Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow……this weekend it snowed!


Oh before it snowed there were some runs done mainly on Saturday and mainly at local parks, well 2 local ones and 1 of them is more seafront than park…….anyway, cutting to the chase we had 17 runners at parkrun this week with Colchester Castle park seeing the majority so I’ll start there. Mags Komorowska and Tom Komorowski both hit course PB’s this week in a very cold run in Colchester finishing in 25:44 and 24:27 respectively. Continuing on the comeback trail was Rich Moor who finished first of the blue vests this week in 23:31, it was also good to see Claire Groves out running this weekend she finished in 30:45. Following Rich home were James McCullagh (25:57), Claudia Keitch (27:53), Scott Young (27:54), Paul Hollidge (27:54) and Ade Cherry (37:39).

Over at Clacton Seafront there seemed to be a Bentley race between Rob Thorpe (23:48), Patrick Reynolds (23:49), Kevin James (23:56) and Brian Telford (23:59), however, leading them home (before being distracted by the snow) was Ben Ficken and Janice who recorded a time of 20:59. Alison Clarke (30:27) and Sandra James (35:15) completed the Bentley representation.

Our only tourist this week was Nick Goodman who ventured out to Rutland Water to complete the 5k there in 24:50.

The final run to tell you about was a 5 mile Hash Social run in Boxted which Mags, Tom and Neil Robins completed.

Then it snowed………Ben got distracted and people set off on training runs as everything else was cancelled……and that’s it 😀
