Friday 29th March – Caldervale Country 10 Mile Road Race

OAC’s Ian Broadbent reports:

I ran in the Caldervale Country 10 Mile near Garstang in Lancashire on Good Friday.

It’s an extremely undulating 10 mile road race with a stiff climb over Oakenclough.

I finished 78th in 77.56 secs which is a PB by a couple of minutes. There were 187 finishers, it’s a very social occasion and the pie and peas for a pound aren’t to be missed afterwards. There is also a four mile fun run that starts an hour before.

The race was won by Gary Pennington (Preston Harriers) in 55.11 and the first lady fifth position overall was Amanda Crook (Southport Waterloo) in 59.11.

Wednesday 20th-24th March – European Masters Indoor Championships (Esp)

400m victory cerem 2-c-aReport from OAC’s Caroline Marler:

After my recent performances at the British Masters Indoor Championships, the next stop was to compete for Great Britain in the European Masters Indoor Championships in San Sebastian, Spain.

I finished up with two Gold medals and one Bronze medal.

Despite running a poorly paced race, starting too fast and fading badly, I hung on to win the W60 400m in 71.42, beating Ulrike Heltscher from Germany into second place (72.04) and Anna Michelettie from Italy into third place (72.76).

In the W60 800m, GB’s Nancy Hitchmough (Dudley & Stourbridge) won in 2:41.30, W. Egger from Italy was second in 2:47.21 and I came third in 2:51.58. Out of the twelve finalists, four runners from Great Britain came in the top 5!

On the final day of competition all the relays were run. I anchored the W60 4x200m team to a very good win against Italy, Spain and Germany. A British team already held the world record for this age group and we managed to beat it – running about a second faster – 2:10.44.

The next big competition to peak for is the World Veterans Championships in Porto Allegre, Brazil in October this year!

Sunday 17th March – Trimpell 20 Miles

Report from OAC’s Ian Broadbent:

“Did the Trimpell 20 miler in Lancaster today.

It’s a traffic free route that starts with a loop of local cycle/walking trails and then heads out up the Lune Valley to Crook o’Lune and back again.

Very well organised and marshalled with a large majority of participants being club runners.

I also spotted Lisa Maughan from a distance!”

From the results at ukroadraces, the race was won by Tom Charles (Trafford AC) in 1.52.53 and the first lady was Jessica Wilson-Young (Edinburgh) in 2.17.50.

For OAC, Ian Broadbent finished 215th (2.51.22) and Lisa Maughan 313th (3.13.30). There were 386 finishers.
