Team Parkrun Competition & North Lincs Half Marathon

This weekend exemplified everything that we love about Clowne Road Runners; some great personal achievements, celebrated by all, alongside a great team ethos and most importantly of all, a lot of fun.

Saturday marked the second month of our team Parkrun competition, although there were fewer reported results of note this month, probably largely down to Sunday’s endeavours, of which more below.

At Rother Valley, Michelle Needham came in on 23:05, first in age category and 3rd lady. Helen Worsfold finished in 23:28, 4th lady and a 30 second PB. At Clumber, Karen Shipman finished in 22:42 and first in age category. At Poolsbrook, Holly Page achieved a 23:35. Meanwhile, at No Run in the Park, Paul Sadler scored a 22:38.

 

Sunday saw a grand total of 28 club members tackle the latest race in our Grand Prix Calendar, the North Lincs Half Marathon – a really well organised, friendly - and flat - HM.

It was an early start for those travelling on the Party Bus (thanks for organising Karen!) and an insight into a range of different pre-race fuelling strategies! 😂
