Dill’s Dash 7 miles – 6 August 2017

This was the inaugural running of Dills Dash, a 7 mile race around the lanes and scenic countryside of Fernhill Heath in Worcester, set up to raise funds for The Alzheimers Society.  The race HQ was at the County Sports Playing Fields where the event started and finished and was run mainly on undulating roads, incorporating the dreaded Jacob’s Ladder within the first 2 miles, and canal towpaths.  

Malvern Joggers were keen to support this very worthwhile cause and were well represented.  First Jogger home was Matt Scriven in a time of 43:06 (4th overall and 1st MV40) followed by Jon Newey (43:16), Nic Dauncey (48:12), Adam Grant (50:31), Andy Milton (52:52), Steve Roode (55:02), Ian Walwyn (55:37 – 1st MV60), Mark Hartland (55:47), Ian Dyson (56:26), Kareen Mann (57:16 – 1st FV55), Alison Priest (58:33), Amanda Duncan (1:00:09), Jason Protheroe (1:01:23), Julie Caseley (1:03:22), Patricia Johnson (1:08:41), Chris Barker (1:08:43), Helen Reid (1:10:25), Rhian Protheroe (1:11:39), Vivien Tolley (1:11:39) and Megan Judge (1:13:23).
