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.
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!
