Race report from High Wycombe 10k and half marathon

Well what a day it turned out to be for WRR with prizes in both distances so well done to all participators.

The routes were, shall we say, extremely hilly and that is being conservative.  Both races started at the same time and saw runners tackle on and off road terrain (this explains why I had difficulty following the route on google maps) and the hills encountered were something else.  I thought Adderbury was hilly with a 748 ft gain but the half today saw a 1165 ft gain.  Even the overall winner a Sri Lankan Olympian had commented it was demanding even though his time was an eye watering 1hr 13 mins ! Temperatures were slightly down on last weekend and luckily the sun was kept at bay so it wasn’t too uncomfortable (that’s my honest opinion but others may disagree).  With that said it was tough throughout but it will help in the long term on improving stamina for everyone. The finish was inside the football ground which was a lovely feature and probably the only flat section of both routes !

The race organisation was superb with easy parking, good facilities, loads of marshals and plenty of water stops. Once again the Grant and Stone sponsor goodie bag was superb plus a medal and running top so well worth the money.Must mention the Lock family who ran the Hornton 6 last night as a warm up for todays race………Hats off to you both. n a final positive note for Will Downey I have been asked (last night) to pass on the thanks for helping the runner at Adderbury last week!

Adderbury Half

Chris Colbeck – 1:34:20 (6th)
Will Downey – 1:42:51 (17th)
Bob Green 1:48:34 (30th)

I looked at this race and thought it looked ideal for a summer / training run.  Advertised as an on / off road course – well they weren’t kidding.  Last week i did a quick weather check and the temperatures were due to drop from the heat we have been having so all good, however this was all lies and it was an absolute scorcher.  Me and heat do not go together so my race plan was a training run rather than go full throttle.

3 of us took part in the half, myself, Will Downey and Chris Colbeck (much to Will’s pleasure).  The course was really good with plenty of water, plenty of marshalls and varied terrain.  Open fields, styles, farm gates, fields with horses and sheep, gravel tracks, road, trail routes, crop fields – boy we had it all.  Oh yes forgot to mention the hills and there were lots of those – some steep and some steeper.  Weather wise it was hot – there were times when we had cloud cover followed by times of intense sun and running in a fan oven !  Overall my race strategy paid off and i finished comfortably and steady.  Chris loved it and said he had a really good race.  Will did a good deed in helping a runner on 3 occasions offering water and assistance – he is still waiting for the thanks !

Definitely one to put in your diary for next year but maybe a touch cooler.

New Forest Half

Buscot 10k

Not too sure what the expectations were going to be on this course as trying to find a course map or any info online was very pretty much non existent, but when does that stop you for entering….  A warm sunny morning and a total of 9 WRR in attendance which was brilliant.  

The venue was stunning and the race organisers put on a good show however, It soon became apparent this was going to be a hillier course than anticipated going by the estate contours.  By all accounts this was a record number of runners so there was a slight delay in the start but everyone was in high spirits and a few minutes of waiting is not a problem.  Starting just outside Buscot house the start was downhill followed by a small loop uphill where you went back past the house and continued with a roller coaster road journey.  At the top of the hill stood a deer statue under a whalebone arch and to the right if you were lucky enough to catch it was a real one in the field (alas my eyes were not focused that direction so missed it)  After the statue we all turned right onto an anti clockwise route that took you through a wooded area with trail and gravel roads and a nice drop in temperature.  However this was short lived as you run out into the open across gravel, concrete and tarmac roads for a couple for miles before going back under the trees and reaching the statue and then repeating the loop (the loop felt weird because you always seemed to be running uphill with only a small amount of descending).  The third time of reaching the deer began the push for the finish line of just under 1 km.  All downhill to start and a steep climb back past the house before descending to the finish line.  

It did get rather warm out there so the tree covered areas were much needed and a lot cooler.  The course organizers put out plenty of water so you had a total of four opportunities to take some which was really good for a 10k route.  All our runners gave positive comments about the course so a big thumbs up and an embarrassing rendition of ‘happy birthday’ for Rachel in front of all the finishers. 

Great little event, tough course plenty of hills, off road, no chip timing, in fact no timing at all , just start here finish there.very scenic.

Sherborne 10k

A great race today at Sherborne.  Undulating and challenging I would say with a complete mixture of terrain – tarmac, gravel, woodland, grass and lots of hills.  A little bit longer than 10k due to an error by us runners (everyone followed the person in front). The organisers did apologise as the marshal was not at the junction plus no arrows so it put an extra 160 metres or so onto the distance which is not a problem as I would rather they were longer than shorter.  At the end of the day everyone did the same distance and we all had smiles (grimaces) at the end.  Fully recommend the Sherborne tea shop for refreshments after the race – very quirky but fantastic.

Ridgeway Relay

Awesome!!!

What a great day in fantastic conditions…if you happen to be a Solar Panel!!!

The temperatures were unrelenting at around 28-30 degrees and the sun beat down out of an azure blue sky…at one point I swear I saw Lawrence of Arabia on his camel coming towards me!

7.30 am saw Andy Church and Jade Hewlett start the 87 miles of the Ridgeway Relay. 11 and a half tough hours later, Rachel Stanley-Evans and Tony Burkett hauled ass into Marlborough to complete a heroic team effort from every single member of both teams.

So, huge thanks and well done to …Heather Smith, Suzanne Reeve, Nicola Henman, Sally Howard, Jenny Moore, Craig Gibbin, Joel Floyd, Lisa Holland, John McCormac, Anne Rouget, Darlene Burkett, Sam Upton, Nick Moglia, Matt Lock, Tony Lock, Fraser Howard, Toby Clark, Lindsey Smith, Nick Morley, Vicky Hopkins, Regina Lally and Chris Colbeck for suffering for their sport and their club in such wicked temperatures.

Thanks also go to Dave Rouget, Dan and Tamsin Wymer Steve and Lyn are in awe of all of you, and it is FANTASTIC to see our club out there battling away in such a prestigious event.

A great night was also had at the Griffin afterwards with Pizzas and chips aplenty.

Heres to next year when we hope to get 3 teams and  loads more runners and supporters out there for a fab day!!

Shakespeare Stratford Half Marathon

Nicola Fullerton             1.58.50 pb
Vicki Hopkins                2.01.21 pb
Regina Lally                    2:04:49

Up nice and early to prepare myself as Bag Lady for the race. Due to Sciatica problems I transferred my place to one of WRR latest recruits, Nic Fullerton. (Didn’t like doing that, especially as I was due to run with my daughter Vicki, never mind, I had to be sensible- I know usually difficult for me!!)

Regina stayed overnight at mine (only way I could guarantee she would be up in time). Vicki and Nic arrived at 6.50 for the exciting journey to Stratford.

Cloudy start, but as we neared Race headquarters we could feel it warming up, great for me, but not for the runners.

We arrived, queued to park, then queued for the toilets as you do. (A bit smelly, but needs must!)

Time to walk to the start, a lovely walk through the park, over the river, through a beautiful part of the town. Some fantastic old buildings and some that should not have been allowed.

Girls strip off, more layers for me if it cools down, nervous feeling all round. Amazing how many runners you hear telling others about their niggles and how they don’t expect to do a good time, the heat will not help either.

The hooter goes and they are off on the 13 1/2 miles in the sunshine.

I head off and managed to see the girls round the corner, I stayed in place just long enough to see Ali Maybrey run past, smiling as usual. I don’t like this supporting business, I want to run!

Time to shop, off to the market, some lovely stuff, but luckily for Steve’s bank account nothing I wanted. 

OK off to the finish for a coffee, what a great moment, church bells ringing, people chattering enjoying the sunshine. (Actually I am enjoying the supporting after all!)

An hour to go, exciting waiting for the girls, I hope they are having fun. Course record is about 1 hour 12 minutes, can they beat it?

Just for Regina there are hundreds of bananas to hand out to the finishers! (She does not do bananas!)

Winner finished in 1 hour 8 minutes 28 seconds.

Good crowd at the finish, commentator was boring and kept getting the time wrong.

Here comes Nic in 1.59.33, Vicki 2.01.25, Regina 2.04.48 and Ali 2.03.18. ( not confirmed yet)

All the girls looked great finishing, so jealous, tried to video Vicki, the grass looks good!

Still very warm, drinks and bananas to help.

We found Ali with her windup watch, we think there is a little man inside, it took ages to get her finish time showing.

Back to car, bra flashing to change tops, deodorant to improve the smell in the car.

Now what? Vicki says it’s pint time, I think they all deserve one, let’s find a good spot.

Coxs yard down by the river, good spot in the sunshine, do you get the theme? I like the sun!

Damn sat here and there is 5 minutes before the pub opens, gasping. They are open, yippee beer time, well done girls.

European Sprint Duathlon Championships – Soria, Spain

Graham Le Good 1:21:25 5th Overall & 3rd GBR VM65

Back in October last year, on a very wet and cold early Sunday morning, I qualified for the EU Duathlon (Run, Bike, Run) Sprint Championships as a member of the GBR Age Group team. The thought of Spain at the end on April seemed appealing, should be warm and sunny. We would take the car on the ferry to Santander and make a holiday of it, that was enough to convince Judith. Arriving in Spain and it was COLD, the forecast for the next few days up to race day was to continue cold (less than 5C) with showers. There was frost most mornings and driving to Soria through snow capped mountains was not quite what we had envisaged.

On race day is was a little warmer at the start time of 08:30 – maybe 6C or 8C, dry but with a strong wind.

The run was through a park area but leaving the town on the bike the wind and cold became apparent. The old boys wave was followed by a wave of ladies who caught us up on the bike. Don’t how some of the Spanish Ladies kept warm in minimalistic tri-suits and it looked very uncomfortable on the bike, no material let alone any padding on the seating area! Off the bike and onto the final run past my supporters, who looked frozen, over the finish line to finish 5th overall in my age category and 3rd GBR which means a qualification place for the same event next year in Ibiza where it must be warmer! Then it was time to relax, enjoy the scenery, the food and the wine!

White horse half marathon race report from Lisa Holland: Having not ran the White Horse before I found the facilities very good but a bit of a walk to the start. The course is on country roads, not much traffic but long flat and featureless. Today was the hottest day this year which made things very tough but organisers sorted out extra water breaks which was a relief. I felt great up to seven miles but found the heat very tough and made going from there to the end very difficult. Thank god for the extra water break at 11 miles. Great support at 6 miles from the Chairman, Lucy and our great photographer, Sharon. Crossed the the finish line knackered and a bit out of it. Thank you Witney Road Runners for all the support.

On a dry, sunny Saturday morning we lined up on the school field after being topped up with pre-race FREE tea and coffee………Mr F let me be in the lead for about 20 metres until he said that’s enough I’m off………………..and so he did. What followed was a lovely scenic 20 mile route with more than a few undulations thrown in, and some big whoppers through some lovely countryside and also on the Ridgeway.
At the finish you were greeted with water, juice, jaffa cakes, jelly beans and a long sleeve running top……………………..followed by a lovely warm shower and FREE hot food………..sausages beans and chips and rice pudding for afters, and tea and coffee…………….all this for £20….
Well done to Mr F, he has done it 8th overall and 1st MV50………..and as the only other WRR there I captured the moment on camera……….so give him an extra round of applause on Thursday as I will not be there this week.

GRUELLING GORING
Having not done a 10km race since last year and having not remembered to enter Bourton 10km due to senior moments, we decided that Goring 10km would be a nice little jaunt to get back into racing. After all, Goring is on the Thames so it must be nice and flat, I thought.
After we entered, people started making noises about hills and having encouraged Hannah “I hate f…ing hills” West to enter as well, we were well prepared for the verbal abuse when the race profile was revealed.
Anyway it was a warmish day and no rain so we could face anything. I wasn’t disappointed, the challenging hills gave us spectacular views and I was rewarded with lovely downhills. The course was interesting and varied, car free and well marshalled. The free flapjack, tea and banana at the finish were much appreciated. Even Hannah admitted she enjoyed the race, despite being overtaken by a camel! So the two old WRR ladies would like to recommend it. It’s a shame more WRR members were not there, but having so many races on the same day does mean the club is split.
There were 18 ladies in the Masters (60+) age category and we didn’t disgrace ourselves at 3rd and 9th. There was even a Grand Masters (70+) age category for both men and ladies, so we can’t give up yet, and we are now well prepared for next week’s “undulating” Cross Country.

SNOWDON MARATHON 2016

This Marathon brings down the curtain on British Summertime, and the tourist season in North Wales. Llanberis is packed with the running community running around the mountain, and tourists eager to walk or take the train to the summit of this popular peak.

The Marathon entries open at 00.01 on New Years Day, and this year was full in just 12 hours! Thats 2500 entries!

 

If you didn’t already realise, this is one of the toughest marathons around, not just because of the amount of climb involved, but because the weather can be so unpredictable. A cold, wet windy North Wales is a pretty inhospitable place, add to that the famous “Welsh Wall” at 22 miles, and you have a pretty tough challenge!!

The race has been around since 1982, and WRR have been represented every year since 1986.

This year we had 10 club members take on the challenge, with a good mixture of first timers, and returners who should know better!

This was Lyn Hopkins’ 13th Snowdon Marathon. For 7 of our team, this was their first.

The morning dawned wet, cool and very misty….surprised? No, neither were we! Tony Burkett had a really bad cold and likened it to “having a grease gun shoved up my dose”.

I took some supporters and saw the runners over Pen-Y-Pass at 5 miles. Everyone looked great at this stage. Nick Dalton was first over, with a group of 5 (Toby, Laura, Tony, Brian and Michael) hot on his heels. Then came Anne, followed by Lyn and Regina.

The course gets very congested in Beddgelert, roughly the half way stage, so I waited for the Llanberis Pass to reopen, then followed the route in reverse until the 18 mile mark, where we waited, music blaring from the car, to again see everyone past.

Tony, despite his heavy grease gun nose, looked terrific and had pulled away, opening up an 8 minute lead over Laura by 23 miles, as they entered the dreaded “Welsh Wall” final section. Only 13 minutes separated Laura and Toby, although this represented 270 runners in between them!

I didn’t see them at this stage, as I was dutifully supporting Lyn and Regina.

Once L&R had passed the 18 mile mark, we followed the route, cheering them every mile or so to 23 miles, when we left them to slog over the final hill. I then walked back up to 25 miles and witnessed the runners enjoying the dreaded, leg sapping final descent into Llanberis.

I have to say I am so full of admiration for every single one of these runners that meet the challenge head on, and finish this magnificent marathon.

I was particularly proud of the 10 runners wearing the Witney Colours.

A “Massive Respect” to every single one of you!!

The meal at The Heights restaurant was just brilliant with 25 Witney Roadrunners and supporters reliving the days experience. The banter was entertaining, Tony B won the prize for nearest his predicted time…just one minute out, and Lyn, Tony Burke from Alchester and Sharon Moore won the fiendishly difficult Welsh Quiz. Most enterprising approach goes to Madie Paterson, who disappeared with her quiz sheet only to be found in the bar with a group of Welsh people, picking their brains. Needless to say, it didn’t take long, and she didn’t win…Ha!

Hopefully we will be back again in force next year for the 35th running of The Snowdonia Marathon!

Race Report!

“Flat is boring” well it isn’t flat and certainly not boring. Forget what time you will do this is a great little event.(even if like me you don’t like hills or cross country.)
Really well organised with happy smiling marshals, some superb views, a great run through 3 km of woods and a few ? ups and downs! It had a good mixture of road and track and yes the school choir singing at 7 km!
Not to be missed and a definite for next year, if only they would move that killer hill at the end.

Henley 10km Report

Well won’t be doing this race again !……..
After 2 km a hill steeper than the Witney 10 and lasting for 1.5 miles! You know I love hills! And the run was clocked at 6.57 miles, I think the route was wrong at the end.
The race organiser allowed children of 6 and 7 to run in a 10 km race up the steepest hill on a hot day and a rubbish goody bag for £25.00  – Grumpy Chairman.

Six members of WRR headed off to the Forest of Dean on Sunday, five to do the trail half marathon and one to do the trail 5k. The half saw Rick Parsons dust off his racing shoes for the first time in six years and saw him come home in a creditable 1h40m08s. Tom Garrod was first WRR home and in the 5k Matthew Lock took victory in a time of 19m26s.

Oldbury Power 10 Miler

Sold as a ‘fast, flat road race’ starting and finishing at Oldbury Power Station…. Paul was keen to do a 10 mile race and throw in a power station it was a done deal.

Not too far from Witney, should have been an hour and 20 minutes’ drive but add 15 minutes if you follow sat nav and execute a last minute right turn only to find you are on a single track road for 4 miles…. still we did get a preview of some of the course…. which was indeed fast and flat on quiet rural        roads.

Nice friendly race, well-marshalled but no post-race memento or goodies…. only water at the finish (not even a bottle!) and the only food for sale was from a greasy burger-type van. Maybe some compensation was seeing a bronze medal from Rio as Sally Conway (judo) was presenting the prizes.

Guernsey Marathon

Tony Lock was 2nd V50 at the Guernsey Marathon today in a time of 3h12m55s.

The course runs along the coast of the island and is stunning in many places. Also the second half only has one small uphill. If you’re looking for a holiday and a marathon combo this is an excellent choice. There is also a two person half marathon relay or a five person relay option if you don’t fancy the full 26.2.

Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1 Trail Marathon 50km, result and report!

Will Downey                  5:13:13

So from June 2014 I enjoyed a good 18 months of running and decided in January this year I needed a challenge to test my physical limits. I narrowed it down to two choices – Boxing or running an ultra-marathon…it turns out you don’t get a T-shirt or a banana at the end of a boxing match so I decided to go for the ultra-Marathon instead. The choice – Salisbury 54321 50km trail marathon (32ish miles so not as hardcore as Mr Church’s 42 mile effort in June).

Training

From January to April the focus was getting ready for London Marathon so the training wasn’t anything different to what I was use too – The fun started after London. So 4 weeks after London I had Kent Marathon booked – 20 or 21 (I can’t remember) laps round a cycle track. So in the space of 4 weeks after London, I had to rest/recover, build up, taper and run another Marathon. I managed to convince Aukje to join me on the day for the marathon and we set off at 5am to run round in circles for over 3hrs. After I completed the marathon, I decided voluntarily to run an additional lap so I joined Aujke on her final lap of the race – My total at the end of the day was 27.4 miles. On a side note for those of you who think an outdoor cycle track is flat – it is not!

We now enter June for the next part of my master plan. 3 weeks to recover and build up again in preparation for the Ridgeway relay I managed to rope Mr Ferris into my training pan this time round and we set out to do leg 1 and leg 2 totaling 16 miles…I thought to myself – 16 miles is not really long enough for a weekend run at this point…So on the Saturday I set out to do the park run….And then I ran Cumnor 5k in the evening. Now I was ready for my run on the Ridgeway the next day. I have to say by the start of leg 2 I had nothing left – One of the hardest 6 miles I had to run to date. I got home and I didn’t know what to do with myself. First – I was hungry , tired and dirty – I contemplated eating a bacon sandwich in the shower with my eyes closed so I could deal with all 3 emotions at the same time but decided against it in the end.

I decided to adapt my training for a while and allow myself time to recover and focus more on my core training. I built up a routine now of running to the gym, spending an hour cross training in addition to 30 mins speedwork on the treadmill and then running back home. The run back home was particular exhausting climbing Curbridge road after a grueling session which was good as it help replicate how I will be on race day running on tired legs.

July comes and as much as I enjoyed my gym and treadmill routine I knew I had to get back outside and put in the miles. I found myself running twice a day on most Sundays (Race in the morning, get home and do my ironing and then go out again in the afternoon). I had two marathons under my belt already but I knew I had to hit another long run…The date was set – Sunday 17th July…But I couldn’t just be happy banging out another long run – I decided to run Hornton 6 on the Saturday evening. 6 miles done and in less then 12hrs time I was setting off for my final long run. Early start on the Sunday with Fantastic support on the day from Lucy Harris and Laura Davies who ran with me for the first half and then Toby Clarke, Bertie and Graham Ferris running with me for the second half – 27 miles ran ticked and the training complete (My time for this 27 mile training run was 10 minutes quicker then my 2014 Marathon race time #JustSaying)

I had now reached the peak of my training and the tapering could start. But this is me we are talking about and it wont be an easy taper. I still had a few “crazy” runs left in me and decided to get Toby involved for the next one. We drove to Botley and ran to Oxford Park Run / Ran the Park Run and then ran back to Botley – 13 miles with a good speed session in between..Deep down I knew Toby appreciated the training session even if his words and physical appearance said otherwise. Unfortunately Toby was away the second time I decided to do this run again but I understand he is back now and training for Snowdon so I’ll be dropping him an email shortly.

226 days into the year and my mileage count leading into the Ultra for the year to date was 1255 miles made up from 217 separate runs – My god I need to get a new hobby

Before we conclude the training section I would have to give a special mention for The hardest training day leading into the race which was Friday 5th August – Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace with the whole family…This was both physically and mentally tough – We walked a total of 7 miles on that day and it wasn’t only the kids running off – I had to contend with my dad (Who has no mobile phone) wondering off and doing his own thing as well. I was on my feet for total of 11hrs before we started to make our way to go back to the car park…But then the kids spot the archery section…I just needed to get home at this point so I used the old trick – “Sorry we have run out of money” but it was free!!! Free!! The only thing in the whole show which was free! Just with car park in sight and the nightmare ending I had to spend another half an hour waiting for them to get a bow and arrow and pray to god they didn’t fire it at the duck in the lake or the pug walking over the bridge. 7 miles, nearly 12hrs on my feet and stress levels through the roof…After this day I knew I could handle the Ultra.

Race

The bit you have all been waiting for – The race started at 9.30am…The build up and anticipation was nerve whacking especially as the weather looked as though it was going to be hot without a cloud in the sky – I knew it was going to be tough one. I set off to a good start, first mile completed in 7.30mins – Too fast but I am sure I can slow this down naturally throughout the rest of the race. 3 miles in and I was treated to a bit of downhill which was very welcomed at that point. Shortly after the generous downhill we were back on the trail with a bit of climb. It was only 5 miles in so I could handle it. As I conquered the hill I saw in the distance a dog walker – She had a little jack Russell puppy. This dog clocked me and started running towards me, tail wagging. No idea why but he was putting his heart and soul in getting to me – I thought with the effort he put in, ill give him a quick belly rub. But then no sooner had a come to me, he then spun around and ran back to his owner – Yep I had just been mugged off by a little dog and I went back to concentrating on the race and ignoring all future dogs, cows and any other animal I come across.

10 miles in and I was running a good average pace of just over 8 minutes per mile. I made a concerted effort to stop at every water station which was working so far. 14 miles in and still looking good, nearly at the half way point.

Unfortunately just after mile 15 disaster struck. Heatstroke took over, no sooner had I taking a cup of water I was throwing it back up. I stop, composed myself and yep threw up again. Not a good sign and from experience I knew I was in trouble. I pushed on with a run/walk strategy to try and get me to mile 20 – I figured if I can get to 20 miles, a gentle 10’ish miles to the finish will be alright and doable. I made it and pushed on but at this point mile 21-23 probably had the longest climb known to man – I didn’t care at this point and walked the majority of the climb.

I was in a dangerous position now, not being able to retain any water and I had actually stopped sweating so I was seriously dehydrated. I made the decision to pull out at the next drink station.

I approached the drink station and could see it was manned by a group of men in short sleeve leather jackets and tattoos. My initial thought – They must be bikers – as I got closer I could see a few Harley Davidsons but no car in sight – Yep I was correct.  I said I wanted to drop out and be taken back to the finish – They laughed and said they could put me on the handle bars. I didn’t laugh. I sat down, had a few zips of water and proceeded to throw up another 5/6 times. They then offered to call someone with a car to take me back.  I figured the fact the was no car here to begin with and that it would probably be 30 minutes for the car to get me and take me back as a sign to push on.

I managed to run in half mile burst and then walk to keep going. Every water station I got to I asked how much further – Hoping beyond hope that the advertised 50km race might actually be 49.2km or shorter. I got the final water stop at mile 30. He had his rubbish bag on a camping chair which got thrown off and decided to have a rest. He didn’t look impressed. I didn’t care.

The end was near – 2’ish miles. It’s not even a park run. I could do this. I got up and proceeded to run. My plan was not to stop and just get through….What felt like the longest 1.3 miles, the marshal said “Cross the road and turn left, you can see the finish, that’s how close you are” Get in there, just a little bit longer and my god she was not lying – I could see the finish.

I cross the line and got my medal and T-shirt. Let’s face it that’s what its all about. Aujke had ran the 30k on the day and put in a good effort…She asked me if I wanted any food – My response “Get me the biggest Mr Whippy Ice cream they have”.

So 50k Ultra done and a tick in the box. I was happy with the training but you can never account for the day – The heat destroyed me which on reflection probably held me back a good hour. I had to dig deep to finish and could have quite easily pulled out at any stage after 15 miles. I don’t actually like running in the heat or cross country so why on earth I decided to run 50K in the middle of August I don’t know. The course itself was good and not too challenge and I would recommend maybe the 10k or half marathon as a league race.

As for me now, I plan to basically eat everything in sight put my feet up for the rest of the day.

Boys Beating Cancer 5k today at the Newbury Showground
Very well organised event, very hot. Morgan (The Short one) started at the front and set off like a bolt of lighting leading both the 5k and 10k adult runners. This lasted roughly 0.2km at which point he was burnt out and exhausted.What endured next was me dragging round a tired, grumpy exhausted child for 4.98km whilst his brother happily plodded in front of him and winding him up. None the less we all finished together and earnt our medals and post race McDonald’s. In total the boys raised  £135 The is still time to sponsor us if anyone wants too.

Thames Path Night Time Half Marathon, Reading :

Mr Ferris Wins Race, Setting New Course Record

Saturday 2nd July saw a group of us (Graham F, John, Lisa, Jamie, Laura, Paul and Ieva) take on the Thames Path Night Time half. A small, low key event in its second year, this being the third time its run (they do it all again exactly the same in early September to). We were participating in the half which set off at 8pm but there is also a full marathon starting at 5 pm.  Race HQ is Wokingham Waterside Centre situated right on the river and the start/finish line is directly in front of the building where there is also a very well stocked water station offering a variety of drinks and sweets/crisps/biscuits. Both races are run within a 6 mile radius with you passing this station several times so there is no need for any additional water stations. After a small initial one mile loop, the  half sees you set off East along the river bank for about a mile and a half at which point you are turned around by Marshalls, you go back past the starting point and head West for a further mile and a half and again get turned back and head back to the start point and then you repeat the two loops again. (Double this if you are doing the marathon). The nice thing about this was we were able to see Graham coming the other way several times and cheer him on as he was running hard to hold on to his lead and he got to see us slackers chatting and laughing and plodding along. Once we knew Witney had it in the bag we were like nah, Gs got this….might as well enjoy the scenery (Sorry Graham). The course was pretty and scenic along the riverbank especially as after a fortnight of rain we had the bonus of glorious sunshine until it started to get dark (head torches were a requirement of the race but I don’t think any of us had to use them). There was a lot of encouragement along the way mainly from many fishermen and a group of very friendly reading river dwellers who had made a fire outside their very dodgy canal boat who were  all cheering,  and holding their special brew cans up to us as we passed. The Marshalls and race organisers were very friendly and it was incredibly well organised. The HQ offered showers and changing facilities and as much free tea, coffee, squash and biscuits both before and after the race as you wanted. Although there were no trophies or prizes (poor Mr F…) it has to be one of the biggest best medals I have had from a race. So…with his first win and a course record under his belt we left at 10.30pm to return home taking in a rather spectacular firework display on the journey. “Is that for me ? ” said Mr Ferris….who were we to tell him it was the finale of Henley Royal Regatta….. “Let him have his victory” said our chairman…. “Today an ostrich Graham”,he said……”tomorrow you’re just another feather duster”.  Such profound words from our chairman (classic McCormac !!!)

Compton 20 (Saturday 9th April) race Report – Mr Andy Church

So arrived at Compton to blue skies although a tad chilly, the HQ is a lovely little village school, where free tea, coffee and biscuits met you upon arrival…………….

Will then appeared and looked in serious race mode, I did my best to unease him saying the course was tough……….but he was unfazed, trail shoes were the order of the day, as heavy overnight rain had dumped out that way…

I offered Will a piece of granola before the start, told him it was good energy for the run……………..little did I know my plan backfired on me……….i thought I gave Will the ‘go slow’ granola but gave him the ‘Maria Sharapova ‘ one………..ha ha

So first time this year racing in just a WRR vest….well shorts, socks etc as well, as the gun went off I managed to be in front of Will for 5 metres, as we raced a lap of the school field then exited through a wood.by this time I was knackered already………

Come mile 5 I was going backwards on the hills, the mix up with the granola paying its price….. and totally running on gas from mile 14, but a wonderful course…………….

The course is a fantastic mix of trail, woods, open ploughed fields giving stunning views across the countryside, very well marshalled and plenty of snaks at the checkpoints…….oh and lots of hills………………………and more hills

The finish brought relief and a long sleeved top and a scolding shower…………….

Very funny was Will trying to get the long sleeve top at the end, the portly child, son of the race director insisted on trying to give Will a medium size, saying Will was not a small……. where Will on several times asked for a small………………….this exchange went on a few times until Will got his small, then had to use it after the shower as he had forgot his towel…….i on the other hand asked for a ‘fatboy’ Large and he handed it over straight away….

Every runner is then given a massive breakfast/ lunch of jacket potato, sausage, beans, quiche followed by rice pudding or fruit salad and any amount of tea and coffee………….

A fantastic run and hospitality from the race organisers

Manchester Marathon

Paul Ainslie        3hrs 19mins 53secs

The positives about this race are that it is a flat and fast course with PB potential and lots of support around most of the course but that was far outweighed by the chaos at the race village. The race village was situated at Old Trafford cricket ground, which Sharon and myself travelled to via the tram system (no problem there). The weather forecast was good with a temperature of 5˚ at the start (bit cool) and top temp of 11˚. But when we arrived some of the toilets were locked, this led to big queues. Runners arriving by car who had pre payed £10 to park at the venue were sent on a detour and some never found the car park and had to abandon their cars. But by far the worst problem was the baggage area with only 2 places to drop bags off for an expected 15000 runners a big queue soon formed. With the problems dropping off kit and parking cars there were a number of runners who started the race over 30 mins late. During the race the mile markers were not always easy to see and at mile 22 we had 2 x 22mile markers about half a mile apart. Not sure of overall distance, as I measured the course as 26.52 on my Garmin. At the finish there were massive queues at the baggage collection, with some runners having to wait 3 hours to get their bags back, luckily the sun was out, but not what you want at the end of a marathon.

Well done Paul, that’s a London 2017 qualifying time by 7 secs!!!

South Downs Way – 50 miles

Ben Lonsdale  10 hr 23 min

I had another crack at the South Downs Way 50 mile (50 miles, 5700 ft elevation) yesterday – after a 6-month all expenses paid trip to sandier climes, training has been inconsistent to say the least and I wasn’t mega confident of a strong finish. Unlike previous years though, I managed to stay at a sensible pace from the start – sticking to a minute a mile slower for the first 5 miles, particularly on the downhills made a world of difference later on. I came through the aid station at 27 miles having set a marathon-distance PB (4:51.54) and was still feeling good (and still running instead of power hiking) at mile 33. Some interesting pain around my patella on the later descents slowed me down, and I got through a whole tub of vaseline trying to avoid any longterm damage to a few sensitive areas but racing sensibly instead of going out hard and holding on definitely paid off, and I was still pretty cheerful crossing the line in Eastbourne.

The first male came in in 6h35 (at an average pace faster than I can run 10k on the flat), and the first lady in 7h40 – I was 192nd of 377 starters, finishing in 10h23 (a PB by about 42 minutes for the distance so quietly pleased). If anyone fancies a go next year, details are here: http://www.centurionrunning.com
