Deal Half Marathon 2012 (RESCHEDULED) (13th May 2012)

Start time: 10.30

Location: Fowlmead Country Park Sholden Near Deal Kent CT14 0BF

Host: Deal Tri

 

In a field of almost 250 runners, 18 TRAC members finished today’s rescheduled Deal Half Marathon, the fifth in this year’s Kent Grand Prix and Club Championships series. On a far tougher course than I remember from last year, Andy Stevens and Chris Brenchley ran well to put disappointing runs at London behind them, whilst John Cooper began his taper for the 145miles Grand Union Canal run by beating 1hr 40mins. There were several new personal bests, including for Steve Clarke, who repeated the feat from Whitstable last Monday, Andy Carter, Mark Chapman and Mark Hadden – well done all, and apologies if I’ve missed any others. Just mail me and I’ll credit you accordingly!

Well done everyone - full results below. I’ll have the fall out for the Grand Prix and the club championships in due course, but both Sarah and Pam look to have continued the Ladies’ scoring streak, whilst the men have again recorded another six scoring runners.

Thanks to Chris Brenchley for the photos now on the above race page – if anyone would like a full resolution image, Chris is happy to share, so just drop me a line and I’ll pass on your details.

There’s little respite until the next race – next Sunday 20th May is the Larkfield 10k. Once again, it would good to get as many of the club out as possible. It looks like pre-entries have closed, but on the day is still likely to be available – I’ll check later in the week.

Every year, our friends at triathlon club Deal Tri organise a number of excellent road running events, including the Deal Dinosaur 10K, the Deal Castle 5-miler and the Deal Half Marathon.  The younger members of Thanet Roadrunners AC traditionally turn out in force for the well-organised junior races that accompany these senior races and they have generally performed very well over the past few years. 

The latest renewal of the Deal Half Marathon, on Sunday 13th May 2012, was no exception.  The 54-runner field for the Junior 1500m race included six TRAC members, (along with five-year-old Elijah Moir, trotting along in the mascot’s role once again!)

The category places and race times achieved by the TRAC athletes taking part were as follows:

 

Oliver Cooper

1st U16 Boy

4:54

Caine Moir

1st U14 Boy

5:02

Alfie Grafton

2nd U14 Boy

5:06

Henry Swandale        

1st U12 Boy

5:14

Rebecca Hales

1st U12 Girl

5:50

Hughie Coleman           

1st U10 Boy

5:22

 

Oliver’s sub-5:00 performance was the third of the weekend for TRAC Juniors, following Rob Morris at the Kent Track & Field Championships and Ben Pond at the National Biathlon Championships in Birmingham.
