Numbers were down this week with runners resting before the impending Bristol 10k on Sunday. The full title of this race is an ever-expanding mouthful.
At Ashton Court, Jarlath McKENNA was taking it easy after two marathons in the previous thirteen days but still finished first in 16:23. Matthew ROBINSON was in sixth place in 18:16, a new PB by one second.
At Bath Skyline Helen NEWBERRY was the first female in 18:28 and Maciej BIALOGONSKI was the fourth finisher in 18:46. Others having a gentler run on the tourist trail included Martha WHEELER and Daryl PHILLIPS at Chippenham (both the day before running the Great Bristol 10k).
Andrew DRAKE was the second finisher at Chipping Sodbury with Paul SMARDON and Nick WHITE in twenty-fifth and twenty-seventh place; in times of 21:07 and 21:13 respectively.
As usual your correspondent conducted an extensive appraisal of the results to come up with a deserving Performance of the Week. On Saturday it was Joseph HULL’s twenty-six second PB in a time of 21:06 at Pomphrey Hill. A close contender was Grace CLARIDGE who had a fourteen second PB in 23:08. Joseph and Grace were first JM11-14 and JW11-14 respectively. Grace was the overall first female and Jonathan BENNETT was the first finisher in 19:05.
