Race Round Up 6 & 7 – 18/11/18 & 25/11/18
This race update starts with an apology; last week was a busy one and I forgot to give you a race update, but fear not, this week’s edition will be a double bill!
On the 18th November we had members racing in the Conwy Half Marathon and the 13 Arches Trail Half. In Conwy, Pete, Julie and Peter B enjoyed the Welsh sunshine and put in great performances. Up in north Manchester a small contingent consisting of Paula, Amy, Jacqui and James raced the 13 Arches Trail Half organised by Radcliffe AC and each had great success in their categories. James took the 1st V40 prize, Jacqui first V35, Amy 1st Senior and Paula a top 5 place in her category. A big well done to all, judging by the photos they were all very happy!
Last weekend we had two races; the Salford Women’s 5.25 mile and the Wilmslow Festive 10k. Jacqui battled with some familiar faces in Salford from last week’s 13 Arches, taking 12th place at the annual race organised by Swinton Running Club, despite having been at a dinner party the night before! In Wilmslow, James, Amy and Daniel got club PBs, and were joined on the course by Steve, Nick, Tom , Pete and Joe. Massive congratulations to all.
Finally, one of our members hit a significant running milestone on Saturday. Dave Chambers ran his 100th parkrun at Stretford, an achievement 7 years in the making! Jordan sourced balloons to celebrate the event which were presented to Dave by Run Director Foxy as he crossed the line. You’ve given us all something to aspire to, Dave!
