Club Records updated – Congratulations Mick

Congratulations to Mick Fairs who broke Ron Read’s 22 year old record for the Half Marathon at Manchester last month (October).  We have updated the records page on our website.

It is worth pointing out, in case you were not aware, that you can view the records anytime on the website.  From the top menu select  Club Info, then Club Records.  Please have a look at them. Perhaps you have broken one whilst being a member of the club but we don’t know it. If so let Don know the event, date and time.

This year we have added U20, U21 and U23 categories to recognise the young talent that now run with us.

If you do look, you will notice that there are a few long-time records that still haven’t been broken. Perhaps they are waiting there for you to break. Quite a lot pre 2010.  A number of Malcolm’s still hold!!

This year, in 2019, we have had 11 records broken and 3 new ones created. Our record breaking runners are: Ricard Coen [1]; Markus Dalgaard [1]; Janine Ellis [1]; Daniel Bundred [2]; Rob Downs [2]; Sharon Johnstone [2]; Mick Fairs [2]; and inspirational Nicky Mowat [3]!!

Following on from the excellent training you have been doing this year. In 2020 we’d like you to take on a challenge to Be Your Best.  Whether that’s fulfilling a PB, breaking a Club Record, completing a personal running ambition, representing your county/country  or whatever. You decide. Just focus on it and give it a go. You never know what happens on the day.  But take care. Keep running safely.
