It’s been a quiet week on the racing front this week.
We had 13 people running at the 1st Heddington 5K of the summer with Lauren Edwards and Helen Wilkinson achieving a PB.
And we had 2 runners at the Broad Town 5M.
The lack of races has allowed our runners to get out and enjoy the countryside with many using this weekend to do their recce for the Cotswold Way Relay. And we also enjoyed the Bowood away run in the week.
Just up on the relish web page, the results . I ran 1: 36:23, which was first home for VM60, and 28th out of 315 in total.
As a report … An interesting race for the half runners it was three laps of Lacock … which is different. Then I found they started the half in two stages then fed 3 other groups … I think 10k runners, in. So you were constantly overtaking people, but had to think ‘where am I’ for much of the race. I enjoyed it, very good community feeling to the run. But hilly and several off road sections to navigate so not easy to run a PB, but lots of fun.
It’s been another great week for CRC.
We had 3 teams at Endure 24, running 5 mile loops in rotation for 24 hours. Cors’Am Going To Take It Seriously achieved 36 laps, Cors’Am Just Here For Prosecco And Cake 31 laps and Cors’Am Going To Run More Than One Lap did 29 laps for a total of 480 miles.
Sunday saw the 1st Rosie’s Rainbow Run and Ride at Castle Combe race circuit raising funds for the Springboard charity in memory of Rosie Simpson. Early reports have all been glowing, well done to all involved.
We also had members at Lacock Half Marathon and 10K with Alan Rex Kember winning the V60 category at the Half Marathon in 1:36:23.
Ian Doyle took part in the Weymouth Half Marathon.
Remember that all our results are available at Member’s Results on our website.
