9 Roundshaw Runners on tour – plenty left at home.

by Tim Gray (Chiltern Church Runners & Collingwood AC)

Let's start at home - and |Tom Higgs put in his 58th first finish of 240 runs, only 7 more to overtake Neil Reissland (presuming he doesn't pop by and add some more to his tally).

Only 3 PB's today;

Claire Chandler, Amanda Francis & Carol Johnson - all with less than 20 runs at Roundshaw, though Claire has 18 - so a tough day to get a personal best - well done on achieving it.

Not one brand new runner - nil - zero - zip. So bring your friend(s) next week!

Some Visitors though;

Nick Chick of Brighton and Hove, Steven Rudland of Wimbledon Common, Mark Brown of Preston park Brighton, Kerry Hill of Finsbury park and Matt Newell of Lloyd. Welcome all.

None of them tourists though, why not? Probably the huge tourist gathering at Wendover Woods a 'mini Cowfest' of Cow Cowells, news of which can be found here for those interested;


We had a lot of fun - and an awful lot of cake! Fully 9 of those runners called, or still call, Roundshaw home - some of us will be back next week, others will keep on touring.

Celebrating back at Roundshaw were two fab Centurions hitting 100 runs this week;

Glen Smith and Robert Allum - great work, and Glen Ninja Runner Boy asked me to send you a special well done!
