Plenty of new personal best times clocked by Halmer Harriers over weekend

Runners from Spalding’s Halmer Harriers ran their own version of the Peterborough Great Eastern Run over the weekend.

Six members of the club wanted to earn the medal they were awarded for being contestants in the original run, which was cancelled the previous weekend.

Those in action were Dawn Allen (2.30.40hrs), Vanessa Smithson (2.30.40hrs), Di Lettice (2.30.40hrs), Alexandra Gills (2.20.00hrs) (PB), Julie Thorold (2.17.00hrs) and Marie Sampson (2.00.03hrs).

It was a busy weekend for other members of the Harriers, too.

At the Thorseby 10k, Colin Crump (50.31mins), Marie Sampson (53.53mins) and Joanne Jacklin (1.32.00) represented the Spalding club well.

Also at Thorseby, Louise Southgate clocked a PB of 1.28.46hrs as she contested the 10-mile version of the course.

There were two personal best times for Halmer runners at the York Marathon, too.
