Runners Need G3 Series

Runners Need G3 Series

The first of a series of three tough cross country races at Newlands Corner, Guildford took place this Saturday. Over 300 people completed the muddy 10.6km course with tough climbs including St Martha’s Hill twice and the climb back up to Newlands Corner.

Everyone worked hard to complete the hilly, slippery course and got their reward in the form of bananas, brownies, flapjacks and medals at the finish line.

Thank go to the event sponsors Runners Need without whom the G3 Series wouldn’t be possible. The winner of their muddy trainer competition will be announced shortly!

“Really enjoyed a fantastic day today in Guildford. Lovely people, well organised, wonderful. Thank you, will highly recommend.” commented Tracy, F, and Naomi J said “Great fun on a Saturday morning and possibly the most friendly run I have ever done. Great marshals, great runners.” .

There are two more events in the 2015 Runners Need G3 Series – 31st January and 21st February. Limited places are still available.

The John Flitch Memorial Duathlon

Thanet’s toughest race certainly lived up to its billing, with the mud and full dykes proving particularly challenging, although it was a beautiful clear sunny morning, if a little windy! 

It was close for first place between Jason Paton-Smith, who in the end won by 13 seconds, and Graeme Blair. TRAC’s Chris Brenchley finished in third place. 

Claire Hitchings of 7Oaks Tri was the first of two ladies to complete, finishing 4th overall in 1hr 45. Wendy Bradley completed the female turn out.

Rough 'n' Tumble

Rough 'n' Tumble

The gale force winds leading up to this year’s  annual multi terrain running event Rough ‘n’ Tumble held at Milton Lilbourne did not deter the 600 runners taking part.

Conditions this year were once again muddy and slippy but with clear skies, the competitors were rewarded with fine views over the Pewsey Vale. Strong winds on the high exposed parts of the course prevented any record breaking times but this year’s winner Hugh Mackenzie from Stockbridge pretty much led from the gun finishing in a time of 1.08.27 with second place once again going to Team Bath’s Allister Sheffield in 1.09.14. Local man Nathan Montague of Clench, who runs for Swindon Harriers came third in 1.09.38.

In the women’s race, Fay Cripps who has won for the past two years clinched victory for a third year in  1.18 54 with Nadine  Lewycky of Marshal Milton Keynes finishing half a minute behind her in 1.19.28. Third lady was Rebecca Awde of Bristol & West in 1.23.10.  

Competition was strong between the local clubs with Chippenham Harriers fielding 20 runners, Swindon Striders 25 and Royal Wootton Bassett 25 and Swindon Shin Splints 18. But this year’s team prizes went to Team Bath for the men’s team and Bristol & West for the ladies.

All finishers received a medal which this year will serve as a reminder of tough day out in the Wiltshire countryside.

Once again the Milton Lilbourne Village hall committee and residents provided a huge amount of delicious cakes for the runners that would rival the Great British Bake Off,  and helped with the marshalling and parking. Steve Goulding said that without them the event just would not be possible.
