What a great turn out for the 2016 Nonsuch Relays, not only did we turn out a very impressive 11 teams in a record field of 99 teams but our top team on the night consiting of Alastair, Joe C, Anthony and Danny finished 7th overall in a time of 41:09. Our first ladies team finished as 3rd ladies team overall (5th if you include the 2 junior ladies teams) in a very respectbale time of 49:36
The other impressive thing about last night was the fact that with the exception of one person who had an unexpected motoring emergency and another with a child sickness due to his mothers driving in her rush to get there on time (or so I am led to believe) everyone arrived on time and we were able to get every team sorted before the race started which was great.

If you want to relive the torture of the club mile, the start/finish videos are online. You don’t get to see yourself run the whole thing but you will see the pain growing on each of the four laps. You may also find this useful if you want to check your pacing over the four laps.
Despite threatening rain the weather held off to give dry but slightly blustery conditions for this year’s club mile championship. A strong field of 50 runners attended, running in our two waves.
The first wave was lead home by Brian Merritt for the men and Andrea Bennett for the ladies. With a split between the two races set at a 7 minute mile we had 4 runners beat the dividing time.
In the second wave we saw our first past the post mile champions crowned as Anthony Whelan and Libby Marchant. Age graded results will follow soon.
To finish the evening we had a kids race with Charlotte and Zoe Pritchard and Otter Ley all completing a lap of the track. After their support to us on our runs we were all happy to cheer them round to fine performances.
On Wednesday 1st June 2016 we will be holding the club mile championship at Kingsmeadow Athletics Track. Please be at the track and warming up ready to run at 7:30pm.
The cost of participating is £3.65 which is payable at the fitness centre main reception on the night.
The race will be run in two waves. One wave will be at a faster pace and another slower. It is expected that the split between the two waves will be at around 7 mins/mile. You can run in either wave.
To get an idea for how many people will be in each wave, and where the split will come, please pre-register by filling in our google spreadsheet. It is easier to do so using a laptop or PC rather than a mobile device (unless you have the Google Sheets app already installed).

This weekend saw representation from club members in two marathons, Hamburg and Brighton. There were some great performances over in Germany with all four runners achieving PBs (first sub-4 for Andrea Bennett and Ellen Lambrix) and on the South coast there were big PBs too for Kirstie Mitchell and Dan Hookey (30 mins).
We look forward to more great marathon performances next week at London.
