Downland 30

Results index 

30 miles on the South Downs Way. A 12 and a half minute uphill first mile, and they reached half way in about 2 and a half hours. Unfortunately this proved to be a bit quick, and the second half was a little slower. They only got lost once (following the sheep) but this meant an extra couple of miles. Fortunately a kindly local runner helped point them back on track.

Jack And Jill Challenge

Tom thought he was taking the easier option at the Downland 30 by running the 5 miler, but it proved somewhat harder than he expected, with some serious hills.

Three Forts Marathon

Results index   Full Results

Rob and Tom were less than impressed to be told at 24 miles they were over the time limit, marshalling was being withdrawn and the finish was being removed. A stiff letter to the organisers has been despatched I believe. It's acceptable to have a time limit and withdraw support at halfway or maybe 15 miles, but to DQ people 2 miles from the finish is just not on.

Men's Sy Lge Div 4 - Fixture 4 - Wimbledon Common

Results index

The final fixture of the league. A welcome return for Andy, still not back to full fitness but happy with his run nevertheless (and now a vet).
Also, a welcome to 2 members running their first event for Collingwood - Paul Dolan and Trevor Rutter.
Chris Fitz had a tough afternoon - he spent most of last night and part of the morning celebrating at his work leaving do - but despite that managed to pull a fast one on Terry in the last half mile.
Chris B enjoyed a very close inspection of the turf somewhere out on the course, spilling blood for the club and finishing with a camouflage covering.
Thanks to all for their for their time and efforts over the season.
Collingwood finished 4th on the day and 6th overall in the division. See below for today's scores and final league positions.

A chilling wind on the exposed downs. Dan was feeling in much better form this week and was very happy with his run. Steve made a suicidal start - off with the leaders for the first 400m - but payed for it later.
A welcome return to previous member Nigel in his first race back for us.
A great turn-out. Thanks to all.
Collingwood was in 5th on the day and still 6th overall.

Box Hill Knacker Cracker - 12km

This one clears away the cobwebs, with the mud on some stretches, the slopes and the dreaded steps back up to the top from the stepping stones (which were under water so we were advised not to cross them!!!), the 12km seemed longer. Must do it again in the summer when it's 2 laps???

Weymouth 10

My first race since I tore my calf at The Great North. Weather was fine with little wind, which is unusual at this time of year. I took it steady and apart from my calf feeling a little tight I didn't have any problems.
Had a good sprint finish with a lady I had been trying to catch for 2 miles. I think they gave us a joint finish?
