Sunday 15th May saw 14 Men and 12 Ladies competing in the West End 8 league race. In sunny conditions Matt Johnson led the men’s team home in just over 47 minutes, finishing 16th overall. Father-son combination Chris and Joe Langham followed and veteran Simon Earley was 4th for Hinckley with a rare PB ( his first in four years!)
Male Runner of the day goes to Rob Pratt for a great all round performance – well done Rob and thanks for a great team display by all the Hinckley runners!
On the ladies’ team Kate Perkins was the first home in 56:33, a 6-minute PB on the course and finishing 14th lady. Kate was closely followed by Bethan Padbury. The 3rd and 4th Hinckley ladies were respectively Céline Guéry and Penny Masser , who both achieved PBs for this course.
Female runner of the day goes to Jude McSharry. Jude has really thrown herself into the club life since joining, either by wearing the Hinckley vest on races or by being an enthusiastic supporter (and photographer!). On Sunday, Jude demonstrated her great team spirit as she was a brilliant support thougout the race to fellow Hinckley runner Jacqui Campbell!
Well done all and see you at Gaddesby 7 on next Sunday!
Jon, Ed, Katy and Céline
