Good Evening, Race Report fans. With the Summer holidays well-and-truly underway, it feels like it has been a slightly quieter weekend from a racing perspective, albeit the results are no less hot than usual!
Kicking things off with parkrun, huge congratulations to Ben Hannen, Aran Davidson and Chris Pitkin, who all earned themselves all-time PBs yesterday. Ben clocked 19.54 at Bushy Park, Aran - 15.47 at Rickmansworth (and a 1st placed finish as well), and Chris - 25.54 at Cassiobury Park. There were course PBs as well: Patrick Ahern and Martin Allen (20.30 and 23.40 at Rickmansworth); Lindsay Turnery and Victoria Lucas (24.26 and 25.29 at Wycombe Rye); and Richard Lloyd (27.52 at Church Mead, Amersham). Finally, Eleanor Shields was victorious on the hills of Church Mead in a time of 21.27.
Today saw runners in action on the roads in the Bearbrook 10k. Despite the heat, Katie Royals came away 4th female in a very respectable time of 43.03. She was joined by Tamsin Finch in 52.25 and Ed Wright in 45.40.
Well done to everyone running and racing this weekend.
A small update in relation to the Shardeloes 10k: despite hopes to arrange the event his year, major parking problems have emerged resulting in the event not going ahead in 2022. We are hopeful of finding a solution for 2023.
