The Great Bristol Half-Marathon – Sunday 17th September 2017

18 Sep

Forty-one members of the club took part in the race. From scanning the results, it would appear that Bristol & West AC ladies took the first team prize while the men ‘s team were second. Jack Bancroft was the club’s first finisher. Talking to Jack afterwards, he told Chris Elson that he was tired after a successful track season and a bit short of distance training for the event. Ever green Annabel Granger had a cracking run posting her fastest half-marathon for four years and only 48 seconds outside her PB. From Power of 10, David Eagon, Andrew Drake, Dan Schofield, David Engledew, Sheng Peng, Grant Rees were among those posting PBs, while Debbie Hunt and Fliss Russell reported they had posted PBs (in the latter’s case by 3 minutes).  In the age groups David Engledew was fourth M55, Alison Engledew was fourth W55 (family synergy there then) , Chris Pearce fourth M65 and Christine Rose fifth W60.

Rob Colman ran 2:09.38 – an excellent job as the 2 hours 10 minutes pacemaker. Alan Wilcox was also seen doing a pacemakers job and the Duracell bunny suits were quite fetching!
