March Race Round up

Posted by Rob White on 3 April 2018

As the spring racing season gets into full swing, some very unspring like conditions dominated much of the month with the Oakley 20 just one of the many races that were lost to the weather. That did not stop our intrepid runners getting out there to perform though. The Milton Keynes Festival of Running was well represented with 24 Olney Runners taking part across the 5k,10k, and half marathon distances. There were great performances in every race, with Helen Shakespeare completing her first 10k race.

This month’s grittiest performers were Jo Marshall and David Shakespeare who took on the Ashridge Boundary Run in truly terrible conditions, in what is a challenging race at the best of times they both battled through 16 miles of freezing winds and sideways rain! Sounds like great fun!

The last weekend of the month was a busy one with the Bedford 20, London Landmarks Half Marathon and British Duathlon taking place. The inaugural Bedford 20 race had six OR's representing as they tune up for various marathon attempts. The London Landmarks half marathon is also a brand-new race and attracted an amazing 16 runners from the club, congratulations to Lindsay Butcher who managed to knock an impressive 10 minutes off her previous best and put it all down to the great Group 3 coaching from Amanda, so well-done Amanda as well!

Lastly we had two super results at the British Duathlon championship at the Bedford Auto dome with Helen Margetts claiming 2nd place in her age group and John Risby taking 5th place for his age category.

Well done to everyone who got out there and raced and with a busy April ahead I look forward to hearing about everyone’s race tales (good and bad).
