RSE Club Report – New Year, New Running Challenge!

Gloucestershire County XC Championships – Cotswold Farm Park

Starting in the bumpy fields, athletes ran a medium lap around ruins ground and Barton bushes. They then completed 2 large laps including the field north of Gorse valley finishing again in bumpy fields. Conditions were as expected of a cross country race, very muddy in places! But the sun was shining for the senior male race.

David Witnall ran for Running Somewhere Else, finishing the 9.5k course in a great time of 41:05!

Great fun as usual- it’s not about the position or finish times. It’s for the challenge and the grind that cross country offers. Club members should give it a go just once. It’s not as bad as you think!!

Dave Witnall

Brilliant running, Dave!

Fladbury Festive 5

This 5 mile multi-terrain race takes place along the banks of the River Avon. Runners cross through Fladbury Village and Lower Moor in Worcestershire for a mainly off-road race. Only in its 8th year, Fladbury Festive 5 has become popular amongst local runners, particularly for the free gift and refreshments at the end of the run!

Liz Hulcup took on the challenge and finished in a brilliant unofficial time of 55:11, coming first her age category!

It was actually 5.5 miles, mainly trail run, so muddy, and a nasty cold wind …

Liz Hulcup

Well done, Liz!

RSE Club Report – We All Like Figgy Pudding!

Westonbirt House Christmas 10k

The last day of the year saw runners take on the beautiful grounds of Westonbirt House for a festive 10k. The race follows 2-laps through the House grounds and is mainly on road/pathways, although 1.5k crosses trail/grass.

Several RSE members took on the challenge, ending the festive season in running style! We particularly loved the Christmas pudding outfits worn by Linda, Cathy and Sarah!

  • Louise Hayes – 1:05:44
  • Linda Edwards – 1:09:41
  • Cathy Steer – 1:09:41
  • Sarah Page – 1:09:42
  • Charlie Austin – 1:20:47

Myself, Sarah and Cathy ran the Westonbirt Christmas 10k today which was rescheduled due to the snow. It poured down and we were nice and snug on the start line. The sodden puddings however gained some weight in water as we ran the two loop course. It was great fun and well supported despite the weather. We were also joined by another pudding friend from Dursley running club.

Linda Edwards

A huge congratulations to everyone who ran!

RSE Club Report – It’s the parkrun Cup Final – and the winner is…

A WEEKEND OF FINALS

Overshadowing the World Cup final this afternoon, was a more important and more unique finale – the RSE PARKRUN CUP FINAL 2022!!

This year it was contested by Linda Edwards and Vicki Mason.

To celebrate the occasion, a snowy Cirencester parkrun was descended on by our club members, some running, some volunteering and some there to support our finalists.

The parkrun cup started back in June with 30 competitors taking part. Each draw, 2 runners competed head to head on a handicap basis. It was excellent to see so many people getting involved with the cup and improving round on round. As we reached our final stages, it was inevitable that PBs were harder to come by, so congratulations to all runners for the times they achieved! I will post the full parkrun cup ladders after Ellie posts the club report so you can all see the fantastic progression of the runners!

David Witnall, parkrun cup organiser

And so to the winner… RSE would like to give a huge congratulations to our 1st ever parkrun cup winner:

Vicki Mason!!!

The 2023 parkrun cup will start in March. If you would like to enter or would like further information, message David Witnall.
