Weekly Round Up – 10th October 2022

With the autumn marathon season upon us, many Peelers have been training hard for events all over the UK but this Sunday Michael Hughes crossed continents to record a personal best time in the Chicago marathon, finishing in an impressive 4:25:55. 

With autumn upon us and supposedly cooler weather, the Canicross racing season has started again. Rob Mace was out on the trails at the Midlands Canicross Short Course event held at Box Park, Bedford. He came third running with Base in the mile event (shortened course due to warm conditions), recording times of 6.09 and 6.58. Clara Walton also ran at the Novice event with Nanook finishing in 8.05 and 8.03.

At the weekend’s parkruns, a good contingent of Peelers headed to Kingsbury for their weekly fix! First over the finish line for the club was Ben Dorkins in a time of 22:36 and 16th place overall. Next to finish was Mike Shelton in 25:23, followed by Judith Matthews (25:24); Jason Church (25:44); Sophie Galloway (26:09); Garth Cox (27:17); Stella Taylor (28:24); Chris Bennett (28:42); Allen King (28:46); Darren Truman (28:49); Roger Eastaff (30:01); Jackie Tierney (31:00); Ann Hill (32:17); Martyn Candy (33:59); Chris Norris (48:18) and Alison Dolphin (59:37).
