Several of the Club’s successful teams at the Midland Road Relays the previous weekend returned to the fray on Saturday. It seems there were few ill effects. Will DAVIDSON was the second finisher at Frimley Lodge in 16:36, a PB by two seconds. At Ashton Court, the Club had the first three finishers, with Jarlath McKENNA leading the way, followed by David AWDE and Henry SLY. Their times were 16:13, 16:45 and 17:44, with David’s time being a PB.
There were also first places for Maciej BIALOGONSKI at Pomphrey Hill with a time of 16:33 and Jack MILLAR, at Long Eaton, finishing in 15:37.
For the ladies, Alexa PARKER was the first female finisher at Wanstead Flats in 20:06, while Claire HALLISSEY had the same result at Alice Holt in 19:55.
This week the Performance of the Week is awarded to Lewis ADAMSON for his PB at Pomphrey Hill.
Steve GRANT has provided a few words on his visit to Longrun Meadow in Taunton.
“By coincidence Mark BURLEY and I were at Longrun Meadow for the first time – Mark in preparation for a significant off-road race on Sunday and me on the first leg of a University pick-up. The parkrun is an attractive and convenient diversion if you’re heading South on a Saturday morning. It’s a flat course with a small amount of tarmac, some bark round a potentially muddy stretch and the majority of the route on a gravel path. With one and three quarter laps, there are fewer lapping issues than we have in the Bristol and Chipping Sodbury parkruns. The briefing is held in a large open sided barn that would be welcome in wetter weather and the route passes Britain’s largest living Willow Green Cathedral that is worth a closer look before or after the run. The youth of Taunton AC were out in force with a JM15-17 winning and a J11-14 in second place with two further JM11-14s in the top twelve. Impressive stuff!”
