January 2017 Races

January Races (click on the links to go to specific race results)

Congratulations this month go to;

Week 1

The first weekend of the month only had Vernons Limp Wrist race which is a race where you have no watch and have to guess your finish time. The person who finishes nearest to their predicted time wins!

There was also a parkrun with 13 TRC runners participating and 3 of our ladies doing both Hanley and Congleton! Well done Kerry on a new parkrun PB.

Week 2

A few more ran the parkruns this weekend with the best performances being Martin Hull 2nd at Congleton in 18:12 and Lee Watson 2nd at Hanley in an identical time! On the same day was the Staffordshire X Country championships,  Olivia Ball was a brilliant 5th in the U13 girls race, Kristina Defries 6th in the Senior Womens race, Deb Thomas 4th in the Veteran Womens race and Simon Myatt 6th in the Senior men's race. Overall the women's team was 5th and the men's team 6th. A few of our runners competed on the Sunday with Helen Nicholls running the Wirral Way Trail half and Craig Taylor having a great run in the Central Lancs half marathon finishing in 1:20:40.


Week 3

A reduced number of parkruns because of the weather but maybe that helped the amazing turnout for the x country at Lilleshall where 23 turned out for the men's race. Simon Myatt was an amazing 2nd finisher, Vinnie Martin 14th and Luke Boulton 16th. The A Team were 3rd with 129 points only 15 points behind the winners and the B Team were 1st. A great team effort by all.  The team is now in 3rd spot in the league with a possible promotion to Division One.

The Womens race was in Wolverhampton where we had 6 runners with Julia Rigby first TRC runner home in 36th place in the Masters race and Kerry Dixon first TRC runner home in 45th in the overall race. The Team results are not yet available.

On the Sunday was the Four Villages Half marathon where we had 3 runners.

Week 4

A few more for the parkruns this week with 1st places at Hanley and Cannock for Lee Watson in 17:45 and Simon Myatt in 16:23 respectively.

Sunday had a couple of diverse races, the Cannock Chase trig points race involving navigation skills and the new Kidsgrove 10k. Congratulations to Scott Zikmanis who was 5th at Kidsgrove.

Week 5

Lee Watson seems to have got the hang of the parkruns with another first place at Hanley in 17:54. Not too far behind were Leigh Matthews and Bryn Holmes. At the Midlands X Country championships our first finishers were Simon Myatt and Kerry Dixon.

Only one race on the Sunday, the St Annes 10 miler where Simon Dunn was 1st MV50.
