Club Champs 20 mile - Prov. RESULTS + report
Tue Mar 11, 2014 01:07

Another successful Club 20 was held on Saturday. Most surprising was the number of entrants with around 57 runners crossing the starting line, and 40 (maybe 41) crossing the finishing line, an amazing increase on recent years. Great to see so many enthusiastic club members and guests getting involved with what is always a tough mental and physical race.

Well done Tom Heslop who tried some variable pacing to finish comfortably first, well under two hours. Connor was a few minutes behind and was said to be nearly hallucinating on account of his efforts made. Good thing Rebecca was there at the finish, as she was for all of us. New member Andrew Leveson showed much promise after his leisurely start turning up the pace to take some places and finish 3rd. Andrew has already gone sub 2:40 for the marathon, I look forward to seeing future results from this fine and friendly athlete. For the vets, special note to Matthew Thompson who has never run competitively over the half marathon distance and put in a sterling effort to finish as first MV40. Peter Frsiby has been running very well recently and was rewarded with a fine 2:40 time. Also of note Club 20 Greg McClure (brother of Mel) who ran very well and was, I believe, off to run the Finchley 20 the next day!

It was a day for our strong vet women, with all three fastest females also being FV40. Well done Jo Singer, another name on the trophy. Not her fastest time ever, but pretty close from this consistently quick club member. Naomi was less than 30 seconds behind, continues her cracking form at the moment. Catherine McLaughlin came in just a few minutes later.

Conditions were dry, quite sunny, a little windy.

Highlights from the day:
- Winner Tom Heslop had never before ran this distance. In preparation for his first marathon attempt this April. Expect great things from one of the clubs greatest all-rounders.
- Many other runners had never run/raced at this distance before, including Alex Lewis and Catherine McLaughlin training for their first marathons.
- Maeve Rutt (guest) who had only run 13 miles before this race
- Mordi actually completing a race
- Declan perfectly pacing Philippa to a new PB. Well done both!
- Great to see June Barrow-Green out in the park too. Rumours this may be her last or many marathons...
