WARR World Airline Road Race 2014 Dublin - Results
[Note: Although I'm all for putting in compromising pictures you should be aware that for official team photographs I'll usually "Photoshop" different shots together so that everyone looks at their best. I had five pictures to choose from and Mark is stuffing his face in all of them. So clearly that is the image he wanted us all to see!]
Other photographs (and videos) are starting to appear on Facebook pages including my own - Facebook BA Awards Photographs
In addition to the individual awards listed above the BAAC team would expect to be awarded the following [the word "expect" is included because firstly the awards were not given out on the night and secondly the first draft of the awards results suggest a different allocation].
5k Men 1st Overall Team,
5k Women 2nd Overall Team,
10k Men 1st Overall Team [the draft has Swiss winning this...but all three of our team beat all three of theirs!]
Cross Country bonus on 25th October
British Airways A/C has been invited to run at Sandhurst Barracks on 25th October.
If anybody is interested in this very good event can they please let me know as soon as possible at email@example.com . Anybody who would like to run, I need to have, car make and colour, registration number and names of all people traveling in car, as soon as possible please. I need this information for security at the main gate. Anybody not done this race before it's roundabout 6 miles long with some hills but with some very good food at the end. Last year BA came home 4th.
Many thanks, Gary Rushmer

Club parkrun results for Saturday 11th October
Numbers were down this week as attention switched to the Cross Country league meetings in Richmond Park.
Julie Barclay made a welcome return to action after four months on the sidelines and set a new age category record (WV50) at Woking with a time of 23:29 and a WAVA score of 75%, our best of the day.
Alan Anderson set off with his usual enthusiasm at Gunnersbury but slowed to a walking pace after an attack of cramp in the second half nevertheless still finishing in under 30 minutes. That probably persuaded him that cycling over to Richmond Park for the cross country was not such a good idea.
Scott Davison reappeared at Bedfont Lakes after his summer break and Steve Taylor ran his best time so far at Northala Fields. Roderick Hoffman was in the West Midlands for a run at Kingsbury Water, his 91st different parkrun, the club's 134th. Roderick intends to get to 100 different parkruns by the end of the year and the nine he has mapped out will all be new to the club AND six of them are within an hours drive of the club house. This is made possible by the growth of parkrun - Panshanger (Hertford), Harcourt Hill, Cranleigh, Tring and Harlow are all new parkruns staring in October and November.
