29 Sep Weekend Roundup 28-29 Sept 2019

Unfortunately I couldn’t grab a cover photo from anywhere to illustrate this weekend…so instead, I’ve raided the archives from last year to give you a “preview” for next Sunday’s Cardiff Half Marathon. Best of luck to all of you are toeing the line that day! Hopefully also lots of photos for the roundup, too….

Not great weather-wise this weekend, but a few hardy P&D folk were out getting their parkrun fix.

Real dedication to duty shown by Dr Katie Clark over at Swansea Bay. After completing her run in a nippy 25:35 she put on a CPR course for the Volunteer team down there….not easy when it kept raining and they were outdoors! Well done Katie (assisted on the day by Laurie Smith).

Performance-wise, we had strong runs from Andy Pearce at Barry Island (2nd in 20:03) and Mark Taylor setting a new course PB at Grangemoor (16th in 21:13).

Bethan Apglyn was using the Hasenheide parkrun as part of her taper for the Berlin Marathon the following day. Beth started the latter at an ambitious pace aiming at 3:30-3:35, eminently feasible after a strong training block with several strong race performances. However going through the half distance in around 1:48, she slowed slightly but still managed to pull out a brilliant PB of 3:42:32.

Ex members of P&D Richard Jackson-Hookins and Paul Morton also had top-drawer races, finishing in 2:26:51 and 2:56:09 respectively. For completeness, I should also mention Ben Butler-Madden running a speedy 16:38 finishing 3rd at the Hasenheide parkrun!

Slightly closer to home, Paul McGilvray was competing in the Windsor Half Marathon…don’t have the full results, but know that Paul ran a fine 1:35:17, which included a very strong finish.

Similarly we don’t have any accurate results from today’s Cowbridge 10k, where we had David Brown and Darren Morgan competing. However, a bit of Strava stalking would suggest that something went a bit astray with this race, with several runners talking about a course marking issue…in the absence of further information I’ll make no further comment!
