Hi everyone,

Yesterday morning on the Chevin saw a host of new faces, some great finish line battles and plans for a recipe book.

First of all let me thank our great marshals. Our Tail Runners were Hilary Wharam and Violet Gill and our marshals were David Ellis, Jacqueline Ellis, John Parkinson, Les Thompson, Michelle Smith, Suzanne Wallwork and Tom Gatehouse

Our guest baker was Jacqueline Ellis and we all had a chance to have a taste of her delicious “munch” and it was so good everybody came back for seconds! I had my hand in her box three times but it was my birthday! People were asking for the recipe so we are thinking of putting together a pdf of the different treats we’ve had at the end of the funnel.

Thanks to all of you; we can’t do it without you!

First over the line today was Joel Giddings who held off Ian Sanderson by finishing in 19:26 to Ian’s 19:30. An even closer battle took place between third place James Tarran with 19:59 whose sprint finish proved just too quick for Paul Tranter in 20:01.

For the women Madeleine Watson finished a strong first in 24:56 with Sara Elliot in 25:25 and Emma Drake third in 25:50. Great running everyone!

Three category records fell today; first went to David Womersley who was chasing down a sub 22 and finished in an agonisingly close 22:02 ( I think sub 22 is on the cards soon though). Second went to seven years old Max Overend who took his record with 28:46 and last one was taken by Christine Robinson.

The atmosphere yesterday was just great and was a lovely start to my birthday (that’s why the results are a day late this week)

I hope everyone has a cracking week and Michelle and I look forward to seeing you all again next Sunday.

All the best and good running

Paul Shack
