(Belated) Frome Half Marathon, parkruns, Windsor Great Park 10k, Down Tow, Up Flow Half & Cotswold 24 Hour Relay - Weekend Race Report
I’m going to start this week’s report with a short apology and a big congratulations to Andy Hickman, who has some excellent recent results to his name and which were missed from previous reports. Andy took part in the Standard Chartered Great City 5k Race on 9th July, clocking an excellent time of 18.59 (an especially impressive result if you consider that due to the tube strike Andy had already run a fair part of his commute that day in any case!). Last weekend on 19th July Andy finished 27th and 6th in his age category in the Frome Half Marathon, with a time of 1.27.51.
The Southern Inter Counties Under 17 Track and Field Championships were hosted by Buckinghamshire at Little Marlow on Sunday.
