This week marked a threshold for the club as we reached 100 active members for the first time. This puts the club in a healthy position for the future.
With Kingsbury Water Park once again only suitable for swimming, enforced parkrun tourism was the order of the day on Saturday morning.
The best attended was the Conkers parkrun with Andrew Pickard first home for the club in a time of 21.23 mins. Sophie Galloway (32.06), Alison Dolphin (37.35) and Chrstine Norris (39.37 mins) also enjoyed the outing.
Garth Cox was first home at the Bedworth event in a time of 24.10 mins, ahead of Emma Whorwood (34.02) and Wendy Bowyer (34.16). Mike Shelton was the sole club representative at Sutton Park, finishing in a time of 22.47 mins. Tim Mudd completed the Chasewater Park Run in 25.52 mins and Michael Stevenson finished the Warwick Racecourse parkrun in 30.06 mins. Jackie Tierney completed the new Oaklands, Yardley event in 27.29 mins and both Stella Martin (27.43) and Chris Taylor (29.39) attended the Pontypridd parkrun in South Wales.
The Rutland Night 10k event took place on Saturday night. The event was won by Ash Baldwin in a new personal best time of 35.32 mins. Sarah French also ran, finishing in 1:14.39 hrs.
Val Lawson completed the Derby 10 mile race on Sunday in soggy conditions in a time of 1:38.14 hrs. Tom Fair (54.03 mins), Mark Boffey, (58.30 mins), Claire Guffick (1:02.57 hrs, personal best) and Lee Guffick (1:08.25 hrs, also a PB) completed the Mo run charity 10k in Sutton Park.
