Notfasts Kathleen Davis took on the Brinsworth 10k near Rotherham. A charity event for the benefit of the local Hospice. The tough undulating course was well marshalled, with two water stops, handy on a warm morning. Kathleen finished in 47.14
The second Fernwood 5k, here in Newark attracted a much bigger field than last year and also benefited from having an accurately measured course.. (last year, how can we put it ?..was a ‘bit quick’ ).
Fifty four runners faced near perfect conditions and the prospect of a pancake flat, two lap course round the Fernwood development. Good marshalling, good atmosphere,. a ‘local classic’ race in the making.

Chris and Lynn McDonnell did the Holme Pierrepont Grand Prix races, a series of 4 races running Tues/Thurs evenings over the last 2 weeks. They were at 4 different venues
Holme Pierrepoint, Wollaton Park, Rushcliffe Park, Colwick Park
They were a variety of distances- 5k, 4 miles, 5 miles and 10k, all over multi-terrain. Lynn thinks she came about 8th in her age category, Chris thinks he came about 6th. The final overall results are not yet posted on the web-site.
Lynn and Chris both did them last year and said were all muddier this year.
David Gill also ran them. He was faster then Lynn but slower than Chris.
