RSE Race Report – Family, Feats and Fantastic Scenery

Gower Ultra 50

Following the Wales coastal path around the Gower Peninsula, this trail run takes in some incredible views as runners cross cliffs, beaches, farmland and marsh terrain.

RSE’s Sarah Reynolds entered the race, finishing in a brilliant time of 11:45:58 and 4th lady overall!

The first half was relatively flat along marshland but in the second half the hills kept coming, lots of them on soft sand which was very challenging! It was my first 50 mile race and I loved it – stunning scenery and perfect weather. Carol and Andy came to support and Carol ran with me for a bit.

Sarah would like to give a huge thank you to Carol and Andy for their support!

Congratulations Sarah on a brilliant run!

Yorkshire Marathon

The York Marathon is a popular one amongst runners, offering a one lap course around the historic sights of York as well as the surrounding countryside. The route is mainly flat with great support from the crowds.

Completing her 10th marathon was RSE’s Linda Edwards! Linda finished in a brilliant time of 4:44:18, smashing her sub 5 hour goal.

This was my 10th marathon and undoubtedly the hardest physically. The marathon runs past York Minster with the bells ringing which was quite atmospheric. A lovely marathon and really well supported and organized. I also ran a nice warm up York park run at the racecourse on Saturday. Anyone not doing a marathon the day after should try this one as its a PB park run course and flat.

Linda Edwards

Well done Linda on 10 marathons! Did you remember to ‘do the Y’ at the end?

Centurion Autumn 100

Not content with running 2 marathons in 2 weeks, RSE’s Sarah Hancock took on an even longer challenge for her 3rd week of races. The Centurion Autumn 100 is based in the twinned villages of Goring and Streatley on the river Thames. The difficulty of the run is stressed on the website, pointing to the dramatically changing conditions dependant on weather.

Sarah completed an incredible 75 miles of the course! Fantastic work, Sarah!

Great South Run

Taking place in Portsmouth, the Great South run follows a fast and flat 10 mile course along the coast and through the city. Runners past iconic sites including the HMS Victory and Spinnaker Tower. The Great South race weekend attracts thousands of participants, making a fantastic race atmosphere.

Running for RSE was Paul Coates, who ran with his son, Dan.

The course was good flat and fast, with perfect running weather, great atmosphere and support, and a run along the sea coming to the finish line. [I was] supported by Caroline on grandma duties and my granddaughter Florence.

Paul Coates

What a perfect family day out!

Paul finished in 1:25:42 – a new course record! Congratulations, Paul!
