This slightly belated Bank Holiday race report brings a great range of results for Chiltern Harriers AC runners from across the locality.
August continues to be a quiet month for Chiltern Harriers AC athletes, with results in this week’s report coming entirely from parkrun events. Considering the heat we experienced on Saturday, I am sure athletes were pleased to be running early!
With the Summer holidays in full swing, the weekend of 15th – 16th August was a comparatively quiet one for race fixtures. Nonetheless, Chiltern Harriers AC still saw some great performances from its athletes.
Chiltern Harriers AC runners enjoyed some beautiful weather for racing 8th – 9th August.
It was very much a family affair for the parkrun at Black Park this week on Saturday 1st August. Team Baxter had some fantastic performances to its credit: Francesca (JW10) did her first parkrun in 23.48; brother Maximillian (JM10) got a new PB of 23.49; Gill (VW40-44) finished in 26.43 and George (VM45-49) – in 30.22 (his first parkrun). Mum and daughter team Rebecca (VW40-44) and Lesedi (JW10) Nkoane pushed each other home to finish their first parkrun in 27.31. Regular readers will recall that Lesedi won her race at the Junior Triathlon recently, showing that Chiltern Harriers AC has a real contender in-the-making! Ali Young (VW40-44) maintained her strong parkrun record at Black Park, finishing 13th with a time of 19.45. Also joining Ali and Teams Baxter and Nkoane were Scott Getley (VM40-44) – 21.51 and Trevor Brawn (VM65-59) – 25.16.
