K&D were out in force at the two-lap Kenilworth Half on Sunday as the sun shone and our runners sped round the new route. A fast first couple of kilometers took the runners through Kenilworth Castle and onto two rolling main loops. Super fast times were ran through the field with Chris Sharp and Rachel Gifford conducting the Men & Women’s teams from the front.
K&D put 7 runners in the top-35 as the men swamped the field between 73 and 82 minutes. First three were Chris Sharp (1:13:38), Rob Michaelson-Yeates (1:14:47) and Gareth Wainwright (1:17:43). For the Women Rachel Gifford’s run (1:24:05) led the way as Amanda O’Leary finished impresively (1:33:19) and Jane Hunt clocked a superb 1:44:09.
Graeme Edwards ran himself into the Ambulance in pursuit of a PB. His own Breaking Two saw him run 1:57:34 and then promptly faint. That’s commitment to the cause. Greg Turner finally broke 90 minutes – a 1:28:25 taking him sailing under. Kerry Thompson continued her superb comeback from injury with a 1:46:31. Katie Price and Linda Whitehead showed superb team-work to conquer the last mile in 2:09:01 and 2:10:33.
