TORCHLIGHT 5K RESULTS


Final Torchlit 5k sees another bumper turnout





The torchlit series is fast becoming a “not to be missed” event in the winter months.  A great social gathering with a chance to gauge your current level against friendly rivals.


Again greeted with clear, dry and mild conditions, Rob Mcgrath added to his tally of victories in a time of 18:17 with an in-form Tracey Peters leading the women home in 20:53.
There was yet another healthy turnout of marshall’s to ensure safe passage and despite generator failure (still under warranty!!) all participants were accounted for at the finish line with Jon Singleton and Sarah Mcgrath crossing the line in a photo finish.
Spare a thought for the two non entrants, out for what they thought was a pioneering run across wasteland utilising their head torches, only to be met by 51 similarly clad participants heading in the opposite direction!
Thanks as always to ever present Nic and Neil without whom things would be far more chaotic than they are!
On a final note, it was perhaps appropriate Simon Tobin should take a spot prize.  That large box of sweets may be the only thing that can slow him down……I live in hope!
The bigger and better Torchlit series will return in November 2014, but in the meantime Rick will shortly announce his summer series (no head torches required!)

Thanks for your attendance

Andrew

Torchlight 5K Dec 2013 Results and Photos

Santa's Dash at Torchlit 5k
Sixty runners, a healthy array of much appreciated helpers, a clear night and a shed load of Santa hats guaranteed a most enjoyable gathering for the Xmas edition of the Torchlit Tip 5k.

With the odd black stray dog adding to the obvious hazards of darkness, Ben Johnson was prepared for all eventualities to finish in a most impressive 17:38 with Clare Constable the first lady home in 19:54 which we believe is a personal best.

There were many unfamiliar faces, newcomers to the event as well as the dedicated stalwarts all enjoying a great social evening with mementos to take away.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part or helped out in any way and look forward to the January edition which has been provisionally earmarked for Wednesday 22nd January 2014

Results below, photos to follow.
