It was all about parkruns for Cirencester AC runners last weekend with two victories and races on either side of the world. Foremost among the events was the inaugural Cirencester parkrun which took place in the grounds of Cirencester Agriculture University. After several weeks of hard work Cirencester AC’s David Lattimore and a large team of helpers from various sources ensured a successful debut despite wet conditions.


The event’s success was capped by victory for Cirencester’s Oliver Pritchard who crossed the line together with Cheltenham’s Andy Gardiner. Not far behind in fourth place were Simon Campbell and promising junior Oliver Middleton in 4th and 17th places. Other Cirencester finishers towards the head of the 208 runners were Steve Derrick, George Masser, who was the winner of the 11 to 14 age category, and Anna Wootton.


Cirencester’s second victory of the day came at Swindon where Isaac McAdam repeated his win of the previous week improving his time by four seconds and crossing the line nearly half a minute ahead of any opposition. Martin Croucher was a very commendable ninth with Adam McAdam and Barbara Thomas both in the top half of the 436 finishers.


Elsewhere in the UK Ruth Fulford was at Gloucester while Nick Holliday and Caroline Cotterell ran at Bognor Regis. Proving that racing doesn’t stop because you are on holiday in the Australian sunshine Rupert Chesmore and Liza Darroch flew the Cirencester colours in a lakeside 5k race in Canberra.

The  success of Cirencester AC’s runners for many years to come was clearly shown at last Saturday’s Swindon parkrun. Isaac McAdam had an exceptional race to storm home for victory in the personal best time of 17m30s. Equally encouraging was the performance of three of the club’s junior members, running at Swindon for the first time. They were led by Oliver Middleton in 25th place, closely followed by Sam Cook and Tom Prosser who finished in the top 30 out of a field of nearly 500. Also finishing in the top half were regular parkrun competitors David Moss, Alan McAdam and Barbara Thomas.


Isaac McAdam’s brother Jacob was not to be outshone as he competed down the M4 at Slough where he finished second out of over 600 runners. Upholding the senior honours was Ian Barrett who was second at Burnham-on-Sea.


Parkrun results –

At the Aviator 10 miler, based at Staverton airfield and run along the lanes to the east of Gloucester Robbie Brown led home a trio of Cirencester finishers in 21st place in a time of 1h2m47s. Next was Karen Higuera who set a new FV50 age category club record of 1h17.19s followed by Barbara Thomas in her second race of the weekend in 1h39.36s.


Martin Neill and Jill Hadland took on the muddy challenges of the Slaughterford 9 multi-terrain race near Corsham. Undaunted by the heavy going and the vicious hill near the end they both finished strongly in 58th for Martin in 1h11m40s and 103rd for Jill 1n 1h18m32s. James Widdowson travelled to Longleat Safari Park for the popular 10k race where he finished 122nd out of over 1100 runners in 47m30s.

Cirencester Athletics Club had its strongest performance for many years at last weekend’s Gloucestershire Cross Country  Championships. The club won two individual and a team gold medal in the junior races and narrowly missed out on  a team gold in the senior men’s race.


The first victory came in the under 11 boys race when Henry Sheffield came home well clear of the opposition in 7m52s. Next for the club were Tom Williams and Zac Humphries which was enough to secure a team gold medal. Ollie Campbell showed his class in the under 15 boys race to win in 18m33s.


Full Cirencester results in the junior races were –

Under 11 Girls  - 7. Khaya Swaine 9m36s, 10. Caitlin Watson 9.38.

Under 11 boys – 1. Henry Sheffield 7.52, 12.Tom Williams 9.04, 15. Zac Humphries 9.08, 18. Sebastian Forrest 9.23.

Under 13 Boys – 17. Andrew Woods 14.41s

Under 15 Boys – 1. Ollie Campbell 18.33, 11. Sam Cook 22.49.


The club’s younger runners had a major impact on the senior men’s race with Luke Campbell and Isaac McAdam finishing in the top 10.  The hilly Wootton-under-edge course provided a close battle between the favourites Cheltenham Harriers and Cirencester who had rarely featured in previous years. But this time things were different with club champion Dave Dell leading the team to cross the finish line in second place closely followed by Luke and Isaac and club captain James Thomas. Just outside the top ten was Adrian Williams, making a return to cross country running. One more top twenty finisher would have won the team a gold medal but a silver was an excellent result.

The ladies race was also well supported by the club with Liz Thomas leading the team.


Full Cirencester results from the senior races were –

Men – 2. Dave Bell 32m36s, 4.Luke Campbell 33.28, 5. Isaac McAdam 33.39, 9.James Thomas 34.15, 11. Adrian Williams 34.48, 79. Tim Ingham 45.42, 90. Dorian Matts 47.13.

Ladies – 30. Liz Thomas 33m14s, 36. Barbara Thomas 37.21, 38. Pam Wheeler 37.53, 41. Helen Manners 39.25, 42. Ruth Fulford 40.56.


The long distance Cirencester runners chose the Naunton 19 multi-terrain race for their weekend’s racing. On a cold but sunny morning just over a hundred runners enjoyed glorious North Cotswold scenery in this challenging race. First home for the club was Richard Hurdle who finished 9th in 2h31m13s, followed by Jill Hadland 33rd in 2.48m30s and Liza Darroch and Rupert Chesmore who ran together in their last race before an extended holiday on the other side of the world.


The previous Sunday saw two of the club’s leading runners return to racing after long periods of injury and family commitments in the Gloucester New Year’s Eve 10 mile race. Despite their absence from racing Bill Leggate and Chris Illman did well to finish in the top ten in under an hour, ably supported by three of the club’s ladies. Their results were –

7. Bill legate 58m46s, 8. Chris Illman 59.19, 87. Alexis Shea 1h16.46, 236.Rachel Barber 1.33.54, 261. Barbara Thomas 1.38.18.


As many of the club’s younger runners concentrated on the county cross country championships the weekly parkruns were contested by several of the senior members. First finisher at Swindon was Martin Croucher who again broke the 20 minute barrier to finish 11th in 19m20s. He was followed by David Moss 47th 21.53, 50. Gordon Jones 22.50, 90.Croline Cotterell 23.20, 130. Alan McAdam 24.31 and Sharon O’Keefe 29.29.



Best parkrun results came at Taunton where Ian Barrett scored a victory finishing ahead of 340 runners in 18m06sc and Slough where Jacob McAdam was fourth in 17m50s in a field of over 700.

While most members of Cirencester AC were taking a rest from competitive running over the festive period the keen rivalry between the younger members of the Campbell and McAdam families continued over three 5k park runs.




Honours went Ollie Campbell at Swindon and Chippenham at Christmas, narrowly edging out Jacob McAdam on each occasion but Jacob had his revenge five days later at Swindon. In the first encounter Ollie, Jacob and their brothers Luke Campbell and Isaac McAdam finished together in 19m03s for 10th to 13th places. Although times were a little slower at Chippenham on Christmas Day the result was the same but Jacob McAdam was the clear winner at Swindon last Saturday finishing fourth in 18m49s, nearly half a minute ahead of Ollie Campbell who was however only one place behind and four places ahead of Isaac McAdam.




Aside from the Campbell- McAdam duels Martin Croucher stepped down in distance to dip under the 20 minute mark at Swindon and Simon Campbell enjoyed a shorter race than normal to finish inside the top 100 at the second Swindon race. Supporting the younger members of the McAdam family was Alan McAdam who completed all three races in a consistent 25 minutes.


Full Swindon and Chippenham park run results for Cirencester runners were –


Swindon (23 December) – 10. Ollie Campbell 19m02s, 11.Jacob McAdam 19.02, 12.Luke Campbell 19.03, 13.Isaac McAdam 19.02, 19.Martin Croucher 19.36, 134. David Moss 24.11, 185.Alan McAdam 25.40, 222. Ella Shaftoe 26.59, 237. Barbara Thomas 27.41.

Elsewhere David Lattimore returned from French park runs to finish 59th at Stonehouse in 33m37s and Ian Barrett enjoyed warmer climes in Torbay where he crossed the line in 17m57s for 3rd place. But going even better was Oliver Pritchard who won at Horsham in an excellent 17m38s.




Away from park runs three Cirencester members joined over 500 runners in the re-scheduled Westonbirt Christmas Cracker 10k run in the grounds of Westonbirt School and along nearby country roads. The original race had to be cancelled due to the heavy snowfall on the eve of the race but last Saturday runners had to contend with strong winds instead. However the conditions did not deter Nick Holliday who established himself as one of the club’s strongest veteran runners winning the over 60 age category finishing 20th overall in 43m40s. Not far behind was Steve Derrick 44th in 46m15s with Caroline Cotterell putting in another strong run finishing 68th in 48m24s.
