Epsom and Ewell Harriers sang “God Save The King” and then won some races on Ashtead Common. Sunday 25th September. Lauren Johnson triumphing in the 10K fun run and her son William in the 2K. A week later than originally planned, due to the passing of Her Majesty, the 17th Ashtead 10k and 2k fun run took place on Ashtead Common. Right after singing the Club’s first ever rendition of “God save the King” the 2k race was off. A tight sprint finish led to William Johnson taking pole position, putting the pressure on his mum in the 10k. Lauren didn’t disappoint, coming in first for the ladies in a time of 43:40, and securing first place for the Epsom & Ewell Harriers. That wasn’t the only good news for the local Harriers, snatching 2nd and 3rd place too, with Sophie Lomas coming in 2nd at 44:18 and Sophie Glencross 3rd at 44:54.
