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....

EventHarwich 5k Race 4
ReportThe fourth race in the 5km series took place last week along the promenade at Harwich. A total of 127 runners took on the challenge of trying to beat their predicted times. The winner was Dennis Warner who beat his predicted time by the biggest margin, closely followed by Jason Meachen. Fastest runner on the night was Harwich’s Rob Reason whose time of 17 minutes 10 seconds was quicker than his only previous effort in the series. Fellow Harwich Runners Mark Lloyd (18m 18s) and Robin Brookes (18m 23s) both ran their quickest this year. Fastest lady for the fourth race in succession was Aiko Henington of Colchester in 18m 25s with the fastest local runner being Madeline Lewis in a seasons best 20m 41s. Despite a headwind in the first half of the race there were a good number of impressive new personal best times set. Archie Barrington recorded his 3rd PB of the series lowering his time by another 14 seconds to 18m 34s. There was a big leap forward for Lee Allen who ran inside 19 minutes for the first time, recording 18m 39s. Becky McCorquodale keeps threatening club records at the moment and narrowly missed out by just 3 seconds on the best V45 mark of 20m 44s here. There were also good gains for Ellie Haynes (22m 23s), Harry Young (21m 35s) and Valentina Burley (25m 48s). Trevor Lewis ducked under 22 minutes for the first time whilst Kim Pretty continues to improve with his first sub 24 minute time. Others grabbing new personal best times included Stuart Raffle, Kathy Barfield, Marcus Turner and Emma MacKillop. In the accompanying Junior race, run on the rock hard sports field over a 1 mile distance, the youngsters were trying to beat their predicted times by the biggest margin too. Race winner by a long way was Jude Lynch who smashed his predicted time by a huge amount. Fastest boy was Archie Henington in 6m 19s whilst the quickest time recorded by a girl was the 6m 55s recorded by Amy Thompson. There were new best times set by both Bella and Daisy Ward as well as Jamie Carter whilst Eleanor Newman matched her previous best.
