Club Announcements – Monday 16th March

For the time being, Monday Club Announcements will be posted on the website and Facebook rather than in person prior to the club run.

Tonight’s club run will go ahead as planned, but:
– There will be no announcements, this notice will replace them
– Turn up ready to run; meet your running companions outdoors
– avoid using the changing rooms when not necessary, and take any other appropriate precautions if you do.
– The club and its members should continue to follow government, NHS, England Athletics advice, as linked to on the club notice here:
– Do not turn up to any of our runs if you are showing symptoms
– Check the website or Facebook for up-to-date information on all Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday club sessions, and of course the AGM.

Onto the business-as-usual results roundup!
A couple of results from last week’s announcements:
At the Go Tri Redditch Duathlon, we had Alan West in 1:07:02 and Suz West in 55:44.
At the Cambridge Half Marathon, we had Rebekah Hilton in 2:19:02, Curtis Hilton in 2:15:27, and James Ashley was only just outside the top 100 of this big race, with a PB of 1:17:47!

Notable parkruns this weekend include Stewart Bird doing his 50th, while Stacey Marston joined the Cowell Club with her 100th unique location!
Rich Bayliss was third at East Park, and Maeve Kenny was third at Cannon Hill, where Paul Coughlan got a whopping 87.71% age grading!

In non-running events, I was unable to find any official results, but John Cheel, Simon Newman, and Sean Rose ‘Rode the Reservoir’, covering 75km, while Sara Foster completed the 100km route. Also, Jon Dunn Walked the Chase, covering 49km.

We had representatives in Half Marathons up and down the country. Linda Howell was up in Liverpool, getting round in 2:35, while Nicki Mann completed the distance in down Bath in 2:15:55. Closer to home in the Wolverhampton Trail Half, we had Grainne Bermingham in 3:08:24, Kevin Peace in 2:17:36, and a fantastic performance from Jonathan Stanforth winning the race in 1:30:09, with almost a 3 minute lead!
