OS Runners take on the New Forest.


Sunday 13th September saw many of our runners take on various events in the New Forest.

It was the first time that these courses had been run.  They were a mixture of compacted gravel and tarmac and had a few hills thrown in for good measure.

We had runners taking part in the Marathon (1), Half Marathon (9) and the 10k (2).

In the Marathon Mark Stileman finished in 11th place with a time of 3:09:51.

Our highest Half Marathon runner, Dean, finished in 120th in 1:36:08, with the rest all finishing with respectable times.  Baz Newman ran his 2nd Half Marathon and took an impressive 15 mins off his PB.  We will have to see what he does in his third one at Southampton in April next year.

In the 10k race Mike Butt was our first finisher with a time of 48:06.  Neil Wilson also ran the 10k with his two sons.


Neil with his boys, all with OSR race number clips.

All runners on the day received the same medal which was fuly deserved.
