Past Races

Tadley 10k, Tadley
10k, Road
1st Reading Roadrunner, 4th Overall. 75 degrees F plus, breezy day and lumpy course. Felt pretty good despite having fallen over and bruising myself massively 2 days prior on training run. Got dehydrated as I didn't take water. Mike Bradfield outsurged me to the line (made break at 9k) & got outsprinted in last 20 yards by A. N. Other. I shouldn't have made the pace for majority of the race. Backed off training for 2 days before race but no major drop in mileage of density of sessions.


Southern Men's League Divison One, Match 4. Palmer Park, Reading

5k, Track
2nd B String. Temperature mild to warm, mild winds. Too fast a start, got jockied then isolated. Felt knackered from stressfull build up (job interview plus stacks of driving). Good performance given how I felt.


Southern Men's League Divison One, Match 3. Down Grange Track, Basingstoke.
5k, Track
4th Overall (1st B String). Nominated B string, Toby Lambert running as A string. Temperature cool, mild winds, drafted well, ran a very savy, tactical race. In total control. Eased off, but no real taper.


Wargrave 10k, Wargrave.
10k, Road
1st Reading Roadrunner, 3rd Berkshire Senior Male, 5th Overall. Right knee sore, first half of the course up hill, breezy day. Legs felt dead from 300m out (!!!), average sort of run really. Backed off training for 2-4 days before race but no taper as such.


Southern Men's League Divison One, Match 2. Down Grange Track, Basingstoke.
5k, Track
