2017 Club Championship #1: Brass Monkey 10k

What a fantastic club turnout for the first race of the season. 19 club mates toed the start line for last Sunday’s Brass Monkey 10k at Rockingham Motor Speedway at Corby. The conditions first thing that morning were very icy but I’m sure by the time the race got underway the weak winter sunshine had made the conditions not too bad … at least it wasn’t howling a wintry gale and lashing with rain as in past years 🙂

First home for the club was Sean McAuliffe in 41:43. Sean’s showing some great form recently at the parkruns so its great to see that its translating to excellent times at the longer distance. Not far behind Sean was Lara Kristiansen finishing 3rd lady overall in a time of 42:18 – Congratulations both.

Well done everyone. There were some great performances but I do want to mention Jenny Pearson who had a great running weekend, bagging a 10k PB at the Brass Monkey after having achieved a parkrun PB the day before – brilliant stuff 🙂
