THE RUNDOWN – 20TH MARCH: ASHBY 20, SHERWOOD PINES & HAMPTON COURT PALACE HALF MARATHON & PARKRUN

Ashby 20

It was the Ashby 20 for 3 of our K&D men. This “undulating” 2 lap-race is great spring marathon prep, and finishers receive the famous Ashby 20 hoody as well as a cheese cob! Paul Baker was first back, finishing in a speedy time of 02:14:27 and 44th overall (9th in age cat). Not far behind was Darren John in 02:21:26 and 74th overall, followed by James Taylor in 02:28:07 (115th overall)

Sherwood Pines & Hampton Court Half Marathons

Well done to Katie Price, who was up in North Notts running the Sherwood Pines HM on the undulating forest paths and trails. She was initially aiming for a 2:30 finish, so was very happy with her time of 2 hours 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, much further south, it was the scenic Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon for Rob Ambrose, who finished in an excellent 1:28

Parkrun Roundup

A cold and sunny Saturday morning saw 62 K&D runners take to the parks around the country. Great run from Jane Evans for 6th overall and 1st lady at Brueton, with Kerry Thomson coming 2nd lady. 4 PBs to mention this week: well done to Louise Taylor and Hayley Turner, and to Pete Austin and Pete Makepeace!
