Wix 5

An amazing day for Witham at the Wix 5 yesterday, with yet another club record for the Heydonator, 4 runners in the top 10, a bunch of PBs, and an even bigger bunch of club standard runs. Congrats also to all those that achieved a full set of club standards.

Going forward, I’ve written myself a little Excel macro (geek!) which means I’ll hopefully be able to automatically pick-up whether the run achieved a club standard, and when I get round to doing all the data scraping, whether it was a PB. Aren’t you lucky.

Stort 30

This lovely little trot along the river Stort was attended by three of our number, and, as far as I’m aware, it was the first ultra distance run for any of them. Great work guys!

Venice Marathon

Julia Bacon was in Venice to take part in the marathon, and finished in a very respectable 5:21:03


Felsted Trio 12

Our resident trail gurus of Wallen, Alabaster and Greenwold took to the trails around Felsted in this Essex Trail Events race. Unfortunately Gerry had to stop due an injury, but Terry and Brigid soldiered on to finish in 2:22:15.


Well done everyone. Let me know if I missed anything.



Thought for the week: “If the human brain were a computer, it could perform 38 thousand trillion operations per second. The world’s most powerful supercomputer, BlueGene, can manage only 0.02% of that.”
