Weekly Review – Week Ending 10th November

A very quiet weekend with only 3 members racing. Luckily we had a club championship event on Thursday evening as 12 people made their way to the outskirts of Bristol for the Dark River 5 miler. 5 miles of mud, hills and mist in the dark, all to the tune of Tawny Owls calling.CRC brought home numerous trophies. John Wilmott was 3rd overall (and made the group photo again), Debra Kearsey was the fastest vet 50 (where Jane Tunnicliffe and Lois Norcott were 3rd and 4th). Marie Vinolo-Young was 3rd lady overall, coming not far behind Laura Midwinter who was the first lady, picking up her 5th trophy in 5 weeks.Michael Fisher ran the Gower Half Marathon in Wales, definitely not a course to gain a PB if his time is anything to go by. 2:24 starting off in torrential rain and finishing under sunny skies.Despite going to university, it’s good to see John Hible still representing us as he did the Milton Keynes Cross Challenge.Annika Davidson did the Sodbury Slog on Sunday. Starting at 11:05 after a 2 minute silence for Remembrance Sunday, runners have 10 miles of mud to contend with. At the end you get possibly the best race t-shirt around.The image is from 2017And finally, a big thanks to the 18 people who assisted at the Neston Firework display. A reciprocal arrangement with the school where they provide marshalls for our 10K.
