Training: Wednesday 25th April

We'll be going for a run round Watermead Park. Meet in the public car park off the roundabout in the centre of Birstall (Sibson Rd). Routes.

Capital Superstar!

Ludo

When talent and dedication come together, the result is sometimes spectacular. Those twin planets came into perfect alignment on Sunday in the person of our very own Ludo. Dr Daniels' most avid disciple achieved something very special on the streets of London; he eclipsed all but one previous Roadhogg Marathon time, recording a quite unbelievable 2.33.25 for 67th place. Mo would have hardly had time to book in for his post-race massage before Ludo was storming up the Mall. [Photo courtesy of Baz.]

Mark put the club place to good use with a 3.24, Dave B set a PB and Chris H paced himself perfectly to a sub-4 debut. And finally, little more than a year after falling off a forklift and having to be welded back together, Rich celebrated his recovery by passing the audition for the Marathon Club with flying colours.

Jerry Does the Double

Jerry Wilkes

The remarkable Jerry successfully defended his title in the 'A Coventry Way Challenge' 40 mile race. His 5.51 might have been slower than last year but he still won by 13 minutes; even the relay teams couldn't get anywhere near him! Don't forget his 100 mile Round Leicester challenge coming up in July; if he continues in this form we'll have to handicap him just to keep up.

Spring Marathons

James and Will

We had two men with sub-3 hour potential in action today. James Dunham chose the super-fast Manchester event and recorded a brilliant 2.58.37, coming in in 176th place. Will chose the bracing seaside air of Blackpool and his attempt was blown off course by a strong headwind in the final 4 miles along the prom. Keep the faith Will, none of us can beat the wind; it's only a matter of time before you do it.

Manchester was obviously the place to be because Paul Langham bagged himself a 3.48.38 PB, too.

Desford 6

Some good runs today; PB's for Mark R and Jon M, excellent debuts from Fabio and Natasha and a welcome return from Fi. Draft results.

Ludo Limbers Up

Ludo showed that his training has been going well, slicing over 5 minutes from his PB and picking up a magnificent 3rd spot in the popular Belvoir Half Marathon. Sam is also in great nick and he smashed his PB too, getting tantalisingly close to the magic 1.30 mark.

Charnwood Marathon

Strongman Jerry showed his class over the country in this toughest of county off-roaders. Not content with just the challenge offered by the event, he made his way to and from the start in Quorn by a combination of bike and bus. The course, which thankfully was pretty dry, takes you over some of Charnwood's highest points; Broombriggs, Beacon Hill, Bardon Hill and Old John. Throw in more stiles and kissing gates than you'd want in a lifetime and you'll get some idea of how good a performance is required to cover over 27 miles faster than most of us can do a flat road Marathon. This superb run was enough to earn him a well-deserved 3rd place.
