Nikki's Kent Call Up and Santa Run Fun

It was a relatively quiet weekend for FRC, running wise at least.

On Saturday, Nikki Goodwin’s hard work and successful cross country season paid off as she was selected to run for Kent at the Southern Inter Counties Cross Country Championships in Oxford - a great achievement in itself. A tough race running against some of the best runners in the south of England, Nikki put in a great performance and finished in 71st position in a time of 27:31.

Taking place at the same time were the Southern Masters Cross Country Championships where Caroline Curtis was in action. In another tough race with a high quality field, Caroline finished in 51st position in a time of 29:36.

On Sunday morning, the annual Folkestone Santa Run took place. Tony Scott, Aldous Hosking, Andy Richardson, Lisa Smith, Kate Lancefield and Stuart Sprinks all donned Santa suits and took to the streets as part of the fun event organised by the Rotary Club to raise money for charity.

It was a windy morning on the Leas for this week’s Parkrun as both parkrun cups move in to their final rounds. In the main cup, Aldous Hosking knocked out Tim Warren to book his semi-final place against Steve King. In the B cup, there a were three quarter final matches played out as Chris Woolgar knocked out John Turbutt, Jody Stoakes knocked out Tony Scott and despite finishing 2nd overall in 18:03, Dan Voller’s campaign was ended by Kirsty Wilson.  

Other runners taking part were James Slater Whitham (19:29) narrowly ahead of Tristan Bruce (19:30), followed by Dom Woolford (20:37), Tim Warren (20:39), Debbie Jeffery (20:58), Rob Hill (21:10), Chris Woolgar (22:14), Stuart Erskine (22:23), Tony Scott (22:31), Levi Atwell (23:41), John O’Hara (25:08), Andy Richardson (25:30), Phil Maul (25:46), Carolyn Lewis (26:05), Richard Dyer (26:10), Malcolm Gibbs (26:17), Darren Crew (26:43), Alan Vigrass (26:45), Jody Stoakes (26:45), Gary Brazier (27:43), Julie Gibbs (28:57), Leah Atwell (33:16), Luke Fowles (33:49) and Louise Fowler in 34 minutes exactly.

Elsewhere, Alan Randall took part in the Walmer and Deal Parkrun finishing in a time of 25:36. Steve King made the trip over to Ashford where he ran 23:45. In Glasgow, Pam Allon ran 30:03 while over in Poland, Emma Creasey was first lady at the Warszawa-Praga event in a time of 19:25.
