Sexarathon #2: Phoenix Flyer 5k

After a very successful opening race in Lilleshall the Telford Athletics Club DRE & Co sponsored Sexarathon series was back on a very sunny Wednesday evening in Dawley. Welcome to the 25th running of the Phoenix Flyer 5k road race.



A sold out event saw well over 60 Telford Harrier runners registered to compete in what is always a great race around the centre of Dawley.


Over 400 runners lined up at the start in Dawley high street bathed in 20degree sun, which was certain to be a factor of the race. Just as many supporters lined the route which is always great to see, hearing the cheers from on-lookers really drags you round on race day!


The route starts in Dawley high street and takes runners on a 3 lap circuit to complete the full 5k distance. After leaving the bottom of the high street runners turn left onto Kings Street before another left to hit the slow climb up Captain Webb Drive.


Runners are then guided into Heath Hill before a small hook around Dawley CofE school before entering in to top of the high street again.


Both Dean Aston and Michael Smith, who placed top 20 last race were, amongst a strong Harriers line up looking to secure good times and record some PBs, as well as valuable series points and were amongst the mix yet again.
