Monday evenings come round too fast, before I know it it’s stats time. Luckily I was reminded it was Monday earlier today!
It’s been another monster week with so much going on, locally and also much further away. This week we have had the Treforest 10k with Gethin Edwards, Stephen Paskell, Cath Powell and A.N.Other
Still on the home shores but right at the top Sophie Taylor completing the Edinburgh Marathon and
Catherine Davis running much further away in Mont St-Michel, France, completing her marathon, well done on that one.
A big congratulations to Little Miss Broomfield completed her first 1 mile, not bad for a very young member at only 4!! (I think) Well done Rebecca on getting her out young.
On to the stats, 85 runners this week completing 1843km, seems like a quiet week but some serious distances completed over 243 different runs.
Our top distance this week goes to Neil Jones clocking an amazing 106.2km and for the ladies Catherine Davis at 60.2 after notching up the marathon distance.
King of the road this week is Darpan Singh with his monster run to the bay, bet you never thought you would be doing that a few months ago. Our Queen, well Queens, of the road this week are Catherine Davis and Sophie Taylor for their marathon runs, anyone who does the marathon deserves that status for a week. Well done everyone.
Adrian Davies has reclaimed the Billy goat award with 1039m climbed during the week, and with the Sunday run up the smaelog the climb this week stood at 18717m.
Faster out there this week and setting the pace was Chris Metclaf averaging 4:25min/km
Champ for the post 6:30’s, distance goes to Catherine Davies with her 60.2km and Darpan Singh with his 25.2km. Impressive to see that the top 3 distances were all ladies, Cathering, Becs and Sophie all getting the miles in.
