Piotr Dura carried the NOTFAST vest around the country again. On Bank Holiday Monday he ran the Canterbury half marathon in 1h47m then on September 8th he ran in London to finish The Run to the Beat half marathon in 1h42m.
Last Sunday Piotr ran the South Cheshire 20 miler near Crewe. Running with pain in his right foot he finished in 2 hours and 45 minutes . He was very happy and satisfied after the race and full of praise for the organizers. The route was well prepared and perfectly supervised by marshals of South Cheshire Harriers. Piotr would like to mention a wonderful lady marshalling at 18miles. She was so enthusiastic, a great mixture of cheer lady with a football fan when she was supporting him with her charming shout. Every runner with such support can beat their own PB. Weather conditions were brilliant. Piotr said he will take part in that event again and has started counting down the days.

Liz Walton and David Watt were up in Derbyshire again on Sunday to compete in the ‘Fit as a Butcher’s Dog’ fell race. It was the first time this out and back race of 3.8miles with 1080ft of climb had been run and it attracted 69 runners. They started at Hope, ran up Lose Hill and back down again. David came home in 36min26secs and was fifth V50 male, but Liz flew in at 41mins02secs and was awarded first V50 female. She won that most coveted prize for vegetarians – free sausages from the local butcher, after whom the race is named!
