Sixty-Six Finish the Bristol 10k – Sunday 20th May 2012

Sixty-six Bristol & West athletes completed the Bristol 10k on Sunday 20th May 2012 led home by Phil Wylie who finished seventh overall in 30:34. Several athletes were hoping for PBs but a cold wind meant that fast times weren’t the order of the day – which makes the PBs that were set all the more commendable. Chris Elson, Mike Down, Cy Knibb, Nick Rose and Keith Brackstone were all present spectating (and Dave Taylor was running) to show the depth of endurance coaching available in the club with Chris and Keith particularly interested to see how the graduates of the Whitehall Group were performing – and the answer was very well. Several athletes whose aspirations were to run sub-50 minutes found themselves running 47 or 48 minutes. Whilst others who had started out at Whitehall on a Monday night but had moved on to Chris’ Tuesday and Thursday sessions found themselves running well under forty minutes with Peter Woodward head of the class with 34:05 for forty-forth place in the race. Keith was pleased to see Bristol University Alumni Oli Mott (eleventh in 30:57) and Steve Francis (twenty-third in 32:36) in the top two dozen. In the age groups the Club performed well with Phil Parry first V45 and Mike Jacobs fifth in the same category.  In the F35 category Annabel Granger finished fourth and Kim Whitlock seventh, while Sarah Everitt was second F45. I have been unable to extract women’s only results from the Run Bristol web-site but believe our women’s team performed well and the men certainly did and five in the first 23 finishers must surely have been sufficient to secure the first male team position – as soon as the team results are announced be sure they will be reported on the blog.
