Another great night of racing – the results and huge thanks to the volunteers can be found here – 2022 John Roberts Summer 5k Series – Race 3 – Results – Witham Running Club (withamrc.org.uk)
Brigid and Tony Wallen donned the black and gold for the last time before transferring to their new club in Scotland, the Kinross Road Runners. They took part in this 5.2 mile road race on 27 June, with an uphill start and a fast downhill finish if you had any energy left, finishing in 41.51 and 38.37 respectively.
James Attenborough took part in this 3.5 mile run, finishing in 24:17.
Great Bentley Friday 5
Five runners were in Great Bentley on Friday taking part in another of this 5 mile race series:
Sam Hajder 31:50 PB
Leo Cole 31:52
Adam Hocken 40:43
Steven Alder 43:03
Ross Silverton 45:57
Four WRC runners were out at this 14+ mile ETE event, which I understand awards bonus points for having a drink at one or more of the fantastic former Ridley’s pubs on the route.
The results are provisional, pending the bonus points calculations, however:
Terry Alabaster 2:20:56 3rd
Chris Beazley 3:54:14
Nichola Norman 3:54:24
Andy White 4:05:23
Rat Race – Man vs Coast
This sounded more like an extreme trail duathlon from the race description, with the organisers having to clarify that “this is a running event, not a swimming event” on the website! Liz Prior, Rachel O’Leary, and Ben O’Leary travelled to Cornwall to take on the 25 mile challenge, finishing together in 07:18:16 (Strava elapsed time). This was Rachel and Ben’s longest run to date, having previously run 20m and 18m respectively!
Nick Looby and Gerry Greenwold were in Wales for this 50km ultra. The weather conditions were so dire that the 165km race was cancelled overnight with all the runners being taken off of the route. Despite the weather, and the over 10,200ft of elevation, Gerry and Nick completed the 50k run in 12:46:32 and 13:35:13 (Strava elapsed time).
