Two separate 10 Mile races last Sunday, one in Dorking, Surrey, the other in Great Baddow, Essex. Both had their fill of fine weather and sunshine - and the pictures to prove it can be found in the respective galleries here:

For those of you who are not familiar with it, the Dorking 10 is one of our longest covered events, since 2004, whilst this was our first year at the Edmund Carr Great Baddow Races (they have a huge fun run as well as the 10 mile race) and it was a pleasure to be there after being invited earlier in the year.
You can go to their respective websites for race information and results here:
Having covered three longish races in Essex already this year, I have to confess that first and second places at Great Baddow were not the biggest upset since England winning against Mexico tonight. Equally, it was good to see such a strong turn out for DMVAC in their home race in second and third places respectively in the mens results.
Here's a few shots for you below to get a feel for the races themselves - plenty of entries into the fun run, some fetchies were also spotted out and about, and some strong running from the kids, as well as the hungry catepillar, and one person on a space hopper...(but I'll leave you to find that one for yourselves), and some fantastic family support all round from the sidelines.
I hope that you all survived the sudden onset of summer, didn't get sunburnt and can now relax into the week as the temperatures are forcast to return to Autumn levels. Yes that was all the summer you're going to get, lets hope we can remember it by next week !
Until next weeks race reports, which include two triathlons and an international half-ironman from sunny Kent...
