The breezy conditions, otherwise known as Storm Brian, caused a few cancellations particularly on the south coast and in parts of South Wales and will have affected performances, with very few PBs recorded by Club runners.
Two runners who had excellent runs at the Cardiff Cross Challenge/Gwent League last week continued their good form and had first places on Saturday. Jarlath MCKENNA was first finisher in 15:40 at Cannon Hill in Birmingham while Maciej BIALOGONSKI was first at Chipping Sodbury with a time of 16:45. Graham CRUMP also ran at Cannon Hill finishing as second VM60-64 in 20:53. While other runners at Chipping Sodbury included Helen NEWBERRY, who was first female in 20:23; and Jonathan GOODLAND and Rosey MUSHENS who were first VM60-64 and VW50-54 in times of 20:24 and 21:40.
Robbie STEWART was the first finisher at Ashton Court in 17:33. Greg CHANCE was seventh and first VM35-39 in a time of 18:35. Jane COLMAN was the third female and first VW45-49 in 22:29 and Nicola OLDROYD was the thirteenth female and first SW20-24 in 24:22.
At Wotton, Jonathan BENNETT was the first finisher in 18:54 and Lewis ADAMSON had an eight second PB, in fourth place, of 19:37. Lewis’s run was judged to be the Performance of the Week. Making his debut at Sheffield Hallam, Matt BATTENSBY was first in 16:38.
Pete CLARK was the Club’s leading finisher at Pomphrey Hill in sixteenth place with a time of 21:12. Pete was also first in his Age Category along with Molly CHILTON, Paul SMARDON and Julie ILOGU. Molly was, in fact, the second female with a time of 21:42. Alison HURFORD was in ninth place and first VW55-59 at Burnham & Highbridge in 24:34.
Bill and Joseph HULL both had PBs at Treviso in north-east Italy. Bill was the first finisher and first VM45-49 in 19:09 and Joseph was fourth and first JM11-14 in 20:18.
