Race Round Up #11 – 30/12/2018
Congratulations on making it to the end of the first working week back after the Christmas break! Whilst it may have been a shock to the system for a lot of us, some of our fellow runners didn’t ease up or let the festivities get in the way of their racing.
On Boxing Day Lucy took part in the Chevin Chase in Yorkshire – a favourite of Lucy’s (and the Brownlee brothers), the course is hilly and mixed terrain. A little further south, Dave took on one of the oldest races in the country, the Chester Round the Walls. At 4.7 miles it’s not a conventional distance, and most probably a club record.
A few days later Rob, Linda, Nico and Claire headed up to Clitheroe to run the ever popular Ribble Valley 10k. Well done to all, in particular to Linda for taking 2nd place in her category! Rob commented that it was a well organised race with good conditions and course records set in both male and female categories. If you haven’t done it before, give it some thought for 2019.
Lastly many of you also took part in parkruns up and down the country. Darren continues to go from strength to strength setting parkrun PBs what seems like every week!
If I’ve missed a race you’ve done over Christmas, please let me know so you get the credit you deserve!
