Weekly Round Up – 11th December 2023

The Sneyd Striders Christmas Pudding Run is a classic road race organised by a local running club, so guaranteed to be runner-friendly and good value for money. The 10 mile two lap course (slightly over distance this year due to an unforeseen police incident) is seen as fast and so it proved today for several Peelers who achieved personal bests over the distance. Wayne King was first across the line for the club in a personal best time of 1:00:54 and 4th in M45-49 age category. Club Chairman, Lee Rickards, was next to finish also in a personal best time of 1:03:25 and 6th in the M40-45 age category, followed by Allen King (1:17:35); Chris Bennett (1:24:11); Lorna Carlin (1:31:08); Helen Chyla (1:33:26) and Natalie Walker (1:33:27).

At the Night at the Museum indoor marathon at Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, Steph Attenborough completed the 46 lapped event in a time of 5:47:43.

Running at Druridge Bay in Northumberland, Joy Sykes took on the traildog 6.5 km race with Charlie and Bob finishing in a time of 44:57.

With Tamworth parkrun cancelled due to course flooding, Peelers had to travel further afield for their Saturday parkrun challenges. Running at Brueton, Chris Bennett completed his 250th parkrun in a time of 24:21; Sarah Boffey (29:27) ran at Graves, Sheffield and Joy Sykes (31:43) at Blyth Links. Running at Kingsbury, Mike Shelton finished in 21:55 followed by Luke Collins (23:57); Darren O’Leary (25:34); Sophie Galloway (28:05); Jackie Tierney (29:50); Claire Guffick (30:08); Lee Guffick (41:26); Roger Eastaff (41:27); Alison Dolphin (57:40); Sarah French (57:41) and Wendy Bowyer (57:41). Meanwhile Emma Pick (22:40); Garth Cox (26:24) and Mark Boffey (39:53) ran at Sutton Park; Mick Stevenson (34:30) at Warwick Racecourse; Ian Orton (23:45) ran at Peel, Salford; Tim Mudd (27:22) at Beacon Hill and Steph Attenborough (39:32) and Michael Hughes (47:11) at Sense Valley, Ibstock.
