A CONTINGENT of 14 Running Forever members took part in Crewkerne RC’s Haselbury Trail 10K on Wednesday night.

First runner home was Chris Brown (40.35), followed by Jo Carritt, whose 45.08 earned her the first female finisher trophy.

Other finishers were Fintan Murray (48.23), Tanya Lewis (52.09), Sallie Durman (55.09), Nigel Baker (55.26), Brian Bandyszewski (59.00), Keely Sutton (59.23), Michael Glide (61.41), Mercedes Thorne (62.25), Richard Mackrory (65.00), Hannah Kirkman (66.50), Sally Tuer (67.46) and Brian Brown (73.30).

On Sunday, Georgina Brice earned herself a 50k PB of 6.30 at the Salisbury 54321 race festival.

Taking on the marathon distance were Emma Perkins (4.50), Bev Collins (4.51 and 3rd AG place) and Rob Murr (5.24 and 2nd AG finisher).

It was a RAT race of a different sort for Robin Upton, who took up the Plague 100k challenge at the Mud Crew event on the Cornish South Coast Path, completing this hilly event in 18.31.

Tanya Lewis clocked up a third place finish in her category at the Cotswold Middle Distance Triathlon with her 5.06 time.

Jo Carritt continued her winning streak with a first place finish at the Breca Buttermere short course event. Her team completed the 19K in 1.40.

Also on the podium at this event was Heather Pearce, whose team took third place in the 45K long course event with their 5.03 time.

The event involves a mix of swimming and running, with multiple transitions between them, and at Buttermere you can guarantee the run was hilly and the water chilly.

Parkrun tourists travelled to Minehead, Catterick, Winchester, Southwick Country, Bryn Bach, Seaton and Melksham last weekend.

Thirty-one took on the local course at Longrun Meadow.


IAN Salter assumed the Hydro Harriers’ Parkrun tourist mantle, with an impressive 19min 35sec at Medina last Saturday, finishing 17th from 383 runners.

Meanwhile, Andy White debuted at Chipping Sodbury, recording 21.03.

A cagey Longrun Meadow effort saw Rowland Lyons manage 26.38, with Simon Blunt home in 28.07.
