THE RUNDOWN – 12TH SEPTEMBER: KENILWORTH HALF, ENGLAND MASTERS CHAMPS, GREAT NORTH RUN, RICHMOND & BRIGHTON MARATHONS, & PARKRUN
Kenilworth Half Marathon – Men’s Captain Chris Sharp takes the win!
A superb first place for Men’s Captain Chris Sharp at today’s Kenilworth half marathon, which saw 13 of our members taking part in the popular local race, which had reverted to a 1-lap course this year. Chris finished in a speedy time of 1:10:51 – which was also a new PB, seeing him on track to run a quick marathon in a few weeks time. Continuing with the PB theme, Adeba Jama continued her excellent run of form, notching up her second PB of the weekend, and second HM PB in the last month. Excellent runs also from Jess Woolley who led the K&D ladies home, as well as from Habib Farazmand and Andrew Connors. Full results are in the table below
|Race/Name||Age Cat||Chip time||Position||Cat Position|

Richmond and Brighton Marathons
The autumn marathons have now started in earnest, seeing Paul O’Donnell and John Garside (pictured) also down at the Richmond Runfest, with Paul achieving a new PB of 3:43:04, with John coming in not far behind him in 4:05.:55. Meanwhile further south, Mike McDonald took on the Brighton Marathon, completing it in a time of 4:44:24
Great North Run – PB for Kev!
Yet another PB to mention this week, this time for Kev Tomkinson completing the Great North run in a time of 2:02:36
Another busy week at parkruns around the country, with Gareth Wainwright again leading the K&D contingent home at Brueton. Another parkrun PB for Adeba Jama who was also 2nd lady/1st in Age cat (supposedly taking it easy before a half marathon the following day!), and a PB also for Rachel Gifford down at Warwick Racecourse. Results are all below, and remember if you want your results reported, then make sure you have K&D listed in the parkrun system as your home club.
