Wednesday 8th May – John Carr Series Race 2

Report from Peter Gosling

The second of the John Carr races in Saltaire this year was a 5k round Roberts Park, neighbouring streets and the canal path. Very well organised (they provided safety pins, fancy!) and not a shabby time for me. First man was Michael Malyon of Baildon Runners in 16.40, first woman was Helen Smith of Ribble Valley Harriers in 18.27. 44th man was yours truly in 21.35.

  1. When I was younger , in my fifty’s the John Carr Series used to be very popular with our members at least 20 members taking part for each race , my best in 2001 or 2002 was around 22 minutes . In Roberts Park I have done few 15k in Summer time . 21.35 is a great time in this new different 5k environment , it could be worth just above 20 minutes in the old fast and furious place . Well done to Peter G.
