GoodGym Race Team News - Feb & March 2018
February made us shiver, in March the Race Team did deliver.
April 12, 2018
Hello, hello, hello,
Tom Benson’s report for Feb and March
In February and March the sun didn’t come out but the trainers sure did and how. Februarys and March racers have excelled with PB’s all over the shop even snow couldn't stop #Redthunder.
Half marathons seem to be a popular choice with great showings in the Brighton Half, the Big half, Tropical Thames Meander half and Colchester half to name a few. In February we bid farewell to the XC season with a trip to a very wet Trent Park and the national championship final in Hampstead heath. Hampstead was a glorious day full of mud and trees and Trent Park sounded like it was full of mud, not for the faint hearted that one. I even tried out my new spikes for the final one and although they were grand I still assumed my place amongst the fellas with grey hair. Mo Farah I am not. Trent Park.
Massive shout out to Matt from Greenwich who decided to run 4 marathons in 4 days!!! All I can say is I hope your feet were firmly put up after that adventure, well done, not to mention the other races you did in February and March (9 in total) you have earnt a magnum or two. Big shout out to Paul Bown , Ellen from Cardiff, Clare Griffiths and Matt Garnett for managing 5 in the two months.
Races to come
Marathon season is here, with options on trail, fell and road, so whatever takes your fancy there is a race to suit you.
First and foremost there is the Great Welsh Marathon, the second of our Big Six events and of course we love racing in Wales, but this time there will be no horses or trains to race just a few hundred other runners.
The following week we have the London Marathon and then the following week we have the Yorkshire 3 Peaks race. Good luck and believe in yourself and your training, and if you are not racing I am sure you will support each other both in person and online.
And then in May we have the Overseas trip to Bucharest, Romania – no more need be said, it will be an amazing trip.(see the 2016 - Bucharest photo below)
Additionally some of GoodGym is heading back to the Bath Two Tunnels as we ran last year as a big six event – hope it’s a cooler day than last year!
Welcome if you are reading this you have renewed your membership of GoodGym Race Team, it’s great to have you as part of the team for another year. Your pack from England Athletics will be with you shortly, but in the meantime login to my portal and check your details are correct.
Don't forget when you run a race to write a run report. It shares your achievements with the wider world, it can be an opportunity to reflect on what went well and not so well, and it provides a valuable resource of race ideas for next year. You will need to be a taskforce member or trainer to publish it, or send it into the raceteam email and we will put it up for you.
And now my favourite bit looking at all the races people have been achieving this past few months.
