THE RUNDOWN – 11TH DECEMBER: WARWICKSHIRE XC, TELFORD 10k, SANTA DASH & PARKRUN

Warwickshire/Worcs XC Champs

5 K&D men’s runners competed in the combined Warwickshire/ Worcestershire XC championships at a new venue in Easenhall. Runners were treated to sub zero conditions for the challenging course, which featured steep hills, muddy fields and difficult cambers. Nick Woolley was first K&D finisher in the senior race as 12th Warwickshire runner. Paul Baker, Dave Carbutt, Ed Bower and Pete Austin all ran strongly to finish as 6th Masters team.

Meanwhile on the ladies side, Myshola Kirkham made an excellent debut race for K&D, finishing as 4th masters runner, with Kate Leeson also cracking the top 20 in 19th. Both great results which bode well for the last 2 races of the XC season!

Telford 10k

Sunday saw 6 of our members brave the cold conditions and travel to Telford for the annual 10k (on what is normally one of the fastest courses in the UK). First back for K&D was Anna Delaney in an excellent time of 43:08, followed by Zammie Williamson in 45:05. Next in was  Graham Edwards posting yet another PB by some significant margin (over 2 mins) in 47:29, followed by Paul Winwood in 51:17. Well done also to Katie Price for finishing in a course PB time of 53:55 and to Sammie Edginton who finished in 1:04:12

Leamington Santa Dash

Meanwhile a little closer to home, Nicky Evans and Mark Gale took part in the popular Santa Dash – well done to Nicky for her 1st Lady!

Parkrun Roundup

The current icy/cold weather led to the cancellation of many parkruns this weekend, including Brueton. There were a few on in other areas (mainly those venues with non-tarmac or gritted courses!)

Not surprisingly, no PBs this week, and well done to Monica Green for her 1st Lady at Coventry! Results in the table below:
