Weekly Round Up – 8th January 2024

With the festive season in full flow (and the local rivers too!), there haven’t been too many events to tempt Peel Road Runners into their trainers. However, at the fast and very competitive Wheaton Aston 10k road race in December, Wayne King finished his brilliant year of racing with a personal best performance, crossing the finishing line in an impressive 36:44.

After flooding had negatively affected local parkruns over Christmas and New Year, it was with some relief that the weekly running events could be held this week. Running on a slightly revised course to take into account the ground conditions in Tamworth Castle Grounds, Allen King was first home for the club in 22:46 followed by Rob Mace (23:04); Phil Neale (23:35); Chris Bennett (25:00); Ian Orton (25:15); Tim Clark (25:41) and Sophie Galloway (34:21). Emma Pick was the sole Peeler at Conkers stopping the clock on 21:58. At Kingsbury Water Park, Wayne King was first finisher in a time of 19:15, followed by Luke Collins (20:27); Mike Shelton (22:07); Darren O’Leary (24:24); Claire Guffick (29:28); Stella Taylor (29:40); Joy Sykes (32:20); Emma Whorwood (33:24); Ann Hill (43:48); Sarah French (43:50); Alison Dolphin (43:52) and Lee Guffick (45:04). At Sutton Park Simon Gordon finished in 25:27 and Jackie Tierney in 28:42. Meanwhile, Garth Cox ran at Chasewater in 25:40; Michael Hughes ran at Severn Valley in 43:00; Tim Mudd ran at Babbs Mill in 24:54; Mick Stevenson ran at Warwick Racecourse in 35:43; Steph Attenborough ran at Oaklands in 29:51 and Wendy Roe ran at Beacon Park in 33:03.
