Weekly Review – Week Ending 21st June

It’s 1,713 miles and 295 runs this week. We had our regular Thursday evening session and a pub quiz hosted by Jane Tunnicliffe.

At the British Masters Virtual 5K, the Corsham 45-54 Ladies Team of Laura, Vicky and Susan put in a fantastic time of 1:07:36. Well done all.

And Laura and Vicky also managed to do another 3 virtual races in 1 run. The ISORUNCLUB 10miler, the Stampede Sports 20KM and the Midsummer Virtual Half Marathon.

Rebecca Edwards was also virtually racing, at the Longest Day Virtual 10K in 53:16.

She said – Ran through a bizarre mixture of weather: started out under dark clouds and a shower of rain with a stiff breeze then battled with heat and humidity towards the end. Not a bad run but it doesn’t feel like a race on your own and I missed the company of all the other runners. ☹️

While we can’t all be together we did have a socially distant Summer Solstice Sunrise run and Zoom call. David Mackie suggested going to a local hill for sunrise (4:52) and 8 people chose the regular hill at Little Solsbury Hill on the outskirts of Bath. They were treated to a lovely sunrise for a 3rd consecutive year.

Dave Mackie turned his sunrise run into a Dan Booth Round. A run taking in the 9 trig pillars surrounding Bath and involving going up and down lots of hills. Good effort Dave.

One person (your author) decided to mix it up and get properly socially distant for the Sunrise, heading to Cherhill and was treated to some spectacular views, shown below!
