On Saturday there were Parkrun PB’s for Jacqui Walton (PB of nearly a minute), Kerry Robinson, and Breeze Rowlands – again!
Adam Holland ran the Rocky Horror Picture Show Tribute Marathon in Shropshire on Sunday, which involves running 42 laps of the Shrewsbury cycle track. The laps gave him good opportunity to see some of the outrageous costumes being worn, while he ran his 4th fastest marathon ever, and 2nd fastest this year to win in 2:36:22 and set a new course record!
The return of the Newark half marathon was a great success – a credit to all the organisers and everyone who made it happen. Special thanks to our own Jeremy Reichelt for doing a fantastic job with organisation and sorting everything out on the day. NOTFAST had 28 runners taking part, some of them running their first half marathon, and at least 8 getting PB’s. Two of our runners also got County Championship medals, and Edward and Val, as the oldest male and female runners from the Newark clubs, were each awarded a very swish new pair of trainers from the Lincolnshire Runner!
