If you didn't already know, the Herts Sports Partnership organises sports and physical activities across Hertfordshire. Right now, we are working closely with community organisations in the below areas to develop a variety of sport and physical activity opportunities. To do this effectively we would like to find out the opinions of the residents.
If you live in:
It was waves and ripples again but another real 10K race on Sunday. However the temperature had dropped about twelve degrees in a few days and the breeze was up in the exposed parts of the course at Lee Valley Run Fest.
Nine Spartans enjoyed the event. 14th overall and with a new personal best of 36 minutes 24 seconds was ADRIAN BUSOLINI. He said his last actual 10K race was a Midweek League event some 15 months ago, where he just managed to squeeze out a sub-40' - making this a three-and-a-half minute improvement.
Spartan NICK KLEANTHOUS completed a RunSwimRun event in St. Ives on Sunday. It consisted of five runs and four swims in the River Ouse over a 6.4km course. He was very pleased with result coming seventh out of 24 starters and first male 50 plus. It was quite challenging getting in and out of the river. Nick says it was well organised and marshalled well and reports he had his lucky FVS vest on under his wet suit.
More Spartans have enjoyed some “real” races.
GRANT RAMSAY was at the Milton Keynes Enigma Marathon.
To be Covid compliant the event was capped to 30 runners with a rolling start and full social distancing in place.
Stadium, Stevenage. Lock down and water supply problems have seen the stadium closed for a prolonged length of time. Athletes returned to training on Thursday albeit under very different conditions. Small groups working in ‘bubbles’ and by invitation only are now looking forward to a hard winters work!
One hundred miles in less than a day for Spartan Ciaran. Fairlands Valley Spartan CIARAN McANENY has run a 100 mile race. On Sunday evening he said:
“This was my first 100 mile race and although I had a sliding scale of targets, number one was to get to the finish. I was very lucky to have the support on the day of John Nelms and Sharon Crowley, veterans of the race and crewing and their experience was invaluable."
" am doing this run in Chloe’s everlasting memory but more importantly to raise monies for this amazing charity. The run shouldn’t be too difficult but that’s not the point. I hate asking for sponsorship and am not looking for large individual donations but a few pennies from many will make a huge difference. Thank you."
