17 RSE Members took part in the Wiltshire 10 on a beautiful Sunday morning. The route follows a gently undulating course through rural Wiltshire and loops around the historic village of Lacock before following the River Avon back to the finish in Melksham. The course is capable of producing fast times and many RSE runners took advantage of this, producing a number of PBs.
Tom Cooper 1:04:51(PB); Jack Pitcher 1:09:08 (PB); David Witnall 1:11:10; Emily Jefferies 1:15:58 (PB); Nadine Brown 1:18:43 (PB); Elaine Chapman 1:19:36; Jon Lewis 1:19:49; Martin Pitts 1:21:37; Teresa Hazelwood 1:21:58 (PB); Graham Aitchison 1:23:27; Jo Wood 1:25:37; Cheri Edwards 1:26:23 (PB); Paul Coates 1:28:55; Kirsty Pitts 1:29:52; Sarah Gray 1:41:15; Becca Wilson 1:41:20 (PB) and Laura Butler 1:57:23. Congratulations to you all!
Bath Skyline 10k
Sarah Reynolds described the Bath Skyline as the muddiest, slippiest and hilliest 10k she’d ever done but fun none-the-less and achieved 1:04 in these tough conditions. Well done Sarah!
684 people took part in the Bramley 20 mile race in Reading. RSE’s Andy Masser took part in this one finishing in 2:42:12. Awesome effort Andy!
The Slaughter Valentines 10k
New member Steve Phelps ran this scenic run in and around the beautiful Cotswold hills and through the villages of Lower and Upper Slaughter. The route featured a lot of long uphill stretches on the country roads so provided good training opportunities. Steve finished in a time of 49:11 (awaiting official confirmation). Great work Steve!
