TRP Race Report
As many athletes thoughts turn towards cross country there are many ways to attain and maintain fitness and Tavistock Run Project ran the full gamut of events over the weekend.
At the monthly Tavistock 5k, Umberto Bergonzini lived up to the tropical storm named after him by breezing to a time of 22 mins and 22 seconds. Meanwhile, in the Plymouth Coasters 5 miler Matt Teague ran a time of 30 mins 59 seconds for 5th place. Running over multi-terrain, Hannah Walters competed strongly in the Dartmoor Trail Marathon. Further afield, at the Swindon Half Marathon, Corin Russell ran a new personal best dipping under the 1:40 barrier in a time of 1 hour 39 minutes 29 seconds. On the international front, while on a work placement in Bavaria, Marc Smerdon secured 5th place in the Seenlandmarathon in a time of 2 hours 53 minutes. Finally, it would be remiss not to mention the TRP runners who took part successfully at the Weymouth Ironman Triathlon event.
