More soon – but the beta site at clowndes.org.uk/MJ is now just an archive
We’ve been discussing for a while how to make best use of the material in the blog – and the idea is to merge it into the MJ website at http://www.malvernjoggers.co.uk.
More news as things happen 🙂
So far there has been no response to show that anyone is following this blog, so I propose to suspend it at the end of September unless it is useful .
Email if you would like it to continue.
Six Malvern Joggers went to Credenhill for the fourth running of this 6.3 mile Canter which started at 3pm from Credenhill Sports and Social Club. This was a lovely, friendly multi-terrain race which covered quiet country lanes, trails and woodland paths in Credenhill Woods which involved climbing some challenging hills and negotiating technical descents. The finish was at Credenhill Church followed by the prize presentation back at the Sports and Social Club. Over the past 4 years, £6,200 has been raised for the Hereford Special Care Baby Unit.
First Jogger home was Matt Scriven in a time of 45:15, 2nd overall and winning the trophy for 1st Under 50 male, followed by Steve Roode (54:35 – 2nd Under 60 male silver medal), Ian Walwyn (57:59 – 1st Under 70 male trophy), Julie Caseley (1:00:51 – 2nd Under 60 female silver medal), Vivien Tolley (1:16:54) and Lorraine Bunn (1:16:59).
The race at Clent Hills was the final event in a series of 4 races over the summer making up the Worcestershire County Summer Mid Week Series.
The first event in May was a 10k multi terrain at Hagley which incorporated the MT Worcestershire County Championships followed in June by a 12k multi terrain at Arrow Valley, Redditch, then the Droitwich 10k in July and lastly the 5 mile multi terrain at Clent Hills, which was a 2 lap event and included mud and some testing hills.
The race was followed by a prize presentation at the Halesowen Athletic and Cycling Club. From Malvern Joggers, first FV50 in the race series was Alison Priest and 2nd in the same age category was Julie Caseley.
Also presented were Worcestershire County Championship medals from the Hagley 10k MT terrain event with Julie Caseley (FV50) winning gold and Alison Priest (FV50) silver. Ian Walwyn in the MV60 age category won silver. Julie Caseley also won a gold medal in the FV50 category from the County Half Marathon Championships held at Droitwich in March.

11 members of Malvern Joggers travelled to Stourbridge for the Stourbridge Stumble 10k, starting and finishing at the bandstand in Mary Stevens Park. The undulating and partly muddy route followed an out and back pan handle course to the south west of Stourbridge offering fine scenery, varied off-road trails and a friendly atmosphere.
Nic Dauncey led the Joggers home in this Club Champions League event in a time of 41:57 followed by Ben Toon (46:12), Mark Hartland (49:56), Steve Roode (50:49), Jason Protheroe (53:08), Alison Priest (53:11), Julie Caseley (56:02), Ian Probert (56:06), Rhian Protheroe (56:38), Mike Bolton (57:31) and Vivien Tolley (1:01:57).
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).
