Worksop Half-Marathon

With a tough hill in the first mile and a route covering part of the summer Notts road race route in reverse and compensated by a long descent home to the finish, the Worksop Half-marathon always attracts a big field and is well supported by LERC runners as a popular autumn race. Rob Fox returned to the distance for a final time this year with a season’s best 1:19:59 36th place and 3rd V50; Andy Colgate 1:23:32 66th and Mario Rocchelli 1:30:08 were the first 3 Long Eaton men home. Sharon Orridge in 1:24:00 71st to claim a fantastic 2nd lady place; Sarah Crannage 903rd 1:53:03; and Debbie Coleman 932nd 1:51:19 were the top placed ladies. Pb’s on the day for David Weston 1:47:24 765th and James Parkinson 1:50:37 898th both taking over 6 minutes off their previous best times, Rachel Woollard 1:57:52 1122nd and Karen Preston in her first race over the distance since The Robin Hood Half in 2005 removing over 2 minutes to set new figures of 2:15:25 in 1567th position.

Trail / Off Road

Holme Pierrepont Parkinson 10Km

In a night race of 2 laps around the lake to raise funds for the Parkinson’s Disease charity and collecting £9000 on the night, Shaun Burton was 17th in 44:04. Head torches were given as part of the entry fee and Shaun said of the event “…everyone wore a head torch and nice to see a long line of lights twinkling in the dark reflected in the water when you looked across on the other side”.

The Skeleton Run

A night time race around the woods and trails of Leicestershire’s 2nd highest point in the Beacon Hill country park for runners and Nordic walkers. Funds raised by the event were donated to The Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. The route of 5 miles was marked by glow sticks and fluorescent signs although Rob Crawford took a wrong turn but still finished 7th in 34:34 with Vicky Yeomans 115th and 49:31. Phil Abbott was a well placed 3rd in 33:53 but it was one of the organiser’s website comments by Gaynor Prior that caught the eye, “thanks to everyone who took part last night, you all looked great especially mankini man who ran like the wind and came 3rd!”. A new super hero is born.
