Half Marathon Madness!

Great Bentley runners competed in three different half marathons last weekend; Brentwood, Coventry and Stowmarket. At Brentwood, Charlie Keitch put in a sterling effort to run a new personal best(PB) and break the 1:25 barrier. He finished in 45th place overall out of 3500 runners in 1:24:32, a silver club age group standard. Sophie Apps was also there, finishing in 1:48:00.
At Stowmarket, runners were Malcolm Jarvis 1:37:28(PB) and Paul Blackwell 1:56:05.
Coventry saw Laura Emms cross the line in 1:53:15.
Club Chairman Clive Jones travelled to Italy to take part in the Rome Marathon, clocking 3:49:20.
At the Colchester Castle Parkrun, 8 year old rising star Harrison Leek clocked another new PB, running home in just 26:48, taking 2nd place in the under 10s. He was accompanied by Dad Shawn Leek, who will soon be struggling to keep up. Joe Alexander won the race once again, this time in 17:24. Scott Young also ran in 22:55.
