Weekend Race Results
20 May 2018 - By Steve Hennings
Another busy weekend of racing for WRC.
The first Club Champs 5 mile race of the year had 14 members tackling the warm, rolling course with a good number of PBs. Steve Watson was the first member home.
Big thanks to Tracy Denby and Rob Grimwood for the vocal support – quiet as ever!!
YMCA North London 10k, Crouch End
David & Anita Grainger headed to beautiful Crouch End for a hot, hilly and challenging 10k. Everyone completing the race got a donut at the end, which is a novelty.

Colchester Zoo Stampede 10k
Having been delayed due to the snow earlier this year, the Colchester Zoo Stampede 10k finally got underway today with some very noisy support given by the Meerkats. Apparently they’d all been getting tanked up since early morning, and had a little too much sun already when the runners came past. Their rowdy behaviour did not put off the 7 members running today, with new member Helen Came first WRC member over the line.

With its 1st running, Sylvie Bullen Bell was despatched to Boxted to represent Witham RC, reporting back that it was little hot, 50% off road but had a fabulous medal!!

Hard Way Half Marathon – Isle of Portland
There is a clue in the name of the race, but that didn’t put Dave Holdich off travelling to Portland to tackle this mainly offroad beast with around 450m of climbing, coming home in a very creditable time
