There were ghostly goings on at a distinctly wintry Kingsbury Water park run on Saturday morning with many runners dressing up in fiendish halloween costumes to add some atmosphere to proceedings.
First home for the Peelers was Martin Hollamby in 22.26 minutes, accompanied by his daughter in a pram! Next home was Garth Cox in 24.35 followed by Mark Boffey (24.54), Dave Fern (25.42), Jackie Tierney (27.53) and Ian Grigg in 29.37. New member Wendy Bowery was next home in 35.14, followed by Lisa Fletcher (35.31), Caroline Evans (36.31), Simon Gordon (37.20), Darren Cotton (37.26) and Allan Williams in 38.25 mins.
On their travels were Andrew Pickard who completed the Sheffield Concord parkrun in a very impressive 20.43 mins, securing sixth place overall. Closer to home Marie Llewellyn completed the Conkers parkrun in a very respectable 22.59 mins.
The club is pleased to announce that a new ‘Bridge to 10k’ course will start during the week commencing 12th November, meeting at the Snowdome. The entry criteria for the course is that you can already run 5km and have been running 2-3 times a week recently. Peel Road Runners are running the course in partnership with Tamworth Borough Council and are able to offer this course free of charge.
It will be a 10 week course based upon three runs a week progressing gradually from 5km to 10km. One run a week will be with a running coach from the club and further coaching offered to improve your running technique.
