The miserable weather on Sunday did not stop a big BRJ turnout at the St Neots half over the weekend. Despite the awful running conditions 56 of us ran the course, and there were some amazing results! David Hudson won the race in an amazing time of 1.13.39, congratualtions! The wind could not stop 8 BRJers getting new PBs; Ed Crothall, David Ward, Ian Shipley, David Barrett-Hague, Claire Ashton, David Lawrence, Claire Few and David Senior all clocking in with a new personal best time. A big congratulations to them all.
The brilliant Ellie Loosely was first female finisher in the 3km fun run with a time of 12.43, and Daniel Mitton secured second male finisher with a time of 11.02. James Orrell clocked a new 3km PB with a time of 11.13. A massive well done to our brilliant juniors!
On Sunday 1st May a number of BRJ Run & Tri Seniors and Juniors took to the fields of Fen Drayton to participate in the 10km and funrun. The sun was defiantly shining on them as we had Chloé Loosley come home in first place, Alice Holme 2nd female and 3rd overall, Ellie Loosley was the 3rd female across the line and finally William Lawrence came home as 3rd Male. Fantastic run by all the BRJ Seniors and Juniors.
May Bank holiday sunshine brought runners of all ages to Jubilee park in Huntingdon for the BRJ Mayor of Huntingdon Charity Race. Now in its third year this event has raised thousands of pounds which support local charities. Families and friends ran together in the Fun Run , a mile and a half course round the Jubilee park fields. Bill Hensley Mayor of Huntingdon Town Council thanked everyone for coming along to support the races and the charities they support. Toddlers running with mum and Dad brought loud cheers and applause as they ran, walked, skipped and bounced along. Every one deserved their medal for completing the course.
The five mile race was more competitive with 167 runners competing either to win or to cover the distance in a good time or for the first time.
Alex Metcalfe was the winner over 5 miles, finishing the race in an impressive 31.26 minutes, closely followed by Team Bex's Mark Barry. Tyrone Farrer was the first V40 finisher, and BRJ runner Gilles Corby took the prestigious V50 prize. Ahead of the pack of ladies was March AC's Geraldine Larham to take first female, and local BRJers Jackie Wren and Shelley Duffy took second and third.
Prises we awarded by Deputy Mayor Doug Mcilwain who thanked BRJ Run and Tri Club for organising another very successful and popular race.
