BADGERS Prepare for Presentation Evening with a few PBs

Adie Payne at Kingsbury Water parkrun - BADGERS
Friday is the day of this year’s end of season presentation evening and with just a handful of weeks left before the race calendar contracts for the winter, many BADGERS took the opportunity to capitalise on the beneficial weather conditions to race one more time before the big do.

At Kingsbury Water Park parkrun, Dave Jackson ran a fine 17:59 to finish in 6th place, Adrian Payne (pictured) returned to find some of his best form once again as he weighed in with a time of19:45 to finish 14th overall. Ashley Taylor and Richard Hill (incredibly his 119th event) both finished narrowly ahead of Abbie Liddle who finished first lady in a fine time of 23:36. Leesa Dennis continued her incredible improvement by running her 8th consecutive personal best of 30:21. Will Cartwright, John Savin-Baden, John Hanson, stumbling Stuart Walton, ageless Alan Argyle, Janet Crumpton (PB) Nikki Aldridge, Gemma Hall and Jill Callis (PB) all ran well. Karen Missen continued her comeback from injury while Serena Baker ran her 32nd parkrun but her first with young daughter Holly who successfully navigated the 5km course for the very first time. At Conkers, Jason Husselbee-Orwin was the sole BADGERS representative running just outside of his personal best in 24:23.

In the Milford Mash Up trail 10k Carl Holyoak led the Badger charge finishing in 45:21 with Jared Karim 46:06 and Dave Earp 48:42 in close pursuit. The softly spoken Rachel Crump finished 4th lady in the race in a great time of 48:17 while young youth Lily Bowman 63:44 and marginally more experienced Judy Parkes 65:59 both competed gamely.

Phil Jordan made the trip to York running in the Plusnet 10mile event that ran alongside the popular marathon there. The veteran runner clocked an excellent 69:34 on the day – a credit to his stamina and fitness. At the nearby Tamworth 10K, Dave Earp ran a personal best of 44:13 while newcomer Alex Rous followed suit with a stunning PB of her own. Her time of 53:52 proving just how far she has come since joining the North Warwickshire club. The classy Anne Wells finished 24th lady in a fine time of 52:13, Abbie Liddle too ran a fantastic 47:42 ensuring that she was once again the first female Badger back in the sett.

Meanwhile, ploughing a lonely furrow at the Cinder Path 10k was seasoned campaigner John Hanson, who completed the course in a gritty 51:56 with an added note to self about running the rest of the race as successfully as he did the hill finish may result in a higher placing in future years! Aaron Chetwynd continued to perform well on the OCR circuit by finishing in 9th place in the Survival of the Fittest race – another top ten placing for the up-and coming Baddesley athlete.
