Essex YA Road Relays

A bronze medal and a fastest lap award was the modest return for our young athlete teams at the weekend’s poorly supported Essex Road Relays at the Garrison in Colchester.  With middle distance eyes turned to cross country, the event (normally held in April) was an unwanted addition to the calendar. However, it gave some of our runners a chance to shine and impress the selectors with inter-county opportunities on the horizon – and this they duly did.

Lauren Stewart interview post-2:51 in Amsterdam Marathon

ImageLauren Stewart produced an extremely good debut marathon in Amsterdam on 18th October, with a chip time of 2:51.00 which ranks her 17th in the UK in 2009. She ran very even 5K splits of: 20.04; 20.04; 19.58; 19.57; 19.45; 20.20; 20.32; 20.49. 

Update: Lauren has kindly told the website editors what was behind her very useful time and, as interestingly, her successful, even pacing.

National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays

Our teams produced two very sound performances at the National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays in Sutton Coldfield today. Our men finished 20th and our women 21st in this very high quality event. With neither team suffering from an obvious weak link, Matt Barnes-Smith and Linzi Snow delivered our fastest runs of the day.

Met CC League, Seniors, Race 1 at Ruislip

Kat Gundersen
The popularity of the London City Runner Metropolitan Cross Country League shows no signs of abating, with nigh-on record fields in both the women's and men's races at Ruislip on Saturday. The season promises to be extremely competitive, and our teams showed that they will again be involved in both title battles as well as the Men's Division 1 relegation battle. Our women stole the honours in this first race, while our men's A team was a close 3rd and B team a gritty 13th. Kat Gundersen's 8th place was the stand-out performance.
