There are a couple of club rules with regards to club records which are essentially the same as those for the annual club championships. For road records the course distance must be certified by the Association of Course Measurers (events which have been certified usually include the certificate number or measuring wheel symbol within the event details or event website. Alternatively certified races are listed here). The course should be classified as road and not trail, mixed terrain etc. Track records are to be from recognised track events with approved/qualified timekeepers. It would typically be expected that results from both road and track races would be available on the Power of 10 website.
There have been some records set by both men and women since the last update earlier this year.
Louise Read set a new parkrun best time in the senior ladies category beating her old record by a few seconds by running 20:26 at Rushcliffe in May. She followed this up by running 19:49 at Long Eaton in July to set a new record in the W35 category. On the same day at the same course Christine Heaton broke her own W50 record whilst running 19:43.
At the summer league 5 mile race held at the NWSC it was Louise and Christine breaking records again; Louise running 32:11 and Christine running 32:35. At the Ashby 20 mile road in March, Claire Hayes set a new best time in the W40 Category by running 2:25:51 and Christine Heaton set a new record in the W50 Category with a time of 2:23:37. The final set of recent road records set this year was again by Louise Read and Christine Heaton both running new club bests at the London Marathon. Louise with 3:13:00 to set a new senior aldies best time and Christine running 3:11:31, Christine now holds all the road records within the W50 category.
There have also been some record breaking performances from the men.
Kevin Ford broke his own M55 record at Rushcliffe parkrun on the 15th July with a time of 19:02. At the new Grand Prix race on the embankment Matthew Nutt broke the senior men’s 5K time with a time of 16:03. Earlier in the year, Matthew Clapp set a new M45 best for the marathon in Paris with a time of 2:47:24. At the Cliffs Handicap in January, David Greenwood set a new M40 best known time of 34:40. Finally, in the men’s road racing category, there have been inaugural records set in the M80 category by Neil ‘Flash’ Hamilton. Flash has set records at parkrun, 5 Miles, 10K and round the lake.
At the track championship in July a number of records were set.
In the 100m Friedel Plant set an inaugural record in the W70 category with a time of 25.6 second. In the same category, Sandy Poole set a 200m record of 47.6 seconds. Also in the 200m Edith Van Loon set a new club best W45 time of 34 seconds. In the 800m Anna Heaton set a new best time in the Senior category with 2:46.8, narrowly edging out her mum Christine who set a new W50 time of 2:47.5. Sandy Poole set a new W70 best time of 3:58.5.
In a closely contested mile race Anna Heaton beat Hannah Sampson by 1 tenth of a second to set a senior women’s best time of 6:04.4.
