Whats going on...

Well further to comments at the AGM I'm having a play to try and make this page more of a current news "what's going on" for Harwich Runners. So far I've added a Twitter feed & facebook is sitting in the background. A short version of the events calendar is on its way....

EventTiptree 10 miles
ReportA group of runners from Harwich travelled to the popular Tiptree 10 mile event. The scenic and undulating course provided some notable performances. Stephen Peck has not raced much since the Halstead marathon in May but decided to test himself on this course. Peck finished 8th overall in a high quality field in a spectacular time of 56 minutes 46 seconds and was second in his age group on the day. He also claimed a new Harwich Runners club record in the MV40 category. Claudine Benstead had another terrific run, claiming victory in the FV55 group with a stunning 70m 46s effort. It was her best time over the distance since 2015 and just short of her own club record. Lee Allen produced a new personal best time of 67m 18s, bettering his time from Chelmsford last November and finished a little way ahead of Simon Day in 67m 55s. Also recording his fastest time over this distance was Andrew Thorn whose time of 81m 12s was far quicker than he managed at Witham earlier in the year. There were also good performances from both Jeff and Jo Higgon and a wonderful return to action for Paul Brown who has had an extremely lengthy injury forced spell out of running.

Whats happened to the old running man, well he's still going but now hidden away here
