Athletic Open Meetings
In the past we have gone over to Loughborough University where Charnwood Athletic Club have held a series of Open Meetings over the summer months. These races are open to any athlete to try something a bit shorter and faster over a good surface.
All the meetings are on Wednesdays with the first on May 7th at 6.30pm. June 4th, July 9th and August 13th are the other dates.
Another local 10k in the north of the county where Zach Naylor, Andy Nash and Ron Ilsley all had strong runs. Over a hilly course and windy conditions Ron returned in 42mins 1sec, Zach in 45mins 12secs and Andy in 47mins 16secs.
No doubt in the coming months all three will be getter near to their personal bests and even getting new personal bests.
