Jolly Jaguars 10K

Our very own autumn 10K proved a huge hit with all concerned: state-of-the-art chip timing, seamless and real-time results, a beautiful spread of post race, mouth-watering goodies on show for the 10k’ers. A full-house of “Grovesie’s” (Race Director) helpers even meant that some members had the privilege of running the race – 9 members in fact! GO JAGS!

First in was Mel “Back to his Roots” Porter, who has found a new lease of life running the “fast stuff” finishing in a chip time of 42:01 (Gold).

In her first ever 10K for herself and the Club, on a most healthy diet of speedy Catton Parkruns and pacing assistance from Sze-Ming Cheung, Alexandra Bland managed to etch herself in the record books with a chip time of 46:01 (Silver). Although one second off gold standard, at the first time of asking, she broke the women’s 35-39 age category record by 23 seconds. May this streak long continue, Alexandra!

Other First timers at the distance for the Club were Tom Johnson, Ben Gaskins and Scott Shrubsall.
