Members rewrite own personal records at their respective events
Ryston Runners members were again in record-breaking form at three major road races on Sunday.
Several club representatives rewrote their own personal records at their respective events.
The shortest distance of the day attracted the highest number of competitors from Ryston, with almost a dozen lining up for the Run for All Lincoln 10k, in what several described as almost perfect conditions.
The mainly flat course enabled at least a quarter of them to knock lumps off their previous best times for the distance.
After Adam Matthews had run 35.04 for 35th place overall as the first club member across the line, Oliver Foxwell stormed home.
Foxwell ran some four minutes faster than at the same event last year, and knocked a minute off his personal best to break 37 minutes for the first time and his 36.50 placed him 68th overall.
Kevin Farquhar continued to make huge inroads towards breaking 40 minutes, with a new PB of 40.08 for 184th place.
Next home, Martin Heeley (M40) was 232nd overall, knocking 44 seconds off his previous best to clock 41.11.
Not far behind, Ben Foxwell, despite having suffered from a recent cold and injury, clocked 41.36 for 251st .
Tony Savage (M50) clocked 43.45 for 423rd and John Bowen (M40) 46.52 for 766th.
Emma Wilding and Gavin Reynolds, running together, just dipped over the line in under the hour, with 59.46 and 59.47 respectively.
Charles Wilson (M40) 2,898th in 62.00 and Ivan Nunn (M60) 2,919th in 62.19, finished closely together.
Wendy Farquhar (W50) completed the Ryston contingent with 69.47 in 3,754th place.
The Larking Gowen City of Norwich Half Marathon featured three Ryston members in its finishing list.
The first Ryston runner home was Ian Milburn, 162nd in 1.34.33.
Lorena Latisaite was placed 294th in 1.40.30 and new member Alan Bartrum (M40) made his debut over the distance with the club by achieving a new PB by more than a minute, clocking 2:10:12 to finish 1,217th.
Just one Ryston Runner featured in the results of this year’s Asics Greater Manchester Marathon.
After an injury-hit build-up to the event, Paul Carter (M45) finished in 5,197th place in 4.05.44.
