Good Evening, Race Report fans from a Race Report HQ which is currently feeling pretty chilled. Although apparently there’s a football match in a bit and I guess that might alter things… Before we get into this week’s Report, a huge well done to Harriers competing in yesterday’s Chiltern League and the ESAA English Schools Cup Final. There were some brilliant results from CHAC at both events. A special thank you to those who took their stint marshalling yesterday at the Chiltern League: as you’ll know, this one marshalling spot each year is one of the few asks that the League makes upon us as a Club, so we really do appreciate people giving up their time to help out.
Good Evening Race Report fans. I hope you have managed to enjoy some (rare) dry weekend running, or at least limited yourself to drizzle if you did decide to go out in the rain. Here in Race Report HQ the cat is feeling very smug, all tucked up on the warmest blanket and having managed to get herself some leftover tuna for her supper.
As seems to be the theme at the moment, I’ve a few late entries from last weekend: firstly Charlie Wood, who sped his way round the St Neots Riverside Half Marathon in an exhausting 1.15.27 (Sunday 20 November), and I also wanted to confirm David Saul’s time for the Rugged Radnage 10k - 1.01.00.
Good Evening, Race Report fans, from the Bates Motel which has the chilled-out vibe of your favourite pub this evening.
Good Evening, Race Report fans and - of course - we shall start with congratulations to everyone who took part in yesterday’s Chiltern League cross-country. It was a glorious day for running and CHAC athletes did not disappoint, despite being pitched against some of the fastest from across the home countries. Look out for Steve Perkin’s report to come.
Good Evening, Race Report Fans. I’m afraid you’ll find this evening’s report a little sparse on official results. At the time of writing Michelle Trigg is going really well in the New York Marathon, on track to finish in under 4 hours. Well done, Shelly!
NEWSFLASH! She just finished in 3.49.23. Awesome running!
Ghoulish evening to you, Halloween Race report fans!
It has been a quiet week from a Race Report perspective. Tessa Passey kicked the weekend off early at Serpentine AC’s Last Friday of the Month 5k, clocking a time of 22.26.
Good Evening, Race Report fans, from a most dramatic and stormy Race Report HQ.
Whilst I think everyone who ventured out to run today deserves a medal, if you were racing you deserve no less than a big, shiny cup (and something warming to put in it)! Those brave souls were Ian Lawson and Mairead O’Rourke at the Abingdon Marathon, and Hywel Thomas at the Beach Head Ultra Marathon. In Abingdon Ian clocked a time of 3.31.58, getting an early (and wet) qualifier for the infamous Comrades Marathon under the belt, and Mairead was not far behind in 3.36.59. Hywel took on some 50-odd km and 4,500ft of elevation at Beachy Head, completing the event in a hugely respectable 5.37.27.
Good Evening, Race Report fans. Firstly, and most crucially, a huge congratulations to all who took part in yesterday’s first Chiltern League match of the season. Chiltern Harriers AC came away with the overall win on the day. Look out for Steve Perkin’s report for a full download of the day’s excitement.
Good Evening, Race Report fans. I hope you have had a good weekend. Once again, Harriers have been in ultra action. This time it was Dave Bellamy, taking on three gruelling days of the Atlantic Coast Challenge along the Cornish coast. Each day saw Dave take on more than 40km of running, from Padstow to Lands End, Friday to Sunday. Dave clocked very respectable times on all three days. Well done!
Well, what a weekend. That’s all I can say. I’m not sure how the rest of October can live up to it.
