On Saturday, six North Herts Road Runners headed to the heart of running, Battersea Park in London to take part in the Sri Chimnoy 10k. Ben Sewell explained that the conditions were perfect, and the flat course made for perfect PB potential. And they certainly achieved that!
Sophie Thrussell was NHRR’s first lady over the line in a superb time of 40:59, followed by Emma Sandham who got a huge 1 minute 40 second PB of 46:21 following an extremely successful new training plan.
In the men’s race, Stewart Overton led the pack out for the first 4km, ultimately assisting three runners to huge PB’s. Ben Sewell crossed the line first, dipping just under 34 and a half minutes, in a time of 34:28, closely followed by Tom Barclay with a 35 second PB of 34:37. Shahab Ahmad followed with another PB coming home in 34:43 and Stewart Overton powered to the finish in 35:03. A shout out to Stewart for controlling the pace and leading the guys out for the first half!
Age Group Success By Nightlight
Elsewhere, six squirrels headed to Rutland Water to take part in the Rutland Water Nighttime 10k. Lucy O’Connor, Linda Aird, Miranda Morgan and Georgia Barker all achieved age group placing, with Lucy in 2nd place, Linda 1st, Miranda in 3rd and Georgia in 4th.
Jo Kenlin and Richard Barker also took part in the event. Lucy said it was a fab event and very popular with around 450 runners taking part. Plenty of runners choose to wear fairy lights and due to the out and back design of the course, many runners see a stream of lovely colourful lights as runners make their way back to the finish.
