T-SHIRTS

Its that time of year again!  If you are going to complete the minimum of 8 races to qualify for the Series please let me know what size T-shirt you would like?  If you don't need/want one please also let me know.  Size wise if in doubt I advise you to go for the smaller size judging by last year's.  Please email your requirements to canvaslove@btinternet.com

HEREPATH RESULTS

Well done to all 157 runners who completed the Herepath Half.  The race was won by Christian Green (Wells CH, current Series Champion) in a very impressive 1:28:30 to break the course record.  Second place went to our current second place series runner, Matt Lusby, in 1:29:37.  Third went to Daniel Piper (Avon Valley Runners) in 1:35:22.

For the ladies first place went to Rachel Astington (Running For Time) in 1:42:21 (11th overall), our soon to be 2019 Series champion, Joanna Carritt (Running Forever) was second finisher in 1:46:26 (14th overall).  Third went to Verity Elston (Minehead RC) in 1:50:05.

One race left!  Brent Knoll on 24th November.

STAGGER RESULTS

A huge well done to all 225 runners who completed the epic challenge that is the Exmoor Stagger.  The race was won (as usual) by James Baker (Chichester Runners) in 1:50:56.  Second went to Chris McMillan (Weston AC) in 1:51:35 (he was unlucky not to win as he took a wrong turn and ended up running and  extra 400 metres).  Third went to Mawgan Andrew (Taunton AC) in 2:01:06.

For the ladies Lucy MacAlister (Bristol & West AC) was first finisher in 2:07:54 (6th overall), second went to Phil Richards (Southville RC) in 2:25:11 (34th overall) and third went to Victoria Ratcliffe (Somer AC) in 2:30:22 (49th overall).

BURNHAM REPORT

Well done to all 232 runners who completed the Burnham on sea Half Marathon.  The race was won by our current second place Series runner, Matthew Lusby, in a very quick 1:15:15.  Second place went to Kyle Darragh (North Devon AC) in 1:15:36 and third went to Henry Gow (SouthvilleRC) in 1:16:35.

For the ladies Annabel Granger (Bristol and West AC) was first in an excellent 1:24:02, second went to Ami Yetton (Plymouth Harriers) in 1:28:22 and third went to Robyn Ellis (Westbury Harriers) in 1:32:34.
