This week saw the first half Marathon of the season for Boxted runners with Tania Stacey taking part for Boxted Runners in a chilly but gloriously sunny Great Bentley Half Marathon on Sunday – Finishing in a great time of 1:50:27 coming in 355 place out of 666 runners.

The Saturday Parkrun this week was a very cold affair following a night of sub-zero temperatures and snow, with many of the regions Parkruns cancelled, after a early morning inspection Colchester Castle Parkrun was passed to stay on. Steve Ames and Becky Day took part for Boxted Runners, and again produced some great runs, with Becky (21:59) coming in as 1st Female and 1st in category, and Steve (20:41) 10th Male and 1st in Category.

Great running once again by the Boxted Runners, Well done all who were out for a run ths week.

Back at the club run on Sunday as a trial, we hired the Village hall for the first time, offering a rest-bite from the cold both before and after the run. Let us know your thoughts on this, and if you feel we should do this on a more regular basis.

If you want to be included in the race report each week, please make sure you let us know the races being attended, and that you have Boxted Runners down as your club when entering.
