Harborough Carnival of Running

Market Harborough Building Society Carnival of Running - Saturday, June 13, 2015

Market Harborough’s streets witnessed a new spectacle this Saturday as 500 runners took part in the town’s first Market Harborough Building Society Carnival of Running.   

Around seven thousand spectators lined the town’s streets to see the runners complete the half marathon & 10k event. Some had come to cheer on family and friends, whilst others were there to enjoy the carnival floats which came past shortly afterwards.

The race was officially started by Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn – who then joined the crowd and completed the half marathon. Runners started at Robert Smyth Academy, then went through the town centre where the roads were lined with cheering crowds. The central portion of the half marathon consisted of country lanes and a quick tour of villages including Welham and Thorpe Langton before ending by the carnival grounds.

Feedback for the event from runners on social media was swift and positive – universally praising the course, the marshals and the route.  Even the day’s ongoing drizzle failed to dampen the enthusiasm for the run which was more of a problem for organisers than for the runners.  

The event has been several years in the planning with a number of routes and dates considered before the collaboration with the town’s long standing carnival was decided as the best option. Runners between the ages of 15 and 82 competed, with runners travelling from Sussex, Forest of Dean and Felixstowe, as well as closer to home to participate.

The event organisers Race Harborough, led by Brian Corcoran and Amy Kingston, were delighted by the numbers taking part and the positive feedback. “We couldn’t have been happier with how well it went and the fantastic support from the crowds, sponsors and marshals that helped to make it such a good day for the runners” comments Brian. “We are already planning ways to make next year’s event even bigger and better.”  

Laurence Wicks and Rosanna Andrews (Northampton Road Runners) took first place in their respective categories in the Half Marathon, whilst Matt Driver and Karen Brooks, both of Harborough Athletics Club, pushed past the competition in the 10k race. PSC Fire Safety took first place in The Ideal Marketing Company Corporate Relay Challenge.

Over £17,000 was raised for a variety of causes, including The Squires Effect, Fight for Sight and Guide Dogs, Cransleigh Hospice, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance, British Heart Foundation, CCLG, and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

More pictures and details of the event are at www.raceharborough.co.uk.

The next event organised by Race Harborough will be the return of the Archway House Harborough Triathlon on September 6th.

London Enduro

The London Enduro

Over 150 endurance runners gathered on Wimbledon Common to take part in the annual 12-hour endurance race, The London Enduro. 

The event began at 7pm and saw participants take part in either an overnight 50km race or an overnight 12-hour option, where runners had to cover as much distance as possible in the set time. The 12-hour race allowed both solo runners and teams of either two, three to four or five to six people to take part.

Richard Xerri, Founder and Director at Perseverance Events (www.perseverance-events.com) says: “The London Enduro is now in its second year and is proving to be a popular event in the endurance running calendar. It’s definitely not for the faint-hearted and being at night means that there are added challenges. The feedback from this year’s event has been incredible and it was great to see so many regular endurance runners taking part.”

The 10km loop covered an undulating off-road, traffic-free course through woodland trails, rarely used paths and open fields of Wimbledon Common.

Winners of the 12-hour race were Flavio Fernandes who completed 12 laps in 12:03:06 (120km) and Alice Travers with 10 laps in 12:19:21 (100km).

Winners of the 50km event were Mat Gallagher with a finishing time of 4:03:58 and Jana Studzinski with 5:40:58.

“Offering a 12-hour endurance event in London means that runners don’t have to travel miles to take part in the event. We even had Rob Young, the MarathonManUK join us and take part in the team event. He really enjoyed the challenging course and getting to know the other competitors, while continuing to raise money for good causes,” says Richard Xerri.

Summer Breeze Running Festival

Over 1,000 people completed the Summer Breeze Running Festival consisting of a half marathon or 10km distance on Wimbledon Common. 

The Summer Breeze running festival was an afternoon event, with races beginning at 4pm and allowing participants to relax after their run, grab food from the barbeque and listen to live bands.

Participants of both the half marathon and 10km were taken on a challenging, trail course through the woodland of Wimbledon Common incorporating rarely used paths as well as the hill of doom. 

Richard Xerri, Founder and Director at Perseverance Events (www.perseverance-events.com) says: “The 2015 Summer Breeze Running Festival was a great success! Now in it’s second year, it was great to see runners returning from last year and taking part in this afternoon race. We are lucky to be holding this event in Wimbledon, the races are 100% off-road and traffic-free, which is great for London. Feedback from the runners has been very positive and they really enjoyed the variety of the trail course set out and I think it was tougher than they expected!

The winners of the 10km race were Kevin Quinn of South London Harriers with a fast time of 36:40 and Monita Scullard with 45:00. The winners of the half marathon were Douglas Hancock with a time of 1:21:09 and Heather Wilson with 1:38:09.

Friends and families of all the participants were able to walk around the event village while the race was taking place where local vendors provided great snacks and giveaways. The likes of Fire & Brimstone provided a barbeque, Sweaty Betty provided free yoga for everyone, Up and Running East Sheen, Balega were present as well as Rebound Clinic providing pre and post-event massages for all participants.

The Summer Breeze Running Festival ended the day by presenting a cheque for £2,000 donation to the official charity Shooting Star Chase.

The predicted thunderstorms did not materialise but the course was nicely watered overnight to create some nice slippery running conditions out at Montacute and another bumper turnout of 210 runners, of whom 40 were first timers, with visitors from near and far, and 34 new Personal Bests.
 
A number of our regulars completed their 50th parkruns and there were seven “100 Club” shirts amongst the throng!
 
Little Lily Purchase stormed round for a second consecutive Personal Best – having broken the 30 minute mark last week, she ran a superb 27m43 this time around and is now faster than Mum Jo-Anne’s PB of 28m35!

Asda Foundation Hull 10K

Asda Foundation Hull - 10K Sunday, June 14, 2015

The sixth Asda Foundation Hull 10K was hailed a huge success as thousands of runners took to the city’s streets raising vital funds for good causes across East Yorkshire.

There were great cheers as former Hull City striker Dean Windass and home-grown boxer Tommy Coyle helped get the race underway in the heart of the historic city centre, alongside the Lord Mayor, Councillor Anita Harrison.

The streets were filled with colour and noise with large, enthusiastic crowds offering the runners fantastic support as they made their way around the route, which started and finished outside the Guildhall in Alfred Gelder Street and took in the waterfront, marina, The Deep sea life visitor attraction and other Hull landmarks.

First across the finishing line was Alec Gibson in a time of 33 mins 31 secs. He was followed by Les Ball who took second spot in 33 mins 55 secs. David Sedgwick was third in 34 mins 21 secs.

Jo Maddick was the first woman in 36 mins 30 secs, finishing ahead of Catherine Jeremiah in second who clocked 38 mins 25 secs. Emma Yates took third place in 38 mins 32 secs.

New dad Tommy Coyle – who is preparing for a hotly-anticipated bout against fellow Hull boxer Luke Campbell – clocked an impressive finish time of 49 mins 51 secs, while Dean Windass finished a second ahead in 49 mins 50 secs. Also taking part was Miss Hull, Maryann Cunningham who achieved 1 hour 1 minute and 52 secs.

Among those also celebrating crossing the finishing line was 37-year-old Paul Halliday, of Kingwood, Hull, who took part in his first 10K after shedding 10 stones. Now tipping the scales at under 14 stones, he ran 1K for every stone he had lost to raise money for Candlelighters. Paul finished in a time of 53 mins 33 secs.

Asda Foundation Hull - 10K Sunday, June 14, 2015

Almost 100 Asda Colleagues also pulled on their trainers to take part, while the field also included over 480 runners taking part in the KC Hull 10K Corporate Challenge, a record entry for the event in which businesses compete to be crowned the fastest firm in the race.

Runners were able to run for fun or for a good cause of their choice. They were particularly encouraged to support one of the event’s partner charities: the Jane Tomlinson Appeal,  Hull and East Riding (HER) Breast Friends, CLIC Sargent, Candlelighters, Dove House Hospice, Echoes Foundation, Hull Children’s University, Macmillan Cancer Support, Martin House Children’s Hospice and Yorkshire Cancer Research.

The race is supported by Asda Foundation, Hull City Council, KC, MKM Building Supplies, Arco, Runner’s World, Hull Daily Mail, Viking FM, Run 247, Banana Kick and LTS.

Organised by Run For All, it forms part of the successful Asda Foundation 10K series that includes events in Lincoln, Burnley, Leeds and York as well as Hull.

Mabie Forest Trail Race

Mabie Forest Trail Race

Perfect running conditions greeted the runners at the Mabie Forest Trail Race with most, including the organisers Dumfries Harriers, being delighted that the heat of the previous day had subsided.

The 10k race takes full advantage of the beautiful trails and forest roads that the forest offers and takes in the highest point. Most would agree that it is a tricky and challenging course, but rarely does anyone finish without a huge smile on their face and this year was no different. The subsequent email comments confirmed the good experience which the correspondents had enjoyed.

The course was the driest which is has ever been for this race, but regular runners will have noticed the different feel to the middle section of the course due to felling by the Forestry Commission. This also provided a new challenge for around 400 yards between miles 1 and 2, as the forestry vehicles had churned the road up and also left a carpet of small branches.

Of particular interest in respect of the runners was Keiran Cooper from Glasgow, who only made the qualifying age of 15 by two weeks. His performance belied his age when he finished in 43.05 and his must be a name to watch for in the future.

For the overall winner of the men's race, Howard Seal of Cockermouth, it was a second victory in three years. Howard actually comes to Dumfries & Galloway to attend the popular Eden Festival and just 'pops down' to compete in a lull in the music.

For Jo Zakrezwski of Dumfries Running Club, who represented Scotland in the marathon at the Commonwealth Games last year, it was a wee 'leg opener' before the 300km Dragon's Back Race the next week.

Maidenhead’s 26.2 Team Challenge

Local families, colleagues, fundraisers and seasoned athletes laced up their trainers and took part in Maidenhead’s 26.2 Team Challenge on Sunday 14 June, hosted by local race organiser Purple Patch Running. From club runners looking to share that marathon feeling, to charity runners donning quirky fancy dress costumes, there was abundant enthusiasm for the relay race - and it did not disappoint.

Braywick Park was blessed with sunshine and the athletic track start line was alive with energy. First the children took to the track for the junior races, with tremendous roars from spectators. The cheers helped those aged under seven complete one 400 metre lap, and the older age groups of under nine and under twelve year olds complete two laps. Delighted with their finishers’ medals, the juniors left the track to make way for the adults.

Thirty four teams of up to ten runners took it in turns to run their allocated 2.62 mile lap, with some individuals completing two or three laps in total. One runner, Mark Travers from St Albans, decided to tackle the whole course by himself! Starting on the athletics track, the route led competitors along the outskirts of Braywick sports ground, along Green Lane to Stafferton Way, a short distance along the A308 and then into the athletic track finish line. Spectators treated every runner to a hero’s finish, before the baton was passed and the next relay runner went on their way.

Dressed all in yellow, Alison Cooksam from team ‘Lemon Drizzlers’ commented: “I was sat here with my team waiting to run my 2.62 leg, and we realised we’d already completed a half marathon – it’s such a great feeling knowing what you can achieve as part of a team. It’s been an amazing event and with cheers both out on the course and the track finish, it’s been brilliant fun!”

Steve Mullen and his team from Active Health won the ‘best fancy dress’ award last year, and not wanting to disappoint, his team ran Sunday’s challenge dressed as popular Disney characters. Thanks to their effort, the team remain champions. He said: “Last year was so much fun that we made sure we got a team together for this year’s event. As well as raising money for the Alexander Devine Charity, I hope our costumes have provided humour for others taking part. We certainly had a few double takes from dog walkers whilst we were out on the course!” 

The overall winners of the 26.2 Team Challenge were Cookham Running Club, completing the marathon distance in 2 hours and 53 minutes.  On hearing of their win, team runner Louise Ferriman commented: “We didn’t enter today expecting to come first so we’re all ecstatic! It was a great opportunity for us as a club to have young and old working together to achieve that end goal and the atmosphere has been amazing. We often compete in 5k races but this is something so new to us, I’ve not seen anything like it before. We’ll definitely be bringing more teams back next year!”

Chris Donald, Race Director, describes the event as a huge success: “I’d like to say a massive congratulations to each and every runner that took part in the 26.2 Team Challenge. Every year we are bowled over by the team spirit and dedication to this event - the sight of runners, young and old, competing together is truly inspiring. I’d like to add a special thanks to the spectators who helped make it such a special atmosphere.”

Orpington High Elms 10k

Orpington High Elms 10k

Orpington Road Runners held its 18th 10k utilising the new course in High Elms Country Park. Billed as the toughest 10k inside the M25, and voted 8th best 10k in the UK and 34th best distance race by Runners World this event had set the bar very high last year.  Maximum Entries were increased to 400, with the event selling out three weeks before race day.

Orpington Road Runners fielded over 100 marshals whose role was to both ensure the safety of the runners and also to give some much needed support on the eight ascents, ranging between 10% and 22% gradients.  Given the toughness of the course only fifty percent managed to finish within the hour, with the other half all completing the course within 90 minutes.

This year’s event was won by Peter Tucker of Blackheath Harriers in 38:11.1 closely followed by Chirs Biddle of Dartford Harriers in 38:41.8 and in third place Alex Money in 39:16.8 

The first female to cross the line was Alison Dewynter in 44:39.6 with Emma Crawford hot on her tail finishing in 44:43.0 the third lady Anoushka Johnson finished in 45:49.8

SLGR had just one entrant in 2014 but decided to make this event one of the Grand Prix events and fielded a team of 38. Petts Wood Runners was the second largest club with 28 entrants.  Despite the extreme challenge of the course seventy percent of finishers were not affiliated to a club, with entrants coming from as far afield Scotland, Halifax, and Bristol.

The race is organised by Orpington Road Runners. Details of the event can be found by visiting Orpington Road Runners website: www.orprunners.com

The course can be seen on Strava: www.strava.com/activities/116245970

Two Castles Run  

Two Castles Run

Sunday’s 33rd  Two Castles Run was held in ideal conditions for competitors, with the temperatures cool and the threatened rain holding off.  The race, organised by the Kenilworth Rotary Club, with the help of Leamington Cycling and Athletics Club, had a full entry of 4000 and again provided Kenilworth with its biggest sporting spectacle, living up to its reputation as one of the best and classic 10k runs in the country. The event raised over £100,000 for charity .

The first lady home was Joanne McCandless, in a time of 39 minutes and 8 seconds. She commented "I had a good run enjoying it all the way. Last year I was injured and its good to be back and win."
