Weekly Review – Week Ending 12th July

There is only one place to start this week – WE’RE BACK! It is groups of 6 (including the leader), it is slightly different to what we’re used to and it’s probably a while still before we’re back to normal but we have started to meet again.

We are running a booking system and we are hoping to display and open sessions on a rolling programme to give people more time to plan and book sessions. Please bear with us whilst we engage your leaders and embed it into the booking system.

We also had the results of the Virtual Avon Valley Relay and Holly who organised it is looking at doing a winter version so please let her know if you would like to do it again.

Lockdown Lords came 5th overall, 4th male team and only 10 seconds off of a podium spot.

Ladies of Lockdown came 15th overall and came 2nd female team, just 24 seconds behind the winners.

Our other 6 teams were 29th, 33rd, 35th, 41st, 44th and 60th out of 71. A bid congratulations to everyone that took part.

In individual placings John Wilmott came 2nd AND 3rd in the 2.5K as he did it twice, once for us and once with some friends. His time for us was 10 seconds slower than his friend’s team. And don’t forget that 10 seconds was the time that Lockdown Lords missed out on a podium spot by. Oh dear John!

In the 5K we had 3rd place male and 3rd place female with Craig Rumble and Marie Vinolo-Young. Laura Midwinter was 2nd female in the 7.5K leg.

We didn’t have any placings in the 10K. Our best placings were an 8th place in both male and female for Stuart Henderson and Vicky Henderson.

As well as the running there was also a photo competition and a names competition. We didn’t win either but there were some great photos in which we had 5 entries. And while they didn’t win, Holly picked 3 of our names for an honourable mention – Lockdown Lords, Pandemic Peacock Pals, Virtual Relayality.

Thank you to Susan Mackie for organising our teams and getting us all involved.
