After dire forecasts the weather was kind to us all at the Standalone 10K said Spartan ANDREW PATTERSON.  He continued, “My time of 35:02 was a 24 second PB, there was a good pack of lead runners who helped pull me a long to a respectable time and I was happy to sneak inside the top 10.”

A fantastic 65 Fairlands Valley Spartans completed the race.

The Spartans other sub forty men were PAUL HEWETT 39th in 38:12; DAVID HARRIS-CHERGUIT 44th in 38:27; KEITH COUGHLIN 46th in 38:35 and DEAN CARPENTER 54th in 39:08.

The fastest Spartan women was the amazing YUKO GORDON who won the 65 plus contest with 43 minutes 58 seconds.  She was 149th out of the 1335 finishers.

Bournemouth

Spartan EVA RAMSEY completed the Bournemouth Half finishing 35th out 1712 women in a personal best (PB) of 1:38:45, knocking a massive 6 minutes and 40 seconds off her previous PB.

John Nelms and new Spartan Chloe Chapman both travelled to the south coast for the Bournemouth marathon on Sunday.

A blustery but dry day and a course with quite a few ‘rolling hills’ made for an enjoyable day out, with runners doing an out and back on both piers and the last 8 miles running along the promenade in full sunshine.   Chloe completed her first ever 26.2 in a great time of 5.22.  John finished his 70th marathon in 4.15.

 

Half At Havering

GERRY ROSEN took part in the inaugural Havering Half Marathon on Sunday and finished in 2:33:19.
