BAAC Round-the-Block 24th January 2012 results
On probably the worst day's weather we've had for Round the Block, we had 3
elite runners taking part to see who would win this year's coveted Round the
Block trophy. It was a close fought thing and eventually Roderick Hoffman
managed to stave off challenger Fran Kelland to take victory for the first
time in his running career in a time of 27:25. Fran, who was also 1st lady home,
was 16 seconds back recording a time of 27:41, while Steve Newell finished 3rd
in a time of 31:41. Sadly there were no teams, but hopefully a move to a
different venue in future may change that!
Full results are attached.
Well that's it until September. The 'Round the Park' race will take place on
Tuesday 4th September 2012, so don't forget to put the date in the dairy. I will
send out some more details nearer the time.
