Many congratulations to Jo GASCOIGNE-OWENS for finishing 1st lady at the Hadrians Wall Half Marathon on Sunday 25th June. Not only did she comfortably win, but her time of 1.30.24 was a female course record in this really tough race. Jo was 6th overall in a field of nearly 340. Also well done to Nell GAIR who completed the route in 2.56.29.
Also on Sunday Melanie SMITH took part in the Welwyn 10k, an undulating race around lanes in leafy Hertfordshire. Mel finished in 1.09.18.
The day before Graham SIMPSON put in another superb performance in the hills as he prepares for the Chevy Chase. He travelled north of the border to take part in the 7.2k Eildon Hill Race. Graham was 3rd of the 91 finishers in 38.40.
Another Saturday, another win for Carole PAGE at the Druridge Bay Parkrun! Slightly slower than last week, a time of 21.34 was easily good enough to win the female race once again. 2nd female finisher was Angie EMBLETON in a time of 23.12, whilst Mel STEER was 1st female 45 and Tania CONWAY ran well on her course debut. For the men Richard JOHNSON was 2nd home in a brilliant course pb of 17.42. James WILLOUGHBY also ran a course best, 19.04, whilst Peter GREY was winner of the male 55 age group.
