Winter 5k Time Trial Jan 2016 – Results

5K TIME TRIAL MON 11TH JAN 2016

We had 29 runners out on a night that was not as cold as first thought – fortunately for the late starters who had to wait up to 16 minutes. The runners included 3 new faces to this event – two of which joined the club that night. Was this before or after the event? and has any resigned yet? The two new members were Lisa Gibson who started somewhere in the middle of the pack, and David Hodkin who started towards the rear. The other new face was a relative new member Hannah Newman, who had the pleasure of starting near to the front. The first 4 over the line were Malcolm Taylor, still improving, in a run time of 25.32, followed 31 seconds later by Neil Marshall in a run time of23.03. Third was one of our new members Hannah Newman in a run time of 28.39, 6 seconds behind Neil.  Sorry Hannah but you may find yourself starting later on the next one. Fourth was Lucy Churm in a run time of 24.23, 14 seconds behind Hannah, but because she is coming back to full fitness and had the benefit of an earlier start, generously allocated the fourth prize to Alice Chandler who finished same time as Lucy with a run time of 24.23. Bringing up the rear on the night were Ian Brown, 35.06 and Matt Hooban-Sykes on his comeback, 29.54. The fastest lady on the night was Alice Murray-Gourlay with a run time of 20.23, picking up 11 places and finishing 15th. The fastest man was that man again, Steve Webb with a run time of 18.57. It could have been an interesting battle with Hal Roberts who had a run time of 19.22 and Steve just pipped him to the line by 25 seconds. Both runners picking up 12 and 10 places respectively. Many thanks to Keiran O’Brien and James Woodman for ensuring everyone got off in the right order and time, and (hopefully) recording the correct times and positions of the finishers. The first runner finished in a time of 34.02 and the last runner was 38.24. Taking out the first and last 2 runners the time difference between the 26 runners was 2 minutes 12 seconds. Not too bad for the handicaps but not perfect, especially if you finished lower down the field. Maybe next race? A summary of overall positions of all runners who have done at least 1 of the 4 races to date will be revealed shortly. Don’t forget there are some small prizes for the overall winners of the best 4 out of 6 races.

Cheers. Peter

Club Championship 2015

And so our Club Championship for 2015 has come to an end and the results are now public, congratulations go to Paul Newton, Helen Burgess and Patrick Nesden!

In the end we had 108 members gain points over the course of the year so thank you all for coming out to play through some horrible weather, lovely mud and hilly courses. It may not be some peoples preference, but oddly it has been my pleasure to doddle around with spreadsheets & the likes (geek yes) so it has been a fun year for me. Hopefully you’ve had some fun along the way too, I never realised how seriously people take the championship (which is by no means a bad thing – on the contrary, I’ve happily had discussion on the nitty gritty of it!).

By all means give me a shout if you have any queries or general interest (s.w.webb1@gmail.com)  or hold on to them & give your new championship co-ordinator (Malcolm Taylor) a test of his mettle in early January.

The full leaderboard for 2015 is here for your perusal, along with the individual results for each race in the season here.

The upcoming 2016 Club Championship Calendar is here, kicking off with the PECO on the 24th January.
