BADGERS SWARM FOR THE FINAL SUMMER LEAGUE RACE

Leicester 5k - BADGERS
Last week saw many BADGERS running in different races, mainly the Leicester Summer Series 5K.  There were several BADGERS in action at the final race of the Leicester Summer Series 5K. Danny Warren WON by just two seconds in 17:34 but sadly was pipped by one point for the overall series win.  Chris Baxter was a gallant third in 17:48 and Chris Horton was fourth in 18:00 picking up the V40 prize for the third time in as many races. As a result the BADGERS team won the team prize (mens). Our ladies team of Karen Thompson, Monika Lampart and Stephanie White picked up retrospective honours for winning the ladies team prize last time out, denied only by a miscalculation of the results at the time. Chris Horton was third overall in the series and Aaron Chetwynd came fourth. Monika Lampart came fifth in the ladies section.  Other runners included: Rachael Bunting (24:48), Ashley Taylor (23:10), Stuart Stafford (20:51) and Yvonne Faulkner 26:40.

Whilst most of the BADGERS were running last week, one of our long serving members Adie Kirkham took time off running multiple marathons to get married to his Fiancé Linda, Congratulations both!
