Well done to all those who competed in races this month. Remember, if you have raced – please let us know as we’d like to pat you on the back (digitally at least)! Simply email the club address with the heading ‘RESULT’.
Alex Cooper braved the alarmingly titled Boxhill Ballbuster and took twenty minutes off his personal best! Fantastic!
I took part in the Brentwood half marathon last weekend along with skipper Seb Balcombe, Tim Smith and Laura Turner. Tim finished a fantastic 91st (of over 2000) with a time dead on 1hr 30. Seb came in a minute later, I was another 12 minutes back and Laura popped her head over the line in a very respectable 2hrs 10. Well done all of us!
I thought 6 days would be plenty of time to recover for the Victoria Park Open 5. It wasn’t, but I still finished. A good showing from the club saw Ellen Greaves, Colin Staniland, Alex Cooper and Jane Dennyson all cross the finish line with good times – Ellen came 8th in her category, finishing in just 31.40!
Well done to anyone else who raced this month, I can’t give a shout out though as you didn’t let me know. There’s a really busy month ahead with our 1st London League outings as well as our Aquathlon – expect a HUGE report in a months time.
Best, Chris Skinner
