Back to Black 10k – Wild Night Run Series
175 people took part in the Back to Black 10k on Saturday evening which is the last of 4 races in the Wild Night Run series. The race starts at Leigh Wood, a popular spot for night running. Not content with the 10k, Richard Marshall added on an extra mile (route markers are much harder to see in the dark!) finishing in 1:25:27. Well done Richard.
SMaRTT Smasher 10k
A fantastic result from Martyn Joyce at the SMaRTT Smasher 10k in Calne on Sunday. He finished 5th overall and picked up the prize for 1st MV40. He believes it was an unexpected result, but we at RSE know how hard he trains and it was fully deserved.
On a beautiful, crisp Sunday morning 10 RSE members ran in the Bourton 10k. A popular fast and flat course has definite PB potential and many members were able to take advantage of this. First home for the club was Ben Chapman who, after reviewing the photos, seemed to run the whole 6.2miles with a wonderful ear-to-ear smile upon his face! Fantastic work Ben 🙂 Special mention to Vicki Mason who took 3 mins off her previous PB and Linzi Gregory who ran for the first time in RSE colours. Thank you also to the fabulous support crew.
Ben Chapman 45:03; Nadine Brown 47:09 (PB); Ted Pitts 48:11; David Whitlow 48:22; Cheri Edwards 50:07 (PB); Wayne Edgington 52:24; Janet Daniels 53:54 (PB); Vicki Mason 54:02 (PB); Linzi Gregory 54:07 (PB) and Laura Butler 1:07:42. Excellent running everyone.
Seville Marathon boasts that it’s not only a fast course but it’s also one of the most beautiful circuits in the world, crossing the city centre and the main monuments of the ancient town. RSE Zoe Hammett took full advantage and finished in 4:04 – awesome work Zoe!
