5k club champs and Grand Prix results

Last night over 60 Serpies took part in the 5k club champs, the fourth and final race in the Grand Prix race series.

In the 5k, Anna Lawson (18:46) won the women’s race, Nicolas Besson the men’s race (15:51) and Andrew Reeves (86.3%) won the age-graded competition.  Results are on the club website.


In the Grand Prix series (covering the 1k, 1m, 3000m and 5k races over the last month) Anna Lawson won the women’s competition, Joost Vogel the men’s and Andrew Reeves the age-graded competition.  The full set of results is also online (in the PDF document at the bottom of the page).


Congratulations to all our winners, and thank you to all our volunteers - particularly Ian and Sally Hodge, Malcolm French, Daisy Gladstone, Sam Day and Lee Tolentino.  I hope that everyone enjoyed taking part.


The next club championship race is the half-marathon in Maidenhead on 1 September, followed by the 10k at the Middlesex and Open on 29 September.  Entries are still open and more information is on the club champs section of the club website and on a recent news item here.


The marathon club championship race is a virtual race i.e. covers all recognised marathons and not one particular race, and covers the whole of 2019, so it is still possible to take part in that.  There is also an age-graded championship covering all our road and Grand Prix championship races, and we’ll announce the winners of those at the end of the year.
