Weekend Recap Part 1: Chicag-Oh My, Hail Mary, Chest-AH! Tri-Hard with a Vengance, OxPHWOARd

, ,

Two parter this week as so many of you were running!

Chicago Marathon:
The boys took over the windy city as Chris Sharp, Gareth Wainwright and John Garside took on Chicago, Mo and rotten weather. Sharpy ran 2:42:26 finishing 267th. Gareth ran 2:54:01 and John clocked 3:41:16. Great running in terrible conditions.

Chester Marathon:
Superb runs from Rob Michaelson-Yeates and Mary Heald headlined Chester Marathon. Rob scorched round in 2:50:06 while Mary, on a week’s notice, turned up and crushed a 3:14:11. A one week training plan. :laughingfaceemoji/cryingfaceemoiji:. Epic running from both.  Special mentions to Rob Ambrose (who banished London memories and ran consistently for 26.2), Monica who donned the Northern Ireland Masters International vest (and battled through despite not feeling 100%, doing NI very proud!) and Paul Winwood who ran a 25 min PB!

Full results: 
Rob Michaelson-Yeates – 2:50:06
