Chris Williams Reports.
was cold and wet ! London was never that bad !
But it was my fastest 10k for 3 years , not bad as i only decided to run at
4o'clock that afternoon and i was still recovering from a very drunken weekend
at Loftus Road watching Q.P.R.! but I definitely needed a burst on the banjo
after not really doing a lot since London but I was a bit gutted to be about 25
seconds off a PB . The conditions didn't help most runners after a quick time,
my sparring partner Henry Downes was about a minute out so all in all not such a
bad night. Well done to all those who took part and to those who didn't CHICKENS
Phil Gray Reports
'gene kelly was singin' in the rain. i kid you not. torrential did little to dampen the spirits of 800 plus runners at a wet and wild silverstone. it was good to see at least a dozen harriers participating and led in style by kevin willet. he did not disappoint on the night and turned in a blinding performance. he was looking for 34.30 and the club mv40 record but settled for an incredible 35.01 as 1st harrier home, and supported well by sean newbury and neil lovesey - 2nd and 3rd harriers respectively. larry was also on fire and turned in a cracking sub 50 time, and veronica was strutting her stuff as the 1st harrier lady to finish. yours truly got well and truly soaked as he captured harriers in action and welcomed the sight of hot tea and a mixture of rolls and sponge cake. yum! yum! for my tum. me and 800 plus welcomed this as the night reached a conclusion. remember - if you listen very carefully tonight, boys and girls, you can here gene kelly ' singing in the rain '.
