RUNNERS TAKE A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE
Updated: Nov 11, 2019
Five members of City of Salisbury Athletics and Running Club (CoSARC) headed out to the USA last weekend to compete in the New York City Marathon, one of the world’s six marathon majors. All five completed the 26.2 miles, with three finishing in less than four hours.
Chris Maple was first over the line in 03:34:49, followed by Alison Holloway (03:56:13), Benjamin Smith (03:59:12), Vicky Robinson (04:11:56) and Natalie Milsted (06:48:34).
Another CoSARC runner having a successful weekend in the US was Jaymee Domoney, who was competing for Charlestown Southern University, where he studies, in Division One of the NCAA XC. Finishing the 8km course in 8th place in 25:33 - a minute faster than last year – this guarantees him a place in the All Big South Run Team. His team was 2nd overall.
Closer to home, a big wave of blue vests was seen at the third event in the Hampshire Road Race League, Hayling 10 mile, and the 45 Salisbury finishers managed some impressive results.
First home was club chairman Stuart Holloway in 00:57:24, taking 5th overall and 1st in his age category. He was followed by Rob Drag in 10th (00:58:52) and Benedict Saunby in 17th (1:00:09).
CoSARC’s first woman home was Ruth Holloway in 1:08:43, finishing 9th in the woman’s race and 2nd in her age category. The club’s second female finisher was Anna Patrickson (01:12:18, 16th woman) achieving a personal best, with Sarah Brewster behind her (1:16:46, 33rd woman).
Michael O’Connell (1:45:15) completed the distance for the first time, Linda Robson (01:24:17) knocked one minute and 40 seconds off her previous 10-mile time, Jackie Hassan (01:25:55) knocked 2 minutes and 58 seconds of her previous best and Helen Carlton (01:27:52) a whopping 12 minutes, with coach Craig Weatherburn (01:06:44) and Marc Hankins (01:08:42) achieving personal bests, too.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Croom ran the Snowdonia Marathon last week, completing the hilly course in 3:55.
