The first truly frosty morning saw a beautiful sunrise and, I daresay, a few of the 27 runners scraping ice of their windscreens this morning before they arrived at a chilly, but glorious, Chevin for Run Sunday.
Thanks first to our marshals who were Andy Brown (with Hannah and Emmy),David Ellis, Janice Slater (with Dexter), Michelle Smith and Pam Byrom. Petra Bijsterveld was our tail runner and Jackie Ellis presented her delicious Munch to us again. Thank you all for donning the thermals!
First home today finishing our muddy, waterlogged course in a time of 20:25 was Simon Edgar adding to his tally of wins. Next in a not too shabby 20:37 was stalwart supporter Tom Potter and regular Andrew Price chased them both in and finished in 21:20.
First lady today taking 30 seconds off her best time was Emma Payne was crossed the line at 27:57, followed by Karen Thrippleton in 28:29 and Clare Boyle with 30:12. I should also mention our two juniors Max Oerend and Lewis Boyle who finished ahead of their mums in 28:34 and 29:13 respectively and Nelson Charlton who helped his Dad, Neil around one lap today in preparation for a glorious return. Well done everybody!
In the canine run today our winner was Dylan who, with Emma Payne, finished in 27:57 and our dog marshal was Dexter with Janice Slater.
It’s great to see so many people making this a family trip out on a Sunday morning and Michelle and I thank you for your support for Run Sunday.
I hope whatever you’re doing this week, it turns out well and we look forward to seeing you all on a Run Sunday soon. All the best and Good Running
