Boston UK Marathon & Half Marathon
Several of our top boys went to Boston in Lincolnshire yesterday for either a marathon or half marathon, and they put in some excellent performances. The Heydonator, the Damienator, and Charlinator all PB’d, and Heydon smashed yet another age club record, taking nearly 20 minutes off the previous, and also faster than the current record for the 40-44 age category.
36th – Heydon Mizon – 2:45:24 – Club Record/PB
65th – Charlie Pridmore – 2:51:48 – PB
72nd – Sean Darney – 2:52:45
17th – Peter Coates – 1:15:17
27th – Damien Walsh – 1:17:55 – PB
56th – Andrew Smith – 1:23:40
Angles Way 50k Ultra
Gavin Laws took on this 50k trail run as part of his training for a much longer race in June. He finished in 4:54;28, officially coming in 2nd place. However, had he not been sent the wrong way by a local scarecrow early in the race, he most probably would have come 1st. This is what happens when you trust Worzel Gummidge.
Three of our regular trail runners were at this 6 mile Essex Trail Event race around Galleywood
Well done everyone, let me know if I’ve missed your race or result.
Thought for the week: “If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far you can’t hear them anymore.”
