Tuttle leads home MK’s runners
The club will need to pull out all the stops this season to regain the Chiltern League title they lost to Bedford and County back in February, the Women in particular will want to improve on their third place overall.
However as usual, the club did not have the best of starts finishing 2nd behind rivals Bedford by a margin of 151 points with Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow a further 342 points behind.
More surprisingly there were no team wins in any of the age categories with the best of 2nd being taken by the Senior Men, Under 17 Men and Under 15 Boys with 3rd for the Under 13 Boys and a much improver Under 11 Girls squad.
Unfortunately there was no resurgence from the rest of the Women’s teams with the Seniors finishing 4th their lowest placing fro several years and the Under 15 Girls were also 4th.
Individually the best result of the day was a superb 2nd by Under 11 Girl Charlotte Underwood taking 7m 40s to complete the course.
There were 5th places for Senior Man Steve Tuttle 32m 05s and Ewan Forsythe 18m 26s, with 6th for F15 Emma Mears 13m 13s and Senior Woman Lara Bromilow in 6th spot taking 26m 10s just eight seconds ahead of 7th placed Elle Roche.
Also in the top ten were: 7th Alfred Yabsley (M15) 18m 45s, 8th Liam Smith (SM) 33m 20s and Owen Seamark (M17) 24m 09s, 9th Jake Cox (M15) 18m 53s and Katie Mallaghan (F13) 10m 30s and 10th Archie Rippin (M17) 24m 18s.
In the Atlantic Coast Challenge consisting of three full Marathons in three days with the first starting just north of Constantine Bay to Perranporth.
The next starting at Perranporth and finishing at St Ives Bay Holiday park with the final run form the previous finish to Lands End huband and wife team Neil (M50) and Jane (F40) Ovington finished the three runs; 52nd 5h 51m 00s, 53rd 5h 22m 31s and 106th 8h 34m 03s with Jane 59th 5h 54m 42s, 55th 5h 22m 42s and 107th 8h 34m 11s.
