The summer sizzler strikes again...

This main event this week was the Cirencester 10k Summer sizzler! The club was hosting its ever-popular annual Cirencester 10k race and fun run. In Cirencester park's idyllic surroundings, this hilly traffic-free 10k is always very popular with members and locals alike. Some great times from club members and as always a HUGE thanks to those who helped marshalling - the race wouldn't happen without you!

Cirencester Park Summer Sizzler, 10km road - Bill Leggate 36.25 – 1st V45, Kate Jacobs 38.58 – 3rd lady / 1st FV45, David Wright 41.59 – 1st V65, Leo Crawford 42.51, Elysia Harrison 45.38, Isabella Stickney 47.27, Angela Hilditch 56.30.

Run Redditch Half Marathon, 13.1 miles road - Liza Darroch was running around Arrow Valley Park on the 6-lap course around the lake to complete this half marathon in 2.22.59 to achieve 1st FV75. Rupert Chesmore coming in just behind in 2.23.36 to bag 1st V65. Liza said that the lack of cars and glimpses of sailing and model boats made up for the venture north to the midlands for this multi-lap event. However, there are 2 small but noticeable hills on each lap so 12 hills to contend with in total and lots of sharp corners! Liza was pleased with her result as it was her first half this year and timing-wise was in the middle compared to the 6 half-marathons she completed last year!

David Wright competed at Alresford 10km, nr Winchester, finishing in 42.59 to secure his place as 1st V65.
