Whats going on...

Well further to comments at the AGM I'm having a play to try and make this page more of a current news "what's going on" for Harwich Runners. So far I've added a Twitter feed & facebook is sitting in the background. A short version of the events calendar is on its way....

ReportIt was a cold frosty day that greeted the competitors at the Harwich Parkrun on Saturday. Despite the sun shining the temperature hardly moved off zero. Of the seventy seven who took part thirty four were members of Harwich Runners. Once again the first male and female finishers were club members. Simon Day was first back to the bandstand in the park in 18.59. New club signing Tim Brand was close behind in 19.11. Once again first lady finisher was Parkrun regular Claudine Benstead in 21.16, sixth finisher overall. First junior was club member Michael Knowles, eleventh finisher in 23.03. Ellie Haynes only ten days ago had her appendices removed; she has made a rapid recovery from the operation and finished second lady, not too far off her best in 23.45. Four weeks ago Kim Pretty set a new Personal Best, (PB) of 23.50, in his last two runs he has been within two seconds of beating that. This week he achieved his goal and set a new best of 23.49. Mike Ball started the year with an aim of running sub 25 minutes. By the end of February he had achieved that and set new targets. By mid September he had a best of 24.04. During his last ten Parkruns he has achieved seven PBs, this week going sub 22 minutes for the first time to record 21.59, probably faster than he thought possible at the beginning of the year. Harwich Runners were due to compete in the fourth race in the 53-12 cross country league on Sunday at Halstead. As with so many sporting events, due to the bad weather it had to be postponed until March.

Whats happened to the old running man, well he's still going but now hidden away here
