Karen & Matt - Spring Cakeathon Challenge - BADGERS
BADGERS were back in running action over the Bank Holiday weekend with no fewer than 17 members turning out at various local parkruns. Over at Conkers, David Jackson continued his excellent form finishing in third place equalling his PB yet again in the process! Chris Upton clocked an impressive 21:29 while Jason Husselbee-Orwin managed a run prior to his triathlon debut the following day. At Kingsbury Water Park, David Craig defied medical science by lopping chunks off his PB following a week of selflessly patronising a plethora of posh eateries in the south of England, becoming the first Badger home in a time of 20:29 ahead of Dave Earp in 21:25. Mark Robinson managed a rare appearance along with Stephanie White (22:52 - PB) who took a break from volunteering to join the exclusive 70%+ wava rating club, Eamon Thawley achieved a third consecutive PB  in 23:30, while the popular Serena Baker, Ashley Taylor, Alan Argyle, Janet Crumpton, Judy Parkes, Paul Grubb, Karen Missen, Vicki Howard (PB) and Mark Griffin also ran.

At the Beeston Trent 5 in Nottingham, there were PB’s all round. Serena Baker ran a personal best of 39:05, with John Savin-Baden 41:14 finishing just ahead of wife Maggi who completed the pleasant and particularly flat course in 43:23. All PB’s!

Jason Husselbee-Orwin successfully completed his first triathlon on Sunday, while on Monday, popular Chairperson Karen Thompson made the long journey all the way down to Deal in Kent to take part in the Spring Cakeathon Challenge which combined the ultimate strange bedfellows of distance running and cake eating. Running alongside Matt Tonks, they completed an impressive 6 laps (20 miles) of running – details of the amount of cake consumed were unavailable at the time of writing!
