Yusuf Firat is amazing! He managed to run a 5 mile PB, at the Hadleigh 5 mile race, just a week after running a marathon! And he knocked 32 seconds off his previous best! He came 8th overall, was 1st MV50 and won a nice cash prize of £10. Incredibly this was his 20th PB of the year! Mark White supporting Yusuf finished in the same time of 33:37 in 9th. Mary Ann Tuli also won a nice cash prize of £10 for being 3rd Female. Son Eddie had a great run in the Fun Run finishing 2nd under 8, and was treated to a happy meal with Mary Ann’s winnings.
In the Hadleigh 10 Craig Sisson finished in 20th place in a time of 1:06:08. Bill Banner finished in 1:15:33, and was disappointed with his time, but was still a good run on a hilly course in tough conditions. Looks like Kirsty Millard & Kevin Millard had much nicer conditions in the Valencia 10K.
At the St Neots Half marathon David Bray was the first Haverhill runner to finish, coming 123rd in 1:31:52. Ann-Louise Salt had a great run finishing in 288th place in 1:40:55 “almost back to pre-mum pace”. Karen Martin, Jack Tappin, Shirley Fowler, Michael Hodson, Mark Carpenter and Peter Brunning also successfully completed the half marathon check the results out here:
The PB league competition has now finished for this year, well done to everyone who took part. There has been an amazing 370 PB’s since the start of the year!
