Peel Road Runner Ashley Baldwin ran a terrific race at the Leicestershire Half Marathon last weekend to finish in 6th place with a superb time of 1:17:18hrs for the 13.1 miles.
The race held at Prestwold Hall caught the eye of another Peel Road Runner, Helen Manton, who also had an impressive run finishing ahead of her projected time by a clear 5 mins as Helen finished with her time at 2:10:05hrs in the cold and windy conditions.
Omitted from the previous weeks results, Club Chairman Lee Rickards kicked off his New Year with a new PB when he ran the Centurion 5 mile race in a blistering time of 30:38mins and crossed the finish line in 7th place overall.
Last weeks Parkrun tourist was Michael Stevenson who travelled the short distance down the M40 to Stratford Upon Avon for his weekly 5k outing. Michaels finishing time was 29:04mins.
Meanwhile at Kingsbury Water Parkrun there were seven Peelers in attendance with Garth Cox the quickest on the day with his time for the 5k route at 24:04mins. George Hope was not too far behind with his 24:45mins. Behind George was Michael Shelton with his time of 25:16mins.
The Peel Road Runner women also braved the wet & chilly conditions with Sophie Galloway leading home a quartet of runners on the day with her time of 26:14mins. Stella Martin was next home with her time of 30:02mins, just ahead of Lisa Fletcher who ran a 30:29mins for her 5k and Caroline Evans with her time of 31:47mins.
