NOTFAST results 23/07/2017

15 members completed Parkruns this week, at Parke, Hastings and Newark, with a new PB for Jonathan Van-Tam.

This week was all about The Conti Thunder Run, a 24-hour endurance race in Catton Park, Derbyshire.  There were members of NOTFAST taking part either relay teams of 5, 8 or running solo around the 10K cross country course, completing as many laps as possible in the 24-hour time period. The event started at noon on Saturday in bright sunshine, but there had been some rain the night before, making the course a little slippery. Around 3pm, the heavens opened, and they didn’t stop until around 7am the next morning, and quickly the course became treacherous, with some runners in other teams taking serious injuries. Luckily for NOTFAST, despite many falls on the boggy trails, there were no serious injuries.

In the Ladies Solo, Caroline Upton completed 11 laps, running for 21:27:25 of the 24 hours, and coming in in an excellent 9th place. In the Mens solo, Jim Lovett completed 5 laps in 11:05:55, coming in in 59th place, followed by Adrian Mumby (3 laps in 5:22:14, but retired hurt), and Bob Oakham (2 laps in 4:33:36).

In the Mens Teams, “NOTFAST Notfantastic 5” came 17th, completing 22 laps overall (Adrian Dix – 6 laps, Andrew Rowlands – 5 laps, Darren Wilkinson – 4 laps, Cliff Robinson – 4 laps, and Paul Zemontas – 3 laps)
