Newent Runners had a busy week with several members competing in events and hosting the inaugural ‘Newent 9’ road race on Sunday.
The weather was kind, much to the relief of the marshals, and six members were able to take part. Henry Willis won the M19 category with a 42.20 time, followed by Andrew Callard, second in his MV50 category, in 42.49. Adrian Fishpool (44.30), Adele Mitchell (54.47), Jane Mulford (58.05) and Lisa Mansfield (1.03.28) also put in good times.
Eleven members braved the elements on Thursday night at the Rogue Run Moseley Green Night Race. James Griffiths was first member home in 47.47 followed by Megan James in 55.31. Other results: Andy Chambers (56.19), Sarah Carter (58.03), Micaela Swan (1.10.39), Lynn Latham and Helen Kelly (1.10.40), Kerry Cawkwell (1.10.41), Emily Trenwith (1.14.03), Claire Price (1.14.14) and Susan Baggett (1.14.24).
On Saturday, two members travelled to Long Marston airfield. David Jones completed the Shakespeare Raceway Half Marathon in an impressive 1.39.19, winning the MV60 category, and Carey Russell finished the 10K event in 1.09.25.
