5k Winter Time Trial No.2 (November) – Results

Last nights time trial “attracted” 22 runners – 6 more than last month, and conditions were milder but a bit damp on the ground. We had 2 new faces – Giedrius Geisleris (hope the spelling is correct) making his first debut at the time trial and Dawn Henderson returning after a long break from running.. Also not appearing on the results for the last two years is Tony Shaw who seems to be coming back well from his injury. Another runner on her return from a long lay off due to a bad ankle injury is Hannah Newman. Last one from the sick bed (literally) is Catherine Barrett who bravely managed to get around the course but unfortunately was the last one home. Hopefully this is a one off for her. Another returnee after a break of over 12 months was Shevonne McLarnon. All not ideal for setting accurate handicaps but they seemed to work out reasonably okay. First over the line in a run time of 26.18 was Liz Walker with a pb for the course, closely followed 5 seconds later by Jacquie Elmer who had a run time of 25.53 another pb for the course. Coming home in third place 26 seconds later was Dave Wood yet another course pb, with a run time 26.34. Fastest man was Adam Moger with a run time of 20.36, just beating Simon Hands (pb) by 10 seconds. Fastest lady was Simone Solgado with a run time of 25.17, just 36 seconds in front of Jacquie. The route was the reverse option and only 2 runners out of the 7 who ran last month were quicker so no real evidence which is the quickest way around. There has been some requests for runners in the time trial to pick their preferred route option on the night which could be interesting. This may be tried in the next coming months !!! Thanks for all those for showing up and especially Jemma Roe for doing another excellent job in getting the runners away on time and collecting runners times. Click the link below for full results.
