Hello Harriers. It’s a been relatively quiet weekend from a Race Report perspective, so I hope you’ve all been enjoying the lovely weather and getting out for some nice, gentle bluebell runs. If you’ve not yet been to Hervines Park, I can highly recommend a soothing visit.
That is not to say that there have not been some fabulous performances. It was a first-placed finish and an all-time parkrun PB for Lily Jessop-Tranter down in beautiful Bournemouth, with a time of 21.04, whilst Katie Royals was also rewarded with an all-time PB at Rickmansworth (20.33). There were course PBs for Sylvia Moss (21.14, Rickmansworth) and Victoria Lucas (25.53, Wycombe Rye). Finally, congratulations to Mike ‘Tiny’ Turney for a fabulous first at Wycombe Rye, in an enviable time of 18.51.
On the hills Claire Dickinson took on the fearsome long course Maverick event, completing the half marathon route from Princes Risborough in a very respectable 2.31.00. Well done, Claire!
