Warren Chicked by Gemma Steel

Carl Rutt Memorial 10k 2015 - BADGERS
A week after the club turned four, the fastest Badger on two legs this season, Danny Warren, turned 29 and celebrated in style at the Carl Rutt Memorial 10K league race in Whitwick, graced this year by none other than Great Britain long distance star Gemma Steel. The BADGERS man once again finished first Badger back in 37:59, 21st place and a fine effort on a notoriously hilly course, a mere 19 places behind the impressive Steel. David Jackson ran another great race in 28th place (38:23), while Aaron Chetwynd put in a quality shift recording 41:32, Adi Payne battled hard in 43:45, stalwart Adie Kirkham ran 44:26 and former DJ turned endurance runner Carl Holyoak 44:39 made sure that several BADGERS returned in under 45 minutes. Newcomer Rachael Crump continued her excellent form finishing first lady back in 45:17, a personal best. Dave Earp took a break from his hectic Cani-cross schedule to run 49:31, veteran Alan Argyle ran a fantastic 51:57, skipper Dewi Powell 52:17, veteran Rich Hill not far behind in 52:51 with Steph White and Karen Thompson crossing the line together in 53:54. Paul Grubb 55:46 and Jason Husselbee-Orwin 58:25 both did themselves as well as the club proud. With one race left before the end of the season, the men’s team are strong contenders for promotion into Division Two, so a strong turnout will be vital at the John Fraser 10 mile race in Countesthorpe on September 6th to secure this goal.

At parkrun, three BADGERS turned out at Conkers, Paul Grubb and Will Cartwright both running course bests while Jason Husselbee-Orwin notched yet another appearance as he closes in on John Hanson’s record for the most appearances in the event. After Danny Warren’s success last week at Kingsbury, BADGERS were looking for back to back first places on their home course but with Chris Horton a late injury withdrawal, all hopes were on Dave Jackson. Despite his very best efforts to bring home the bacon, the Baddesley man had to settle for some short-dated haslet as he managed a gutsy third place in 18:17. Fuelled by the prospect of an unopened waiting multipack of creamy dill lentil flavoured crisps, Adi Payne finished just behind him in 11th place and a time of 20:02. Other runners included David Craig, Neil Gourlay, Ashley Taylor, Alan Argyle, Eamon Thawley, Richard Hill (in his 117th run), Liz Peel along with the improving John and Mandy Hanson. Meanwhile at Brueton Park, Solihull, Ian Mansell returned after injury to finish fourth in a low-profile comeback of sorts.
