Race results summary 21st November to 28th November

With the wintry weather causing fixture cancellations at the Clowne half marathon and the Thirsk 10 miles the only member to get a club run in was Dave Boot. Dave writes:

“Long Eaton Running Club member Dave Boot travelled to the capital to take part in the Serpentine 5K in Hyde Park. Held on the last Friday of every month this popular race always reaches its entry limit of 200 runners about three weeks before each race. Due to the Winter Wonderland Christmas Fair the normal one lap course around the Serpentine which traditionally starts & finishes at the bandstand had to be replaced with a two lap course around the north of the royal park starting & finishing outside the Boathouse on the North bank of the Serpentine. Dave Boot finished in 42nd place in a time of 19.02 & 4th in his age group for vet 45’s. A very well organised race in almost ideal conditions being sunny but cool with only a slight breeze.”
