Weekend Recap: Round Sheffield Brum, Phwoarbay Half


Round Sheffield Run:

Brummies on Tour as Jude, Kathy and Elaine took on the Round Sheffield Run. A multistage trail run that can be ran solo or in teams. Don’t be fooled by the sparkly skirts; our ladies are tough as Sheffield Steel. Elaine Callinan ran solo, clocking the 13ish miles in 01:53:49. Taking on some epic hills. Jude and Kathy tag teamed up like WWE Tag Team Champinos. Jude and Kathy ran a combined time of 01:54:56. Well done you three!

Torbay Half: Scorchio. With Hills and Heat we saw a roasting Sunday morning race along the sea-front in Torbay. Darren John and Kate Marsh took the chance to treat the morning as a good training run. Darren with a dodgy right calf ran a solid 1:22:57 Tempo run while Kate Marsh enjoyed a leisurely 2:10:04. Both used lots of suntan lotion and avoided burning or being clattered by seagulls on the rampage.

Brueton parkrun:

Chris Morgan lay down a fast parkrun on Saturday morning clocking a storming 17:06.  Gareth Wainwright who missed Arden 9 with a tight hamstring showed he’s none the worse off with a 17:18. Third K&D was Darren John in 18:15 who had to stop and do his shoe laces up half-way round. Anyone got any velco running shoes?

Monica Green was first lady overall at Brueton with a strong 20:50. Superb running from MG. Monica was 2 seconds ahead of Flick Sharp who clocked 20:52. Her fastest in 2018. Mary Heald ran 22:23, which means you’d have had to be very quick to be on our women’s podium this week!

Robert Mundy PB’d with a superb 19:21. Robert has only done 6 parkrun’s since 2014. Rare like Unicorn Eggs. Excellent PB though!

Cannock Chase parkrun:

Kevin Tomkinson ticked off another parkrun with a 26:01, putting the Chase into Cannock.

Arrow Valley parkrun:

Richard Dixon enjoyed the cool shade of Arrow Valley’s lakeside setting with an 18:49.

Cannon Hill parkrun:

A food festival caused a re-routing of the Cannon Hill parkrun in Birmingham. Mmm Food. Phil Wood embraced the change and ran 25:28. No word on how much food he ate after…

Newport parkrun:

The Whiteheads on Tour; Keith and Linda took in Newport, Wales running 24:59 and 30:27 respectively.

Barstaple parkrun:
Subhash Agarwalla had a barnstorming run in Barnstaple. He ran the numerically lovely 26:26.

Witton parkrun:

Lissy Calvert got a bit lost on her way to Perry Hall parkrun, ending up in Witton, Blackburn instead of Witton, Birmingham. She did at least get to tick off another parkrun in 32:12.

Dolgellau parkrun:

Greg Turner was allowed over the boarder into Wales. Surprising. We thought he was still Asbo’ed from Wales. 20:06 before he made a quick exit.

Stratford-upon-Avon parkrun:

Richard Orriel continued his impressive form over the last few weeks by running 21:18 on the beautiful Stratford course.

Portsmouth Lakeside parkrun:

Rob Ambrose found himself at the end of the country. In Portsmouth he took on the lakeside course and ran sub 20 in 19:53.

Witney (Houston) parkrun:

And IIIIIIIII will allllllways run you…

John Garside ran 23:31 to complete Witney (Houston) parkrun in Oxfordshire.
