South of England XC Championships

Catch up result from last week. We had two runners, Pete Riley and Leo Cole, who took part in this regional championships at Beckenham. The course was 15km, and Pete finished in 1:03:21, while Leo was close behind in 1:04:06. To their eternal credit, both then turned out for the club at the NESS fixture the following day. Great work Gents!


Derbyshire XC League

Angela Wray was north of Watford for this hilly 5.5 mile XC race. She finished in 25th place, in 49:31. Good work Wraymondo.


Great Bentley Half Marathon

Plenty of WRC at this popular event yesterday. Yes, we all moaned about the wind, but in fairness it probably helped us on the way out as much as it hindered us on the way back, and there were enough PBs and decent performances to think that maybe it didn’t have that much effect. Special shoutouts to Pete Coates for finishing in 5th place, averaging 5:36 per mile, and to Shane Ketteridge for knocking 13 minutes off his previous best.

I’ve tried to capture all the PBs, but if you didn’t note it on Strava or else shout it in my face after the run than I may have missed it.

Three of us are using Great Bentley as our wildcard event for the Club Champs (Tables are updated, and the big news is James Blackshaw is in 2nd place), so please let me know if you’d also like to use this race as your wildcard.
