Stuart cocks done Stevenage half marathon this morning totally buzzing got new pb 1.43.58 knocking nearly a minute of my old time was a nice course 😁👊💪👍🐿

Re: Press report for week ending 4 Nov 2018

This morning (Sunday 4th) I completed the Histon Bonfire Burn 10k. It was my first race as a squirrel and I'm pleased to report that I got a personal best of 51.02, knocking over a minute and a half off my previous 10k record. It's a good 10k if you are looking for a PB as it's fairly flat, taking in the Cambridgeshire villages of Histon and Impington, following the Cambridge guided busway, skirting around the edge of the science park and along some country footpaths to the finish. A well organised event with about 1000 runners. Recommended.

Cross country results

Still waiting for the full details, will update with more detail when I get them.

However the zist is that the Men were 2nd, the Ladies were also 2nd! - meaning overall we are leading! wooo hoo! Great start!

We also had 46 runners turn out as well as a bunch of helpers and supporters. Special thanks to Jim and Sam for taking the scores down for us.

I'll list the results after this, as will take me a little while to type them out as well as decipher Jims hand writing. :wink:

Massive thanks to all who turned out. :+1:

Don't we all look fantastic in out kit?!

Great to see the mugs out in force too!

On a personal note, I really had the best fun today! Really pleased to see us all there bright eyed and bushy tailed. Fantastic to get a great result to start us off. I've had a smile on my face all day.

If anybody has any quotes, please let me have them for the report.

STEVENAGE HALF - I completed in 2.25.18. There were 5 squirrels in total also at this event but I’m sorry I’m struggling to find the results for all on the FVS website

Nessa, can you please give your full name?

Re: Press report for week ending 4 Nov 2018

Thank you, John, for posting the XC results and for overseeing such a fab start to the season. Great to see us topping the table!

Well done to all our brilliant runners for a stellar set of performances on a tough course and thanks to our supporters as well. Delighted to be part of it all this morning.

Re: Press report for week ending 4 Nov 2018

Cara Sutton and Dervla Downing completed the half marathon. It is great course, hilly in places but running through Fairlands was lovely. We both got previous PBs; Cara took 8 minutes off her previous one to come in at 2:03:12 and Dervla took 5 minutes off to come in at 1:46:23. We were very happy. It is a very well organised and marshalled event.
