There's been quite a lot going on this week. 10k's, several fell races, league action, a celebration milestone Parkrun outing...and more PB's.
Saturday morning saw the return of the undulating and multi terrain Wollaton Park 10k race where we were represented by Ian Hunter. He finished in a fantastic 4th position overall in a time of 39:14...Great running Ian!
24 IRC runners and crew turned out to Long Eaton's West Park on Saturday morning to support and celebrate with fellow team mate Sue Bates in completing her 50th parkrun!
Well done Sue that's a great achievement. It was lovely to see so many IRC vests running around together and crossing the line at the same time. Certainly gave the timekeepers something to think about!
Well done also to John Queenan & Simon Kirk, both picked up PB's and came 2nd in their categories and to Natalie Braisby who came 1st in category while on Parkrun tour in Penrose!
Andy Murray ran in the Man versus Horse race in Wales. A 24 mile, multi terrain race through the mountainous terrain of the Welsh countryside...whilst being chased by horses! He did an awesome job finishing in a great time of 4:43:49
On Sunday Richard Iliffe and Chris O'Donnel ran the 9.7 hilly miles of the Passing Clouds Fell race. I think the name of the race says it all! Richard was 86th in 1:42:28 & Chris 121st in 1:53:02.
Brendan Moor ran in the Edale Fell race, round 3 of the Gritstone race series. A 4.7 mile race with over 1300ft of climbs.
Well done guys great effort!
