Stratford Half Marathon: A sizzling Stratford played host to hot K&D performances on Sunday. Its was a PB Three, tumbles, top-10 finishes and great running through the countryside.
Darren John finished 7th overall, a PB attempt nixed by 8 miles on his own. Rosie Marsh took a superb gambowl at a water station after another runner tripped her. She still smashed her PB, only just missing out on breaking 1:30.

Cannon Hill parkrun:
Doing the PB double this weekend was Kate Marsh who clocked a superb 23:13 to warm up for her 1:50:02 HM PB. Bosh. Darren John ran 17:17 too at Cannon Hill.
Over in the Black Country we find Phil Wood who ran 22:35. Clearly the smog and soot in the air didn’t slow him down. 😀
Wormwood Scrubs parkrun:
*Insert obvious prison joke here*. Martin Hancock ran 23:37 at Wormwood Scrubs parkrun. He’ll be back at club in 12-25 years for crimes against humour.

Johnny Bellman ran a superb 18:37 to take 2nd place overall at Northwich.
