Tissington Trail Half Marathon:
The annual pilgrimage. En Masse some of K&D’s finest now routinely spend their end of summer days in Derbyshire. Like some East Midlands Best Exotic Marigold Half Marathon.
Ann Spencer delivered a fine PB performance on Saturday. But it was sibling teamwork that had Isabel & John Collins leading the men and women for K&D home. A great day for the Collins’ as Isabel, John and Alice all took 3 of the top 4 K&D led spots (Alice recently moved to Watford but as a Collins she’s always K&D of course!). Their dad Nigel also rounded out the Collins Saturday with a super 1:59:51. His first sub-2 Half. 27 K&D ran the half on the Saturday.

|00:35:43||Jo||Tork||Knowle & Dorridge|
|00:37:46||Marie||Howarth||Knowle & Dorridge|
Tissington Half Sunday:
The only K&D representative on Sunday, Flick Sharp left a scorching trail behind her as she ran an excellent 1:30:19. Only just outside the 1:30 London Marathon Women’s Championship cut-off. Will we see two Sharps in the Championship pen soon?

Robin Hood Half:
Big Dave Carbutt ran a superb 1:27:20 at Nottingham’s Robin Hood Half. With a tough first 5k uphill thats an excellent time for Carbutt. Darren’s lung issues kept him to a training run; wheezing round in 1:37. Kate Marsh was first K&D woman, just pipping Liz Williams 2:03 to 2:04.
As he warms up for Chicago Marathon Gareth Wainwright put down a superb 16:51 to build his confidence before heading stateside. Watch out Mo! Newbie Nick Wolley put the cat among the puddings with a 17:27 on his first Brueton outing, whilst Richard ‘Tricky Dicky’ Dixon ran 18:28 to keep the young whippersnappers honest.
Mary Heald battled her lesser half (well, he is a Centurion) Peter to a 20:44 clocking. mary was first woman and most importantly claims Heald House-hold honours. Newbie, and 2nd Wolley was Jessica who clocked 21:11 and left Women’s Captain Rosie rubbing her hands in glee at the additions of Jessica and Kerry Ann Thompson who herself ran 22:13.
Also rubbing his hands, and not just because it was cold, was Gareth Lloyd who PB’d in 27:35. Kerry Ann Thompson’s 22:13 was her 7th PB in a row! Ridiculous form!
Novak said it was fast and flat, and his time backed it up as Chris Morgan ran a superb 17:11.
Cannon Hill parkrun:
Johnny Bellman ran a superb 18:44 at Cannon Hill. Equalling his all-time PB.
23:45 for Kevin Tomkinson on Saturday. Thats a PB on event 321!
