Another Sawtry Walk To Run PB

On a weekend when we had runners out and about all over the place. Kat was another of our fold who secured a PB. Kat had the choice of another run at Stanwick Lakes which is pretty flat or to take on the hilly Cransley […]

Ken & Janine (and Mo) at the Great North Run

This is probably the best known of all the Half Marathons and we were pleased to have Ken & Janine there representing Sawtry Walk To Run. Both did really well and Janine even managed to meet Mo before the race – what a treat!   […]

Bedford Half Marathon

Bedford Half Marathon

After some great results in the 10k, a number of our Sawtry Runners took part in the Half Marathon.

It was a much warmer day than anticipated but we still achieved some great results.

First home was Ryan with a PB of 1.33.26. Also securing a PB was Andrea who finished in 2.33.10.

Our other runners were Travis (1.49.06), Daniel (2.01.00), Jace (2.22.30)  Michelle (2.22.43) and Amelia (2.27.56).

A fab set of results.

And here is our Trusty Treasurer Ken taking up his position ready to marshal at the Bedford 10k this evening. We have no doubt he will be looking out for our Sawtry Walk To Runners and giving them an extra cheer. And, armed with some […]

parkrun 1 September

parkrun 1 September

The first day of a new month saw a bevy of Sawtry Walk To Runners out at parkrun today.

10 were volunteering (Andrea, Carol, Jace, Jo, Ken, Lizzie, Nib, Nona, Ryan &Travis), many of those resting for the weekend of running at the Bedford 10K and Half Marathon. 4 were running (2 doing both).

Jenny is just returning to running and ran an impressive 38.21 shaving off over a minute from her time last week. Well done Jenny! Running with her was Nona who crossed the line at exactly the same time. Sally was ahead of them in 35.59 after running with 6 year old son James who sprinted off from her at the end to cross the line in 35.03. His target is for sub 30 which given his PB when running with Dad is 31.21, he may well get there before he moves out of age 10 and under category – a real star of the future there!

Up at the other end of the field in 57th place was our Lead Coach Nib who finished in 22.24 getting ever closer to his PB from 2016 of 21.20.

Well done everyone, especially the hi-vis heros!
