THE RUNDOWN – 7TH AUGUST: KEEP ON TRUCKIN’ 50 km ULTRA, HOOKY 6 & PARKRUN

Keep on Truckin’ 50km Ultra

Great effort from Jason Pitcher and Hannah Donelan took on this Ultra Marathon, which features 7.5 laps of Caldecotte Lake in Milton Keynes. Jason completed the distance in 4 hours and 48 minutes, having originally intended to run the marathon distance (but decided to do an extra lap “just for fun” to complete the 50km ultra distance!). Hannah completed “her first and last Ultra” in an excellent time of 4 hours and 54 minutes

Hooky 6

The Hooky 6 is a friendly, undulating, two lap, chip timed, 6 mile road race around the village of Hook Norton, and well done to Chris Revell who came 4th overall and 2nd v40 in a speedy time of 35.46.

Chris reports really enjoying the race (which was his main aim) and best of all won some beer! (though he also said that he found carrying the beer back to the car harder than the actual race, and may need to do some sort of upper body work).

Parkrun roundup

Fewer people this week at parkrun, probably due to holidays or attendance at the super Commonwealth Games events, but a fair bit of touristing going on with 14 events around the country visited. Well done to George de Bolla for a 1st overall at Kingsway parkrun, to Juliet Jones and Louise Bell for 1st & 3rd ladies respectively at Brueton, and to Nick Woolley for 3rd overall over at Sheringham. Well done also to Mick Williamson for his new PB this week , and welcome back Tanya Cronin to the new PB list – dipping now under the 26-minute mark! Well done also to Robert Stewart for a 2nd consecutive new parkrun PB over at Oakland parkrun
