London Marathon report – 22 April 2018

Louth AC – London Marathon report – 22 April 2018

5 members of Louth AC, all in the Age category 45-49, took part in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon, with one member Clare Koslow running in her first marathon.

Both Andrew Byatt and James McNamee entry in the Good for Age qualification with James attempted to break the Guinness World Record for fastest Viking over marathon distance. Lindsey Marie Phillips a ballot place.  2 charity runners of Jane Lammiman running for the ABF The Soldier’s Charity (formerly the Army Benevolent Fund) which has provided support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families, for life.  Clare Koslow, an Athletic/Running Club place, running for the Alzheimer’s Society for 2 people she had met 14 years ago, Theo and Jean, sadly with the passing of Theo in December 2014 due to the illness.

With an exceptionally hot day and the hottest on record at the London Marathon, weather was not quite record breaking for the competitors and a quote from James “Realized pretty early on that it wasn’t going to happen (on his record attempt) so eased back and enjoyed the crowds of spectators. Love this marathon and will be back for another attempt at the Viking record when it is a tad cooler”.

All agreed there was brilliant support all the way around and they thoroughly enjoyed being part of the London marathon experience.

Times were slower and no Personal bests or Target times achieved but one club member, Clare Koslow, had a fantastic run in her first ever marathon to finish in a credible time of 4 hours 38 min 45 seconds.

Clare and Jane each passed their donation target.

Clare’s target of £350.00 of which the total so far raised is £405.00 + £31.25 Gift Aid. Jane’s target of £1,800.00 of which the total so far raised is £2,376.25 with Gift Aid.

James McNamee – 03.25.57

Andrew Byatt – 03.34.39

Clare Koslow – 04.38.45

Lindsey Marie Phillips – 05.07.14

Jane Lammiman – 05.37.17

All members should be proud of their acheivements.

English Schools Cross Country Championships 2018

English Schools Cross Country Championships 2018

The final and most prestigous junior cross country race of the season was held in the magnificent setting of Temple Newsam Park in Leeds on 17th March 2018.

Each year, approximately 8,000 young people acrosss England in each race category commence the journey of qualifying for this race by competing at District level. From there, through County Championships and then Regional Championships, the top 350, the cream of England’s young athletes have the privelage of competing at this event in eight man county teams.

Louth AC were very proud to have five of their juniors selected to represent Lincolnshire for the 2018 event. For all five, this was the first time they had made it all the way through the selection process.

In the Junior Boys race (Years 8 & 9) Matthew Spendlove ran a spirited race completing the course in 17min 17 sec finishing in 327 place from 347 finishers. In the Junior girls race, Evie Brooks completed a strong winter season with another determined run against older girls crossing the line in 241 place out of a field of 342 finishers in a time of 13min 19 secs

The Intermediate boys race (Years 10 & 11) included the inexperienced Lloyd Buck, a magnificent achievement to reach this level in his first full athletics season. Lloyd came home in 306th from 339 finishers in a time of 21min 29secs.

In the Intermediate Girls race, the Lincolnshire team had two Louth AC members. Both Hannah Reid and Issy Dhami have had outstanding winters and thoroughly deserved their places in the team, running as fourth and fifth points counters.  Both girls got off to very strong starts, however disaster struck when Hannah was tripped and spiked on the first corner and fell to the ground, as she tried to rise she was spiked for a second time and pushed to the ground once again.  When she did scramble back to her feet, she had lost over 100 places as the incident was so close to the start and the field of over 350 were tightly packed.  Hannah however battled her way through the field to eventually finish in 234th place, the highest position achieved by the Louth athletes.  She was closely followed by Issy in 264th place from 339 finishers. The girls times were 16min 32 secs and 16min 49secs respectively. Both of the girls are year 10, so will still be competing in this age group next year when they will be stronger and faster and will be hoping to move up the rankings.

Our club caters for all ages and abilities, from youngsters who want to give it a try, to adults who want to get fit and enjoy the benefits which regular exercise brings.  We are a small friendly club and welcome new members.  Come along and enjoy a free trial period and find out how much fun it is.

Mudlarks

Louth AC had five athletes representing Lincolnshire at the CAU Inter Counties Cross Country Championships which took place at Loughborough on Saturday 10th March.

This competition brings together the top cross country athletes in the UK, with teams travelling from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to compete against all the English Counties. With only eight athletes from every county invited to compete in each race, the club are very proud to have five of their young athletes compete in this prestigious competition. They are rewarded with County badges to recognise their achievements.

Although the weather was fine, conditions underfoot were appalling. The recent snow and rain had reduced the course to a sea of deep mud, which resulted in slower than normal times, a number of retirements and numerous lost shoes !!.

All five of our athletes battled through the mud to complete the course which was a real credit to their strength and determination. In the U15 boy’s race, there were 303 finishers over the gruelling 4.5K course. Lucas George-Jones came home in 261st place followed by Caleb Stephenson in 280th and Matthew Spendlove in 285th position.

In the U15 Girl’s competition run over 4K, the leg sapping mud forced a number of retirals, however 304 girls completed the course. Both of our girls performed strongly, with Hannah Reid finishing in 232nd and Issy Dhami coming home in 248th.

The final race of the season will see a number of the club juniors capping a highly successful winter by competing at the English Schools Cross Country Championships on the 17th March.
