It’s the Easter Monday after the Monday before (from when in England we have been allowed to take part in formally organised sports activities again) and that means Race Report is back. With lots of lovely pictures too.
Ali ‘She’s Nobody’s Fool’ Young came away the overall victor, and new female course record holder, for the Running Miles’ 6-hour timed event at Dinton Pastures on Thursday 1 April. Ali completed 39.3 miles in a very speedy 5.36.19. Neil Bates was also in the mood for ultra running on Good Friday, 2 April, under the auspices of the Centurion One Community event. With a little help from his Chiltern friends, Neil clocked up 50k in 4.57.17.
Also on Good Friday, CHAC were in egg-cellent form at the St Albans Easter 10k. Ian Lawson came home in 38.30, joined swiftly by: Glen Martin and Christine Taylor in PB times of 44.01 and 47.23, respectively; and Ruth Holroyd in 57.56.
On Saturday 3 April, Adam ‘Shooting out in Front’ Shute was rewarded for his hard lockdown training with a sub-3 marathon at Dorney Lake, coming in in 2.56.20. Well done!
Some shout outs for those Harriers who have been pounding the pavements in ‘virtual’ events this weekend: our own Berkeley Avenue Easter 5k Relay (thanks to Steve Perkin and Katie Royals for organising) and Jennifer Webb, who did a virtual Maidenhead 10. And finally, a huge thank you to Nick Hughes and team for organising the cross country competition at Chenies. It sounds like it was an egg-ceptional and egg-citing event :-)
