Well done to all runners who took part in London Marathon*. We had a big club showing with 27 finishers and many more members lining the route in support. Our runners suffered the hot conditions and still came away with great results.
Results have been added below. If anyone if found to be missing please let us know.
Seven members competed in the Southern Cross Country Championships held this year at Stanmer Park in Brighton. The recent heavy rain coupled with light drizzle and a keen wind made for testing conditions over a course already churned up by 8 junior races prior to the senior events.
Thank you to everyone that attended today’s mob match between 26.2 Road Runners and The Stragglers.
Including all walkers and runners the final counts were 127 for The Stragglers vs 183 for 26.2 Road Runners. This means that 26.2 take the all important mob prize!
After some extra time needed to calculate the results it was found that The Stragglers had a clear lead in the match competition. They won this with 5382 points to 9701 (lowest wins) so were a long way ahead.
Our individual winners were Oliver Garner (Stragglers) taking the overall win ahead of Chris Wilson (26.2 RRC) in second. First junior male was Charlie Jerrey (Stragglers), first lady Maryka Senema (26.2 RRC) and first junior lady Laura Howley (Stragglers). Well done all.
Result are available online. Unfortunately there was some confusion on the finish line with runners and walkers so times may not be correct for everyone.
And so it ends for another year although the celebrations are only just beginning. As far as we are aware we had 17 starters and 17 finishers and every single one of them did the club and themselves proud.
Well done everyone and top marks to what looked like an amazing support crew out and about in London today!
The final standings as per the London Marathon Results App are as follows, please do let us know if we have missed someone or have a time wrong.
Despite our club name we are not solely a club of marathon runners, however at this time of the year we find many members taking up the 26.2 mile challenge. Below are just some of the outstanding performances seen in recent weeks.
If your results are missing, please do let us know and they will be added.
Remember there will be a celebration of the achievements of all our runners at Surbiton Racket and Fitness club at 6pm on 23rd April.
Did you manage to complete the Epsom double this weekend? With a men’s XC fixture on Saturday (hosted by us) and a Grand Prix event and 10 mile club championship on Sunday at Epsom 10 our members spent a lot of time on the downs this weekend. Well done to anyone who managed to run/volunteer on Saturday and then run on Sunday to complete the double. By my reckoning we had 16 members who completed the double.
Our hosting of the cross country fixture went extremely well and we have received excellent feedback on the clearly marked course, friendly marshals and prompt/accurate results. Thank you to all for helping make this a success and especially to Moustafa Fawzy and Maria Cenalmor for their organisational efforts.
In running terms, our team finished a strong 5th in division 3 with Chris Rawcliffe first home for the club. Full race results are available online at: Surrey League and club results are listed below.
On Sunday, 22 members took part in Epsom 10. This was the 10 mile club championship which was won by Ryan Lambrix for the men and Kirstie Mitchell for the ladies. Full results attached and club results are below.
Away from Epsom, Ann Bath was in Glasgow competing in the Masters Cross Country. Despite running in a different country to the rest of us, she still managed to provide ample supplies of cake to the cross country in Epsom. As ever, we are in awe!
Even further afield, Geoff Tookey, took part in Athens marathon. Finishing in a very impressive 3:28:32 we hope he had better weather in Greece than we did in Epsom.
Once again, well done to all members wherever you were running this weekend!
Surbiton's friendly running club. Open to runners of all standards, fast or slow. We participate in local races of all distances.
