Weekly Round Up – 19th July 2021

Temperatures of 31° and high humidity did nothing to dissuade some enthusiastic Peel Road Runners from taking on road and trail challenges last weekend.

Travelling north west to Chester, Malcolm Bembridge ran the popular Aldi Chester 10k finishing in a time of 48:14, which put him in 26th place in a very competitive M50 category. Overall he finished 359th out of a total field of 2232 runners.

Closer to home, four Peelers ran the Brooksie’s Bash 10 mile trail race based at Foremarke Hall in Repton. This scenic and undulating course raises awareness and funds for the charity Mind (Derbyshire) and appeals to runners of all abilities. Wayne King was first Peeler to cross the finish line in a time of 1:12:25, which put him in 8th place overall and 4th in the M40 category. Next Peeler home was Emma Pick who finished in a time of 1:22:41, 4th lady and 2nd in the FSEN age category. She was closely followed by Zac Gibbons in a time of 1:25:40, 30th overall and 12th in the MSEN age category. Carl Hole-Maloney had a brilliant race; the Bash being his first trail race and his first 10 mile race. He finished in a creditable time of 1:44:56 and 113th overall out of a total of 242 runners, stating that it was the hardest running event he had ever done!
