Halloween 5K

A great night was had by all at the Halloween 5k on Thursday. Most of the runners dressed up in some sort of scary get-up. One runner just wore a scary face mask and then took it off 300m into the first lap (ps. it was me)

New York City Marathon

Owen Dare travelled to the Big Apple for this iconic marathon, and went round in an amazing 3:06:56, bettering his own club record! Good work!

 

Ellinsons XC Race 2 – Hilly Fields

With 40 members attending there certainly wasn’t any shortfall of talent on display, in fact it was an exhibition of XC running skills. First across the line for WRC was Heydon, who showed balls and determination to take 17th place for the men, while Hayley Ellen had an amazing race, cheekily taking 4th place for the ladies. These fantastic efforts meant we retained our dignity and 4th place, equal with Great Bentley, and keeping us from bottom of the table. Two of members didn’t finish; Tony Wallen pulled up short with a calf injury, and Jason Lilley also DNF’d, but I don’t know any of the details.

Thought for the week: Every year on the 5th of August the Mars Curiousity Rover celebrates the anniversary of its arrival by singing the Happy Birthday song. To itself. All alone. On Mars.

    A few Halloween pics are in the gallery. Sorry that there are not more but my old Brownie 127 could not keep up with the speed of the runners in the low light.
