This weekend saw Andy Pritchett out again, in Blackpool, for the half marathon in gale force winds, Andy finished in 1h57m26s.
The wind during he Sleaford Half Marathon was also a problem for Steve Needham and Darren Wilkinson who struggled through it to finish in 2h05m and 1h51m15s respectively.
David Gill and Andy Watts are our only two cross country enthusiasts. They have completed all four of the East Midland Cross Country races at; Holme Pierrepont, Bramcote Park, Colwick Woods and Trent Meadows competing against clubs from all around the area. Each has been run in poor conditions with mud, water and wind. The last event was the worst of all. David says: ‘many runners dropped out some before the end of the first lap, sometimes our feet didn’t exit the water!’ Their perseverance and commitment paid off and meant that NOTFAST recorded a result in seventh place.
