A bit strange this bank holiday weekend not having the Sutton Runners 10Km event happening. Our esteemed Club Chairman
Graham took advantage of the free date and is certainly going through a purple (or should I say gold) patch at the moment; on Sunday at the Ranelagh Richmond Half Marathon he finished in 59th position overall. He achieved gold club standard award in the Male Vet 50 category as he smashed the 90 minutes barrier… Tim Mc, in the same category, must be getting worried! Aeron Smith also had a great run finishing in 1hr 43m 02s. They were joined by a rapidly improving Clare who beat the 2 hours mark easily after dipping under 1hr 58m.
At the local Dave Denton 5km event at Nonsuch park on Thursday 3rd May we had a lower turnout than usual
from Sutton Runners than in previous years but still Kevin Lusignea finished an excellent 2nd place out of 71 runners.
Kevin was just behind the winner from Sutton & District, and 2nd claim Sutton Runner Alex Penfold. First female back
from Sutton Runners was Leah Philbrick in 22m 40s. Well done all. As an aside please note this particular race results will not be considered for club achievement awards results as it is believed to be a slightly short course.
On Wednesday 2nd May Jonathan Pegg ran his way in the “Your Way” 5km event when finishing in 28m 12s.
At the parkruns we had people participating in the Sheffield, Dulwich, Banstead, Nonsuch and Riddlesdown Events. Only one person, Kathryn Chisholm in 23m 26s managed a parkrun personal best this week. Congrats Katherine!
