Round 2 of the club Road Championship and its the John Carr 5k Series. The first 3 Wednesdays in May over the same course with your best time from the 3 races counting for club points.
This year we had a different route from last year but it still included the hill this time in the last mile and is still a fast course with a very fast field of runners. Last year 11 Harriers made it to the first race and in total 37 which happened to be the number that made it to the first race this year (17 men and 20 ladies).
First Harrier home was Philip Goose in 27th and a time of 17.37. He hadn’t done much since his marathon success and know he can go faster in the future weeks but will still take some beating in the Premier division.
Chris Smith came home next in 49th and a time of 18.34 while 55th and the first of the many HPH PB’s was Aron Hinds in a storming 18.39 and 1st division 1 runner home.
1 minute later and first 2nd division runner home was Nick Payne followed not to long later by Mark Haddrill in 19.48 and his first sub 20 5k.
Other PB’s for the men that I know to were Graeme Miles, Paul Dickens, Andrew Maddock and Richard Edwards.
1st lady HPH home and a new PB was Rebecca Gray in 20.15 and looking good for a top Premier League time. Amy Young was next in a very good 21.00 and leading 2nd division lady, 33 seconds ahead of Naomi Kellett.
Emma Brown was next to finish in 23.16 and a new PB, and only 13 seconds ahead of Matilda Rhodes and her new 42 second PB and a good early time in the 1st division.
Some great results through out the field including a stunning 90 seconds PB by Alison Pullan.
2 more races to get a time on the board, still plenty to play for.
Many thanks to Philip Bland and Ian Watson for the pics.
