12/06/2022 - Throwback to Swithland

Race results

The first edition of our Throw🔙 Series takes us to the Swithland 6️⃣; a popular fixture on the LRRL circuit, and the 2022 instalment was no exception. 17 Ivanhoes tackled the undulating course organised by Birstall Running Club that takes place on quiet rural roads around Swithland reservoir. 💦

First back for us was speedster Ramzi Sidani, running at 6 minute mile pace for a 36:02 and 41st position. Paul Woods was up next running inside the top 100 for 39:11, followed by Andrew Stanley running a personal best time by 11 seconds, previously held at the 2018 Adrian Smith handicap.

🧢 Louis Barnes was next up in 40:23, with Matt Joyce next in, celebrating the second PB of the day, 49 seconds being knocked off his time set at the same race way back in 2015. Mark Bradford and Damon Bland had him in their sights, finishing in 43:30 and 43:34 respectively.

Amelia Monaghan was our first female finisher, running the biggest PB of the day, taking 3 minutes 11 off her time from last years Adrian Smith handicap. Andrew Bottrill was next home in 46:21, followed by Bec Sharpe in 47:11 and Suzy Parish then running her debut 6 miler.

Lindsay Tilbury ran the penultimate PB on the day, on fine form across all distances this season, a 1 minute 11 improvement off her time from the last ever Barrow 6 event from 2016. Sue Tait finished next in 55:58, Lucy Allsop behind running really consistently over numerous events lately competing with 🧢 Gemma Shaw making a return to the race environment.

Sophie Turner was our final record breaking runner, bettering her 2019 Swithland time by 38 seconds, with Julie Henfrey being our next runner completing the distance squeezing under 1 hour 20.
