Shelford Fun Run 2019: The Results

What a beautiful day, and so fantastic to see the village out in force and welcoming runners from all around the county (and beyond!)!

Start line before the raceWe had the most Shelford Fun Runners to date!

348 finishers!  Amazing!

The chip timing company brought with them some zippy new technology that made checking in a breeze and results were pretty instantaneous with text messages after the race.

New service facilities on the recreation ground (part of the Shelford Playscape masterplan) enabled us to have all the refreshments and entertainments in one zone, so we were able to keep the ‘race village’ nice and organised.

This year we also introduced a split start to give elite runners plenty of room to get off the mark, and the winners results were:

Patrick O’Hare (Male Adult): 16:35.9

Mikey Halton (Male U18):  19:47

Oliver Seaborn (Male U11): 20:02

Super speedy Oliver, who was hot on the heels of the 1st male U18,  just pipped the first woman to the post!

Nicola McBride  (Female Adult): 20.17

There was a bit of confusion as to which female under 18 arrived first, but judging by the finishing photos it was Sofia Munoz.  However, as she was wearing her father’s bib, she didn’t appear in her age category (Dad, you might want to keep your daughter’s time though!).  Making the female under 18s race a family affair…

Sofia Munoz (Female U18): 23:30

Emi Munoz (Female U11): 23.53
