A few notable multisport running performances over the weekend…

The Trafford 10km and Cambridge Half Marathon were among the events we spotted this past weekend with some familiar names running and performing well…

Trafford 10km – FULL RESULTS

Plenty of PB’s with top honours going to Richard Horton (2nd, 29:27), but we also spotted Danny Russell (30:33), Carl Avery (30:48), Oliver Mott (31:06) plus triathlete Sian Rainsley (36:33 / 36:27 chip)

Will Clarke (1:11:42) used the race as a bit of a structured interval session and still finished eighth, while just a few seconds behind Tom Vickery crossed the line in 10th with a 1:11:58 chip time and a personal best

Perhaps it was her special pre-race preparation that did it? On Saturday Lucy ran a park run event with her young ‘super fan’, Billie-Jordan Butler:

One athlete who is now ‘retired’ (from Elite Paratriathlon…!) is 2016 Rio Paralympian, Clare Cunningham. With some longer distance races planned this year, the PT4 athlete clocked 1:34:53
