Short Course - A busy time for the contenders

Short Course Championship Positions - Summer Sizzler 5k

Conditions were favourable for good times but Short Course Championship leaders, Julie Scholey and Oli Williams were determined to cement their advantage over their rivals.

 However, the night was an extremely memorable one for our new recruit, Martin Rees as he cruised to a time of 16:06, a two second reduction of his existing M60 World record for this distance.

In the Female Championship, can the ever youthful, Julie Scholey be caught? In response, Hazel Craven has surged into second position and Claire Jones has improved her position to sixth.

In the Male Championship, Oli Williams has maximum points and his position seems secure but Nick Tulp is really enjoying his late challenge for a podium position.

 An interesting period remains with three events (+2 x best of ...) still up for grabs.

Long Course Championship Road Races 2014 amendment

There is a slight change to the initially selected races for the Long Course Championship.

The 16th March is a very popular date in the race calendar with three events at least on this particular Sunday - Atlantic College 10k, Gloucester 20 and Road Relays in Pontypridd.

Consequently, the sub committee have agreed to replace the Atlantic College 10k in the Long Course Championship with The Richard Burton 10k, Cwmavon on the 2nd November 2014. This race also adds to the races in the latter stages of the racing calendar and dovetails with the Run Wales Series.

However, this does not prevent members from running the Atlantic College but should ease the congestion/priorities of some of our members.
