HIGHWORTH 5 MILE
A fantastic turn out from the members of Running Somewhere Else at this year’s 31st Highworth 5 Mile race. A lovely sunny Sunday morning with perfect running conditions bought over 200 competitors to this popular race . A fast start to this course for the first 3 miles along country lanes, and then comes the long road to the ever looming, dreaded hill!! Where the last mile is a long climb to the top, with a short run to finish onto the school field. First home for the club was Justin Dixey (His 1st Race!) who finished in 33.06 followed closely by Dave Witnall 33.09, Sharon Smith 37.33 (PB), Martin Pitts 38.08, Graham Aitchison 38.35, Steve Sandercock 40.31 (PB), Lizzie Clark 41.03, Kirsty Pitts 41.40, (an injured) Matt Lambourne 42.39, Nadine Brown 44.09 (1st Race ever!), Cat Shelley 45.00, Jacki Day 45.54, Richard Marshall 46.50, Alice Mason 47.34, Claire Joyce 47.42, Jenny Hoffman 48.16, Kate Potter 48.24, Tracey Pitts 48.52 and Caroline Sandercock 53.48.
These are provisional results and maybe subject to change….
Some more awesome news…… Sharon has just been told she is 1st in the rankings for the 5 mile this year!
More amazing results from 2 RSE members at the Angels 10k on Sunday, which is part of the Gloucestershire AAA County Road Race Series. This hilly, challenging course took the runners along country lanes, taking in some beautiful scenery of the Malverns and the River Severn. John Buck finished in 42.19 followed by Brian Pitt in 53.23 (1st MV75).
