We had three competitors in this year’s marathon and all did brilliantly.

Bev Tyler found it hard-going in the latter stages but showed great strength and courage to beat the 5 hour barrier, coming home in 4.57.46.

Her sometime training partner, Sheryl Evans, in her fiftieth year, knocked a huge 9 minute chunk off her pb for a really wonderful 3.38.41. If anyone’s interested in getting faster as you get older, Sheryl’s the one to talk to. I must have a word.

Further up the road Tom Grady also posted a magnificent pb of 2.41.04, so close to the magic 2.40 barrier. Tom had a battle along the way with Sheryl’s daughter, Clara, well known on the Hereford circuit but now in outstanding form for Cardiff. London was her marathon debut and she finished in a hugely impressive 2.46.03. Bearing in mind that two of the women in front of her who won GB World Champs selection are in their 30’s, Clara definitely has time on her side to reach that sort of level.

We’re back to time. Where did it all go? But that’s another story.

Message from our Chairman

Posted: March 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

AS REPORTED IN SATURDAY’S ‘GUARDIAN’

P1010989

The Chairman is adopting a draconian, no-nonsense approach to this year’s Summer League.

But hang on a moment, wasn’t he the one continually producing sick notes throughout the winter season?

Looks like it could be an expensive summer for the old boy.

The results of yesterday’s race were as follows  hatterrall-hammer-2017-results

Thanks to everyone for supporting the race and bringing decent weather.

Thanks to all Hereford Couriers, friends and family, for help with organisation, marshalling, first aid and sweep running – in no particular order, Mark, Russ, Kev, Sheryl, Rich, Hazel, Dave & family, Carol, Sky and Paola. Clive and Tracy not only set out the course, but recruited marshals and recorded and processed results. As ever, the hardy Kay and Martin Lucas, braved the weather on the top and tried to warm up by kindly dismantling and bringing home race signage etc. Mike Blenkinsop was on the line recording finishers and was invaluable in working out the results in quick order. Jonathan Phillips kindly let us run across his land and set competitors on their way. Vasile, Maria and staff at the Old Pandy Inn laid on a fantastic post race feast and made us all thoroughly welcome.

ST MARGARETS CIDER CO

Thanks also once again to Alan McCardle (member of Hay Hotfooters) for supplying cider as prizes for the Hammer. This year it was a fine medium, though strong, Bob Cole Cider. You can contact Alan to order more on 01981 510510.

Huge thanks once more to all the above for combining so harmoniously to make the race happen in style. See you next year, I hope.

Steve Herington
