SHARRON'S ROUND-UP 30.03.16
Emma Rathbone took on the mammouth task of the Jurassic Coast Challenge. Her three days of running consisted of 28, 26 and 29 miles, huge respect Em ! James Watson and Ollie Berry fought the elements at Cardiff at the half marathon World Championships running 1.14.08 and 1.14 00, a superb result having seen the rain and wind coming at them horizontally! Nick Daniels went off road on a lovely sunny Friday at the Kilmington Kanter 7 mile multi-terrain in 48.09.
The Easter Bunny 10k on Monday stayed relatively dry, apart from underfoot at the start with a large area of floodwater to negotiate near the start! TAC took a group to the much loved event, coming back with PBs and prizes alike. Keith Paul was first club member home in a time of 36.55 and winning the V50 prize. Along with Danny Doyle 40.26, Carl Ward 40.54 and Martin Bluemel 42.03 these boys picked up the team prize, narrowly beating Teignbridge Trotters. Not bad for three 50-somethings, with Danny bringing the cumulative age down considerably at 20! A case of youth and experience! The boys continued to come in with Alan Bolon taking off over 2 mins from his PB in 47.06, Daniel Green beating his Dad in 48.29 with Robin Green 50.25. The girls also had winners in their midst with Hannah Taunton coming in with a strong run in second place and a PB of 38.10. Lesley Westgate ran 52.28 to scoop the V55 prize with Suzi Griffiths in 57.50 and Ursula Green 58.07 kicking off their year's race campaigns.
