August Round-Up

 Mon Sep 07 2009, 07:11pm, 0 comments
As predicted last month, August was an unusally quiet month for UKnetrunner. Perhaps we were all enjoying our holidays, or maybe races weren't booked in case of a hot summer! The latter may have been wishful thinking but there was still enough activity to see some good performances.

Matt Dunn still leads the way in the Grand Prix despite a quiet month of only 2 races, one of which was the offroad "Hard as Snails" 10k.

Personal Bests
5k: Krissie Newton (23:24), David Kindred (21:47)
10k: Jon Hullis (39:19), Steve Gunn (47:23), Wendi Witton (1:02:35)

Distance Debuts
12k: Mike Hudson (1:22:20)

Brigitte Groves & Wendi Witton: Ran the Cotswold way
Krissie Newton: Completed another triathlon
Dean Ward: Ran his longest race to date - the Belper Rugby Rover 30km
