THE RUNDOWN 22ND OCTOBER: MENS XC MIDLAND RELAYS, WYRE WIZARD TRAIL HALF MARATHON & PARKRUN

Midlands XC Relays

Alderlsey leisure centre was the venue for the traditional cross country pre season opener. As 4 brave souls crossed the West midlands in the wake of storm Babet to take on the Midlands XC relays. In fairness the conditions were reasonable, as a mixture of fresh and somewhat crusty spikes were unleashed from kit bags in anticipation of what was to come. Torsten Roesler led the team out to a solid start, followed by Gary Polhill, Dave Carbutt and finished off by Jonathan Lewis who was making his K&D debut. The team completed the 4x6k legs in 1:30:45, finishing in a respectable 21st position. Full results in the link here

Wyre Wizard Trail Half Marathon

Just one race to report on this week, and well done to Katie Price for her longest run since April (following an injury) completing this challenging trail half marathon in 2 hours and 31 minutes

Parkrun Roundup

On a Saturday that saw hundreds of parkruns cancelled around the country following the Storm Babet flooding, yet an amazing 60+ K&D runners still managed to find an event to take part in. Best reasons we saw for event cancellations included “course currently under the Mersey” and “spotting whales and dolphins” at Tamworth. Well done to Bruce Hampton and Brian Corr for new parkrun PBs, and to Gareth Wainwright for yet another 1st overall at Brueton. Full results in the table below:
