Weekly Round Up – 15th January 2024

There’s nothing quite like setting yourself a challenge for the weekend and then going out and achieving that goal. For five Peel Road Runners that challenge was to tick off the letter ‘Z’ on their ‘alphabet of parkruns’, which meant a trip to Poland to run the Zamek w Malborku parkrun! Ian Orton crossed the line first for the club in 23:28, closely followed by Mark Boffey (23:58); Sarah Boffey (32:09); Jackie Tierney (34:14) and Michael Hughes (35:20).

Closer to home, Emma Pick ran the Rosliston parkrun in a time of 21:23; Caroline Evans ran at the Isobel trail, Stafford in 30:22 and Mike Shelton ran at Beacon Park, Lichfield (22:54). Kingsbury parkrun had a good turnout of Peelers with Phil Neale finishing in 24:00, followed by Darren O’Leary (25:26); Ben Dorkins (30:25); Claire Guffick (31:05); Lee Guffick (37:37); Roger Eastaff (37:41) and Wendy Bowyer (44:37). Finally, Tim Mudd crossed the line at the University of Northampton parkrun in 24:35; Garth Cox ran at Holbrooks, Coventry in 25:53, whilst Sophie Galloway (28:11) and Wendy Roe (31:14) represented the club at Tamworth Castle parkrun.

Canicross runner, Rob Mace, took part in the Canicross Midlands event at Solihull Riding Club over the weekend coming first in the two dog category, running the 5k course in 17 minutes on both days. Helen and Neal Dempsey also had good runs with podium finishes in their categories. Peel Road Runners welcome runners of all abilities and meet in the Skate Park car park every Tuesday at 6.45 pm (see website for further details).
