Great North Run

Helen Weeden made the long journey up to Newcastle to join over 57,000 other runners in the Great North Run. Run in hot conditions along the course from Newcastle to South Shields, Helen had a strong run and completed the popular half marathon in a time of 2:11:39.

Gill Pragnell made a welcome return to racing on Sunday as she tackled the very hilly Eridge 10 mile trail race. Run in Eridge Park near Tunbridge Wells, Gill completed a difficult one lap course that is run on grass and very steep woodland trails. She finished 7th in her age category in an impressive time of 1:33:53.

Last Friday also saw two club members run the last race in the Rye 5k Summer Series. Jon Wells claimed 3rd place  as he continued his recent good form by running a time of 18:50. This was enough for Jon to finish 2nd in the overall Summer series. Mark Attenborough ran strongly to finish the race in 20:25 and 9th place.
