Other Weekend Results – Bristol & Chelmsford

18 September 2017 - By Anita Grainger

In addition to Hatfield Forest Trail Half Marathon and Dedham 10k we had a couple of other members in races:

Louise Pascoe ventured over to Bristol to take part in the half marathon in the second of her series triple. Louise continues to go from strength to strength and smashed through the 2 hour barrier that she’s had her eye on for a while finishing in a new PB of 1.57.04 well done Louise! Part 3 to follow next week.

Closer to home I decided to check out the Decathlon running series, a series of free events  open to all decathlon card holders to encourage more people to participate in running events. The decathlon card is a loyalty card which is free to sign up to. Yesterday the series ventured to Chelmsford for a 5k race. The route was largely similar to the Chelmsford Parkrun route with a couple of changes. All runners were provided with a shirt to run in and a goody bag and medal afterwards. There are no official times posted and the goody bag and medal had to be collected from the store after the run, no doubt to get some business. All in all it was a friendly event and quite good without the fuss of bigger races. I put in a steady run continuing my steady journey back from injury finishing in a time of 26.31.
