It’s holiday season so apologies for the lack of results/news! Back in early August, Gary Sage took part in the 100k Dodentocht ‘March of the Dead’ with his Reservists Unit. Starting at 21.00 hrs with 24 hours to complete, either walking or jogging in army boots, uniform and backpack with A&D vest attached, Gary completed the event in a 14:25:00. What made it the more impressive is that torrential rain forced over 4500 participants to pull out (40%) and for Gary to admit that it was one of the toughest events he’s done, surely not one for the faint-hearted!
Find A Voice 5k was run on Sunday 10th August with 3 club members taking part. Dean Bracken was first home in a time of 18:50 followed by Amy Major in 32:57 (her first race) and Marion Oakley in 35:55!
Almost a week later on Friday 15th August, Chris Boyce and Anna Lisa Stiffel ran the Victoria Park Summer Series 5k; Chris finishing 4th male in a PB of 18:30 and Anna Lisa first lady also in a PB of 23:43. Great running!
To round things up, Steve Hickman took on the Isle of Wight half marathon last Sunday, a gruelling hilly course. Steve finished in a creditable time of 1:55:02!
