8 PBs, 16 SBs (7 improving on July times) and 4 'first timers' (FRs) were recorded amongst the 33 members who contested the Club Handicap, last evening, in dry (almost), but windy conditions. Chris Wilson (1st) continues to thwart the handicapper by going under 18 mins for the first time and knocking 27 secs off his PB. Louise Johnson (2nd), after a slightly disappointing July run, reduced her PB time by 31 secs, with Victoria Kirk (3rd) taking 39 secs from her PB. Paul Wallis (4th) and Ben Woods (6th) both bettered their PBs by 37 and 25 secs, respectively.
It was good to see Cass Brewer and Zoe Foster, who haven't competed since late 2010, and Jack Holland and Richard Goulder, since just over a year, returning to the fold. Danny Norman (7th), in a time of 17:21, was the fastest of 5 runners who ran sub 18 mins, and Libby Marchant (19th) was fastest Lady with 19:37.
My thanks to this month's helpers, Kate Hancock, Caroline Dawson, Neil Sunderland and Peter Tozer.
Handicap this evening. Weather slightly cooler than of late and possibly a little damp. Looking for a good turnout with some unsuspecting 'Monday Nighters' included. Please come along and assist if you don't intend to run.
If you haven't seen the July result on the Club notice board, I've attached it here, along with the Race Analysis.
The burgers have been bought, the sun will shine, the Welly will be wanged and we look forward to seeing a good turnout for tomorrows Captains BBQ at Horton Country Park.
For those who aren't sure where to go we'll be in the paddock by the car park close to the Equestrian Centre just off of Horton Lane, Epsom, click the link for a map -> here <-
Remember to bring your own salads, desserts and drink, the club will supply the meat and rolls!
May 2014 – Report and Result
34 runners, including 3 ‘first timers’, ran the final and deciding Handicap Race of the season. First across the line was Hannah Walsh in a PB time of 23:29, just 11secs ahead of Lizzie Wilson, who also ran a PB. Louise Johnstone (3rd) was just 2secs off her PB and 5 secs ahead of Sue Esslemont (4th) with an SB, and Greg Whiteman (5th) a further 5secs behind. There were also PBs for Victoria Kirk (7th), Steve Ramek (11th), Ben Woods (13th) and Peter May (18th), and SBs for Matthew Pritchard (19th) and John Bennett (32nd). First timers clocked the fastest times of the day, Risdon Weatherall, 17:47 for the men, and Lucy Chambers, 20:14, for the Ladies.
This annual five mile run, attracts an entry of some 500 runners, and is organised by the Claygate Flower and Village Show Society. The run starts (10:30 a.m.) and finishes at the Claygate recreation ground. The run which, apart from the final mile, is nearly all on footpaths on and around Arbrook Common. There is plenty of attractive countryside to admire with only moderate hills to be overcome. You can enter on-line via the Sport Systems Website for £10 or you can enter on the day for £12.
Just a reminder that Sunday 20th July is our annual Captains BBQ at Horton Country Park. The BBQ is to be fired up around 12 with food cooking soon after and the usual fun and games starting as soon as everyone feels they can run around and keep their food down.
We will be using the enclosed area again so unfortunately no dogs are allowed, but the family are welcome. This is always a great way to meet others from the club that you wouldn't usually run with and for everyone to complete on a level playing feild as the sack race always seems to see the underdog do well.
The club will be supplying the meat but if you want salads, desserts etc please bring your own, as well your drink. You might also want to bring along picnic blankets and/or folding chairs as picnic seating is minimal.
We look forward to seeing you all for another round of the very popular welly throwing competition.
With Nonsuch Relays in July and it being a five Wednesday month we will be changing the calendar slightly to ensure we can incorporate everything going on during the month as follows:
Wednesday 2nd July - Nonsuch Relays - Teams of 4 over a 1.8 mile course, starting at the Mansion House in Nonsuch Park at 7pm. There is no entry fee for this event as the club pays for this event but we need to know in advance who is coming so please post up on the forum post to let us know if you either:
Have a team of 4 you would like to enter
Would like to enter yourself only and be placed into a team
