Congratulations this month go to;

Week 1

The weather this weekend was awful resulting in the cancellation of the Hanley parkrun and atrocious conditions for training and racing on the Sunday.

On Saturday a few decided to go to Cannock Chase as Hanley was cancelled and at Congleton Ed Wilson was 8th in 19:34.

On the Sunday, despite the risk of frostbite and being washed away we had runners competing at the short and long ends of the distances, from 5 miles at Cheadle, to 40 miles on the Millenium Way from Newport to Burton on Trent. Vinnie Jones was 2nd at Cheadle in 28:00 and  Scott Minshall had a great race at the Paris Half Marathon finishing in 1:20:18. Sam Newton was feeling fine on Cloud 9 and 3 ladies ran the Ashbourne 10. But hero of the day was Graham Sheridan who competed in the Millenium Way race. 40 miles on paths, across fields and along canal towpaths in the rain and sleet. He finished in 9:18:52 and survived.

Perhaps a mention also for our "normal" runners who went out for training runs on the Sunday and also survived the wind, rain and mud. Well done everyone.

Week 2

Much better weather this weekend and a few runners ventured farther afield for their runs. We had runners at Silverstone, Bath, Ironbridge, Knighton and 5 runners at the Inter Counties X Country championships.

On the Saturday Lee Watson was 1st at Hanley parkrun in 17:48. There were 5 TRC runners at the Intercounties x country with Simon Myatt first TRC runner home in the Mens Senior race, Kristine Defries first TRC runner in the Womens Senior race and Olivia Ball first TRC runner in the U13 girls race.

On the Sunday we had 2 runners at the picturesque but hilly Ironbridge Half, 2 at Silverstone and 19 at the Knighton 20 where Simon Myatt was 6th, Deb Thomas 1st F35, Jill Phillips 1st F55, Stan Winterton 1st M70 and Alan Lewis 1st M75. There were also Club Records for Jill Phillips in F55 and for Jo Stanfield in F45. We also had PBs for James Fowler at Knighton and Scott Minshall at the Silverstone Half.

Doug Alcock had a brilliant run at the Hague Half Marathon, he was 1st MV65 and set a new Club Record of 1:28:27.

Week 3

The usual parkruns this weekend but no performances of note, maybe runners are aiming at Stafford Half.

Sunday's weather was a bit windy for good half marathon times, especially on the run along Beaconside. However Simon Myatt put in a great performance finishing 5th overall and Debbie Thomas also had a great run and was 2nd female. In the age categories Alan Brookes was 1st MV60, Bryn Holmes 2nd MV45 and there was another PB for James Fowler.

Week 4

A lot of activity this weekend, and at a very high level.

Saturday had a few further afield parkruns at Torbay, Canon Hill and Telford. Best results were Mark Gorton who was 4th at Hanley in 19:19 and Alan Brookes who was 5th at Telford with a MV60 course record of 19:00.

There was also the international X-Country at Port Talbot where Simon Myatt ran for the winning England team.

At Sutton Park we had the Midlands Counties Road Relays where 31 TRC runners took part. The ladies ran 6 stages and the men 12. TRC ladies were 22nd, the men's A team were also 22nd and the B team were 43rd. The A team did brilliantly and qualified for the National Road Relays which are also at Sutton Park on 8 April. Its the biggest team event in the country so why not go and watch!!

We also had the first 2017 Time Trial around the 3k course at Wedgwood. 53 runners from all the groups plus helpers, a real team effort.Huge thanks to Jill Phillips for the numbers and paperwork, Walter Mosiuk, Tel Wall, Scott Bang Tidy Zikmanis and Dale Colclough for timekeeping and coming along on bikes to help keep the course safe...and thank you very much to all run leaders for encouraging your groups to give it a go. Next TT will be Tuesday 25 April...
