Good evening, Race Report fans! We’ve got quite a short report for you today - a tasty appetiser to Steve’s commentary from yesterday’s second Chiltern League match. Keep watching this space!
Remember, remember the 5th November
Gunpowder, treason and… jogs?
Chiltern Harriers AC runners put in some absolutely storming performances around the hills of Marlow in the Marlow Seven and Half. In the Half Marathon, Aran Davidson earned himself a PB (despite the tough course) of 1.23.11 and 10th place overall.
This Halloween weekend was another great one for the club, with members representing Harriers far and wide.
Storm Brian proved no match for Harriers this weekend, with a number of personal bests to go round.
Kate Loach tackled the humid Venice marathon, taking in no less than 14 bridges to finish in a fantastic time of 3:37; coming third in her age category. Well done Kate!
A busy autumnal weekend for Harriers this weekend! Enjoy the first Race Report from brand new reporter Rosemary Davenport!
Matt Channer, Matt Robins and Katie Royals took part in a veritable fiesta of running on the south coast, as part of Bournemouth running festival. Not content to compete in just one event, Matt R ran the 5k (21.36) and 10k (43.52) on Saturday followed by the half marathon on Sunday, completing this in 1.45.05. And all after doing parkrun on Saturday morning! Matt C completed the 5k in 22.44 and the full marathon in 4.06.48, with Katie finishing the half in 2.04.13. Well done guys!
Good afternoon everyone! 1st October seems to have been the day for 10k running in the Chilterns, with loads of local races taking place on Sunday 1 October.
Before we crack on with the Shardeloes 10k report and our usual weekly parkrun fix, a quick well done to the Trimmers! Jason and Carolynn completed the fast, flat and beautiful Sydney Marathon today in 2.56 and 3.53, continuing to do Chiltern Harriers proud down under. Awesome running guys! (We miss you….)
Race Report 2 - 3 September: parkrun, Maverick, Rat Race, Maidenhead Half, Bovingdon 10k and Stragglers Marathon Relay
After a few quieter weeks of Summer running, the first weekend in September was a busy one for Chiltern Harriers, with club members taking part in a real variety of events right across the country.
Race Report loves a good Bank Holiday: all that time for running! Hopefully you have been making the most of the lovely weather wherever you are (and by the looks of parkrun results, you have been all over!).
Firstly, a short apology and late mention for the Bearbrook 10k, which took place on 6 August. There were some great results for Chiltern Harriers, including 5th place team in the men’s competition; first lady for Mairead O’Rourke; and second in age category for Kate Loach. See the full results here.
Good evening athletics fans! Race Report comes live to you from the sofa – ankle on ice after a less-than-fun long run and TV coverage of day 10 of the IAAF World Championships.
A quick note about a result from last week. On 5 August our obstacle course racer extraordinaire Susan Jarman was back in action for third year in a row in the Total Warrior 10k in the Lake District, finishing 5th in her category and 14th female.
