Northants Virtual Road Race League - Race 1

The results for week 1 of the Northants Virtual 5k Series are in. A strong weekend of lockdown racing was displayed by our KTH athletes who clearly have been putting in some solo graft during lockdown and proving that you don’t need a traditional race environment to deliver results.

First Harrier home, and 10th in the open male race, was Luke Myers, with a personal best time (ran in the blazing midday heat of Saturday) of 17:04. Well done Luke! Second in the MV40’s category was Phil Brigden with an impressive 17:31. Will Howells was hot on Phil’s virtual heals with an equally impressive 17:41. Stephen Thompson took the MV50’s top spot with a run of 18:05. Rafal Buzuk ran a solid 19:40 to claim 9th MV40. 5th MV50 with 20:00 was Steve Chester. Ian Corns ran a time of 20:29, taking 13th place in the MV40’s. Pete Gorringe placed 6th MV50 with 21:09 closely followed by Bill Robinson in 21:12 who took 7th MV50. Another MV40 was harrier Matthew Watson with a time of 21:44, taking 23rd place in the category. Again in the MV40’s was Matthew Pollard, who ran a time of 21:53 and placed 25th in the category. Mark Brockway ran a 24:17 placing 18th MV50. Anthony Poncia took 37th MV40 with 25:07. Proving age is just a number was 8th MV60 Terry Coleman with a 28:42 run.
 
The ladies team really shone this week and although it’s a bit early in the league to start counting chickens, are currently 1st in the overall team rankings. Our first lady on the board this week was Natasha Martin who ran a sound 20:04; placing 2nd FV35. A stonking PB performance from Millie Caffull, who took 9th spot in the women’s open race with 21:34. 5th FV35 was Lydia Wilkie who ran 22:17. Kerry Munn took second place in what looks to be a strong FV55 category with 22:56. Nicola Robinson was 4th FV45 with 23:36 with Nicola Speed two spots behind, 6th FV45 with a run of 24:32. Stacey Barrett ran 25:14 and was 31st in the overall women’s table. 11th FV45 was Paula Sinnot with a time of 27:33. Youngster Julia Buzuk ran a 27:36 placing 52nd in the female rankings. FV45 had further KTH offerings from Alison Moxey (13th) and Amanda Marlow (19th); with times of 28:31 and 30:37 respectively.
 
A fantastic set of individual and team performances which leaves us wondering; what does the powerhouse that is the Myers-Caffull household have for breakfast?
 
Round 2 kicks of this Friday; we cant wait to see how everyone fares this week. Keep smiling, stay safe and remember; there are county medals up for grabs!
