Marathon season got off to a great start for CoSARC’s runners.

● Will Pannell 2:35:37;

Vienna City Marathon
Harry Pannell ran a superb race to finish in 2:52:34 in the Vienna City Marathon.
In the recent Figsbury 5K Challenge, runners had to go from the back of Winterbourne Earls Primary School, up the hill to Figsbury Iron Age Hill Fort, do two laps of Figsbury Rings and charge back down to the school.
It was an overcast day, with threats of rain and the cool temperature was ideal for the runners.
The top three places were taken by CoSARC U15 Boys: In first place was Freddie Bosworth, second went to James Gabriel, with Art Mitchell in third place.
A number of CoSARC runners did very well at recent Parkruns when they bagged themselves personal best times, with junior runner Stanley Stuart managing personal bests at both local Parkruns.
CoSARC runners at Salisbury Parkrun were:
● Charlie Coles 17:25;
● Andy Budgell 20:26;
● Stanley Stuart 22:07.
While at Churchill Gardens Junior Parkrun, the speedsters were Magena Lovatt-Williams 8:09 and Stanley Stuart 8:47.
