Ashley Burridge - Timekeeper

Hello everyone. I hope that you and your families are all keeping safe and well in these strange and difficult times. Hopefully by the time you read this we will have a clearer picture of when we may return to some semblance of normality including a return to training and competition.  

Happy Birthday Malcolm!

I am reliably informed that today is Malcolm's birthday. Please join me in wishing him a very Happy Birthday. No change of age category for Malcolm this year.  I do know that he celebrated with an 8.6 mile run though. 

EA Virtual Road Relays

This weekend saw the culmination of Round 2 of the England Athletics Virtual Road Relays with all runs having  to be completed by 23:59 yesterday (Sunday 21st February) and uploaded by midday today. A total of 22 RPAC runners submitted times with the fastest 4 men and fastest 4 ladies scoring for the team.

You will recall that in the preliminary round we finished in 35th place with a total time of 4:01:52. This time we did even better and finished in 24th place with a total time of 3:54:21.

Scoring for the team were George Roux (26:21), Thomas Almond (26:24), Matthew Ryde (26:36), Francis Dunham (26:54), Ginevra Stoneley (30:49), Joanna Davey (31:38), Natalie Wilson (32:21) and Eloise Bull (33:18). Nearly everyone who had competed in Round 1 improved on their time in Round 2. Well done to everyone who submitted a time. For a small club we punch well above our weight!

From Round 2 the club finishing in first place will go through to the final round competing against the top teams from Athletics Northern Ireland, Scottish Athletics and Welsh Athletics in March. That club is Wirral AC with a total time of 3:32:39. For comparison with us, Wirral AC is the largest athletics club on the Wirral peninsula and has over 400 members.

A full list of RPAC runners and their results is shown in the section below.  

Jimmy James Handicap 

As you know we decided to make the EA Virtual Road Relays a handicap race with each participant submitting a target time which was subject to rigorous scrutiny and adjustment by Malcolm and myself. 

The full results are shown below. It gives me great pleasure to announce that Ewan McKay is thus the winner of the Jimmy James Handicap Trophy for 2021.   


 Senior Club Championship Competitions for 2021

Despite the proposals for easing lockdown there still remains significant uncertainty about which races will actually happen this year and the potential for clashes with league fixtures, etc. In view of this the Team Captains and Committee agreed that for this year only the senior 10K, 10 mile and Half Marathon Championships will be awarded based on the fastest times recorded by RPAC athletes on Power of 10. Hopefully this is clear but if you have any questions please ask    

 Keep in touch

 It's more important than ever that we keep in touch with each other at this time. Stay safe everybody. Please let us know if there is anything you'd like to see in the newsletter.
