Heathside Feel the Need for Speed 

Apologies to those who did speedy runs at the end of July and beginning of August, we finally got round to highlighting your times here!

Starting off with a look at the shorter distances, Danny O’Reilly ran a fantastic 16:25 in the penultimate Battersea Park summer 5k series on Monday 29th, while the end of the week saw the SOAR Mile event at the community track by the Olympic Park. 5 Heathsiders were in attendance, with PBs for Esti Guijarro Puente (5:45.92) and Tom Bedwell, who ducked under 5 minutes with a superb run (4:53.03).

The following day there was more action over at Battersea Park as Christopher Burke and Catrin Tyler came 19th and 21st in the latest Sri Chinmoy 10k event, where Catrin’s time of 37:37 ensured she took home the prize for 2nd woman.

Further East at Victoria Park, five Heathsiders took part in the RunThrough Half Marathon event. Marcus Tillotson was first home as he finished in 27th place (86:37), closely followed by Stephen Barron (87:04) and Fabian Thehos (89:17). Natalie Shoham also knocked a couple of minutes off her PB, finishing in 1:50:44.

Even further East, Richard Peachment was the sole LH rep at this year’s final Orion Forest 5 race but came away with a PB (35:31) while the following day Peter Gould finished in 6th place at the latest Regent’s Park Summer 10k.
