A reasonably short Race Report this week, fans, but I would prompt you to take a look back at last week’s, which has now been updated with the full Harriers results from last week’s Burnham Beeches 10k and Half Marathon. The headline however is that Chiltern Harriers athletes took home the titles in both the 10k and the Half, with Aran Davidson winning the Half in a PB time of 1.17.06 and Sam Reed wining the 10k in 37.50.
Good Evening, Race Report fans! I hope you have just enjoyed watching Laura Muir and Laura Weightman as much as I have J
A short report for you this week. We’ll start with parkrun results from yesterday, Saturday 11 August.
Good Evening Race Report fans. I hope you have had a fabulous weekend.
It’s a 5k-sort-of-week for Race Report. Fabian Downs was victorious at the Waddesdon 5k on Wednesday 18 July, in a great time of 15.47 on the Waddesdon hills.
Whilst football may not have managed to come all the way home this time around, Chiltern Harriers AC continued to bring home fabulous performances over the weekend.
An impressive number of Harriers were representing the county at the English National Schools Track & Field Championships in Birmingham on 13 and 14 July. Lily Holt equalled her outdoor high jump PB to come 6thoverall in the Intermediate Girls’ competition and Cameron Reid was 5thin Intermediate Boys’ 800m in a time of 1.57.23. There were also great performances from Angus Williams, Orla Williams, Alex Aldred, Joe Eggleton, James Spicer and Robyn Watkins. Look out for full reporting from Steve Perkin.
It’s Coming Home, Race Report fans! And Chiltern Harriers AC athletes have certainly been bringing home some brilliant runs 7 -8 July.
Kicking things off in style on 7 July, there were parkrun debutants out alongside a centurion at Wycombe Rye. Marea Logan and Savarnah Pandya both completed their first ever parkruns (22.20 and 25.16, respectively), whilst Mike ‘Tiny’ Turney completed parkrun number 100 in a speedy 18.59. There was a course PB for Oliver Webb (24.34, Aylesbury) and an equalled course PB for Luke Martin (19.46, Rickmansworth). Finally, the combined powers of father and son George and Max Baxter earned overall PBs at Rickmansworth. Max came home in a rather rapid 19.12, George in 24.55. Well done all!
Good evening, Race Report fans! I hope you have enjoyed the weekend. We’ll kick things off (as per tradition) by harking back to last week’s racing. At the time of publication the results of the Thame 10k were not available, but they are now. Congratulations are due first of all to Patrick Ahern, who was first V60 in a time of 42.26. Joining Patrick (and earning themselves an extremely fetching bright pink t-shirt) were: Mike ‘Tiny’ Turney – 38.25; Nathan Taylor – 38.50; Alan Hornibrook – 42.35 and Ian Chapman – 46.54. Well done, guys!
Harriers have certainly been making the most of long, sunny Summer days to fit in some hot performances this weekend. However, before we talk about the last two days, we’ll return to a few of last weekend’s events.
Your humble Race Repoter is – she won’t lie – feeling a little jaded today after a fabulous evening at the Club Social & Awards Evening. Before going any further, I would like to extend a MASSIVE thank you to those who made last night possible, namely:
… as well as the Social Sub-committee, who have been working so hard to bring everything together and to make sure everything ran smoothly on the night. In no particular order:
Good evening, Race Report fans. As a number of results for local events (the Chiltern Chase, Royal Windsor 10km Trail Run) are still pending, it is going to be something of a picture special this evening.
There were Harriers taking part in events that were as varied as the weather this weekend, and performances that were equally hot! We’ll kick things off with a late entry from Tamsin Finch (to clarify: I was late in reporting, not Tamsin in entering.) Tamsin completed her 10th marathon on Thursday 17th May, and she didn’t do it by halves, electing to take in the undulating course of the Wendover Challenge. The event saw runners run as many laps as they could of a course in Wendover Woods, over 6 hours. Tamsin ran 26.2 miles in 5.21.42. Well done!
