2021 Race Reports


There is certainly a lot of love in the air at Dave Shaw’s training sessions these days. After Josh Sabery and Rebecca Kay’s ( Josh n Becs) wedding last year Will Tomlinson and Heather Brown have now named the day for an April Wedding in Cheshire.

The happy couple are obviously very busy making arrangements for the big day and Will has even taking up sewing but is drawing the line at making the bride and bridesmaids dresses. Maybe Heather is drawing the line on that one though – who know !

Despite all that they are still finding time for training and races and actually making quite a good fist of it. They made the short journey across Lancashire for the Garstang 10k on Sunday.

Both in excellent form and numerous podium finishes in the last few months the trend continued. Heather was First Female and 13th overall with an excellent pb of 38 mins 57 seconds and Will was 4th overall (only 7 seconds away from a top 3 finish) in a super time of 34 mins 43 seconds.

Heather commented after the race “first race of the year and a new 10k PB. Wanted to break 39 on that course so I am pleased with the result and feel I have made a good step forward. Great run and fabulous scenic route (just a little lumpy in our coach Dave Shaw’s words!). Onwards and upwards now for 2022!”
