Read race organiser Paul Shack’s report here.
What, on waking, looked to be a colder day than we’ve been used to at Run Sunday turned out to treat our 30 runners to warm sunshine which appeared just before the participants did and departed just as we were packing up!
Initially thank you to our great marshals who this week were Anna Murtough, Michelle Smith (also baker of traditional and gluten free biscuits this week), Tom Gatehouse and Tracey Cratchley with Penny who kept our runners on the right track. Thanks to all of you-we can’t do it without your help.
This week saw 4 adult and two category records fall: the first went to Paul Tiffany who crossed the line at the head of the field in 17:31 followed half a minute later by Chris Lyons who with Indy finished in 18:06. The second record went to regular podium finisher Jonathan Forey who took third for the men with 19:06.
First for the women today saw newcomer Maya Hird take the FJ16 category record in 24:22 with Madeleine Watson and Lynn Donohue coming second and third in 25:19 and 25:41.
The other records that were broken on our relatively young new course went to Jack and Kathleen Robertshaw and also to Nathan Forey who improved on his own best by some margin.
In the dog stakes today it went as follows
1st/ Indy with Chris Lyons
2nd/ Georgie with Suzanne Hague
3rd/ Shadow with Nicola Short
Dog Marshal was Penny with Tracey Cratchley.
I hope you all have a cracking week and thank you for supporting.
All the best and good running,
