Brueton parkrun:
With out men scattered round Chicago, Chester and Mordor Paul Benley led the team home at Brueton running 19:00 on the nose. He was followed by Danny Malone and Anthony Dutton who both also clocked 19’s… 19:17 and 19:58 to be precises. 

For the K&D women it was the now familiar Kerry Ann Thompson who took the honours. Her rapid improvements being consolidated with a superb 22:13. Louise Bell took the #2 spot with 23:11 and none other than Ann Spencer-Dowdeswell celebrated her recent HM pb by finishing third in 25:50.

It was a superb PB for Danny Malone who ran 19:17. Kerry Ann Thompson’s 22:13 equalled her PB from last week. Making it 8 weeks in a row she’s either PB’d or =’d her PB.

Arrow Valley parkrun:
A big congrats to Richard Dixon who took his first ever parkrun #1 tag.  Running 18:31 saw Dicko crowned Arrow Valley King for the week. Behind him Hala Atkin, Kevin Tomkinson and Ian Curtis (not the Joy Division one) made up a K&D Quartet.  Hala ran 25:18, Kevin clocked 25:34 and Ian notched up a 37:26.

Burgess parkrun:
Jack Bristow scorched round the fast and flat Burgess parkrun in 17:10. He finished 2nd overall and continued to nibble away at the 17 min barrier. It’s going to happen! Keep the faith JB! 

Bristow was joined at Burgess by the Quarmby’s by chance as Chris ran 28:23 and Jane stopped the clock at 29:31.

Ballincollig parkrun:
We like to drop in with friend of the club Riina Kuuselo who still lists K&D as her club. She scorched round in 19:42. Wonder if she fancies a regular scandi-uk commute for XC still?

Exmouth parkrun:
A late autumn Devon trip for Ainsley Wainwright who clocked 19:44.

WRRL: Rugby 10 and Done.

Kaput. Squelch. Bang. The door to the WRRL season is now closed for winter. 

Well done to the brave souls who managed the last stand – The Rugby 10. 

Congrats to Paul Williams who went to the wrong place, turned up a minute after everyone had started and worked his way up to 2nd K&D finisher. 

Full results of the WRRL will be up once calculated. There were plenty of excellent performances throughout the entire season. Hopefully we have a few category winners.  Continue reading

WRRL: Rugby 10 Mile… like Eminem’s 8 Mile but Longer

After months of racing it all came down to ten miles. Rugby’s 10 Miler. The last race of this seasons Warwickshire Road Race league. With a number of injuries scuppering several runners at the moment, added to the Autumn Half and Marathon season being upon us numbers were down slightly on our usual mass turn out. However there were still a number of very positive results.

The fleet-footed Joseph Read and Lorraine Hobbs led the men and women home. Joe broke the 60 minute mark which is always a sign of a great 10 mile run, while Lorraine ran a very impressive 77 minutes. Continue reading
