HURRAH! For Corsham Running Club

It hasn’t been the busiest week for us on the racing calendar but we did put on the fantastically successful Hazelbury Hurrah!

We did however, have 10 runners at the 3rd Heddington 5K of the summer. With 6 of them getting a PB, well done to Mark Cortaville, Brian Atkins, Laura Midwinter, Lauren Edwards, Jane Clarke and Kathryn Roynon.

Gareth Evans did the Two Tunnels half marathon in Bath on Sunday, I should imagine that the part in the tunnels was a glorious respite from the sun and assisted him to go under 100 minutes.

And of course we had the second running of the Hazelbury Hurrah! With double the entrants and also the inclusion of a Fun Run (ages 4-7) and a Junior Race.

It felt a little manic at times, but it’s a testament to the fantastic volunteers from CRC that it didn’t look that way to the runners of which we had 301 across the 3 races, 3.5 times as many as last year.

11 of the Hurrah! Racers were CRC members with Lee Davis first back again. We also had a large number of children of our members or One Mile Club members in the two extra races, with some superb performances.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped out with the event. I know our race directors David Mackie and Gill Fox (as well as the rest of the HH! committee) are extremely grateful that you gave up part of your Friday night to ensure the smooth running of the event.

Here’s to next year.
