Ladies March 2015 Race Report

Written by 
A busy racing month so lots of reporting I will just get to the point this month...the results!
The return after being absent for many years!  I was supposed to be in attendance but was struck down by a nasty virus so I feel I  missed out on a great event :-(
66th       Helen Gilbert                       1.16.56
86th       Sally Newman                      1.20.36
116th     Pauline Woods                     1.24.24
133rd     Karen Thompson                 1.27.`18
155th     Maxine Bennett                    1.31.35
169th     Sarah Ngugi                         1.35.44
174th     Sarah Mcmillan                     1.36.24
184th     Sarah Heath                          1.39.05     (what a lot of Sarahs!)
195th     Ylva Chapman                       1.43.46
197th     Helen Tabeshfar                   1.44.02
207th     Vanessa Leonard                  1.51.28      (220 finishers)
SALISBURY 10  (Club Champ race)
189th    Hannah Collier                      1.11.26
295th    Heather Khoshnevis              1.16.38
426th    Trisha Reilly                          1.24.19        (698 finishers)
THAMES MEANDER MARATHON                                                                                                                                                                               Both the Thames Meander Marathon / Half routes run along the Thames Path on the riverside trail starting and finishing at the YMCA Hawker Centre. The out / back marathon route initially proceeds from the YMCA HQ towards Kingston Bridge on a dog leg out /back course then returns past the race HQ and along the Thames Path all the way to the near side of Putney Bridge which is the turnaround point, then back along the Thames Path to finish back at the YMCA HQ. The half marathon proceeds all the way down the Thames Path up to just past Kew Pier which is the turnaround point, returning to the HQ. Both of these courses are flatter and faster than the initial courses so we’re expecting some great marathon PB’s.
167th    Heather Khoshnevis              4.05.16
The Larmer Tree half Marathon and 20 mile are demanding off road races. Starting in the beautiful surroundings of the Larmer Tree Gardens on the Rushmore on the border of Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. These hilly mainly off road race start and finish on the edge of the tiny Wiltshire village of Tollard Royal home of the Larmer tree gardens and fantastic scenery of the Wiltshire and Hampshire chalk downs. These races can be a standalone half and 20 or warm up for other spring marathons like the London Marathon, Paris or Ox Races in May. The Larmer Tree Marathon is the first significant off road marathon of the year. It will encompass some of the most beautiful and challenging parts of the three counties. The race will be demanding but we will look after with regular water and aid stations full medical cover and the chance of a sneaky cider and cake at "love lounge".
67th  Julie  White        4.15
62nd   Carmel Ryan     3.05
Run, walk or crawl a marathon a day for 3 days along the stunning Jurassic Coastal Path.  3 marathons in 3 days is a format that is challenging but achievable by most. Runners, joggers and walkers all take on the challenge and start at different times each day. The routes each day are marked on issued maps but don't require much navigation to follow as the coastal footpath is well marked along the way. The event is facilitated at the HQ area which is also the finish point of day 1. Meals, massage, shop and briefing are all located at the HQ. The official challenge accommodation is less than 200 meters away. Well within hobbling distance!  The votwo team take care of everything at the event for you so all you need to concentrate on is completing the distance each day. This race is also a quallifier for The North Face Ultra - Trail du Mont-Blanc CAROLINE HORDER  decided she would  do just the Friday event, but ended up joining in Saturday as well!  Well done Caroline on completing 2 very tough marathons back to back.....and still manages to run with my group tuesday morning and be in front!!  Caroline is the Iron Lady! :-)
Very well done to MANDIE WALES for winning her age catagory in the Winter series of these races :-)
Enjoy running on flat, forest trails, all off-road and traffic-free. These gorgeous woodland routes are completely flat, great for speedy PBs and newbies
53rd      Julie Basett           49.45
58th      Krystina Byrne       50.08
16th      Helen Tabashfar    28.15
