Congratulations to Mark who completed a Bob Graham Round last Sat 1st August, one of the speediest rounds by a club member.
Just rewards we think, for a couple of years’ dedicated training (not to mention taking part in just about every race going !) since he moved ‘uup north’.
Mark’s generously provided a copy of his schedule, and a writeup, and a few pictures, which are below.
He’d also like to thank all his pacers and supporters…. ‘Thank you so much for all your support – everything went perfectly and I couldn’t have done it without you! Loads of people got involved; thanks go to official support runners Col Allott, Nathanael Booker, Billy Parkinson, Nic Barber, Matt Johnson, Rob Gittins, Stefan Bramwell and Matt Lynas; awesome people who came out to get involved and run bits of the course too Allen Bunyan, David Vincent, Barrie Thomason, Bernard Mccarron; anyone who came to a checkpoint to offer a smile and a friendly face Tom Whittington, Nancy Bunyan and John, Emma Vincent; road support from Angela Drakeford and Emma Mason; Carl Hanaghan who navigated my L1 recce… and couldn’t have done any of it at all without the wonderful Emma Jayne who project-managed the whole thing. And thanks to all of you at Macclesfield Harriers and Bollington Harriers who have run with me over the past few years.’
Well done Mark !
