Steve C and Len have been in the CaniX groove a couple of times this past two weeks with the 6km Chorlton fun run acting as a warm up for the main event: the Crogen CaniX. This is a tough 14km multi-terrain race comprising fields, forest tracks and moorland. The event organisers – Up Hill Down Dale – make no secret of the fact that the mixture of terrain and the 365 metres of elevation do not lend themselves to an easy potter. Unperturbed by the tough-stuff (as always), Steve and Len (pic) slogged it out to a top 10 finish; in spite of the warm conditions not favouring a big dog like Len. Unfortunately though, the terrain fought back a little and resulted in the flare-up of a knee injury for Steve… disappointingly it looks like he’ll be out of competition for a short while.
In other news, Mick W has been up to his ever-improving tricks again and scored a new PB in the third Trunce of the season knocking out another sub-30 minute run with a 29:38. This was good enough for a 38/380 overall position.
Emma S and Rosie Wigg have both suffered recent minor setbacks with illness / niggling injuries but battled on anyway and, last Wednesday night, raced in the ever-popular evening midweek Askern 10K road race. Cool and damp conditions meant there was a lot of oxygen about and in spite of getting a total drenching both were happy with their performances. Emma finished in the top half of her age group whilst Rose managed a top 10 in hers.
