Essex Marathon & Half Marathon
We had a number of runners at this Essex Marathon & Half Marathon. Some great results throughout, but deserving of a special mention is Peter Coates, taking on his first ever marathon and managing to go sub 3.
Peter Coates – 2:53:23 – 23rd
Rachel Dingley – 1:50:29 – 148th
Ben O’Leary – 1:50:30 – 150th
John Lloyd – 2:02:48 – 203rd
Ross Silverton – 02:10:12 – 225th
This was another of Hare & Tortoises’ excellent 6 hour lap challenge events. We had a good spread of runners aiming for different distances, with the girls all getting 20+ miles in the bag, while Mr Lilley ran two laps for the half marathon and then polished off a Mr Whippy.
Sarah Naughton 26.2 miles
Jodee Mayer – 26.2 miles
Sasha Rush – 26.2 miles
Natalie Lilley – 20 miles
Karen Flowers – 20 miles
Jason Lilley 13.1 miles
Great work all!
On Your Marks
WRC were well represented at this Essex Trail Event in Marks Tey, on a 9 mile course. Great runs from everyone, with Andy Lager securing his much favoured 2nd place.
South Down’s Way 50
I was at this Centurion Running event on Saturday, a “50” mile run (only actually 49), with 6,500ft of elevation, over the South Downs, finishing in 9hrs and 12 minutes.
Dave Wright 15
Leo Cole ran this event in 1:46. Great work.
Well done everyone!
Please let me know if I’ve missed your race or result.
