RSE Club Report – Stormtroopers, famous cathedrals and the longest day of the year!

Chippenham Longest Day 10k

Starting and finishing in the town centre, this flat course follows the quiet country lanes around Chippenham. Held on the longest day of the year, it was unsurprisingly a hot run, despite starting late in the evening.

Running for RSE was Pauline Tilbury, who finished the course in a brilliant time of 1 hour 7 minutes!

It was still 24 degrees at 19:30 but luckily there were a few shady kms along the course!

Pauline Tilbury

Well done, Pauline!

Gloucester 10k

This predominantly flat course follows roads, footpaths and towpaths in the heart of Gloucester, to give runners a tour of the cathedral, quays, canal and docks. Organised by Tewkesbury RC, the race boasts a community feel and chance for some running tourism!

Well done to Richard Edwards, who completed the course in a new PB time of 58:04, and Jess James, who finished in a brilliant time of 1:00:26!

I ran the Gloucester 10k with my daughter, Jen. My time was 58:04, which is my quickest 10k. The course was flat and the weather was sunny but not hot. I am looking forward to running another 10k soon as my times are improving.

Richard Edwards

Fantastic running both of you!

Torbay Half Marathon

This popular seaside half marathon comprises of a two lap course, starting and finishing on Paignton Green. Runners are treated en route to stunning views of the coast, the historic Torre Abbey and the Princess Gardens.

RSE’s Tim Wainwright takes on the course every year!

I love this half as many at out club know. I didn’t get the miles in prior to the day but still thoroughly enjoyed a great coastal race. After attempting 4 times to beat the famous Torbay stormtrooper, I finally beat him today!

Tim Wainwright

Congratulations to Tim who completed the course in 2 hours and 5 minutes!
