Balsall Common 5k and 10k.
Report – Phil Brennan.
The Balsall Common 10k was the last but one in the 11 race seasonal series of the Warwickshire Road Race League. Six of our hardy club runners took part in the changeable conditions.
First home was Luke Watkins, 129th, 47:17, followed by Under 23 Annie Cox, 144, 48:12.
Beverley Brigden, 203, 52:26, seems to have improved with almost every road race this season, so it wasn’t a surprise that this was another PB.
Ruth Calderbank, 278, 58:16, kept her hopes alive for an overall series prize, while there were solid performances from Pippa Abrams, 298, 58:58, and Tash Watkins, 355, 1:07:21
Alongside the 10k race, the event also hosts both an adult and junior 5k race.
To those following his progress, it was no surprise that Alex Adams won the junior race in 17:52, nearly two minutes ahead of the opposition.
Stalwarts John Butler (117th, 35:35) and Cindy Brittan (139th, 38:02), made up the Stratford contingent.
