Weekly Round Up – 5th August 2019

There was the usual strong turnout on Saturday morning for the regular Kingsbury Water Park parkrun.

First home for the club was Mark Webster who was 17th overall in a strong 19.41 mins. He was followed by Andrew Pickard in 22.16 mins, Ash Goodman (22.39), Dave Fern (24.13), Mike Shelton (24.17), Stuart Hatton (24.27), Simon Gordon (25.17), Neal Dempsey (27.15), Darren Truman (28.45), Darren O’Leary (29.20), Phil Neale (29.21), Sophie Galloway (30.01), Alison Upton (30.40) and Helen Dempsey (31.37). Sandra Ingram also volunteered to assist with the smooth running of the event.

Not content with just running parkrun several hardy Peelers ran from Fazeley to Kingsbury, ran parkrun and then ran back, making it around a half marathon distance. Well done Sophie Galloway, Darren Truman, Simon Gordon, Ash Goodman and Andrew Pickard.

On tour were Sarah French who completed the Conkers event in 32.47 mins, Laura McGrath who finished the Rodding valley parkrun in 27.20 mins and Jackie Tierney who stopped the clock at 28.34 mins at the Sixfields Upton event.

Neal and Helen Dempsey both completed the Cannock Chase 10k trail run in a time of 1:09.59 hrs and Lawrence Williamson finished in 20th place in the Cowman Middle Distance Triathlon. Martin Hollamby competed in the Peak Skyline 50k Ultra race finishing in 11th place overall in a time of 5:42 hrs.
