Eton 10K - on Saturday 5 April, three of our SPR members took part in the Eton 10K at Dorney. The course was flat but windy on the day, and unlike many races an afternoon run!Eton_10K.gif

Danielle Millar came 1st in her age category (winning a trophy we believe!) in 57:04, with Deborah Wyatt coming 2nd in her age category in 57:22. Mark Burrell also took part in the 10K race finishing in 50 minutes exactly and 6th in his age category.

All three achieved PBs and Danielle and Mark set new club records. So, a great race for potential PBs - so long as the wind isn't too bad!!



Beaconsfield 5 Mile Easter Trail - on Easter Monday, 21 April 2014, three of our SPR members took part in the Beaconsfield 5 Mile Easter Trail Run - Mark Burrell, Julie Hughes and Jo Gibbons. Beaconsfield_5_mile.jpg

This was the second Beaconsfield 5 Mile Trail Run organised by Burnham Joggers. It was a beautiful day, perhaps a little hot for some of the runners, but a fantastic run that winds its way through the private Hall Barn Estate.

Julie Hughes crossed the line in an impressive 36:27 and was the 10th woman to finish the race and 2nd in her age category, Mark Burrell finished in 43:53 and was 9th in his age category, and Jo Gibbons finished in 47:40.

This is a must race for any SPR member who likes trail races.
