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).
And last, but certainly not least, Tom Powell completed the Ridgeway Challenge 86 mile event 25 – 26 August. Starting at 1200 on Saturday, Tom covered the length of the Ridgeway long distance footpath in 20 hours and 15 mins, finishing in an awesome 25thposition. Well done, Tom. Just… well done.
DON’T FORGET: Tuesday Seniors’ training will start at 1900 throughout September. Meeting place remains Chiltern Hills Academy.
