The Swindon Half Marathon race was the 6th race in the Endurance Expert championship 2018. The RSE representation was fantastic with 8 men and 8 ladies finishing in club colours.
A fairly flat course (apart from a fairly pesky hill just when you want it at mile 11!) meant for some great times and some smashing PB’s. Well done to all runners.
First in for the men was Tom Cooper securing 10 points. The top 3 was completed with Andy Masser in 2nd place with 9 points and Dave Daniels in 3rd with 8 points.
Tom has the top spot secured but there’s change in 2nd and 3rd place with Andy Masser still in 2nd but the 8 points from Dave Daniels means he’s now in 3rd place. Well done chaps!
- Tom Cooper 50 points (60 points overall)
- Andy Masser 31 points
- Dave Daniels 23 points
In the ladies we had Sharon Smith in 1st place picking up another 10 points, with Nadine coming 2nd securing 9 points and continuing her strong season, in 3rd place was Ellie Taylor.
It’s tight at the top of the ladies competition with just a couple of chances for the positions to change. Some runners haven’t completed their 5 races yet and there’s still opportunity for those that have run 5 to improve on their current points, so it really is all still to play for. As it stands we’ve got…
- Nadine Brown 48 points (57 points overall)
- Sharon Smith 37 points
- Elaine Chapman 37 points
- Ellie Taylor 32 points
Fantastic running ladies!
We’ve got a few weeks off until our next endurance race which is our club handicap race at the Cricklade Half in October, so we’ll expect to see some different names and the chance to rack up some potentially valuable points all around.
Great running to every single one of you.
