End Of Season XC League

It was a great XC season for Rachel C this winter, finishing with a strong 3rd place in the masters division and helping the team take the top spot! The final race of the season was a mud fest but Rachel put in another fantastic performance, finishing higher than ever before in the Inter-counties XC. Now the focus switches to finding a fast 10K before starting an attack on the summer track season! We can’t wait to see Rachel smashing some PB’s over the shorter distances.


Parkrun PB

46 parkruns and 3.5 years later, Rachel C put in a brilliant performance to break her longstanding Parkrun PB. It’s not been an easy few years for Rachel after breaking her ankle but since joining us at Running Made Easy a few months ago she has come on leaps and bounds! Clocking 19:35, we have no doubt that she’ll be getting closer to the 19 minute barrier over the summer.


Benidorm Half – 2nd Place

With her sights set on a PB, Lauren headed into Benidorm Half in fantastic shape. But sometimes it’s not always about the time! A tough, hilly course and rainy conditions denied her of a PB race this time around but Lauren put in a brilliant performance to take 2nd place – finishing behind professional New Balance athlete Eli Kirk!


1.27.05 was a brilliant run. Congrats Lauren!

Surrey Half 5K – 2nd lady for Lydia!

Backing up a fine performance over the 10K with a 3rd place finish a few weeks previously – Lydia went one better to finish 2nd lady at the Surrey Half 5K clocking a fine 19:30!

“2nd lady at the Surrey Half 5K🥈 One of those weird races where I was convinced I still had another 10 women in front of me but it turns out only one, and she was only 15 seconds ahead. Damn it. 🙈 Quite pleased with 19:30.0 on the dot as I’ve got so much going on life-wise at the moment that training hasn’t been too consistent. Faster than my last 5K but not quite sure I deserve it. Onwards to the track season!”

Thorpe Park Half Marathon

After a disrupted build up, Rachel B took the Thorpe Half Marathon as a training run. Focus has now switched to the Surrey Half Marathon for a proper PB attempt!

“This is the first half I’ve ever done not taken as a PB attempt. And I loved it! I took the first 7 miles super easy, then pick it up a little for mile 8, with miles 9-13 pushing for goal half pace.

I absolutely love this event, and I’m so pleased I was fit enough to take part, even if it was just a training run.”
