New Years Day racers

The Club had a few members of the middle distance squad competing over 10km in the New Year’s Day 10km in Hyde Park in a balmy 15 degrees!

Damian Nevins placed 4th in 33:25. Jack Whitebury was next home in a brilliant 33:58 run for 8th place – a road pb by exactly 3 minutes. Mark Smith also had an excellent run and was well inside his sub 40 mins target running 38:56 for 61st place. Rob Hawkes was another who smashed his pb – this time by over 4 minutes as he secured 69th position in 39:37. Peter Butler had a solid run in 140th with a time of 45:56.

As the Clubs centenary year draws to a close, members can still purchase a copy of the commemorative booklet produced to celebrate our unique history. The booklet is a fascinating read detailing our origins, Club Olympians and international successes, the drive to achieve National League status and the amalgamation with Parkside ladies to form the Club we are today. Copies are a modest £10 – contact Mike Lepps to secure your copy!
