Essex Walker – August 2011. Includes reports on the LICC 3000m and SRWA 20k which some of us raced at, and a potted biography of Ron who runs the Enfield League.
The organiser says there have been very few entries with a week to go to the closing date, and the race may be cancelled. So if you are planning to go, please enter soon and email the orgainser Noel Carmody [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Details : SRWA 1 Hour Entry.
Training at Tilsley Park on Monday 25 July : track : drills and 200m intervals.
Training from Tilsley Park on Wednesday 27th : 800m intervals.
Racing at the weekend : a 5 mile ‘Ilford Open’ is advertised at the Redbridge Cycle Circuit, where some of us have raced before, on Sunday 31st. It is advertised in the Essex Walker as starting at 2:30 but I know no more about it than this.
Entry forms for this event, which we have gone to in previous years, are now available here.
The full results are here. PBs for both Oxfordshire racers !
Training from Tilsley Park on Monday 18 July : 10k-ish Radley Lakes loop, shorter options avaiable too
Training from Tilsley Park on Wednesday 20 July : laps of the 2.33k circuit.
Racing at the weekend : Saturday 23rd : Half marathon in the Enfield League series, at Hillingdon, at 1 pm. Shorter distances will be timed too.
Training at the weekend : with a few people now looking to do 20k races, longer distance training from 12k upwards will become a regular weekend feature. Given commitments, this will be either on Saturday or Sunday mornings, whichever suits most people. Any preferences for this weekend, if you’re not going to Hillingdon ?
