Some additional results from last week; Tomáš Trešnák ran the Caythorpe Dash 1/2m in 1:33:57. There was some confusion over the team results, so our joint NOTFAST/ Toonie team unfortunately didn’t come 2ndafter all, but that doesn’t detract from their moment of glory! Also, Ernie Clarke and Cathy did the MaraMile 5k.
This week’s results: Four NOTFAST runners took part in the Clumber Park Night Run on 13th Feb, a 7k trail run. Annette Taylor and Faye Hemmingway and finished in 43:49 and 43:52 respectively, closely followed by Sue and Steve Needham in 46:49 and 46:52 respectively.
Annette reports “Clumber Night Run is a must! It is a national series of night-time trail running events, held in partnership with The National Trust and Cotswold Outdoor. Two runs were available 7km & 3km. It was a cold evening but without wind or rain. As the evening light diminished the bright, often colourful lights adorning runners gave a festive air to the whole experience. Parking, registration, bag drop all well organised. Face painting was available, large camp fires to toast yourself and/or marshmallows. The 7k went off first after a brief warm up. The course was well marshalled and obstacles illuminated. It was good to soak up the atmosphere and the sights of lights bobbing through the trees rather than be going for a PB. Having completed the course we were awarded a medal which was hung around each individual’s neck – a nice touch I thought.”
On Sunday a new record number of 35 NOTFAST members took part in the East Midland Cross Country event at Colwick, meaning that we entered two men’s senior teams, three men’s vet teams, a women’s senior team, and five women’s vet teams – fantastic! It was a cold but sunny day with excellent running by all over a demanding hilly course that tested out our hill training. Event tent worked well, easily put up, providing shelter for bags, cakes and runners.
