Event 138 – Report 16th October 2010

 A cold morning the day before the Cardiff Half Marathon…

… sees 139 finishers; among them we had 33 PBs and 15 first timers.

Since Cardiff parkrun started back in February 2008, we've had 2728 runners from 172 different clubs complete the race 15015 times covering a distance of 75075 kilometers.

In the men’s race, coming up to the first km mark were Michael Kallenberg (Carmarthen & District Harriers AC) and Nicholas Wood (Dartford Harriers AC), alongside Matt FURBER (Crawley AC), Stuart Crees (Les Croupiers) and Jerome Edwards (San Domenico). Just behind this group were Henry WRIGHT (Unattached), Gareth THOMAS (Cardiff Triathletes) and Julian BAKER (Les Croupirs) and Eliot Slade (Unattached).

Coming back to the 4km mark, Michael Kallenberg had now stretched out a lead of 15 seconds over Nicholas Wood, stretching slightly further over the last km to take first place in his first Cardiff parkrun. Another 15 seconds back in third place was Jerome Edwards, with a 20 second gap back to Stuart Crees and Matt Furber. Eliot Slade had moved up to 6th place at the 4km mark, but went on to take 4th place, beating Stuart and Matt, who took 5th and 6th respectively. Henry Wright took 7th ahead of Julian Baker and Gareth Thomas, with Rory Heslop (Unattached) rounding off the top 10.

The ladies race saw the top two runners remain the same from the 1km mark. Sarah Tunstall (Kendal AAC), running her first Cardiff parkrun, had already established a good lead over Charlotte Jane Wells (Brackla Harriers) at the first km marker. Jane Coker (Les Croupiers) and Sally Wilder (San Domenico) were the next two to cross the 1km mark together.

On the way back, Sarah Tunstall‘s gap was 30 seconds over Charlotte Jane Wells. Jane Coker crossed the 4km mark together with Sally Wilder, but Sally went on to take third place. Kate Coker (Barry & Vale Harriers) passed the 4km mark just ahead of Stephanie Davies (Pontypridd Roadents).
