More PBs at Markeaton! Simon Edwards will be starting to eye up that elusive sub-20 after smashing his previous best by 18 seconds to clock 20:26. John Potter risked messing up his duathlon on the following day by emptying the tank for an 18:47 finish, 11 seconds faster than his previous best at Markeaton. Mark Crawshaw wanted another sub-20 and that’s exactly what he got with 19:57, the third time running he’s ducked under 20 minutes at Markeaton. James Watson snuck round undetected in 23:49, and we mean snuck (as nobody realised he was there!), except for maybe his daughter, Kate Watson, who clocked 26:21. Tanya Rountree put in yet another solid performance, 28:59.
Meanwhile, Brian Clements was down in London flying the flag for Wirksworth at the Crystal Palace parkrun. Brian’s running just keeps getting better and he went under 25 minutes for the fifth time this year with 24:52.
