Farnborough 5k – SJ Member Highlights

Alongside the Half Marathon we had a number of members run the 5k event with everyone doing fantastically well. All enjoyed despite the cold and there were a lot of PBs for a cold mid-winter day! Here’s how they found it…

Celeste Moruzzi“I signed up for this event soon after completing the pure beginners course in the summer, not thinking about the January weather. It was freezing waiting for the start of the race! It started with twice round the hanger (going up the same hill twice). It then went to the roads of the business park and then back again, this time going down the hill making for a fast finish. The route was flat and smooth and as I prefer road running to anything else was perfect for me. I finished in 33 minutes 05 seconds my best 5k by 2 minutes so I was very pleased. The added bonus was my husband took our children round the 800m children’s run and they got lovely medals too!”

Sarah Jones“I found the course nice and short and managed a PB!”

Yuliya Fowler“Sandhurst joggers rock!!! That’s all I can say. Everyone is inspirational. Well done to all of them who did 5k and half. It was freezing.”

Vicki Brown“It was Freezing cold morning but a well organized event thank goodness we were able to keep warm in the Village Hotel. I ran as always with some great other Sandhurst Joggers and we were not sure if it was due the cold or the course being flat but managed to get a PB so we were happy with that. Who knows next year we may book in for the half.”
