Odd Down 5k Track Day & Butcombe Ultra Trail

Results from Saturday 23rd April

There was great running last Saturday over very contrasting distances!

5 club members headed to the Bristol Track Club 5k at Odd Down Cycle Track. Polly ran a superbly controlled race and dipped under the 20 minute mark for the first time, finishing in 19:56. In the Men’s race Jack Richardson was first home for the club, also with a new PB of 16:19, followed by Ben 16:34, Steve 16:58 and Jack Last, also hitting a new best 5k time of 17:28.

Congratulations to Eloise, who was really happy to have completed her 100th Parkrun with a strong run at the Salthouse Fields event.

Covering a much longer distance, Rob Grubb and Simon Dodd took part in the Butcombe Trail Ultra – a 50-mile self-navigation ultramarathon with 2000m of ascent that criss-crosses the Mendip Hills. Well done to both who completed the epic distance together in 19hrs:34:30.
