This Week’s Racing – 15th May 2017

BERKELEY 10K

Well done to 8 RSE members who ran in the Berkeley 10k on Monday evening.  The fast, fairly flat course started at the power station and then took the runners on a 2 loop route around the country lanes of Berkeley.  First home for the club was Martin Pitts who finished in 46.13, followed by Elaine Chapman 46.56, Graham Aitchison 47.05, Kirsty Pitts 50.27, Tracey Pitts 59.44, Sallie Clatworthy 1.01.42, Pauline Tilbury 1.01.44 and Caroline Terry 1.13.15.
CADER IDRIS MOUNTAIN RACE
Brilliant running from Stephen Priestnall on Saturday when he competed in the Cader Idris Mountain race, which is described as one of the toughest fell races in Wales, the race is 10.5 miles long from Dolgellau to the summit of Cader Idris (2927ft), and then returns by the same route.  Well done to Steve who finished in 2hrs 17.
EXCALIBUR HALF MARATHON
Well done to Louise Abbott who competed in another gruelling fell race.  The Excalibur is a tough trail running event which took the runners on a spectacular course along the Clwydian range of North Wales, which includes 3200ft of ascent.  Brilliant running from Louise who finished in 3.31.57.
OXFORD GREENBELT 10K & SWINDON RACE FOR LIFE 10K
Impressive running from Elspeth Murano this weekend when she competed in 2 10k’s!  On Saturday she ran in the Oxford Greenbelt 10k, which is a fund raising event to send scouts to Kenya for them to carry out charity work.  And then on Sunday Elspeth ran in the Race for Life at Lydiard Park in Swindon. Well done Elspeth.
NORTHLEACH 10K
A sunny Sunday morning bought over 100 runners to the pretty town of Northleach to run in the 10k.  A very hilly, but beautiful course took the runners on a multi terrain route around the stunning countryside of the area.  First home for the club was Martin Pitts, followed by Paul Coates, Kirsty Pitts, Tracey Pitts, Ruth Herbert, Caroline Coates, Kate Potter, Tracy Edginton and Caroline Terry.  Also running in the 3k fun run and making a comeback was Sally Jamieson.  Well done to everyone.  (Results and more photos to follow…)
