The 'Run'down - 03 December 2018

The 'Run'down - 03 December 2018

Congratulations to the Barrow Runners Mixed Team who were Runners Up in Division 3 of the Leicestershire Road Running League. The fastest 4 men and 4 women for Barrow in each race score points for the team and we scored maximum points in 5 out of the 9 races! The league gave us 8 trophies to award to members for their participation at the league races and their performance towards our points total, so well done to: Karen Bell, Paul Bentley, Mike Coltherd, Vicky Elston, Richard Keep, Liam King, Lucie Nagar & Caroline Richardson.

Excellent running by Ben Plummer in the Edwinstowe Trail 10k saw him come 1st overall in 35:08. There was a strong Barrow contingent at Evesham Parkrun lead by Kristie Matthiae who was 1st Female. Monique Raaijmakers and Dave Phillipson were also 1st in their age categories, and Andrew Price was 3rd in his category - well done all!
