Relays, Fell Racing, Bewl 15, Chilham Chase and Park Run

This week started with the 4th race in the East Kent Relays.  This was held at the different venue of Dymchurch this year as the usual Samphire Hoe course was closed.  The race was an out and back route of 2.6 miles along the seafront starting at the Kiosk.  FRC are in a good position with 1 more race to go.  In the A league FRC hold 1st position in the Senior Mens,  V50 Men, V45 Ladies and V55 Ladies.  In the B leagues Senior men are in 1st position and V45 Ladies are in joint first position.

Andrew Noble and Caroline Curtis have been busy this weekend.  On Saturday Noble and Curtis took part in the Warslow Beer Festival 2nd Fell Race.  Warslow is a small village in Staffordshire and this is a race over approximately 6 miles with 2000m ascent and descent and some fantastic views within the Peak District National Park.  Noble finished in 26th position in a time of 71:26 and Curtis in 75th position in 93:17

On Sunday Noble and Curtis, gluttons for punishment,  ran in their second fell race that weekend – The Great Hucklow Fell Race – another gruelling 6 miles from Gt. Hucklow up to Abney Moor 500 ft above, then down the Bretton Clough and return to Gt. Hucklow.  Noble placed as 3rd V50 Male in 35th position in 53:38 and Curtis finished in an impressive time of 1:06:30

Anthony Scott ran in the challenging 18th Bewl Valley 15 this Sunday and completed the 15 mile course in a time of 2:18:19   This race has been voted as the 6th best race in the UK and takes place on the gently undulating hills around Bewl water in the pretty Sussex and Kent countryside.

Alan Randall and Jane Wren took part in the Chilham Chase at the Chilham Chase and Chill Festival.  This 2.6 mile fun run took place in the beautiful grounds of Chilham Castle. The race includes some fun and challenging obstacles. In 1616 Sir Dudley Digges built the castle and in his will he left money for a race to be run in memory on his birthday - "A race run between teams of 'Gentlemen and Maidens of good character from Chilham and surrounding parishes'."

There wasn’t any parkrun tourism this week and FRC stuck to their home run up on The Leas.  Lloyd Worsley was 2nd Male to finish in a time of 17:13, followed by Levi Atwell (18:52), Jean Paul Jeffery (19:15),  Stuart Erskine with a new PB time (19:55), 1st Lady finisher Deborah Jeffery (20:01), Jordan Mosses (22:23), Anthony Scott (22:39), Catherine O’Connor (22:59), Deirdre Coombs in a PB time of 24:23, Vicky Scott (24:44), First Timer Laura Ballard (25:52), Richard Dyer (26:17), Kate Bullard (27:26), Anna Hegarty (28:19), Pamela Allon with a PB (29:29), Kelly Flannery (29:35), Louise Fowler (30:03), Hayley Kluczynski (33:47), Russell France (33:48), Kate Lancefield (34:52), Nicola James (37:22) and Ileana Fernandes (39:26)
