The last four months have definitely been a busy period for the members of Evolve 🙂
John Stocker has led from the front. He won his first race at the Thames Ring 250, completing the 250 miles in a new course record – fantastic achievement 🙂
He has also put in strong performances at the Centurion SDW100 in June and the NDW100 in August. There is no stopping John and he came third in the Canal Grand Slam, consisting of the Grand Union Canal Race (145 miles), Kennet to Avon Canal Race (145 miles) and the Liverpool to Leeds Canal Race (130 miles). So far this year, John has run 1,345 miles in races – Wow!
Not to be out done, Leanne Stocker got a PB in the NDW50 in May and ran the furthest on her own at the 54321 Salisbury in August. Young Emelie completed her first Centurion race in June. Great running ladies 🙂
May was a busy month for members. Kelly Sawyer completed the Blenheim 7k followed by the Town & Gown the next weekend. There was a great turnout at the Town & Gown, others who ran it included Clare Varney, Hannah Fraser, Karen McGill, Kate Peacock, Louise Workman, Tim Ball and Tim McGill.
Also in May was the Shakespeare marathon ran by Edward Peacock and Gary Anderson, with Ian Cripps completing the half marathon. Great running from all 🙂
June was a quiet month, but Sue Manhood completed the Ridgeway Revenge with third place in her age group, and Kelly Sawyer completed the Lollop 10K.
July included several firsts. Sammy Sutter won her first race at the Adderbury Spires – fantastic achievement 🙂
Sophie Barnes and Kim Foy both ran their first 10K at the Race for Life – congratulations to you both 🙂
There was also the Milton Keynes 10K, run by Cass Barnett, Clare Varney and Karen McGill. What a great month of running 🙂
The Headington 5 miles was held in August and completed by Sammy Suter and Lawrence Webb. Lawrence was running his first race since school and smashed the race, a massive achievement considering he could hardly walk on the treadmill when he joined Evolve due to a bad injury. Well done to both Lawrence and Sammy 🙂
Sue Manhood also completed the Thames Meander despite her calf muscle going on her in the first two miles.
What a fantastic four months everyone has had – keep up the good work 🙂
