THE RUNDOWN – 6TH FEBRUARY: ICING ON THE CAKE TRAIL MARATHON, CHARNWOOD HILLS RACE & PARKRUN

Icing on the Cake Trail Marathon

Trail running  was the theme for this weekend’s races: Jason Pitcher and Hannah Donelan travelled over to the Shropshire Hills to take on the Icing on the cake Trail marathon in the stunning Shropshire hills, Carding Valley and the Long Mynd, rewarded at the end with cake and a shaped medal!

Both finished the tough course in a very respectable 5 hours and 22 minutes, and special well done to Hanna for completing her first marathon!

Charnwood Hills Race

Meanwhile, over in Leicestershire, Karen Bell returned to the familiar hills of Charnwood to take on the popular Charnwood Hills race. With almost 2,000ft of climbing, and loads of mud due to the recent rain, it was heavy going at times, and she was happy to finish in 2 hours 39 minutes

Parkrun Roundup

Saturday saw the usual big numbers of K&D runners out parkrunning, at both the home Brueton parkrun, as well as another 12 or so venues around the country. Just 3 PBs this week: Tanya Cronin yet again (and fast approaching the 27-minute mark – maybe next week into the 26s?), Lewis Towers and also Jill Colyer over at Worcester Pitchfork.
