More Records Tumble As TR24 Looms Close

Newham 10k 2015 - BADGERS
The week prior to the Adidas Thunder-run 24 hour team event, in which BADGERS are set to field a number of different teams, many runners were in action setting new personal bests and even breaking the odd club record. In the Worthington 5 near Ashby, Dave Jackson recorded a new PB for the 5 mile distance clocking an impressive 29:30 in 11th place overall. Chris Horton finish one place and two seconds behind Jackson improving his own V40 club record in the process. Adi Payne ran an excellent 32:35 (PB) while Alan Argyle continued his excellent form setting a new V60 club record with his time of 40:11 and the determined Serena Baker ran her heart out to finish in 40:25.

At Kingsbury Water Park parkrun, the latest batch of graduates from the BADGERS successful couch to 5k programme debuted in glorious sunshine to round off an excellent day at the event which celebrated its second anniversary with a charity relay in memory of popular park-runner Chris Groom who sadly passed away earlier this year. In the main run, Dave Jackson clocked a fantastic new PB with a time of 17:31 and once again, team mate Horton finished one place and two seconds behind with a PB and new V40 club record of his own (17:33). Luke Miles ran a personal best in 23:12 along with Ed Winter (23:33 - PB), Stuart Walton (25:09 – PB), Louise Winter (32:27 – PB) and Sharron Fisher (35:44 – PB). David Earp, Ashley Taylor, Simon Butlin, John Savin- Baden and Serena Baker all ran sub 25 minutes. Other runners included Jason Husselbee-Orwin, Robert Frost, Adie Kirkham, Nikki Aldridge (PB), Alan Argyle, Anna Savin-Baden, Casey Stevens (PB), John Hanson, Karen Missen, Pete Boardman, Michelle Withey (PB), Sarah Murrell, Pete Wells, Carolyn Hall, Gemma Hall and the popular BADGERS founder Nivette Chester.

Elsewhere Phil Jordan made a welcome return to action after injury and finished 415th out of almost 10,000 runners at the Great Newham 10k Run in London, in a decent time of 43:09 and Maggi Savin- Baden managed a PB in her Olympic Triathlon event at Milton Keynes, time 3 hours 47 minutes. And finally, Mark Williams, who joined BADGERS with a view to improving his running in order to meet the qualification standard for the RAF, successfully passed this part of his application with flying colours – well done Mark!
