THE RUNDOWN – 26TH JUNE: LEAMINGTON HALF, REDDITCH HALF & 10K & PARKRUN

Leamington Spa Half Marathon

Voted the second-best half marathon in the UK in 2019, and taking place on closed roads around the scenic town and local countryside of Leamington Spa. Paul Bentley was first home for K&D in a quick time of 1 hour and 25 minutes. Congratulations to Karen Ratcliffe for finishing in 2:01 and also winning her Age Category prize, closely followed by Natalie Callinan completing the course in 2 hours and 5 minutes.

Redditch Half Marathon & 10K

These are new races/course for 2022, on closed roads with a fair bit of climbing (definitely not a PB course as those who ran this distance and the 10k will probably testify!). Well done to John Kelly who finished in 1:44:05, coming 3rd in his Age Category

Great effort also from Lee Brotherhood at the Redditch 10k distance, finishing 16th overall (and 2nd in Age Category) in a time of 41:31

Joust 24 Team Ultra

Well done also to Lucy Chapman running 4 legs of this 24-hour Team ultra event in the Malvern Hills. Lucy completed 4 x 5.5mile laps for her team who completed over 137 miles in the time period.

Parkrun Roundup

BIG shout-out this week to Jane Evans for a new V45 Age Category record at Brueton – finishing 1st lady and 11th overall in a super-quick 19:26. Special mentions also to Juliet Jones (3rd Lady), and to Monica Green who was 3rd Lady over at Bolberry Down parkrun.
