08 Sep Weekly Roundup 8th September 2019

A fairly ‘quiet’ weekend, but it was all kicking off last Tuesday, with the annual P&D pilgrimage to the Rose Inn Relays the other side of Newport. Louise Hunt took on the team organisation this year, and did a fab job getting 5 teams to the line, in spite of some last-minute illnesses disrupting the master plan…..

It’s a fast furious dash over 2 miles, and our teams did us proud, with some heroes (Ian Southwell and Mike Morgan) taking on two legs to make sure we had complete teams. Here’s a snapshot of the results with the full details found here…..

The Dudes (Mike, Kit and Ian) were our best-placed team, finishing a very creditable 3rd in the MM1 Category, but lovely to see a mixture of people in the other teams. Here are the Dynamos and the Dudettes….

Great photos from the night taken by Sarah Jayne Beechey….here are some brilliant action shots of Lisa Cleary & Sarah Lees, Terry McCarthy and Mark Taylor

Talking of Mark, he gets one of my “much sought after”(!) parkrun Performance Nominations, recording a fine 21:47 at Grangemoor for 18th place and a course PB. The other nominations are Malcolm Bradley, running a speedy 22:01 at Aberbeeg for 8th place and a tremendous 79.18% Age Grade score, and Ruth Cann finishing 2nd Woman (14th overall) over in Eire at Waterford in a speedy 21:35.

Other members were traveling far and wide for their running fix. “Super Woman” Bev Warburton was taking on the challenge of the Medoc Wine Marathon….details are hazy, but my understanding is you quaff a glass of vino every mile. That seems like a lot of wine, but Bev managed to totter to the finish in a warm and fuzzy 6 hours….

Up in Newcastle, Nigel Adams and Sarah Lees took on the Great North Run, finishing in just over two hours and making lots of friends on the way. Apparently Penarth and Dinas Runners are now twinned with South Shields Harriers, with invitations exchanged to run marathons in Wales and the North East! Sarah was also raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, top job….

Finally, we have two other results to report. Beth Apglyn finished 354th in the Chippenham Half Marathon in a time of 1:45:57, and Steve New was 257th in the Roman Run, in a time of 3:29:35.
