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.

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.
The August Bank Holiday weekend saw Harriers the length and breadth of the country taking part in parkrun events on Saturday 25 August.
There were first places for Nick Hughes at Cassiobury Park (16.39); Tom Dixon at Mount Edgecumbe in Cornwall (19.40) and Frankie Baxter at Weymouth (20.07). In Westport, Ireland training continued to pay dividends for Catherine Staunton, who was rewarded with an all-time parkrun PB of 23.36. Out of 233 parkruns in total, I think that is quite something! And there were a number of course PBs: Paul Horwood (20.52 at Black Park); Angela Hughes (26.38 at Ricky); John Webber (24.12 at Henley); Matthew Webb (27.31 at Aylesbury) and Doug King (28.08 at Tring).
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.
