In the afternoon several members ran a multi terrain event organised by Black Country Triathletes held on the Apley Park Estate which consisted of three individual races, a 5k, 10k,and a half marathon 21k (photo above). In the 5k Amanda Prescott came 29th out of 47 runners with a chip time of 36.15. The 10k in which eleven members entered and actually turned out to be 11k (8.60 miles), William Laye achieved 2nd place out of 102 runners and in only just behind the sprinting winner in a time of 44.58 minutes, Andrew Davies at 13th in 53.09, Nickie Smith 30th 59.36 , Sarah Grainger 42nd 64.39, Dave Prescott 45th 65.09,Jenny Norton 52nd 67.53, Jean James 61st 69.17, Rachael Holland 78th in 74.40, Sam Parton 81st 67.22, Lucy Watkins 84th 67.50 and Deborah Leith in 100th place with a time of 85.55.
Many of the members came away happy with a trophy for winning age category positions and a good afternoon was had by all despite the races being of a higher standard than expected before the start.
The next day, Sunday 28 September, saw four members who could not get enough the previous day take on the 10k multi terrain Brown Clee Burn from Stoke St. Milborough Village Hall. William Laye in 48 minutes was 4th while Scott Mathers easily beat Andrew Davies who came in a few seconds over the hour and Dave Prescott not far behind. At the time of writing the full results have still to be published. The field was approximately 50 runners. This event was held in glorious sunshine, going out along the lane before turning off up The Shropshire Way to the top of Clee Burf and down the track to Nordy Bank with far reaching stunning views over the county towards Long Mynd before back along another lane through Stoke Gorse and back to the village hall where a bacon and egg bap awaited all finishers together with cups of tea. A very well organised race with plenty of marshals and water enroute. For the efforts all finishers also received a Brown Clee Burn certificate!
