Race Roundup #22 – 21/04/2019
It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’ve got a double race roundup for you today.
Rewinding back to Saturday 13th, Rob and Linda were in the Lakes running the Hawkshead Trail 16k. The scenery and the views are amazing, which is a welcome distraction from some of the brutal climbs – the Coffin Trail being one of them, a challenging 1 mile ascent up some steep and rocky terrain. Well done!
Further afield, James Scully was in Paris to run the Paris marathon. Another great event that take in some of the iconic landmarks of Paris.
Continuing the international theme Foxy and Chris ran a race in Cologne over the Easter weekend. My German is terrible and I therefore can’t find any results, but well done regardless, it looked warm!
Lastly a group of MFR were in Salford on Friday for the Salford 10k. A firm MFR favourite that many of us missed out on entering not realising just quite how popular it was! The weather was unseasonably warm, but you all performed amazingly. Well done to Nick M, Ed W, Joe C, Dan E, Amy, Andrew P, James Scully, Angelo, James Seddon and Mel. Club champs points are on their way to you all.
We had a couple of notable Parkruns over the Easter weekend too. Darren went on to set another 5k PB in 20:18, Ed was on the podium at Fairview in Ireland, Jacqui Swain made a comeback at Stretford and Dave jetted back from South America just in time to make Highbury Fields in London
