Chris Illman scores a hat trick but Bill Leggate is on his tail.

CRO Running Week 3 5 miles and 2 km 12 April 2020

Chris Illman made it a hat trick, coming first again in this week’s CRO run. Chris stormed round his 5 mile loop with an average speed of 5:41 minute miling to finish in 28.27. As last week, Bill Leggate (8.34) was only seconds behind and Aaron Willis(29.55) was 3rd. However, once age was taken into account a new name (to CRO running) emerged victorious – but no-one who knows her will be surprised to see Kate Sackett (37.27) at the top of the list – pushing Liza Darroch (46.03), Bill and Ruth Fulford (48.47) down to 2nd , 3rd and 4th places. Ian Barrett (30.05) was in good form earning a 4th and 5th place and Sophie Chudley (33.35) continued to hold her own down under with a 5th and 6th. As in the two previous weeks over half of us scored over 70% in the age grading and no- one, not even our patient collector of results, Martin Croucher (41.53) who religiously sticks to his own long distance training plan, scored less than 50%.

The 2km option attracted three entries with Millie Chudley (8.28) and Izzie Chudley (9.56) setting the standards, (probably from the Sydney Harbour bridge or somewhere equally scenic) and Tony Kite (14.24) having a go for the first time.

Next week’s distances are 10 km and/or 1 mile. 10K is probably the most popular racing distance in “normal” times and we look forward to welcoming new names to the CRO running list and hope the many injuries and high pollen of this week improve. As last week your 10 k route should start and finish at the same place but the Mile can be a straight line and your times should be emailed to cirenacresults@gmail.com by 3pm Sunday 19th.

The following week will be back to the parkrun 5k distance and Martin is threatening to use our last 5k times to calculate a handicapped system so prepare to see Chris, Bill and Liza disappear off the board!
