More Festive fun this week for Barking Road Runners as they held their annual Christmas jumper dinner at the Brewers Fayre pub in Dagenham. Plenty of dodgy Xmas jumpers were evident during the course of the thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Quiet week for runs with only Alison Fryatt and Michael Ball, ably supported by Chris Anastasi, competing. They took part in the festive fun run at Fairlop waters raising money for St Francis Hospice it was a great run if very windy and lots of mud in places. Alison finished the course in 33.49 with Mick finishing not far behind.
Tuesday night at the track was the monthly 1 mile time trial for BRR with some impressive improvements over the recent months. Leading the way was Joe Stacey in a time of 5.13, other sub-6 minute times were James Lowndes and Rory Burr both 5.56, but the biggest improvements were by Mick Grant 8.57 and Hadley Grant 6.30 clipping 2.23 and 4.49 off their previous times respectively.
