In the Isle of Wight Half Marathon, Hilary Searle continued her good run of form, coming home first in her age group, in a time of 1.52.46. Dave Baker achieved a personal best of 1.47.58 and, in front of both of them, Danny Mannion ran well to finish in 34th place with a time of 1.34.53. Meanwhile on the mainland, Ian Jolliffe stopped off on the way back from a trip to Wales to run the bizarrely-named Conkwell Killer, a race of just over 8 miles. He finished 24th in 59.46.

Next Wednesday they meet at 7pm. at the car park just east of the Horse and Groom, Ningwood (grid. ref. 402892). Non-members are welcome.
