After a busy year of racing, most Titans are currently enjoying a lighter training load and quieter race schedule. However news of “the off-season” doesn’t seem to have reached everyone yet with a hardy few still racing well into the winter months!
It great to hear what everyone in the club has been up to race-wise, so to ensure your results are included in the next update don’t forget to post details in the Titan Member’s Facebook Group or message Ryan directly.
Nottingham Christmas Marathon – Saturday 1st December 2018
A marathon in December, in the UK is a tough proposition and during the 8 and bit laps of the lake at Holme Pierrepont there was no escape from the punishing headwinds. Despite these challenging conditions Ron fought through to the very end to post an incredible marathon time.
Ron Mahoney:- 3:09:21 – 21st overall & 3rd in age category!
Nottingham Christmas Half Marathon – Sunday 2nd December 2018
A Festive 2 Days of Running around the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham. This Flat Road Lap route around Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham is an excellent pre-Christmas leg stretcher.
Martin Elks – 2:11:07
Dark Peaks Trail 14 – Run – Saturday 1st December 2018
A challenging 14 miles across some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park, made even more difficult by the December wind and rain. Navigational skills were essential as the runners worked their way up tough gritty climbs and down spectacular technical descents in the heart of the Derwent Valley. Stuart & Chris battled through to the finish of this tough trial race and ended up crossing the line together, sharing joint 24th place.
Stuart Mann – 2:48:52
Chris Stilgoe – 2:49:02
Rother Valley Running Festival – 10k Run – Sunday 18th November 2018

Centurion GP – 5 Mile Run – Sunday 4th November 2018
The first race in the winter grand prix series held by Centurion RC. These are well run local events and a great way to keep the legs turning over the winter. There are still 4 more races left in the series which runs until April 2019 so it would great to see some more Titans at future events.
Richard Buchanan – 40:12
