Re: May Results and Reports


Just noticed that 5 out of 6 races in the recent Supersonic Series have been put in the 'other' category.
That makes sense for Races 1-3 : Beach, sand dunes, fields etc.
But given that Race 4 (Mersey Paradise 10K) was along riverside paths and Race 6 (Crock and Roll 10K) was along park paths, aren't these the equivalent to the Ralla and the Red Bull races in the ToM - which are counted in individual PLS results?


Re: May Results and Reports


Usually only include events with a UKA certificate in the specific distance championships. Trail runs are not included, even if on relatively good surfaces. Maybe I shouldn't have included the ToM events but judged them to be on tarmac so likely to be accurately measured.


Re: May Results and Reports

Sunderland City Half Marathon
Richard Costain 1:34:46

Ran this race as it was the home of my first ever road running race 5 years when I lived in the North East (The Sunderland 10K)
A scorcher of a day, really good memories of running around Sunderland as a running beginner...and a gentle reminder that Sunderland is certainly not flat.
A great morning.

Re: May Results and Reports

Supersonic Series

That makes sense, Andy. Thanks for the explanation.

I wouldn't want you to discount the two ToM races. To have 2/6 counting is fair given their surfaces (and therefore the ability to measure accurately).

Perhaps it's worth considering the 4th Race of the Supersonic Series (Mersey Paradise 10K), which was run on tarmac/concrete paths & roads along the Mersey, so it was a very clearly defined course?

Anyway, I'll leave it up to your judgement. The same will apply next year, as I suspect the event will attract an even bigger entry than the 15 PLS runners this year.

Sunny and warm evening, the tide was out and the lines on the beach were all bone dry, which made for some very quick performances.
Although Steve Saunders will always be sorely missed as an RO, the new management by Pensby RC is spotless, if only perhaps the taping in the woods section could have been placed better.
Shout out to all the ORC newbies...fantastic effort! Now for the proper stuff :mountain: :wink:

Strangely cool while we were running in the light, turned warm while we attended the presentation in the dark.
Robby and Annmarie (2nd W45) took home a box of veggies and fruits, a classic prize in a fell race of this calibre.
I could not contain the exuberance of the newly found running mojo from Mr Riley, who demonstrated that an excellent road running form translates very well in the gentle hills of Lancashire.
I'd love to see him doing the same in the fells...only time will tell :mountain: :muscle: :wink:
Another outstanding turnout by PLS, and I was very pleased to see some new/old faces (Nige) giving this off road malarkey another go :+1:

Next stop...
Race up the Beast 05.06, another one with classic prizes, such a massive bag of spuds for the biggest team, so shine your studs folks and get ready!

Re: May Results and Reports

55th Alex Cowin [& Matt Leigh] 09:34:42
64th Simone Capponi [& Karl Robb] 09:42:42

The weather forecast pre-race ranged from cloud all day to rain all day. In the end rain was promised in the afternoon, so most people started in long sleeves. I went with separate sleeves, as disapproved of by Nigel Grant, and was grateful as it turned out to be rather warm. A fast run out to Helvellyn saw us fall from first to sixth. Dan's hill legs broke around Dollywaggon Pike. Dan said he'd never run in that much pain for so many hours. He did pick-up on the way up Scafell Pike and we reached the top in 4th, only for Dan to dislocate his thumb on the slightly longer quad saving descent. Thumb back in place we started the hot climb to Coniston old man wondering where the rain was. The rain never came. A simple, unless you're Simone, run off Coniston with cramp on our heels saw us regain 4th. I was pleased to finish, with Dan repaying the favour and killing me on the tarmac road to the finish, and get the converted OCT Mug and T-shirt. A good day out.

Next year’s race will be held on Saturday 16th May 2020.

Copenhagen Marathon

Richard Costain 3:36:24

It may have been my slowest marathon for 2 years, it may have been a Danish heatwave and I may have tripped and fallen spectacularly in the race...but I absolutely loved this race!!!
An amazing atmosphere, an amazing course and an amazing city. The finish was just brilliant too.
The slower time didn't even matter - I got to take in everything around me - it really is the happiest city in the world. I was buzzing.
What a way to celebrate my upcoming 30th.

This was my 5th and slowest go at this one but I got to the finish running unlike many others and even did an extra mile jogging round the square in Marradi while I was waiting for my cousin to wake up and follow me to the end. It was a tough old thing because of lots of training setbacks but all the more one of life's great adventures for it.

The truly wonderful stat is that I was 22nd of 102 F50s. 102 mad old women who want to run over 60 miles. Isn't life grand?
