May the Fourth Be With You Half-Marathon – 4 May HM
What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than the May the Fourth Be With You trail half?
Incorporating "The Bump", a cheeky vertical 120m hill 7.5 miles in but rewarded with beautiful views over Shropshire. Superb medal too!
Prestwold Hall 5k – 2 May 5K
Following a half-marathon in mid-April, I headed back to Prestwold Hall for a 5km event rescheduled from last year. The day was dedicated to a series of 5km events, with the early ones in which I took part, being open events for all abilities. The later races were dedicated to seriously fast club runners and elite athletes.
It was a small field of only 25 club runners for my 5km race and despite being for all abilities, the pace was keen as we set off along the WWII RAF Wymeswold airfield runway and then looped around an encircling race track. I finished middle of the pack and after reinserting my lungs was pleased with a sub-19 minute performance.
