In the super-speedy category Trevor ‘The Pirate’ Poole and Peter Gould comes out on top, both winning their respective parkrun events at Buckingham and Ally Pally on Saturday 16 January. There wasn’t too much between them in time either. Trevor clocked 18.37, Peter – 18.28.
At Wycombe Rye Guy Johnson was home first in 24.15, followed by Tom Ayres – 28.58 and Evangelina Baker – 31.45. Sam Meldrum accompanied daughter Katie at the Gadebridge event, clocking 31.25.
Chiltern’s ultra heroes were Adrian Berry (of Chiltern Tri) and Jason Trimmer, who took part in the Country to Capital on Saturday 16 January. The event sees participants run 45 miles, along trails, roads and canal towpaths from Wendover to Little Venice in London. Adrian finished a fantastic 7th in 5.35.10 and Jason completed the event in 6.45.34. Jason heard this week that he has gained an entry for UTMB – Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc – so Saturday’s event was some great preparation for the August race.
