Meet The Member – Colin Carpenter completes 100 parkruns

Q) For members who don’t know you, tell us a bit about yourself?

A) My name is Colin Carpenter and I am a Carpenter by trade as well as name. I am extremely happy when tinkering with wood and partaking in projects around the house. However, my main love and how I relax is by running.

Q) How and when did you get into running?

A) I started running at the rip age of 42. I took my daughter Teresa to an athletics club. It was too far to drive back home again so I started running around the adjoining Football pitches while I waited for her to do her training. I soon got fitter and faster and caught the bug quickly. My first race was The Rochester 5 miles. I soon moved onto 10km, 10miles, Half Marathons and then Marathons. I have completed The London Marathon nine times and my PB is 3hrs 46mins 20secs in 1997. I have also competed on the track in the veterans from 100m to 5000km to the 2km walk. My club back then was Medway and then Medway and Maidstone in 2000.

 

Q) What do you enjoy most about being a member of Sandhurst Joggers?

A) In 2016 I moved from Chatham in Kent to Sandhurst due to the passing of the love of my life and beautiful wife Elizabeth. After looking at running clubs online I decided to join Sandhurst Joggers in April 2017. My first time out with SJ was on a Thursday night…… It was not a good start. I fell over the curb at the start. I was looked after by James Casey, he took me on the shorter route and made me feel at ease. The group said it might be better for me to do a Monday or Tuesday night. So not giving up I joined the Monday group led by Patrick. This was good. Looping and bringing everyone together and giving encouragement when needed. I then tried the Tuesday night. Lots of different groups to choose from. I started in the medium group and enjoyed how it was similar to the Monday group. In August last year I had an operation on my eye and had to have a break from running for a while. I then had issues with my sciatic nerve so I had to start again gradually building myself up. Because the Tuesday group is so versatile I went and joined in with the run/ walk group building myself up to the running groups.

 

Q) On which of the weekly runs are we most likely to bump into you?

A) Tuesday is the main night I run with Sandhurst Joggers and the main thing I love about this club is the people. From the fastest to the slowest you always feel welcome and
encouraged and there is always someone to discuss your latest running achievements with. I like how we are able to be a part of the team by volunteering for events such as the Yateley 10k Series. There are also some really good events put on by the SJs; the intra club relays at the Memorial Park, Anniversary Round Bracknell Relay, Friday night Track events, Pacers at Bracknell Park run and marshalling at The London Marathon to name
but a few. Every thing is always so well organised and has enhanced my running enjoyment.

 

Q) I see you’ve mainly run at Bracknell, of the other venues you’ve run at which is your favourite and why?

A) Due to now being retired I have run Bracknell parkrun the most times and was pleased to complete my 100th at a course I call home. But, my favourite parkrun is my first parkrun course in Kent. The Great Lines in Gillingham. Its a fast course of just 2 laps and has a nice long stretch for over taking and the finish is on a nice slope down hill.

 

Q) What other events are on your programme for 2018?

A) I have no major events coming up for 2018 but I’m excited for the X-country season this year.

18th/19th August – SJ Weekend Run Down

The week started at pace with Eddie Wilson completing the Ramsey 10k on the Isle of Man in 54:12.

Jumping onto the weekend; A bumper Saturday of Parkrun action. With Rushmoor cancelled this week Frimley Lodge was bursting at the seams with 667 runners celebrating on the retro course with the original finish! Of the 14 SJs Mark Pattrick was first to finish as he returned from injury to post his fastest time of 2018. He also ran the course at a similar pace earlier in the week in his first pain free run since injury. Jon Payne, KJ Kajla and Jim Casey also recorded seasons bests while Mo Wilcox, Bev Mathews and Kirsty Darcy sampled Frimley for the first time. Congratulations to John King who completed his 150th parkrun!

PR FL SJ results Aug 18th

Plenty of PBs over at Parkrun Bracknell where the SJ turnout matched Frimley with 14! Jill Pemberton lowered her PB by over 3 minutes to 38:50 while Liz Ujszaszi knocked nearly 2 minutes off her Bracknell best. Paul Biggs also improved for the second consecutive run at the Great Hollands course as Alistair Ingall-Tombs ran his first ever parkrun.

PR Brack SJ results Aug 18th

with Rushmoor not running this week we’ve elevated Dinton Pastures to a SJ regular as yet again it attracted a decent contingent of members. Carla Wright knocked nearly 3 minutes off her overall parkrun PB and Faye Joyner lowered her Dinton PB. Sue Hopkinson and Alurie Dutton sampled the course for the first time as Kate Parker volunteered as Tail Walker.

PR Dinton SJ results Aug 18th

It’s holiday season so no surprise to see lots of Parkrun Tourism this week. Of those running their home venues; John Tovell ran at Crane Park, Yvette Glacken at Luton Wardown, Lisa Hale and Stuart Overhill ran at their second parkrun home Bushy Park where Lisa was just 1 second outside her fastest. Jon Green returned to his favourite Woodley where he recorded an outright PB.

Top 10 finishes for Robert Jerrett who took 7th place at the inaugural Higginson Park parkrun in Marlow and Neil Praine with 6th position at Homewood in a cracking 19:33. Down at Bournemouth Graham Robinson was narrowly edged into 2nd place on the same time as the first finisher. A pair of 4th places for Mark Fallowfield-Smith and Nikki Stanley at Upton Court as their recent Hen/Stag parkruns have rekindled the love of parkrun.

A trio of SJs made the trip to Wales with Philip Boylan and Kim Reeves running at Llanelli Coast and Stephen Casey bagging an impressive outright PB of 20:44 at Aberystwyth (he’s getting closer but still not quite a sub 4 minute mile).

Further afield Will Lucas ran at Seaton, Jane Pond at Kesgrave near Ipswitch, Simon and Anne Whillis at Leicester Victoria Park. Tina Acock wins the award for the furthest trip as she touristed at Constantia Greenbelt near Cape Town in South Africa.

Later on Saturday the superb beginners triathlon ‘Try A Tri’ was held in Yateley with a 200m swim in the pool at Yateley School, a bike lap of the Yateley 10k course and finally a 2.5km run. We’ll have a full report and results later in the week. In the meantime here’s some pictures:-

Caroline Cutliffe tackled the Mamore Gap half marathon in County Donegal on a challenging course with mountains and rain to contend with.

 

The SJ Mud Running Crew overcame the latest Brutal 10k at one of the less severe courses at Pyestock. Regulars Gareth Hopkins, Nigel Evans, Karen Page, Angela Foker, Mark Foker and Jacq Hudson were joined by newbie Blanche Barnes.

Burnham Beeches SJ Member Highlights

Helen Vizard finished the 10k in 54:58

“After a long walk to what I thought would be a start line the horn sounded. I continued to walk as the crowd of people in front of me left me no choice. Eventually I realised there was no starting timing mat, so started to work my way though the field of runners. I was in no rush today. Still feeling tired from jet lag from my holiday today was just a training run. I slowly picked up the pace and enjoyed a few hills along the way. The last mile was a lovely hill to finish on. But when I got to top I decided to pick up the pace to run round the field and head for the finish line with maximum effort. A lovely Sunday run in beautiful countryside.”

TAT helen finish

 

Jackie Kent finished the half marathon in 1:54:25

“My overriding thought about Burnham Beeches is, it was hilly!!! I’ve done this course before but don’t remember it being so hilly! It’s a lovely course though, through the woods and country lanes. I’d recommend it, especially if you like hills!”

SJ Burnham team

 

Angela Foker finished the 10k in 1:04:30 (although we suspect the event timings are off!)

“I enjoyed the Burnham Beeches 10k, it is in a lovely setting and a nice route through lovely countryside, slightly undulating! The organisation and marshals were excellent. Nice medal and my name on the finishers Tshirt. The only negative for me was that although the 10k runners had chips on for timing we started away from the main field where the half marathon started so the timings were gun rather than chip timings plus my husband and I ran the whole race together, crossed the line together and his time was recorded as 1 minute faster!!

Angela BB10k

 

Mark Foker finished the 10k in 1:03:33

“It was a well turned out event and very well organised. Me and Angela ran the 10K and thoroughly enjoyed the experience…although, for anyone thinking of doing the Burnham Beeches 10k or half marathon, just bear in mind that you need to be half mountain goat!! To say it was a tad hilly is an understatement. Great day though as ever the running community were giving other runners huge encouragement.”

Mark BB 10k

 

Nigel Evans – finished the half marathon in 2:00:00

“This was a new event for me and I was running it with my Step Son Olly and Dave Bartlett. I had heard good reports but due to preparing for Ride London 100 I had really only been on the bike since the Endure with very little running. I was slightly apprehensive because I had heard it was a hilly course. Dave kindly drove using his VIP parking which meant we had a very short walk to the start which was in the field at Caldicott School. The race area seemed very well organised with some stalls and a BBQ if you fancied a burger for breakfast. The Half Marathon started at 9.15 with the 10k starting after. We met up with Jackie Kent in the car park and at 9 we all headed to the start. 

At 9.15 we were off being cheered out of the school by all the 10km runners which was great. The course is described as a “Scenic 2 lap course full of lovely undulating hills” If I was in a car I would agree not so much on two feet. Dave and Jackie looked strong so at around 5k I dropped back and settled into a steady pace with Olly who was running his first half Marathon for over a year and was feeling the pace and hills. I really liked the course which was on closed roads with a nice section of Burnham Beeches woodland paths , plenty of friendly marshals ,and 2 water stops which used the small soft pouch water bottles which I prefer. The course does have some challenging hills especially towards the end heading back up to the school but the first lap shows you what to expect so you can pace accordingly ready for the tougher feeling second lap.

Olly was happy with me dragging him round in sub 2 hrs with a time of  1:59:59 but he must have crossed the line a fraction before me because I failed to get sub 2 with an 02:00:00 which really made us laugh and he hasn’t stopped mentioning it since although I did point out that my knees hurt because I was running so slow and he is 18 and I’m 53. All in all I really enjoyed the course (learn to love hills) and the atmosphere and would definitely do it again.”

Leon Hicks on finding his lost running mojo

Hi all!

Well since my 100th celebrations I’ve found it hard to motivate myself and have lost my mojo. I have started about six marathons but only managed to get halfway before calling it a day, and every time I beat myself up after. I did manage to complete the marathon for the world record medal in June and managed to find the belief to finish at the Saturn Running ‘Masters of the Runiverse’ marathon in Reading this weekend. So hopefully now finding my feet again.

Leon Masters of the Runiverse marathon.jpg

I have been busy though giving back to the running community by marshaling and will be heading up to Scotland this week to marshal the GB Ultra race, a 214 mile race in 100 hours. My aim is to do this race next year so the training starts now. Hills hills hills I think. I’m looking forward to running one of the marathon days in support of Claire with her quest at the end of the month. Never give up, set new challenges and make new friends.

Masters of the Runiverse – Mark Neve tells of his latest marathon

This was my third lapped event with Saturn running. The layout is the same as most of the Phoenix event runs – 3.28 Mile laps, 8 for marathon distance and you get an awesome medal. I really like this course in Early, as there’s no big bridges!

It’s been pretty nice to bump into many of the same runners at different events, events which are nice and small, so even someone like me, who’s terrible with names and faces can get to know some people. Laps mean you cross paths with other marathon runners maybe 15 times and people sometimes slow down for a chat. Here are some of the interesting people I’ve met:

Will and Sandy who run Jogging Made Easy came prepared for the run dressed as He-Man and She-Ra and even on a cooler day must have been stifling hot.

he man.png

Leon The Runner! I know Leon is one of our own but I’d never met Leon until recently and he finished his 100th marathon the day before I ran my first, so he’s a huge inspiration to me and always has a smile on his face and seems to know everyone and their dog but then he has spent a lot of time running with them.

Leslie (who ran the 26.2 with Leon) was taking it easy as she’d ran a 50k the day before. Taking it easy ended up with her completing another 50k.

Our very own Martin Gould was running and kept me company for 5 hours as we chatted about all sorts of things until he decided to show me a clean pair of heels around mile 23 finishing about 8 minutes before me.

Mark and Martin.png

George McDonough is the man behind Saturn Running, he finished his 52 marathons in 52 weeks last weekend and snuck in a 50k on Sunday too.

Steve who had just completed his 12 marathons in 12 months challenge the week before, who I barraged with questions as 12 in 12 is my next goal. 

People tell me they hate the idea of running laps, but I don’t think you’d get to meet such a mix of runners in a big marathon, these events just seem much more personal.

Masters of the Runiverse marathon.png

My next marathon (8/12) is at East Farm on 25th August , my first with White Star Running who I’ve heard lots of good things about. I hope there’ll be some more Sandhurst Joggers there to chat to.

Meet the Member – Dave Breslin completes 150 Parkruns

Q) For members who don’t know you, tell us a bit about yourself?

A) I live in Sandhurst, about 5 minutes’ walk from the Sandhurst Sports centre, which is handy. I am on the SJ committee, helping Graham with Summer Events.

 

Dave Breslin Grizzy 2017

Q) How and when did you get into running?

A) In 2006, a colleague at work organised a group of us to run the Bupa Capital 10k. I did nothing for a year after that, then a smaller group of us ran the Elmbridge 10k, which I ran in the same time. I started training  after that, and for motivation, joined SJ.

 

Q) What do you enjoy most about being a member of Sandhurst Joggers?

A) It’s got to be the people in the club. I’ve made some life time friends in the club.

 

Q) On which of the weekly runs are we most likely to bump into you?

A) I am normally at Tuesday Intervals, Thursday, and Sunday at the Lookout.

 

Q) I see you’ve mainly run at Bracknell, of the other venues you’ve run at which is your favourite and why?

A) I started at Frimley, and have done a few at Rushmoor. I think Bracknell is my favourite at the moment. It’s more like running Cross Country.

 

Q) You’ve also ran in Ireland and France, tell us more about what those overseas events were like? Much different to a typical UK Parkrun?

A) My first international parkrun was at Clonakilty in Ireland. It’s a 4 lap event around a small show ground. I have also done Fairview parkrun in Dublin, at Mark FS’s stag do. The one in France was at Lac de Divonne, but on a different course to the usual, because of Bastille Day celebrations. Having the run brief in French was a bit different though.

 

Q) What other events are on your programme for 2018?

A) I think I will be running the 10k at the Bournemouth Marathon Festival, and most of the cross countries over the winter and the River Relay.

Sharon Burfield completed a half marathon from Morzine to Avoriaz in the Porte du Soleil region of France. It wasn’t a regular half with lots of steep climbing, nearly 2000m of vertical, some bonus distance and stunning views of the mountains.

Five SJ teams took on a 4km course at Minley Manor in the Hart 4 Trail Relay. The rain just about held off and the light showers provided some refreshment on a humid day in the forest. All the teams did well with the Men’s A and Ladies’ A teams narrowly missing out on category podiums. There was close racing throughout with many of the SJ teams trading places throughout the 4 hour relay event.

Hart 4 SJ results

 

The Burnham Beeches 10k and Half Marathon took place on an undulating course. Great runs all round and especially from Andy Provost who recorded a great time to take 14th position overall and a top 10 category placing.
