News - Week commencing 7 September 2014

There were a few more Istead runners out and about this weekend. Unusually, the local Parkrun at Shorne didn’t attract the most runners. That honour went to the Charing 10k, which was also the 7th event in the club’s Captain’s Trophy.

First home for the club at Charing, was Dan Walsh, in an excellent second place overall, and our first lady at the same race was Jackie King. A few prizes were won by the club, including I believe both men’s and ladies’ Team prizes and some age category prizes.

We had seven runners at Shorne on Saturday, with Steve Cable leading home our men and Sally George first home for our ladies. Other Parkrunners at the weekend were Mark Champion at Maidstone, with another sub-18 run and Chris Gregory at Great Lines. Over the last three weeks we have also had Gillian Calliste running two Bluewater Time Trials and a Cyclorun, and Steve Mitchell running in two Cycloruns.

There were quite a few other events on at the weekend, both across the local region and up in the North East, with full results given below.
