For those interested in joining Richard Paddock & Liz Hird on their off road hill sessions (Long Mynd etc), the initial dates are below. They are all on a Monday and there will generally be two a month (dependent on other events). As previously mentioned, you'll need to train at improver upwards, have a pair of off road shoes and the will to give it a go! The location for each session will be revealed on the weekend prior to the meet date.
Lilleshall 5 Mile
Wednesday 8th saw the start of the Sexarathon series with the Lilleshall 5 Mile race, and it was great to see a good turnout from the Shufflers, seventeen in total!
On a lovely sunny spring evening the records tumbled! Paul Bowes continued his recent excellent form with another V45 record. He beat the previous 5 mile record by nearly a minute with a fantastic time of 29:50.
The previous ladies V55 was also beaten twice. Liz Hird finished in 39:56 but was pipped to the finish by Gail Clayton who now holds the record with a great time of 39:45.
Well done to all.
Berlin Half Marathon
Well done to Paul and Susan Bowes who both took part in the Berlin Half Marathon on Sunday 29th March.
Particular congratulations must go to Paul who has beaten the long standing Shufflers MV45 record with a fanastic time of 1:22:48. The previous record had stood since 1992 which shows how well Paul had to run to beat it!
Hill Training Sessions 2015
With the evenings now drawing out nicely myself & Liz are looking to start the hill sessions off again in the near future for those interested.
