Race results

For todays read, we have our first guest writer giving a fabulous update of the Stamford 30k Valentines Race. A big thanks to Laura Graves who brings you this report from the February love-themed fixture.

This race always attracts runners looking for a spring marathon warm up. It’s a tough undulating course, 1.033ft of elevation, run on rural lanes.

10 Ivanhoe runners took part this year. First back, running with a cold, was Emily Wideman in an incredible time of 2.33.25. Andy Cole paced himself perfectly to achieve 2.33.33. Third home was Chris Osborne in 2.36.24. Next to storm to the finish was Mindy Ashton in a fabulous time of 2.46.27. Laura Graves struggled with the last couple of miles but was happy with 2.50.40. The next 5 ladies chatted their way round the course together. Team playing at its best! Sandra Lawless in 2.54.38, next saw Clare Wood and Victoria Smith with the same time of 2.55.10. Alex Gillon and Nancy Bennion both ran a strong race to finish in 2.55.52 and 2.56.07 respectively.
