2013/14 TBH Winter Grand Prix: Race 1 Results

The 2013/14 Winter Grand Prix got off to a flying start as Marc Fenwick flew around the 5k quayside route to post a new course record of 15:44.

And hopes of a record turn-out exceeded all expectations as final runner, Paul Brown, crossed the finishing line in 104th position.

With such a huge turn-out, including several runners who turned up unexpectedly asking if they could compete, trying to guess the identity of first past the finishing line proved to be a challenge in itself.

Could DD2 repeat his great performance in the final race of the Summer Series?

Did Kev Jeffress have anything left in his legs following superb runs in the Great North Run and Northern Road Relays?

But as it turned out, following a few weeks taking things easy due to injury  – and eating plenty of cake as part of his recovery process (his words not mine – DD) – Marc Fenwick returned to action in spectacular fashion, knocking two seconds off the previous course record.

For the ladies, Sophie Marr was first over line in a time of 20:04, with Becky Harrison and Heather Robinson (guest runner) finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively.

But just as pleasing as attracting a record attendance was the performance by several of the competitors.  Many made light work of the blustery conditions along the quayside and posted Personal Bests.

Congratulations to everyone who ran a PB.

Special thanks to all the members who volunteered as marshals and to the organising team for ensuring the event went off without incident.

      I was wondering why my time hasn’t appeared on PoT but I guess that might be why! :-)

    Steph, I’ve asked PO10 and Run Britain to update the records. They are usually pretty quick at doing this sort of stuff. Sorry for the mix up.
