KOSICE - SLOVAKIA MARATHON - 2nd Oct.

Tracey Lander                                                        3.59.59  well done Tracey - a perfect sub 4 !

 

ETON DORNEY MIDWEEK MARATHON - 6th Oct.

The event was held in a small private nature reserve which forms part of the Dorney Lake estate.  Dorney Lake was the venue for the 2012 Olympic rowing events which saw Team GB win 4 gold medals in the rowing events as well as a gold in the canoe sprint. 

This was a "free trial" event for a new running event company called Running Miles and I can honestly say it was first class and the tuck shop fuel station was the best ever, along with our chocolate filled goody bags and free tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival!  What is there not to like! They have now organised their next events which take place on 9th March and 15th June so if you liked the sound of this one, then come and join me!

Heather Khoshnevis          3.48.46

Susie Elliott                       4.59.56

This has been absent from the marathon calender since 1993 and has now returned to test your strength and character apparently!  A very pretty 2 lap course (with the choice of a half marathon) taking you through pretty Kent villages and country lanes....BUT be warned...there is 2500ft of climbing involved!!

BURTON BRADSTOCK MARATHON - 16th Oct

This was the first time for this marathon, with a 5k, 10k, and half option, and it does sound rather nice!

The route is a picturesque journey through some of the most spectacular Dorset countryside, classed as the gateway to the Jurassic coast it will follow quite roads taking you from Burton Bradstock to Litton Cheney, a picturesque village in the heart of Dorset, before you head back towards Burton Bradstock and the spectacular views back towards the Jurassic coast, all routes will return through Burton Bradstock itself, time if you have the energy to take in the Beauty around you,The marathon will follow two laps of the Half marathon course.

BILBOA NIGHT MARATHON - SPAIN -  22nd Oct

WOW!  That was epic!  Not sure if it was the call of the hills and mud that attracted you all to this one, or just your absolute dedication to getting those last few remaining Club Championship points!  Either way,  Well done for a fine orange turnout.

 

So thats beautiful Autumnal October done and now as we head towards 2 or 3 months of fresh winter....we have 2 more very important races to run! They are both the remaining chances to score for both the Club Champ and DRRL.  These are the Wimborne 10 (cakes cakes cakes!) and Boscombe 10k.  Unfortunately if you have not already entered, they are both full!  If you are lucky enough to be offered a number from some poor soul who cannot run on the day,  please can you make sure that you contact the Race Organiser to change the details.  This is very very important for a number of reasons!

 

Well done ladies for an amazing month of running,  I now hope to be coming to the club on Tuesday nights so those of you who I have not met in person (I see so many new names popping out of race results) I shall look forward to meeting you.

 

Happy  Running
