Race Round-up

A fairly quiet weekend on the racing front, Saturday and Sunday last. Dylan Grimes was spotted running 19:11 at Richmond Parkrun; just 12 seconds outside his PB. Equally Raelene Rawlings was only 23 seconds outside her PB at the same run. At the other end of the running spectrum Meg Heaslop’s heroics at the London Ultra should be recorded. She was running with a broken wrist yet still managed to get to 40km and was heading for 4th ladies place, before having to pull out; well done, Meg. Meanwhile Paul Cheetham and Pascal Evans ran Bramley 20 (unfortunately David Cornock had to pull out due to injury) in 2:02:15 and 2:03:15 to place 3rd & 4th V40. Paul got a sweatshop voucher and a salver; Pascal got nothing, but he seemed happy enough to find a Mars bar in the Goodie Bag.


This weekend we have the Handicap Race to look forward to on Saturday and a number of club members are doing the Heartbreak Half, Liam Whelan is even doing two Heartbreak Halves back to back. Good luck to all.
