Thanks to Mark Burgess who has updated us week upon week with magical statistics of PWR activity, both locally, nationally and internationally. I'm delighted to have been asked to take on the role of PWR results reporter and therefore, here is the update for last week (1-8 September).
Thursday 5th September saw the last race of the summer 5k(ish) Assembly league at Beckenham. 8 PWRs turned up to represent the club on this fast but hilly course.

Saturday 7th September was of course parkrun day as usual for most PWRs. Most people chose Bromley this week, although we were represented at Dulwich, Hilly Fields and Orpington in addition.
Nicola Thompson, Sacha Townsend and Stephen Faulkner all achieved course PB's.Brilliant effort. Great to see our club members contributing to the volunteer team at Bromley, Fiona Abiola Musa by pacing, and David Allison choosing to be the tailrunner and motivating some of the slower runners around the course.

The Weald St George 10k was the location for the next event in the PWR Grand Prix on Sunday 8th September. This event was highly recommended as a nice local, scenic race starting on the village green. It did not disappoint and apart from 'that hill' everyone seemed to enjoy the route. 27's PWRs took part and recorded some brilliant times. Oh, and most people got to give Kelly Holmes a sweaty hug. What more could you want in a race?
Lots of prizes were won; Hannah Roberts as 3rd overall lady, Kate Suckling as 3rd lady F35-44, Johnny Gill and John Gurney 2nd & 3rd males 50-59, Richard Dunstan 2nd male 60+ and lastly the ladies team overall 2nd place.Phew!
Lots of points won to contribute towards the Grand Prix, watch out for an update on the current standings from our resident stats expert, Natalie.
Some club members chose to enjoy a bit of off road running instead of competing in the Grand Prix, taking a trip to the Eridge 10 mile 'proper cross country' race. 6 brave souls enjoyed a well earned pint (or three) after the challenging 10 mile course - Looks like these guys are more than ready for the start of the cross country season!
