Sunday saw yet another challenge completed by RTS at one of the country’s most prestigious running events - the Blaydon Race. The race attracts 4000 competitors to the streets of Newcastle with a fast road course leading down to the finish in Blaydon. On a sweltering day the first man over the line was Boniface Kiprop K in a time of 26:26 (26:22 chip time), the first lady home was Perendis Lekepana in a time of 29:55 (29:51 chip time).

The second of the Jane Tomlinson events took place yesterday with the running of the Hull 10k. Owing to a last minute problem with the course the route was reduced to 8.8k which explains the very quick times! Over 2,700 took part and Dean Jerome won with a time of 29:51 while the first woman, Katie Meredith, arrived at the finish in 32:38. Full results are HERE. See you at the Pennine 10k in two weeks!
Today saw RTS complete their first event for the Jane Tomlinson foundation. A sell-out, event the Leeds Half Marathon attracted 6,000 sign-ups including a corporate relay. With mixed conditions and a testing course the winning runner, Ben Marriott, completed the course in 1:13:12 with first lady finisher Lisa Mawer in 1:24:47. A fantastic event with a great atmosphere for all involved and we look forward to their next event, the Hull 10k next weekend.
What a stark contrast to last year's torrential rain and wind for the second running of the Milton Keynes Marathon. Fantastic weather made everyone at the event so much more relaxed, and that included us timing the event!
A field of nearly 3000 took part and the wins went to Edward Catmur (Thames Hare and Hounds) in 2:46:59 and Andrea Green in 3:04:23.
