Results from Event #28, 12th December 2020

There were a lot of comments this morning about how Fly 5k has continued to motivate us to get out, and it seemed like a fair few people didn’t really feel like running today, BUT because of the Fly 5k support, you did. Well done.

As others have said before: getting a PB is amazing, getting a good time is brilliant, but getting out is the most important thing.

There were 172 runners today; 8 first timers (you will get a race number ahead of next week – thanks for joining us); and for a week when it appeared that people struggled to get motivated, there were actually 21 Fly 5k PBs. Fantastic!

And there were two new running clubs this week – welcome to Avon Valley Runners and to the Running Sisters Network.

Podium results, with a big cheer, were:


1) Sarah McGRATH, St Albans AC (19:00)

2) Emma STEPTO, Cornwall AC (19:18)

3) Jenny MAGINLEY, St Albans Striders (20:11)


1) Oscar LOVEDAY, St Albans AC (16:27)

2) Rob TREVOR, Havering AC (17:10)

3) Paul WHEAR, Cornwall AC (17:25)

Age Graded

1) Paul WHEAR, Cornwall AC (86.70%)

2) Emma STEPTO, Cornwall AC (85.58%)

3) Oscar LOVEDAY, St Albans AC (81.76%)

And a massive congrats to the following for completing their 20th Fly 5k: Ed Bailey, Kate Burn and Nick Kleanthous; and for completing their 10th Fly 5k: Jim Brown, Rose Crabb, Isabelle Head, Oscar Loveday and Sophie Weaver.

And more congratulations to Oscar Loveday for a PB, top of the table, and for breaking his own age category record (JM 15-17). It was a good day for Oscar.

I’ve loved hosting again. And I have been slicker this time (results and a race report available before bedtime today). But that is down to the awesome Graham Smith and his behind the scenes support, and because this growing community of runners are out there supporting each other, with encouraging comments and likes and loves. I am so proud to be part of it.
