5k summer series 2013 - July 10th results

The 3rd and final race of the summer series in Langley Park was probably the most pleasant as we could all chill out in the warm evening waiting for the number crunching to be completed and awards made.

 

Congratulations to all who ran the last race. We had for the first time a female overall winner of an individual race.

 

The winner on the 3rd race was Abigail Bagshaw of Morpeth Harriers. She is currently down this way with the RAF.

 

Second place went to Peter Fenton-O’Creevy. This was an improvement of one place from the first run of the series. He had a “no run” on the second race.

 

Consistency pays off when running in a series for most of those in the awards categories had 3 runs under their belt.

 

Paul Douglas, Leighton Buzzard AC and Patricia Thomas, Ealing, Southall and Middlesex AC were the series winners in the male and female categories.

 

The marshals out on the course were from the Friends of Langley Park group and I am indebted to their support to these races.

 

The Bucks Country Parks give us permission to run this series. These are the only running races held within the park. One limiting factor is that the car park is not suitable for any thing much larger such as a Sunday race.

 

Finally, as I sign off, I hope you enjoyed the experience of running in Langley Park and will be back again, whether for running or just visiting.

 

The South Bucks Running Group is made up of runners from local clubs that come together to present these low key events.

 

The next event on our schedule is the South Bucks 10k road race on the 6th October. This is a UK Athletics registered event and carries full SEAA course accreditation for distance.

 

It is a fast course so anyone out to improve on their past performances and ranking on “power of 10” should not miss out. Entries are now open. Go to  http://www.fabian4.co.uk/default.aspx?EventID=842 for online entry and further links.

 

Race assembly and parking is in the adjacent Black Park Country Park where there is ample parking space.
