Congratulations this month go to;

Week 1

On the Sunday was the first race of the NSRRA series which saw 49 TRC runners at the Alsager 5. First male TRC runner home was Simon Myatt in 26:22 and first lady was Kristina Defries in 29:42. Alan Brookes was 1st MV60 in 31:35.

 At the same time Dale Colclough tackled a rather longer race! He was burning 2000 calories doing Round 1 of the Kong Mini Mountain Marathon. There were white out conditions which made navigation round Glaramara and Allen crags pretty tricky but all was good. 4hrs/ 23K / 1200meters climb and he finished 32nd out of 164 entries, brilliant!!!

Week 2

The Saturday had the usual parkruns with a couple of flyaway runs at Telford and Exeter. But the afternoon had the final round of the Birmingham X Country League races at Coventry. 21 TRC men ran and Simon Myatt was a fantastic 2nd. The overall results meant that the TRC men's Team A were 3rd overall and gained promotion to Division 1. A fantastic Team effort, well done to all involved. Simon Myatt was 3rd overall in the series with Luke Boulton 11th. Not to be outdone 6 of the TRC Ladies raced at Warwick University in Race 4 of the Midlands County X Country League.

On the Sunday was the first running of the Walton Wobble 10k where 5 of our runners competed in a very cold, sleety and windy race over a hilly course over Cannock Chase.

Week 3

3 different parkrun runs this week including James Williams running at Torbay. At Hanley we had Lee Watson in second place in 17:48 and Mark Gorton 6th.

There were 4 races on Sunday with Scott Minshall a brilliant 2nd at the Stoke 10 miler in 59:34. At the tough Rugeley 10 miler Kristina Defries was 1st Lady and 8th overall and Alan Brookes was 1st V60 in 1:10:18, Simon Myatt was 5th at the Wrexham Bakery half marathon in 1:11:13.

Week 4

We had more parkrunners this week with Tonia Vernon running at Hereford and a few more at the Congleton and Hanley parkruns. At Hanley, Lee Watson was 1st with Bryn Holmes 4th.

This was the weekend of the National X Country Championships at Nottingham. There were 9 Senior Men and 7 Senior Women competing, with Simon Myatt first TRC man home in 113th place and Deb Thomas first TRC woman home in 158th place. The mens team were 81st and the women 45th.

On the Sunday Simon Myatt also ran at the Knypersley Pool 5 where he finished 2nd in 28:41  and Tasmin Burley ran in the fun run. We also had Mark Gorton running at the Oulton Park Half marathon and Andy Vickerman ran the Stockport Trail half marathon.
