Weekend Race Results

7 October 2018 - By Steve Hennings

Saturday

Galway Bay Marathon

Over in Galway, Gerry Greenwold got a great PB going under 4hrs for the first time in 3:59:28

Saturday & Sunday

Saltmarsh 75 – Official results awaited

As the name suggests, this is run around the Saltmarshes and is 75 miles long, so appeals only to those weird ultra running types.

Matt Jordan decided to give it a go this year. Day 1 was around 62k which Matt finished in 6h 33m and day 2 60k in 7h 37m. Apparently it was hard work!!

Sunday

Southend Classic 10k

This race will be the county champs 10k in 2019. We had 4 members scouting the course a year in advance with PBs from Sylvie and Sandy on the day.
