Weekly Round-up 20 August

Apart from Parkrun it was a quiet week on the racing front with only 5 members competing. Ali Bisatt did the Hilly Helmet Challenge in Westbury on Wednesday night in a time of 34:23.The weekend saw Trevor Stow run the Bath Two Tunnels 50k ultra race as part of a relay pair in 4:51:07. A great time as this included 20km of underground running. Lucy Spring and Ray Tutton joined Trevor in Bath for the Two Tunnels Half Marathon which by all accounts was fairly hilly with spookily lit tunnels and not for the faint hearted! Sue Lewis went to the New Forest to compete in the middle distance triathlon finishing this tough event in 07:24:17.27 running forever members were at Longrun Meadow

Running Forever members were at Longrun Meadow parkrun this week with Chris Brown the first club member home in 19:27. parkrun tourists were Hannah Taunton who was the first lady home at Cardiff with a PB of 17:39 and mum Gill who also had a PB of 28:34, Plym Valley saw Claire Allison & Yvonne Loat, Andy Burgess was at Blandford, Richard Mackrory at Killerton, with Kate Mackenzie and Malcolm Hutchings soaking up the scenery at Dolgellau. Carole Foster was an international park runner at Claremont Waterfront in Florida with a faster than usual time after someone mentioned alligators!

Although they were not racing, nine of our bonkers ultra runners were busy entering the brutal 2018 Snowdonia Trail Marathon which ascends over 1685 metres. As I get out of breath running up Cotlake Hill this is clearly not the event for me!
