Hello Race Report fans! I hope you have enjoyed a nice break over the last three weeks (I certainly have), and heartfelt congratulations to all those who have been racing. It’s a relatively short report this week to ease your way back in. Before we get embroiled in this week’s results, a belated congratulations to Christine Burroughs and Caroline Stephens who completed the Valencia Marathon in PB-style last weekend (3.29.58 and 3.52.05, respectively).
Well done to all our Harriers who braved the rain and the mud at yesterday’s Chiltern League at Teardrop Lakes in Milton Keynes. Watch out for report to come from Steve Perkin.
Race Report 3 - 4 November: parkrun, Beachy Head Marathon, Punk Panther ultra, the Marlow Half and more
Happy Sunday Race Report fans! I hope if you were enjoying any fireworks displays over the weekend that they went off with a bang and your race results were equally explosive. Before we get on to this week’s box of tricks, a hark back to last Saturday – 27 October – when Ben Hetherington successfully completed the challenging Beachy Head Marathon in a time of 3.50.26. Well done, Ben!
There were tricks and treats a-plenty this weekend from Harriers, with first place parkrun finishes for: Holly Henderson (also a PB at Black Park – 19.57); Susan Jarman (22.47 at South Shields); and Aran Davidson (17.37 at Marlow). There were all-time PBs for: Abbie and Stephen Henderson (20.14 and 23.34, respectively, at Black Park); Charlie de Sousa (23.59 at Rickmansworth); Freddie Emery (32.40 at Bickling); and Ethan Trimmer (23.46 at East Richmond, Australia). Thomas Emery did his first ever parkrun at Bickling (19.21), whilst there were course PBs for: Trevor Brawn (26.44 at Bournemouth); Matt Robins (20.22 at Lymington) and Rosie Davenport (28.28 at Wilmslow).
Race Report: Abingdon Marathon, the Great South Run, Half Marathon action and introducing 'The Chiltern Way'
Good evening, Race Report fans! I hope you have enjoyed the autumnal weather this weekend and managed to fit in some nice runs in the sun. Before we crack on with this week’s results, a couple of ‘late entries’ from last weekend: Rick Clark took part in Centurion’s Autumn 100 (mile) on 13 October, completing what sounds like a gruelling event in 23.00.58. Rashila Wanninayake toughed out tough, wet conditions to come home with a PB of 4.21.53 from the Yorkshire Marathon on 14 October.
Race Report 13 - 14 October: parkrun, Hot on the Trail, Manchester & Royal Parks Half Marathons and more
Good Evening Race Report fans, from a thoroughly soggy Amersham (albeit a lovely, dry sofa). Well done to anyone who went for a run today. You are a hero for even braving it out of the front door!
Before we get into the detail of this week’s results, a big shout out to everyone who took part in the first match of the 18-19 Chiltern Cross Country League yesterday. The Club had a fantastic turnout and some really impressive performances across the board. Keep watching the website for Steve Perkin’s report of the action.
Good Evening Race Report fans! I hope you enjoyed some sunny runs this weekend, just as I did.
Happy Shardeloes Day everyone! Before we get down to the hard graft of Race Report, a well-deserved congratulations goes to Race Director Matt ‘the medal’ Robins for pulling off yet another brilliant Shardeloes 10k today, complete with sunshine. Well done, Matt, and to all of the volunteers for creating such an enjoyable event.
Good Evening Race Report fans. I hope you have had a very enjoyable weekend. As ever, Chiltern Harriers AC athletes have been chalking up some great results at events across the country.
Chiltern Harriers certainly hit the ground running for ‘back to school’, with a number of events taking place over the first weekend of September. Some short and some (very) long. However, before we even get to September and this weekend, a mention is definitely due to Simon Beedell who completed the OCC (or the baby sister of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc) on Thursday 30 August. Simon tackled almost 35 miles and over 10,000(!) ft of elevation in 7.34.48.
