BRAT Success at Worcestershire Summer Series

BRAT enjoyed a number of brilliant finishes within the Worcestershire Midweek Series, a run of four challenging races of varying lengths and terrain along some beautiful courses.

The first race was a 10km multi-terrain race across the Hagley countryside, there was a great BRAT turnout on what was a lovely balmy evening. Simon Lanckham stormed home in first place overall with second BRAT male being Ben Beaumont (13th overall). Molly Browne claimed first women home (9th overall) backed up by a strong second lap from Jen Dale to take the second women spot (32nd overall).

The second race was a testing 12km race through the Arrow Valley Park with some difficult hill climbs. The first BRAT back after a tough two lap course was Molly Browne (7th overall, 1st women), closely followed by Huw Jones (16th), Ben De Laune (27th) and Rosie Davies (40th overall, 2nd women).

The penultimate race bore less mud but no fewer hills, a rather undulating 10km along the roads of rural Droitwich. Molly Browne led the club home and secured the 1st women spot, again chased closely by Huw Jones (24th) and Jen Dale (2nd women) who ran an excellent sub 39 minute race, smashing her previous PB. Mark Connell was the second BRAT man home dipping inside the top 60, a great evening for team BRAT!

The final race which concluded the series and determined the overall finishing positions for the league (best of 3 races) was a 5 mile off road route at Clent. Molly Browne secured the series win with 1st women home (13th overall), with Ben De Laune first BRAT man home (27th overall). Rosie Davies made it a BRAT 1,2 securing 2nd women at Clent and within the league with two 2nd and a 6th place finish, Danielle Bogue had a great run despite a ridiculous number of hours spent at work leading up to the race, she finished 5th overall for the series. Both Louise Beasley and Claire Jackson took their silver medals home for their age groups after a 3rd, 4th and 5th place finish across the series. The men also saw two top 10 finishers; Ben De Laune 9th in the male open, and Martin Ludford 6th in his age group. All in all a fantastic set of results and thoroughly enjoyable races throughout the league, I am sure that BRAT’s will be well represented next year!

All BRATs who completed at least one race: Molly Browne, Rosie Davies, Danielle Bogue, Sarah Bakewell, Jen Dale, Eloise Lee, Daisy Wilson, Louise Beasley, Lisa Tindle, Claire Jackson, Ben De Laune, Chris Anthony, Robert Dowse, Simon Lanckham, Ben Beaumont, Huw Jones, Martin Clever, Nick Forrest, Mark Connell, Graeme Mallewwan, Steven Pitchford, Martin Ludford, Stephen Thompson and Richard Carney.

BRATs at the Waseley Wobbler

Sunday 21 September saw another splendid BRAT turnout and performance for the Waseley Wobbler. The annual rampage across Waseley and Lickey saw BRATS packing well and claim both male and female team competitions. The women in fact claimed five of the top six places!  A performance that bodes well for the forthcoming cross country season. Yaz Chaudhri rounded off back to back weekend racing and won the ladies race closely followed by Anne Kenchington and Eloise Lee. Robin Biles, setting off at a furious pace, led the way home claiming second place overall and leading the BRAT team to a satisfying win over Bromsgrove and Redditch. All in all lots of sun, fun and trophies with smiling BRAT faces. Special mention to Hirschy for valiantly accompanying his daughter around the course despite a nasty tangle with barbed wire – hope all is recovering well!
