Paddock Wood Athletic Club
Monthly Mile Time Trial (Feb) 2017
February saw only 14 PWAC athlete’s brave very wet and windy conditions to run the mile time trial. Far from ideal weather conditions to run a good time but despite that there were some excellent runs and times on the night.
First home on the night was new club member Clive Gigney in a very respectable 5.32.6., Clive was chased down the home straight by the machine that is know as David Sampson, David finished in 5.35.2 next home was Sam Parrett, Sam was timed at 5.57.4. Darren Hendley a time trial first timer completed the top four home with a time of 6.12.1. First lady home and one of only 3 women running on the night was Dianne Tilston in a time of 8.07.8. Sadly on the night Daniel Grimwood had to pull up injured after 2 laps, nothing to serious I’m glad to say.
Once the results were age graded 4 runners produced impressive Gold Standard runs. Coming out on top on the night and showing that age is not a barrier was David Sampson with a Gold Standard 3 run and Penny Roberts a Gold Standard 2 run.
A big thank must go to Miriam Dorrity and John Tilston for braving the elements to look after the time keeping and track judging duties and Keeley Hoad for coming along and videoing the trial. The results have been age-graded by John Tolhurst (thank you John) using the latest World Masters Association 2015 tables: http://www.howardgrubb.co.uk/athletics/wmalookup15.html
You can use your mile time to get an approximate 10k time by multiplying your time by 7.2.
