The last couple of weekends have seen some fantastic results for Romsey Road Runners. Last week Mark and Sue Stileman took part in the Remembrance Day 10K in Portsmouth. Mark won the event with a a fantastic time of 39mins and 30 secs whilst Sue also finished in an amazing 57 mins 12 secs. This weekend the Stilemans followed this up by travelling to the Cotswolds with Mark completing the Broadway Marathon in 3h 36mins coming in an incredible 5th overall. Sue took part in the Tempo Winter Series 10k finishing 10th in age group with a time of 57 mins 12 secs.
Sunday also saw Romsey Road Runners out in force at the ever-popular Gosport Half Marathon which is part of the Hampshire Road Race League. 13 Romsey Road Runners joined 2000 other competitors in what were perfect race conditions following the double loop course from Stokes Bay along the sea front at Lee On Solent and back. It was a cold clear autumn morning but the sun was shining and the atmosphere was buzzing. This is one of the fastest and flattest half marathons in the UK and the amazing times of the Romsey team really reflected this. First in for Romsey was Alex Prinsep in a Personal Best (PB) time of 1hr 22mins and 51 secs. Next came Remi Francois (1.29.28 PB), Becky Tovey (1.33.51 PB), Ian Winkworth (1.34.08), Nigel Hemsted (1.35.29 PB), Hannah Semeraro (1.39.27), Christopher Brown (1.41.01), Dave Gardner (1.41.46), Cliff Reeves (1.44.47 PB), Ben Sharman (1.47.55), Liz Prinsep (1.48.49), Alice Lane (1.52.31) and Keith Morris (1.53.29).
