White Peaks Marathon:
Despite it being trails and hills Richard Dixon ran the White Peaks Marathon in a superb 3 hours 3 minutes. It bodes well for Dobby that he can crack out that kind of pace on the trails and puts him in a superb place for summer off the back of an 8 week programme. He’s earned a good nap.
Chester Half Marathon:
Nick Woolley put himself =2 with Chris Morgan on the K&D Half Marathon 2019 list with a super PB of 1:17:38. With a whole host of guys still to go for a fast half it’ll be an interesting end of year list.
Penny Taylor, Gail Partridge and Alicia Calvert took the short jaunt down to Worcester for their Half Marathon. They chased Neil Draycott round (who ran 1:41:54). We’ve told them about chasing all the boys before. Gail was closest to Neil, running 2:28:19, Lissy ran 2:29:19 and Penny Clocked 2:33:51. Sterling stuff from this week’s cover stars.
Down to the Wyre 10k
We support any race that is willing to Pun. Top work Down to the Wyre organisers. K&D salute you. Dynamic Duo, Kathy Bailey and Jude Mansfield took 1st and 2nd in their age group’s (Surely they’re both 21-25?) while Stephen Ray took 2nd in his (Over 65’s?).
Sorry Stephen! Jason Pitcher’s 48:33 saw him across the line first for K&D as he pipped Stephen (Male 55+) who ran 50:22. Kathy Bailey ran 53:23, Jude Mansfield recorded a 53:26 and Lynsey Drakeley finished in 1:12:48 and Samantha Edgington warmed up for KFR2019 with a 1:15:45.
*Copy, Paste* Gareth Wainwright ran 17:13 (of course he did). Darren John ran mid 18’s (18:32, of course he did). and Habib Farazmand picked up another PB of 18:34 after recently joining out Tue & Thurs group (of course he did).
Siobhan Cotter ran 22:28, Louise Bell ran 23:04 and Kate Marsh ran 25:14. At least the K&D women can be relied on for some variety!
Alan Marshall ran a PB of 24:38 (Thank you Marshall), while David John ran a course PB of 31:21.
Sherlock and Turner, everyone’s new favourite ITV detective show, ran 29:01 and 35:53 at Coventry parkrun. I hope they’re investigating Coventry’s crime of a Ring Road.
Pete Austin pitched up in Redditch to nip under 21 min (20:50).
Kingsbury Water parkrun:
Following his inaugral run at Brueton Simon Battson returned to his home territory of Kingsbury to run 24:13.
Steven Whatmore is searching for Sub-18 this summer. It’s a documentary that’ll no doubt feature at Cannes next yr. He’ll have to wait. His 18:05 just shy of his target. It’ll happen though.
Danny Malone ran 18:34 and found himself third at Bideford. BidiThird?
Kev Tomkinson and Alison Giblin continued their Tour de Midlands with a 27:03 and 29:55 at Bedworth parkrun.
KFR2019 Results to follow on Tues or whenever we can get the Results Gophers to stop crying.
