20/06/2018  Peterborough 5K Grand Prix, Eye  details
Alan Burgin reports: It was warm and windy at Eye for the second of the five races in the Peterborough 5k series. In previous years, there has been a good turnout by Hunts AC athletes for the first race, then a decreasing number for races 2, 3 and 4 and finally a show of interest for the last race. It looks as if this season may be different. Sixteen of us ran in race 1 and it was 16 again for race 2, so perhaps this will mean a big turnout for all 5 races, including the one at Stamford (race 4). Don't be put off by the travel distance or the fact that this is a "not quite so flat course"; after all, there is only one hill (you go up it twice and down it twice, and I think there is about 200m of flat in the whole 5k, so what is there not to like!). 14th Rod McKee 17:47 26th Ian Gallagher 18:21 36th Carl Rooney 18:39 97th Ieva Klavina 20:36 110th Bruce Grimley 20:58 113th Jeff Mercer 21:03 121st Dave Spurle 21:31 132nd Jim Stocker 21:39 136th Caroline King 21:52 151st Alan Burgin 22:17 165th Amy Steele 22:44 196th Adrian Smith 23:54 222nd Pauline Stocker 25:00 224th Georgia Hill 25:02 249th Chloe Wilson 25:57 265th Jess Mann 26:33 There were 373 finishers. Next race, Ferry Meadows Wednesday 4th July.

17/06/2018  Bedford 10k  details
Ty Farrer reports: In near perfect conditions, five runners from Hunts AC made the early start time of 9 am for the Run Bedford 10K, on a route around and through the city itself on closed roads. The wind picked up a little, just before the start and the rain stopped - so we were good to go and with very little fanfare or warning, we were off. Hunts AC's second-claim runner David Hudson went off with the first group whilst myself and Mark Barry formed the second group with a C&C runner and a St Alban’s Strider. Bedford is a fairly flat course with a gradual incline, most noticeably between 5k and 7k, where there is a 180 degree turn around, where we could witness the rest of the runners coming battling behind. The last two kilometres were fairly fast, being on a slight downhill drag and with a tailwind to push us along - although it felt longer than it was. Mark Barry at this point picked up the pace and chased down the 4th place runner - who managed to hold him off for the finish, but it was a great battle from where I witnessed it - a few seconds back and unable to close the gap. Final placings - 2nd claim David Hudson achieved a new PB of 32:20, finishing 3rd overall and claiming £100 prize money (and a shiny trophy). Mark Barry officially led the team home in 6th, also with a new PB in 34:19, Ty Farrer 7th and 34:20 (new PB as well by 27 seconds), Rod McKee in 26th 37:03 - 39 seconds quicker than last year, Sean Barker in 37th 37:52 - 40 seconds quicker than last year and Caroline King in 125th 43:56th 2nd V35 Female (10th female overall) a new PB by 67 seconds! 811 finishers! The icing on the cake - Hunts AC picked up the overall male team prize for Mark, Ty, Rod and Sean - proving that those Tuesday nights on the track are paying off!

16/06/2018  24-hour Suffolk Trail Running Festival  details
A 5-runner Hunts AC team won the 24-hour Suffolk Trail Running Festival, covering 165 miles. The course covered an area between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury with the aim of completing as many laps of the 5-mile course as possible in 24 hour time limit. Kelly Crawford, Caroline Archer, Andy Richardson, Steve Church and Shane Hunt took on this test of endurance, speed, fitness, mental toughness and teamwork and came out with flying colours as they took the title in the 3/4/5-runner event. Most ran 35 miles over the two-day period with Kelly going above and beyond the call of duty by covering 40 miles. The mixed team even beat the best all-male, 5-runner team.
