Rutland Running and Triathlon Club round-up





Emma Brown from Rutland Running and Triathlon Club maintained her high standings at the Draycote Water Festival half-marathon.

She had produced a brilliant sub three-hour London Marathon performance recently and backed that up with a time of 1hr 26mins which was enough to see her as first lady home and eighth quickest overall after an outstanding display.

Becks Carter took part in her first ultra marathon event in a 47-mile race around Lake Windermere which involved a 2,500m ascent and ungroomed trails.

The race is not for the faint hearted and the weather was not kind with more than 100 participants not finishing.

Showing true grit and determination, Becks did an amazing job, finishing in 15:54:52 and putting Rutland on the map.

The previous weekend saw the first Burghley House Multi-Sport event.

Several members of the club took part over the two days and Saturday saw Saya Harvey, Sara Mcwhan and Eve Tarleton take part in the half marathon.

Saya was first home in a brilliant 1:40, followed in by Eve (2:10) and Sara (2:18), all in excellent times considering the mixed terrain and hills.

Elaine Danby and Harriet Mcwhan were also running on the Saturday in the 10k, finishing in 52:35 and 1:01 respectively.

Both deserve particular credit as Elaine was awarded a podium spot as second lady and Harriet kept going after suffering a knee injury.

Sunday saw Julia Mannering completing the Sprint Tri in a great time of 1:39 which secured first in her age group after a very brave performance despite being unwell.
