THE RUNDOWN – 5TH FEBRUARY: WARWICK HALF MARATHON, CENTURIONS RACE 4, ALSAGER 5 & PARKRUN

Warwick Half Marathon, Alsager 5 and Parkrun Roundup ( by Katie Price)

It’s that time of year where more races are starting to appear on the calendar, more people are using races as part of their training plans and others are just using them to have fun and for personal challenges. We are missing Brueton parkrun results at present as they have missing results possibly from a scanner not downloading their results before leaving the park, but there were plenty of members who chose to run elsewhere and enjoy a bit of parkrun tourism.

Although we don’t yet have the results for Brueton we know that Martin Hancock celebrated his 250th parkrun this week, and to think he does a lot of volunteering on top of this, so well done to Martin.

Alsager 5 

Well done to Chris Revell who completed the course in 28.11 and was 57th of 10th vet 40 male. He commented  “It was a crazily fast course where the whole race felt downhill and attracted loads of fast people hence coming 57th. The toilet situation and the course coming in a bit longer than my watch expected were the only downsides but it was an awesome race so will ideally do it next year!”

It was the final race in the series this weekend, and well done to everyone taking part – Steve Armstrong led the K&D contingent home, with Stephen  Ray hot on his heels. Results below:
