Weekend roundup – 25/26 August

Posted: August 27, 2013 by RSCAC in Race reports

Fred Tremblay had a great run on Sunday to win the 800m at the Stoke AC Open. In a mixed race which featured Emma Jackson (the 2012 UK runner up), Fred ran a time of 2.01.6 – a decent time given the windy conditions.

Fred was also in action at the BMC meeting at Coventry on the previous day where he ran a time of 1.59.4 to finish 3rd (with a characteristic strong finish). Theo Larcombe ran in the 1500m where he recorded a time of 4.27.18.

Well done Fred and Theo!

At the Ellesmere 10K, Russell Simpson ran a season’s best in 37’39 despite windy conditions. Well done Russell.

Well done to Andrea Deathridge who had a great run at the Coventry Godiva 5 mile road race (which doubled as the county champs). She ran a PB of 31.13 to win a Warwickshire County Championships silver medal and was also the first in her age group.

Paul Davey and Vici Richardson also had great runs. The results are available here.
