Helen Marson-Smith - 5k in 31 mins 51 secs

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

I did an easy 10k last night around the Greenway in 43.59

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

My favourite distance is Half Marathon. Ran it today solo in 1:38:52

Like a good calorie burning run, especially after taking full advantage of the "eat out to help out" whilst I've been on holiday.

Thanks John, Vince, Katie.

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

My favourite distance 10k in 55:32 around the park run route and streets of Stevenage

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

I ran the Mk5k pb special tonight. An actual race with actual people 😮

I finished in 17mins 19 seconds. It felt great to be at a real race again!

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Not my favourite distance but I'm not motivated to run 26miles alone!

So 10km in 56mins for me on my morning run today.

I need people to motivate me to run faster!!!

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

5k in 22.13 this morning.

James Keogh: 10 k at 44:03
Clare Hooley: 5 k at 35:19
On a flat and usually quiet local road, although unexpectedly a group of factory workers was out taking a break and did cheer us.

When trying to decide what ones favourite distance is, there’s definitely an element of how long am I wanting to go out before breakfast on a given Saturday morning. In reality for most of the time I’ve (Clare) been running, it’s always been around aiming to be able to run 10 km at all, but I also know one of my favourite races (MK festival of running where I do 10 k and James a half) is my favourite because I am in the unlikely position of finishing before the other half, so today 5 k it is, although the fact that James isn’t quite at pre-lockdown fitness helps.

Nick Malpeli: 10 miles in 01:02:56 earlier this week. Prefer to race half marathons, but not by myself 😀

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Easy 10k in 65.36 on an undulating off road course staying in Z2 HR :). Favourite race distance is probably closer to 400m but not sure that would have counted:) !!

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Instead of favourite distance, I went for one of my favourite runs of 4.7 miles.

After having monthis and months off due to achilles problems it has been such a joy to get fitter to be able to rediscover my favourite routes. Which I missed so much.

This one is from my home to and around Charlton, mostly off road. It was a lovely sunny evening with some amazing views and I pootled around in a very slow 1:04.

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

My favourite distance to race is probably 10 miles, but a combination of tiredness and a bit of a quad niggle meant I had to cut it short so only managed 10k, but I like 10k as well, so .....

A lovely easy chatty 13.1 miles with Helen and Tash for ROTM. This is not my favourite distance to race (I hate long runs) but I love this distance for an easy run and chat with great company - all of which I had today in abundance 😊

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

5k in 32.12

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

16k in heavy showers along the Taff Trail in Cardiff in 1hr 38.57
Not a favourite distance ( not sure I have one- they are all hard), but enjoyed the challenge.
Proud to wear my NHRR T Shirt in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

for me, the shorter the distance the better. My favourite race is probably 3km but as that's not very common, I did mine pushing Rogue in the buggy efore joining up with the gang for our usual Sunday longer run.

3km for me in 17:28. Link to Strava here:

Thanks team captains 😃

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Four of us ran from Bedford Priory Park this morning. Richard Weber, Dervla Downing and I chose to run 10 miles as we have missed out on the Sandy 10, Ricky 10 and Buntingford 10 this year. Brian Judkins chose to run 5 miles.

My time was was 1:27:31

(link https://www.strava.com/activities/3953335517).

Richard got a PB! And will post his time separately as will Dervla and Brian.

We celebrated with a delicious post-run Victoria Sponge Sandwich baked by Richard (photo of us in our NHRR vests with the cake is on Strava, link above).

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Ran 10 miles from Bedford Priory Park towards Sandy, doing a couple of loops of the lump by the river, with a bit extra after Danish camp. Dervla Downing and Lucy O'Connor also ran 10 miles, with Brian Judkins doing a 5 miler along the same route.

Picked up a 10 mile PB with a time of 1:19:43, along with a second best ever time for 10k.

A good morning was had by all, with tea and cake by the river for afters. :yum:

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Definitely not my favourite distance, but ran the St Albans 10km this morning, in 39:21. That’s a PB of 47 seconds and a 2 minute improvement on my 2019 time on the same course. Chuffed to bits!!

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Andrew Porter and I did the Baldock Beast route today - not my favourite distance but I do like the hills so I suppose that counts! We took it very easy with a few stops along the way and finished the 13.4 miles in 2.25.28.

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Today I ran 10 miles with Lucy O’Connor and Richard Weber....it was a lovely course and great to be out but I stopped and walked bits about 6 times..I couldn’t get in the racing “zone” but as ever always good to run with great company.

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

This isn't so much my favourite distance, more my favourite challenge. 5 miles that includes downhill from Letchworth to Hitchin then back up Hampden Rd, up past the Garden Centre and Up Lawrence Ave to finish me off!

47 mins 10sec

Re: Run of the Month - August - Favourite Distance TT results submission here (17th - 23rd)

Late entry, sorry!

I did a "mazy" and undulating 5K run in Hitchin / Gosmore on Saturday afternoon in a time of 26:46
