Easter Running!

We start this weekend’s round up with news from Good Friday. Stephen Tomlinson was at the Yorkshire coast for the Bridlington Easter 5 mile Dash, which he completed in 41:36.

Easter Sunday saw a super turnout for the Newark Half Marathon All Clubs run in sunny weather. A few ran the 12 mile version, but given the marathon season and very warm conditions, most opted for the 6 mile route.

On to Easter Monday and Jean-Louis Balestra travelled to Yorkshire for the Ackworth Half Marathon. He described the event as very well organised and the route stunning, and crossed the finishing line 1:41:10. Stephen Tomlinson was in action again, this time in the Peak Rail 7, in which runners have 56 minutes to beat a steam train full of family and supporters from Rowsley to Matlock and back, running 7 miles on an extension of the Monsal Trail. 1:00:00 for Tomo, so one up for the train this year I’m afraid.

Well done everyone!
