PUDDLETOWN PLOD

Last Sunday (11/7/2021) saw club chairman Ben Renshaw doing what he does best, road racing, taking 3rd place at the Puddletown Plod half marathon with a new PB of 1:13:56, he did pick up the M40 age category win but we’re not sure he’ll want to advertise that fact.

Ben ran in the lead pack of 3 with Egdon Heath Harriers Ben Foyle (1st) and Matt Papa (2nd) until losing contention in the final mile, a valiant effort as Ben has yet to start training properly this year!
