Wimborne 10 and a Half in Gosport
So today saw a few of our club runners turning up to do the Wimborne 10 for their very important hats. The weather was good and there were some PBS smashed. Well done to Leyton Green for being the 1st man back, followed by Graham Still at 1.09 and 3rd man back was Terry Byrne. 1st lady back was Catherine Thompson Hansford, followed by Nat Robins, who smashed her PB by over 5 mins, followed by Emma Machen. Trevor Strelley And Stephen Warren ran together for their hats and I set trev the challenge of beating my PB of 1.26, which he smashed when he confidently came over the finish line with a time of 1.24. Well done to all who ran, enjoy getting ur hats at awards night xx Daz Swithenbank Luke Hicks Andrew Brown Martin Alderman.
Gosport Half Marathon
From Kev Doherty:
We had a miniature Club Tour on the South coast today... a bit Chilly as 6 Green and Whites headed into Gosport .. ( except Kev Brettle who was bedded down along the road).
It was a big day for Claire Shucksmith Elspeth Fontana & Louise Hallett who were doing their first Half Marathon and some anxiety was clear... no need as all 3 did fantastic.. it was a great 2 lap course pretty flat plenty of support and water stations.. a really friendly atmosphere too. ( a 15-minute delay at start was unfortunate ) However, we were soon off and running Louise even had her own pacer today ( Kevin Doherty) he had a sore heel and wanted the medal he paid for 😀.
Kevin Brettle ran an unbelievable race with a new PB of 1:27:16 he is getting faster week by week ... well done👍.
Joanna Henley put in another solid result in her 2018 London Marathon build.
Another great day for YTRRC on tour.
Well done all of you especially the 3 half marathon debutants.

Day at the Movies
Saturday I was back at the Elbridge Leisure Centre for the Day at the Movies Challenge. A six-hour event on an 8 lap out and back along the Thames. Managed to come in third as well.
Then today I did the Autumn Riverside Marathon the other way down the Thames but only 4 out and backs.
PUB RUN – SHERBORNE (16TH November 2017)
Of the two main groups, the slower one set off west along Lenthay Road. The houses and lights ran out, and the road turned to mud. We continued right running through deeper mud, passed the old Dairy House, and came up to Bradford road. Right and right, we turned into Gainsborough Drive. The paved path came out opposite the shops. Heading east, following roads and paths, we came out on Horsecastles Lane. More paths and roads took us to Acreman Street. There was a resonance of parks, sports fields, and big old buildings brightly lit up. We slogged to the top of Acreman Street and met up with the faster group. After a while were hill climbing up Blackberry Lane and reached the old Mermaid. We climbed further, passing the school which was brightly lit up for sport. We turned down Castle Town Way, and stopped at the houses half way down. We zig-zagged through the estate and came to Coldharbour. Crossing over, we ran down North Road, and St Swithin’s Road then turned right and ran along Long Street to the Abbey. The last leg was along Horsecastles back to the pub. The run was just over 6 miles. Thanks to all who came along.
