South Cheshire Air Products 10K

Sunday 21st April 2019

Race Report by Leon Stringer

To Crewe for South Cheshire Harriers’ Air Products 10K. Two laps round an industrial estate in a former railway town on Easter Sunday won’t be much fun surely? Actually it was! It’s well organised with race HQ at the Manchester Metropolitan University campus with plenty of parking. It’s well supported with a lot of runners taking part. And it has a nice, friendly atmosphere. However the temperature was already climbing in the bright sunshine which would make it hard work. A lot of the course was in the sun with only a few sections in shade with a gentle breeze to alleviate the heat. It’s mainly a trek round an industrial estate but even that seems more pleasant on a sunny day and there’s a short section through woodland. Despite the non-residential area there was support around the course both from spectators and the friendly marshals. 326 runners took part.

Results (chip times):
1 M Jonathan Hiley (Unaffiliated) 31:23

Lilleshall 5m

Wednesday 17th April 2019

Race Report by Mel Deakin

This race is the first in the Sexarathon series organised by Telford AC. You can enter the series of races, or each race individually. This race was totally sold out this year, and I can understand why, it is a great midweek race in beautiful surroundings, starting and finishing at the National Sports Centre. I ran this last year and this time Mark decided to run as well. The first part of the course is downhill, which of course means uphill to the finish! Still a great run though, and a nice change to run a five miler. Next in the series is the Phoenix Flyer 5k in Dawley on 15th May.

Jack Peaker Fordhouses 5k

Friday 12th April 2019

Race Report by Mel Deakin

I can’t believe 3 years has passed since the three of us last competed at this event. It is a flat, fast 5k run starting at Fordhouses Cricket Club in Wolverhampton, running on a mix of canal towpath and pavements through the local area. Great if you want to challenge yourself over the distance and do something outside parkrun. It was as well organised as ever by Wolves and Bilston AC. Despite Ben and Mark both finishing ahead of me (but not by much!) it was a great Friday night run out.

1st Chris Perrin Cannock and Stafford AC 15:35

1st female Scarlett Williams Wolves and Bilston AC 18:29

59th Ben Deakin Stafford Harriers 22:24

67th Mark Deakin Stafford Harriers 23:05
