5k Summer Series 2016 - May 11th results

 

Race summary report – Race 1, 11th May

 

 

 

Thank you for coming along to Langley Park on a day that threaten worse that it gave. There was some flooding at the bottom end as well as plenty of mud on the unfinished tracks to send you to the washroom later. We hope you had a good run and enjoyed the après run ambience.

 

 

 

Congratulations to the male and female winners. Martin Little, a regular at Langley Park, whose winning time this evening of 19;15 was a tad down on his course PB of 19.03. Similarly Fiona Kennedy of Ealing, Southall & Middlesex AC, was a little off her best time clocking 22;25. In 9th position overall.

 

The youngest runner to finish was Shania Heath in a time of 35;20 beating her mum by 8 seconds. Shania is at present involved with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme (DofE) and this race is part of her physical challenge.

 

Given the nature of the weather earlier in the day 51 finishers is a good score. Next month with better conditions leading up to the race we should see more runners coming out from the woodwork.

 

The marshals out on the course were all members of the “Friends of Langley Park” volunteer group. I’m sure their knowledge of the area helped point you all in the correct direction. 

 

I invited you all to witness the rhododendrons in a blaze of colour. This is the best time of the year for them to flower. Regrettably most of the garden area is infected with a virus and cut-back has been taking place to encourage a good show for next year. Put “Race 1” at Langley in 2017 in your diary now!

 

 

 

REMEMBER the series is best score over 3 races. A page on the website will explain how the points are distributed.

 

 

 

REMEMBER also to keep hold of your bib number for your next race.

 

 

 

The next race is on Wednesday, 8th June.
