A wet and windy Sunday Morning did not deter our runners. The conditions were what some would describe as ‘character building’.
Some braved the soggy conditions and completed the City of Lincoln 10K. First male back for the club was Paul Jackson in 37:14, followed by Luke Haynes, Ed Crawford, Garrath Ellershaw, Mark Haynes, Dave Kenyon, Jeff Shelton and Fran Stimson. First lady back was Emmajean Hearn with an impressive time of 56:36. Our other runners were Jimmy Hearn, Jenna Mullenger, Robin Harrison, Sarah Fiddies, Adam Patrick, Steph Scott, Dawn Sykes, Michael Moody, Sarah and Shawn Thomas, Julie Goodwin, Sophie Poole, Roenel Kenyon, Steve Collins and Natasha Haynes. Gill Parkes also achieved a personal best whilst raising money for the local air ambulance. Lee Cook pushed Robbie G around the course in a wheelchair to raise vital funds and awareness for local charity LIVES. The course was well supported despite the poor weather and it was nice to be back running around our closest city.
Four of our runners travelled further across the country to take part in the Worksop Halloween Half Marathon which runs through Clumber Park and offers some beautiful scenery. It was said to be great fun in monsoon conditions. Mark Sands was the first of our runners to cross the finish line in an impressive 1hr26, followed by Mark Lyon (1hr34), Ash Brown (1hr35) and Gail Davies in just over 2 hours.
Alan Fountain headed south to run the Fenland 10 mile race. This route has plenty of PB potential as it heads out onto flat Fenland roads. Alan completed the race in 1hr29.
