Events round-up

Double shift

Last edited: Wed 6 Feb 2019

Pete Shirvington and Martin Lewis put in a real shift this weekend, running in a Saturday's after dark event in Bristol before our Galoppen on Sunday.

Plus: reports from other recent events in the region

Leigh Woods, February 9

Bristol OK's night event at Leigh Woods was adjacent to the spectacular Avon gorge. Making it extra tricky were MTB tracks criss-crossing the main paths. Pete and Martin also had to contend with the steep valleys which spill in to the Avon gorge.


Chris Cudmore had it a bit easier- he got to see it all in daylight, a few hours earlier on the Green course in BOK's local league event.


Godshill, February 3

Several members ran in the snow in the New Forest on Sunday (3rd).

Stockhill, January 27

The week before, the usual suspects plus some more ran at Bristol OK's regional event on the Mendips. Stockhill is a testing area which benefitted from a nice piece of remapping for last year's British Middle Distance champs. Pete Shirvington and Steve Robertson each beat a few high-ranked runners from BOK, on the Blue course.

Another notable result was Robert Green's 21st place finish out of 77 on Green, on a happy hunting ground for Robert (technical terrain).

Oliver and Annabel Lewis took on some tough competition on the Yellow course but again both finished in the top half of the leaderboard.
