At Elephant Park on Wednesday night we had 22 members brave the rain and complete 1, 2 or 3 laps. Depending what time you were there some members got saturated but all who ran practised their steeplechase skills with many large puddles covering the track.
Top 3 for the males this week were: Peter Finlay 10:35, Alistair Merrifield 12:36 and Anthony Daintith 12:49. Top 3 for the Female runners we had Karen Mudge 14:48, Kinisha Roweth 15:11 and Kim Jarvis 15:40. One lucky PB was made on this wet Wednesday, Nikki Grant knocking off 3 seconds, getting down to 16:33.
