The Summer Handicap, A night of the 5000m's, Outlaw Hoskins and the Parkrun Challenge

The Summer Handicap Race was held on Tuesday 24th July and held at a different venue this year.  It took place at the Hythe and Saltwood Sailing Club and was a 4 mile out and back run along the seafront to Sandgate.  Well done to our 2018 handicap winners:- Zoe Neale (buggy assisted!), Hayley Kluczynski- 1st Lady, Ray Johnson 1st Male, Nikki Goodwin Fastest Lady and Nick Steele Fastest Male. Many thanks also to Chris Addison, his wife Angie and Debbie Jeffery for preparing and serving the excellent BBQ. Dave Smyth did an excellent job with the handicapping and producing the results, Tina and Grahame Eke with the timekeeping and Dave Denyer with the course measurement and marking.

Thursday night was the Night of the 5000m held by Invicta East Kent Athletics Club on the track in Canterbury.  5 different starts for various times starting at 6pm through to 8pm.  Stephen King (25:31:42),  Jane Wren (25:43:32) and Angela Warren (27:11:73) ran in the Under 30 Minutes Start, Caroline Curtis (21:21), Richard Fowles and Alan Randall (24:57) in the Under 25 minutes Start and Tim Warren(19:15) in the Under 20 minutes.

Aldous Hosking became an official Outlaw by completing the Outlaw Triathlon in 12 hours 42 minutes.  This Triathlon is 2.4 mile swim (1:21:55), 112 mile bike ride (06:06:09) and all followed by a Marathon (26.2 Miles) in 4:47:09. (The same distances as an official Ironman). .
