Race Results w/c 29/03/21
4 April 2021 - By James Blackshaw
We’re back!! Or, at least, moderately back. The easing of restrictions has meant that racing has returned, and it’s great to see so many WRC runners grabbing the staggered-start bull by the horns and donning the black and gold vest once again. Not so great if you’re the results secretary for the club and was quietly enjoying Sunday nights watching reruns of The Office on Netflix (not the film though, my biggest disappointment since Alton Towers). Never mind, back to it.
MEC Eggstravaganza Day 1
Unless I’ve got it wrong (as if!), it appears there was only one run in what is normally a four day event organised by the Mid-Essex Casuals.
On the 12 mile course Andy White and Geoff Reddin finished in 2:10:35, while Chairman Bill came 2nd overall on the 7.1 mile course in 59:18, and his better half Jo finished in 1:30:44.
Kempton Park Racecourse
James Attenborough and Liz Prior were at this RunThrough event at the famous racecourse. They both made huge PBs, with James going round the HM course in 1:41:03 and coming 10th in his category, and Liz finishing the 10k course in 47:31, coming 11th in category, and earning another race for her Silver Standard. Great work both!
East Hanningfield Trail Marathon
It was WRC runners aplenty at this popular local trail marathon, in almost perfect running conditions.
22nd – Terry Alabaster – 5:12:39
23rd – Rich Green – 5:12:45
50th – Jenny Layley – 6:04:57
51st – Sarah Naughton – 6:05:05
52nd – Jodee Mayer – 6:05:06
59th – Nick Looby – 6:26:26
60th – Gerry Greenwold – 6:26:33
Great work everyone!
