Peterborough Grand Prix Series Senior 5K (Race 1 of 5)
The welcome return of the Peterborough Grand Prix Series after an enforced 2 year break saw 324 finishers complete the out & back course around the village of Eye in very hot & balmy conditions.

In Race 1, the BRJ squad of 16 runners were led home by Keelan Duffy for the Men in 8th place & Marcela Gracova, 3rd Woman, in 37th place.

Despite the warm conditions, 2 new Club 5K PB’s were achieved, these being for the in-form Paul Mitton by 3 Secs (PB #6 of 2022) & Chloe Wilson by 6 Secs (PB #2 of 2022). Despite the official results showing that both Ruth & Tony Foster were competing in wildly incorrect Age Categories, 4 Age Category podium positions were actually secured. The results for our squad are:-

Ramsey Abbey 10K
Hot & windy conditions met the 10 strong BRJ squad amongst the 188 finishers. The course was slightly changed as the usual start / finish area now forms part of a Tennis Court. The wind direction & strength varied considerably throughout the course meaning that on what should have been the fastest sections, the competitors were running into strong headwinds. Marcela Gracova was our top runner finishing in 6th position overall & 1st Woman. Marcela was closely followed by Felicity Baillie (4th Woman) & Neil Whitaker (1st BRJ Man). Gerry Pye & new member Nina Gays made their Club 10K debuts & 4 BRJ’ers secured Age Category podium positions. Individual stats were:-

Flaming June 1/2 Marathon
The heat combined with the windy conditions, especially in the more open parts of the course, made it unlikely that PB’s could be achieved. Despite these challenges, great individual performances saw Keelan Duffy secure the Runners-Up position & Nicki McMahon was 3rd Woman. 3 of the squad secured Age Category podium positions. The squad stats were:-

Flaming June 1/2 Marathon

00:05:35 00:00:37 00:14:55 00:00:27 00:09:49


Rutland Dambuster Tri
2 BRJ’ers were among the 390 finishers in the Standard Distance event. The strong winds made the 1.5k Swim in Rutland Water similar to a Washing Machine & no doubt also affected the times on the Bike & Run phases. David Ward led home the BRJ Triathletes in position 84 in 2:37:45 very closely followed by Sajan Khosla in position 96 / 2:40:14. Their stats were:-

NAME SWIM (1,5K) T1 BIKE (40K) T2 RUN (10K)
David Ward 00:29:06 00:01:52 1:20:35 00:01:13 00:44:59
