Joe Cumberland & Simon Parrin ran the Dawn to Dusk Challenge, Joe came 4th after
completing 38 laps and Simon came 12th after completing 30 laps but I have no idea
how far they ran.
Sue Beecham & Joyce Bell tackled the Christams Cracker 5 down at Fowlmead recording
times of 39.47 & 46.14 respectively.
Jonathan Crowle, Clare Holder & Carly Jameson all finished the year in style with
the Staplehurst 10. Jonathan finishing first for Istead in 1:28.39 and Clare & Carly
coming in together in 1.30.21.
On the 2nd Jan Susan Holland & Gillian Calliste did the QEOP monthly 10k finishing
in 57.01 & 1.06.20, I really must do that race one month.
Then last Thursday on a nippy evening we had 7 runners at the Cyclopark Floodlit
series, in the 10k I led home in 38.17 from Joe Cumberland in 38.33, Steve Ball in
43.16, Vikki Hill 55.09, Fay Oram 57.07 & Liz Vassell 1.05.53 & in the 5k Barbara
won the ladies race in a very pleasing time of 25 mins dead.
Finally, Istead’s own Duracell Bunny Liz Vassel has run 4 Marathons (Saxon Shore
Marathon, Usual Suspects, Portsmouth and the Fowlmead Challenge, Steve, Sadie & Kulwinder
joined Liz on this one, but I’m not sure how far they ran.)
GP update to follow in a day or so, and as Marathon Season approaches I suspect the
Road Running will take off and the reports will become more regular once more..
