Weekly Round Up – 29th May 2023

Advertised as the second largest marathon in the UK after London and a ‘fast and flat course with PB potential’ by Runner’s World magazine, the Edinburgh marathon was the place to be for Peel Road Runner Tim Mudd. Living up to its billing, Mudd ran a personal best time of 4:13:45 knocking 9 minutes of his previous marathon best time.

Meanwhile, Catherine Tieley travelled north of the border to take on the Edinburgh half marathon, another race route renowned for its potential for personal best times! Tieley did not disappoint and crossed the finish line in a personal best time of 1:54:29, another great result for Peel!

At the Buxton half marathon, Steph Attenborough ran the definitely not fast and flat course and finished in 2:31:02. The scenic road route with 1549 ft of ascent over its 13.1 miles would prove a challenge for any runner, let alone one who had run as a ‘sweep runner’ at the Wuthering Heights Wander trail half marathon in Yorkshire the previous day! 

Continuing his season of impressive running, Wayne King took on the midweek Beeston AC Trent 5 road race in Nottingham, finishing in 29:56, 13th place overall and 7th in MV40 age category in a very competitive field.

At Saturday’s parkruns, Kingsbury drew a good number of Peelers. James Stretton was first home for the club in a time of 19:39, followed by Darren O’Leary in 23:45; Lisa Stretton (24:14); Judith Matthews (25:03); Claire Guffick (29:40); Roger Eastaff (31:44); Joy Sykes (32:29); Lee Guffick (35:24); Alison Perry (35:48); Ann Hill (36:10); Wendy Bowyer (36:11); Laura Bowyer (39:58) and Alison Dolphin (43:14).
