May 2012 Results

Hello Fellow Runners,

Here are the results for the May Bridges Race.

An excellent turn out and welcome to our four new runners. I hope you enjoyed the event and will choose to run again in future events.

 

Well done to Finn on a fine victory, you are now the man to beat!

 

And thanks to Stuart for given up his time to help with the admin.

 

Finally I will need some help in June so if you would like to volunteer please let me know.

 

And before I forget a message on behalf of Jeremy Barber.

 

RUNNING ALONG THE ROOF OF THE WORLD FOR LONGPARISH VILLAGE HALL

On 29th May Bridges Race Webmaster Jeremy Barber is going to run a marathon in aid of Longparish Village Hall, but this is a marathon with a difference.

 

29th May is the anniversary of the first ascent of Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing and the marathon runs from Everest Base Camp at 17,598 feet above sea level down the Khumbu Valley to Namche Bazaar.  The course is the usual distance of 26 miles and 385 yards plus there's over a mile of descent.  He’ll also have to contend with temperatures down to minus 20 degrees, snow, ice, very steep, rough trails, and air with less than half the oxygen we have at sea level. 

 

Jeremy is already more than £3,000 on the way to his £10,000 target.

Every penny you give will go straight to the project as he's paying all the expenses personally.

Regards

Paul
