We’re back to a regular weekly review this week.
Starting at the Devizes 10K which was a club championship event. We had 12 runners there setting some excellent times, leading the way for Corsham were John Wilmott and David Mackie, not far behind them were Vicky Henderson (I’m counting her as CRC already) and Laura Midwinter who were 3rd and 4th lady overall.
At the Salisbury half marathon, Dave Townsend achieved a 2.5 minute PB of 1:37:26. Mark Cortaville didn’t quite achieve a PB but he was very close and still achieved an excellent time.
In other half marathon news we had 4 ladies running at the Forest of Dean half marathon, including Jane Tunicliffe doing her first half for over 4 years. All 4 of our ladies were within 11 minutes of each other too.
After a long injury lay off it was good to see Stewart Unsworth return to racing at the Brinkworth Bash 10K. He was taking it easy as a return race but he still came in around 56 minutes. Good to have the Bolton Bullet back.
It was a family affairs in Pembrokeshire where Richard Biggs ran the Dale 10k with his daughter. No taking it easy for the chairman though as he finished 10 minutes before her. Well done Dad.
