With the sun shining down and perfect running conditions, just after 8:00am, the 25 Boxted Runners made there way to the Colchester United Stadium for the 2019 Colchester Half Marathon.

It was a day of teamwork, inspirational stories, unbelievable support, fantastic times, and many, many PB’s.

The team lined up ready for the off at 9:00., the runners representing the Boxted Runners were;

Stephen Ames, Chantel brooks, Jennifer Carter, James Collitt, Lou Coy, Becky Day, Vanessa Dolling, Karl Graves, Derren Hamon, Charlene Hearn, Sarah Hearn, Jacquie King, Kelly Luther, John Perry, Tania Stacey, Kelly Smith, Aubrey Todd, Wing-Mei Ung, Armand Vigors, Kate Wills, James Wilson, Charlotte Worrow, Catherine Davies & Claire Moore

Everyone performed fantastically well, with Armand leading the amazing Boxted runners Home.

The support and noise made by the other Boxted Runners around the course was phenomenal and really spurred all the runners on. It gave all of the runners that extra burst of energy, especially coming down the long Straight Road back down to the stadium finish.

All in all it was an amazing Day !

On Saturday at Parkrun, due to the CHM, we only had 3 Boxted Runners, one at Highwoods, and two at Castle Park. A Big well done to Sue who ran a great 5K to achieve a new PB.
