Featured events this month:

Firkin 5 - Hook Norton - 20 May

13 Spencer Davies 39:01
50 Martin McHugh 43:51

This was the inaugural Firkin 5 race and the weather on the build up to it caused some of the off-road sections to resemble a cross-country course. Not put off, Martin and I headed down to represent the club and show support for new events. What a gem we found, fast roads and technical off-road sections gave a great feeling of being involved in something special. The free food and pint afterwards made it even more worthwhile.
Definitely something to recommend the next time it's on - Spencer

A great day spent in the Cotswolds with tremendous team spirit and fantastic team management by all. It was good to see a contribution from all 4 levels at the club epitomising this event as a TEAM event for all. It started in a downpour and finished in the usual oven conditions.
Well done all.
Roll on next year - Spencer


Bosworth Half-Marathon - 14 May

Stratford Marathon - 7 May

77 Mark Baker 3:25:14  
156 Tommy Dempsey 3:43:30  
165 Dave Halford 3:45:28  
203 Kevin Coughlan 3:52:13 PB
412 Spencer Davies 4:29:39  
445 Mike Duggan 4:34:43  

Fourteen club members made the short trip to run round Shakespeare's homeland, 8 doing it once (Half-Marathon) and 6 taking on the double challenge (The Marathon).

On what was billed as a perfect day in the mid-week weather forecasts, heavy cloud and a slight northerly breeze became bright sunshine by 9am on a day that just became very warm. So, instead of temperatures ranging from 9 to 14 degrees, by 11am it was already well over 16 degrees and rising. Even so some were able to ride the unexpected heat wave, turning in one Marathon PB and two PB's in the Half-Marathon.

It was my first Stratford Marathon and 3rd ever, and I have to say I would do it again. I was more than happy with my PB, taking almost 3 minutes off my Paris run in 2016. Being a two lap route there was the extra mental battle with knowing we had to run up the hill just past Welford twice but we were rewarded with panoramic views and village after village of thatched cottages, mowed greens and spring flowers. In amongst all of this were the Northbrook support crews with Joe, Sarah and Craig on the Long Marston Road and Jo and Rachel popping up twice on the "baking hot" Greenway with invaluable cheers of encouragement at mile 23, plus Tom Miller, Tony Forde and the Houstons holding fort at the start and finish.

Roll on the 2018 season - Kevin
