Club Night: Wednesday 7pm at Cascades Leisure Centre, Gravesend

22 June to 14 July 2014

I am sure that most of you were kept up-to-date on Facebook during my absence, but here are the last few weeks’ results for Istead members.

Four weekends of Parkruns had lots of our members out and about, and not just at Shorne Woods. Tim Bell set a couple of PBs and Barry and Joyce Bell have been trying out a few different Parkrun locations.

At the North Downs Run, high temperatures meant that times were a bit slower than usual, though Dan walsh, our first finisher was only a few seconds down on his last year’s time.

Elsewhere, Vikki Hill achieved a couple of PBs, over 5k and 10k distances at Medway and Romney March respectively.  Romney Marsh also had excellent results from our members, with Colin Whiteley 2nd MV45, Sarah Dand finishing as 2nd senior female, Vikki Hill as 2nd FV40 and Celia Poke 2nd FV50.

The second Joydens Wood event was held with Joe Cumberland finishing in an excellent 5th place, and Sue Beecham the first in her age group.

At the Bewl 15, which this year doubled up as the British Masters Multi-terrain Championships, there were two victories for our members. Our only entrants this year, Trevor Edgley and Jan Giles both won the British Championships in their age groups.

In addition to running the North Downs Run (twice!!), Steve Cable travelled to the hills of Andalucia to take part in the Al Andalus Trail Race Held over five days, this stage race is quite a challenge, taking in 230km of tracks in the hills around Alhama de Granada. Steve went off-course on stage 2 of the vent and was therefore excluded from the overall results. He did however finish in 3rd place on two of the stages.

Most recently, the club held their Half Marathon Championship in conjunction with the Dartford event. Prizes were won by Sue Beecham (3rd lady), Barry Bell (2nd MV60) and Barbara Ockendon (2nd FV55), though Mark Champion was our first finisher in 9th place overall.
