The 'Run'down - 08 October 2018

Magnificent Marathon Running this weekend! Alex Toll ran in England Colours at the Chester Marathon, finishing in a fantastic time of 2:53:00. Whilst 'down under' in New Zealand Gareth Jones was 2nd in the Mount Cook Marathon, in an excellent time of 3:02 and Rosie Helps completed the Budapest Marathon (her first ever!) in 4:07:06.

It was also the final event of the Summer Championships and there was a good turnout at the Beacon Trail Half, which saw four Barrow Runners in the top 20. Also, good running by the Barrow contingent at the Shelton Striders 10k including PBs for Will and Julie Pattison, and Kath Spencer was 2nd F55.

Help Needed by Move Charity

The Leicestershire 10km is coming to Prestwold Hall on Sunday 28 October. MOVE are supporting the organisers by doing a Volunteer Takeover.

In the process RunThrough will make a generous donation to MOVE for each volunteer we provide. How amazing is that.

Move needs as many volunteers as they can get and roles include:

* Race registration and entry pack pick up

* Marshalling on the course

* Handing out water and snacks

* Giving out medals

* Helping out with the MOVE Stand.

If you are interested in helping please email Lewis Moses Thank you.

Hopefully we have included all Members racing over the last week. We always check results from all the races on our club calendar, but if you are racing further afield, please let us know how you got on either on Facebook or to before Sunday night to be included in this week's roundup.
