Parkruns provided the main events for the endurance squad this weekend.

Leading home the Basildon field was 15 year old Ellis Swindell with a time of 20m04s which is a good personal best for the Westcliff High School pupil.

In the Thurrock Parkrun results: Toby Draper 18m51s, Anthony Tobin 19m11s, Keith Willett 19m32s, Mason Hambleton 19m49s, Mick Bumstead 20m10s, Henri Willett 20m28s and Bernie Johnson 21m41s. At this event, Jamie Mack received the trophy as the top under 15 runner of the year.

In the Leigh on Sea Striders 10k road race on Sunday Toby Draper was again in good form finishing 19th in 39m15s. In 24th place Keith Willett showed good form to record 40m11s. In 33rd place Nick Trencher was 41m37s. The entries for this race closed at 650.

This week many of the endurance squad will tackle the ultra fast Chelmsford 10k hoping to improve their personal bests.
