Weekend Race Results

24 June 2018 - By Steve Hennings

Maldon Summer 5k Series – Race 4, Thursday

Runners are a fickle bunch. One minute it’s all doom & gloom, and the next they are getting a PB! And so it went for Giles Sowerby this week, with that elusive 5k PB arriving on Thursday night. Season best times for Leo Cole and Anita Grainger.

Steeple Bumpstead 10k

Silly name, but an interesting race over multi terrain. 2 years ago it was a mud fest, but this year the course was hot and firm underfoot. Ben Miller travelled there with some of the MRG crew to put in a respectable time, given the course, of 0:58:43

Quendon and Rickling 10k

Just losing out in the “silly name” competition this week, the Quendon and Rickling 10k formed part of a weekend running festival in aid of the local school. Kevin Harper took on the mainly off road course finishing with a great time of 0:44:26

Mersea Round the Island Race

Some bright spark came up with the idea of this race a few years back, and since then we’ve always had a hardened group attending to take on the challenging course which includes fields, roads, sand, etc. with one club member probably needing to get a tetanus boost after having a run in with some barbed wire.

Brigid Wallen was the 1st Lady Vet over the finish line
