Three members of Kenilworth Runners headed to Stourport to take part in the inaugural Danny’s Dash. The 8 (ish) mile very hilly multi -terrain race took in some 1200ft of climbing as the route weaved through Ribbesford Wood and included several stiff climbs akin to fell racing (including some with ropes for assistance). The race was held in memory of Danny Horton, who died aged 36 from a brain tumour. Danny was a Navy veteran and all proceeds from the race will be donated to Help for Heroes and Brain Tumour Research.
Returning from injury, Pete Matthews was pleased to get his teeth back into some hilly running and set off in second place behind fellow Mercia runner and eventual race winner Daniel Brazier. Slipping back into 3rd place at the top of the first climb, Pete clicked off the miles fairly comfortably before the lack of fitness caught up with him at four miles as he slipped back into fifth place which he was able to hold onto, finishing just five seconds behind the runner ahead.
Imogen Peace made a strong start but was struggling on the downhill sections and Richard Whiting reeled her in at around the 3 mile point. The next three miles saw them switching positions before Imogen pulled away on a hill at around six miles to hold position. She finished twelfth overall, third lady, and won the the prize of first senior woman finisher. Richard finished thirteenth, just eleven seconds behind Imogen.
