Easter 10
Thanks to lots of hard work by lots of people, this year's race on Good Friday 14th April was again a great success.  The weather was kind to us and entries were up by 6% on last year.  Particular thanks must of course go to Jon Kew in his first year a Race Director and to Judi Jeffries as Chief Marshal.

Whilst most Club members were helping the event to run smoothly, we do enter a team (by invitation). Also, a few new members ran who had already entered before joining MAC. Some very impressive times here.

Beaconsfield Trail Race

On Easter Monday 13 MAC members took part in the fifth Beaconsfield 5mile trail race.  The weather was a little on the cool side to start, but within minutes the conditions turned out to be perfect.  A really well organised race through private grounds and when you could take your eyes off the ground you could catch a glimpse of bluebells.  Jon Kew was first home for Maidenhead.  The full results are as follows:

 
Jon Kew 31.02
Jon Oliver 34.23
Alejandro Del Campo  35.00
Jeremy Lockett 36.36
Dymphna Murphy  37.05
Adam Mileham   37.56
Chris Ellis 38.59
Paul Thomas   39.54
Carolyn Lockett  41.51
StJohn Ford 41.55
Pauline Siddons 45.23
Ian McKenzie  46.45
Rosie Ellis   47.42

Pauline came first in her age category.

Le Touquet Half-Marathon
This year's race on the northern French coast takes place on Saturday 5th August.  The Club usually sends a contingent of runners for the weekend. Look out for a more detailed message in the next few days.

Membership renewals
Senior membership renewals are almost complete. Finals reminders will go out today to the remaining few hold-outs! Remember: participation in the summer 5k series is for paid-up members only.
