RUNDOWN – 1ST MAY: PEMBROKESHIRE ULTRA & HALF, GREAT BIRMINGHAM RUN (HM & 10K) & PARKRUN
Great Birmingham Run (Half Marathon)
Another local favourite race back for 2022, and the Great Birmingham Run saw 13 of our members take part in the HM distance and 9 in the 10k event.
Gary Polhill was the first K&D runner home in 16th position overall, in a speedy time of 1 hour and 16 minutes, followed by Greg Turner in 1 hour 23 minutes. Adeba Jama was first K&D lady back, in a new PB time of 1 hour and 41 minutes
Well done to Amelia Crees for completing her first official half marathon (and of course a new HM PB!) of 2 hours and 2 minutes, and also to Katie Price for her new HM PB of 1 hour 59 minutes respectively!
And for the 10k distance:
Pembrokeshire Ultra and Half
It was off to the scenic Pembrokeshire coast on Saturday for the Coastal Trail Ultra for Paul Winwood and Jason Pitcher, with Jason completing the 35 mile distance 32nd overall in an excellent time of 6 hours and15 minutes. Paul finished in 9 hours exactly, and in 112th pace overall. Meanwhile Karen Sweeney ran the Half Marathon distance, finishing in 364th place, in 3 hours and 30 minutes.
Slightly few runners than of late at parkrun this week (first time the count has dropped under 50 for a while, and possibly due to the bank holiday. Special mentions this week to Flick Sharp (1st Lady at Brueton), and to Juliet Jones for a new parkrun PB and 3rd lady at Brueton. Tanya Cronin is back in the PB update, with a new one this week at Babbs Mill. And finally, it was a PB double this weekend for Katie Price, adding the parkrun PB to her new HM PB on Sunday
