And before I forget: Dave Williams sped his way round the Last Friday of the Month 5k in Hyde Park in 19.15.
On Sunday 2 April Terror of the Track Andrew Stewart was in action, racing the mile (5.48) and 400m (1.10). Neither, he says, are recommended. Results from Run Fest at Lee Valley are not available, but sources suggest that both David Holmes and Club speed merchant Fabian Downes were competing in the half marathon event.
And finally, in Manchester Marathon news: Team Chiltern Harriers (aka Pip Harris and Nat Baker) completed the Marathon relay in 4.09.40; Tom Powell was within fractions of his marathon PB (set in London last year), with a time of 3.18.07 and David Breingan was hot on his heels in 3.18.54. Ian Lawson clocked a time of 3.21.00. Coming in under four hours were the combined forces of Matts Channer and Robins (3.45.05 and 3.54.40, respectively), as well as Tim Dawson and Laura Hayers (3.54.40), who both completed their first ever marathons today. Sponsor them by clicking here (Laura) and here (Tim). Scott Getley came home in 4.17.09 and Matt Lawrence battled his way through a tough second half to finish in 4.39.04. Well done, everyone!
