Michael Gilbert had a great race at the Bury 5 on Friday. He came 2nd with a chip time of 26:54! This was exactly the same chip time as the winner, so could have possibly won it if he’d started right on the start line (he was 2 secs behind on gun time). This time puts Michael top of the club records by over a minute!
Haverhill were also 2nd mens team! With Andrew Bell & Tony Bacon making up the rest of the team. They came 12th and 13th respectively finishing with exactly the same chip time of 29:15!
Kirsty Millard had a fantastic run, knocking over 2 minutes off her previous best! She moves up to 4th on the club records with 36:01! Kevin Millard is showing great improvement at the moment, he ran 34:52 and took 1min7secs off his previous best! He now has 6 PB’s this year which puts him joint 2nd in the PB league! Neil Mustoe took a good chunk off his PB too (1min28 secs), he ran 35:53. It was also his 6th PB of the year and so joins Kevin in joint 2nd place in the league.
Teresa Franklin took 8 seconds off her PB, running 41:32.
Ross Arnold also had a good race, running 40:14.
On Saturday there was a lot of parkrunning going on. Tony Bacon was first at Harlow parkrun. Vashti Macdonald-Clink (V Mac Clink) was 2nd female at the Great Cornard parkrun with 23:27 which would have been a PB if the course wasn’t short. Lynnette Garstang, Carl Oldford and Alison Goodwin also had great runs here, but sadly miss out on PB’s due to the short course.
Shirley Fowler did Gorleston parkrun in 23:36, she was 7th female and got a PB.
Horace Shuriah ran an incredible 50 miles on Saturday! This was in the Kent 50 Challenge. He finished in 27th place in 10:44:24!
On Sunday Alex Smith finished 2nd in the Quendon and Rickling 5K in 17:57!
