitstable

In remarkable result for an open senior road race, Charlotte Dale of Invicta East Kent beat all other runners in what is believed to be a British record for her age group, finishing in 33:05. It is not known exactly how many other women have beaten all their male counterparts in a road race with this number of finishers (404), although it certainly puts Charlotte in a very small, select band.

In the senior men's race, Andrew Holt (Herts Phoenix AC), who was second overall behind Charlotte, came home in 33:50, with the Deal Triathletes duo of Neil Renault (34:08) and David Chapman-Jones (34:45) taking the prizes behind him. Second and third place in the senior women's race were taken by Catherine Harvey (Medway AC, 41:50) and Mo Ovenden (Deal Tri, 43:06).

The men's veteran's categories were won as follows: M40 Ian Stokes (Invicta EK, 37:02); M45 Simon Elliott (Notts AC, 36:42); M50 Arthur McMaster (Unattached, 36:59); M55 Martyn Rouse (Invicta EK, 36:14); M60 Andrew Smith (Ashford AC, 41:16).

The women's veteran's categories were won as follows: F35 Sharon Hawkins (Maidstone Harriers, 41:08); F40 Christine Chapman (Unattached, 37:54); F45 Elisabeth Batty (Invicta EK, 41:02); F50 Ros Tabor (41:40); F55 June Johnson (Sevenoaks AC, 46:17).

Invicta East Kent took both the men's (Tatsuo Yoshiwara, Tim Sutton and James Rouse), and women's (Dale, Batty and Faye Roberts) team titles.
