Time Trial No.1 – 27th March 2018
With the clocks having moved forwards, daylight finally greeted a club night for the first time in 2018. All around the Aspin estate, the ‘Caution Runners’ signs sprang up, signalling our first Time Trial of the year. An incredible 57 runners lined up to take on the hilly 3mile course, with James Ireland leading the field home in 18:43 chased hard by Martin Brock and Dan Foley in 18:55 and 19:09 respectively. Fastest Lady Nicola Carter rounded out the top 10 with a strong 21:30.
Even more incredible was the performance of our Zero-to-Hero graduates. Just a fortnight after their first competitive outing at Parkrun, 16 of our ‘Heroes’ tackled the course, welcoming a mud-free challenge and ‘relishing’ the cemetery hill climb! To quote one of our proud Z2K run leaders, Mark Shelton, “..they smashed it!”.
A massive ‘thank you’ to all those who marshalled and organised, especially tail runner Gaynor Downs!
