There has been a flurry of activity of the last few weeks with Grangemouth 10k, the National 5k Championships and some impressive marathon performances. The leaderboards are starting to take shape as athletes put down times.
In the Men’s completion, Paul Emery has taken an early lead with some great performances over 5k, 10k and the half marathon. The ubiquitous Paul Dudchenko is also in the podium places alongside John Redding. However, it’s tight at the top and there are lots more races to go.
Charlotte Moran leads the Women’s competition with Mandy Cazes and Frances Wood following in hot pursuit. Again, only 1 or 2 points separates podiums from the minor placings.
In the Handicap competitions, places are being decided literally by seconds and championship leaders Paul Emery And Charlotte Moran are high up in the standings - are they thinking about the clean sweep this early in the year!?! Mandy Cazes, In her first full club championship year, is impressively leading the way.
If your name doesn’t appear in the handicap table and you think it should, then perhaps you haven’t shared your handicap time? Please email John Redding with your best 5k or 10k time of 2018 and you will be added to the list.
Good luck to all athletes and next up in the Dumyat Hill race (8/5). Don’t forget you can also do any half marathon or marathon and it will be included.
