The 16th May saw the third running of the Hullavington Half Marathon & 5K. With the UK Government restrictions not easing until the next day we had to stage the event in accordance with social distancing guidelines and adhering to the rule-of-six we set off fifty waves with upto six runners in each.
First back to the Hullavington Arms in the 5K was last year’s winner, Ben Coles of Swindon Harriers who recorded a time of 15-minutes and 26-seconds with the runners up spots taken by his club mates Courtenay Chessell and Gary O’Brien. The first three Ladies also had a very close race with Rosie Oates of Cirencester RSE just ahead of Deborah Hunt from Bristol & West AC and Elizabeth Wainwright of Swindon Harriers.
First runner back in the Half Marathon in a rapid 70-minutes and 56-seconds was James Millward of the RAF, followed by Simon Byrne of Swindon Harriers and Ollie Campbell of Cirencester AC. For the Ladies, Catie O’Donoghue of Bristol & West AC led the way home in a time of one-hour twenty five minutes, followed by Sophie Voller of Westbury Harriers and Martina Cambruzzi from Yatton.

Following the statement from the Prime Minister that lockdown is going to continue until at least 8th March, we have no alternative but to postpone the inaugural running of the Hullavington 20-miler until the corresponding weekend in 2022 (6th March).
Congratulations to all that completed the Hullavington Secret Santa Run, we hope that you enjoyed the hastily reorganised route which meant that the 10-miles became a long 7-miles or maybe a short 8-miles.
Results are online here, however due to a large number of runners joining altenative waves to those that were allocated there may be a few timing anomolies, please drop me a line if you spot one.
I would also like to note that 100% of all race starters undertook a pre-race temperature check – I hope that you like your festive sticker 🙂
At the request of the local authority The Wiltshire 10 which was being planned for Sunday 14th February at Melksham will not now be taking place. Wiltshire Council acknowledged that the COVID19 compliance measures that were being operated by Stampede Sports were good however, they could not sanction several hundred runners being present in the Town Park at this time.
We are looking at an alternative event to take place in either February or March at Hullavington to fill this gap in the race calendar.
The Hullavington Half Marathon saw Adam Stokes of Bristol & West AC storm home in a new course record time of 70-minutes 09-seconds with the Stroud AC duo of Nicholas Coyle and Lee Stopford just 20-seconds behind.
The Ladies race also saw a new course record as Charlotte Taylor-Green of Clevedon AC stormed home in 78-minutes 42-seconds ahead of Holly Rush of Avon Valley Runners and Chelsea Baker of the Royal Navy.
Results are now online here
