Thirteen club members turned out for the 6th championship race of the year, the Blisworth 5 mile. It was a beautiful sunny evening, warm with a slight breeze and though the course was hilly, there were many impressive performances with everyone achieving a Bronze Standard or above. Congratulations to Emily and Kevin for being first club female and male. And a special mention to Jane Smith who is the first club member to reach GOLD STANDARD, having run 5 different distances with a WAVA score of 60% or above PLUS a marathon – excellent stuff Jane!
Spare a thought for Steve Thomson who battled through pain to complete the course in a very respectable (gold standard) time. He tells me he is finally going to stop running for a few weeks to recover from his injury (we’ve heard that one before). So if he does turn up on a club night in the near future ready to run, send him home or he’ll never get better!
