K&D Ladies spiked up at Aldersley Stadium in Wolverhampton on Saturday 14th January.
Flick Sharp finished an impressive 20th in 26:29. Consistency and speed have been on show over and over from Flick this season. Emma Donnelly put in a very solid 28:56 run to finish 50th. Elaine Callinan was third home in 30:45, Jude Mansfield ran 32:03 while Hala Atkin finished in 33:22.
With two runners in the top 50 and our other ladies all within three minutes of each other there were some excellent results and strong consistency throughout the team.

After two races we K&D men found ourselves in 13th place (A team) and 7th place (B team). With 14th-16th places getting relegated at the end of the season there was no doubt it was all to play for as about 20 of us headed to Coundon Park in Coventry for race 3 of 4. The course was fairly flat and a bit muddy in places but generally nothing too challenging to fear.

Snow and Ice caused a whole lot of chaos up and down the country at parkrun this weekend. Times are all over the shop so please excuse times being avoided in the following write up.
First home for K&D at Brueton was Jane Evans. Behind Jane was Ian Naisbitt, Stephen Ray and John Garside. With Jane Evans leading the team home Sarah Cattell was next K&D lady across the line followed by Rachel Aston.
Times had to be adjusted by about 6% to account for the short course. No PB's allowed. Life is a harsh mistress sometimes.
Monica Green was a very respectable 4th Female at Ormeau parkrun. She ran 20:44 in South Belfast.
Before heading off to be Chief Cheerleader for the Gents at XC Richard Dixon continued on the comeback trail with a 19:03. Not bad. Not Bad at all.
XC updates will follow over the next day or so.

Annual General Meeting; April 5th
It is vital that we get a big turnout as possible.
We are a club of 260 members so we need to ensure that you views are represented, it will take place after the normal club run so please do make every effort to attend.
We are also looking for new committee members including chairperson so please do consider whether you would be able to help; I have really enjoyed my two year stint and with an active committee, such as we have, the work load isn’t high. If you would like to discuss then please drop me (Jonathan) a note.
Alternatively, if you know someone that may be interested then also let me know and I can contact them!Click to Read More...
