It was the first cake night, the first Fartlek and the first beep test of the year this week! A great first full week back with the second Friday Morning run too.
Big news from Katharine Smith. She received confirmation through of her match funding and raised a stonking amount for both our club charity for 2019/20, Reclaim Life, and another local charity, KidsOut by running seven half marathons in 2019. Well done Katharine. You smashed it!
On parkrun day we had LFRs at Southsea, Ashford, Milton Keynes (where Matthew Ma came in first!), Linford Wood, Sewerby, Houghton Hall, Rushmere, Ellenbrook Fields, Fire Service College, Dunstable Downs and Bearbrook (where Kerry Garfitt came in first lady!) At home in Rushmere, Catherine Thackray ran ANOTHER PB. Is that two weeks in a row, Catherine? Well done!
Getting their own muddy trails in at Cliveden were Mr and Mrs Smith...
And finally...the cross countey season came to and end with Race 5 at Dunstable. It was the muddiest, sloppiest, most brutal, but amazingly fun race. Results on the day: Men 4th; Ladies 8th; and Team 6th.
And with the final race came the final results and the best season LFR have ever had! Results.....
Overall league results:
Tom Ellerton 3rd 25-29
Martin Crane 3rd 45-49
Mike Clark 3rd 60-64
Paul Thomas 3rd 70-74
Rosie booth 2nd 40-44

A brillaint team result and some fantastic individual results from LFR! Great racing team.
We also had some members making huge progress across the season. Everyone made such an effort. Well done.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and made the season what it was and of course, a massive thank you to JAne and Tracy - cross country extraodinaires - for looking after us all season!
Until next season...
See you next week, LFR!
