Club Runner of the Month - March 2020 - Stuart Kelly

Congratulations to Stuart Kelly - ELR Club Runner of the Month for March 2020.





This month Stuart set two personal best times, bringing his total to three in 2020. At the Vitality 'Big Half' he improved on his previous best by under a minute to finish in a time of 1.17.32. The following weekend Stuart ran in the Hillingdon 20 mile race and completed the undulating 4 lap course in 2.06.55. This accomplishment saw him beat his time from 2019 by almost 5 minutes and placed him in 17th position out of 367 finishers. His other PB was at last month's Run Through Victoria Park 10k, where he recorded a time of 35.20. Stuart is an athlete of outstanding quality and continues to improve his race performances from 5k up to Marathon distance.

Club Runner of the Month - February 2020 - Antonio Martin Romero

Congratulations to Antonio Martin Romero - ELR Club Runner of the Month for February 2020.





Antonio returned to his Spanish homeland to run the Seville Marathon on 23rd February and beat the old club record he had set the previous year at Manchester. With split times of 1:12:20 and 1:13:04 he overcame breezy conditions to finish in 2:25:24 and smash the record by more that 2 minutes. At 10k into the race and finding that his pacing group was slowing down, Antonio decided to break away and run alone into the headwind to the end. His outstanding time earned him a very impressive 74th place in the race overall. Antonio says 'I would like to thank my London club, East London Runners for having followed my career and hope to run with the club soon when I am back in London.

This completed a record breaking double and great start to the year for Antonio.
He also competed in the Seville Half Marathon at the end of January and succeeded in beating his PB and old club record by over a minute, to finish in a time of 1:09:30.


Club Runner of the Month - January 2020 - Jose Rodriguez

Congratulations to Jose Rodriguez - ELR Club Runner of the Month for January 2020.





A tale of two stunning race performances from Jose as he completed his first Ultra and then the Benfleet 15, on consecutive weeks in January. Taking inspiration from other club members, he decided to enter the Country to Capital Ultra 43 Miles. Starting in Buckinghamshire and finishing in Little Venice, he quickly found himself amongst the leading group. Putting his navigation skills to test, he battled on through varied terrain including Britains oldest road - The Ridgeway and finally along a 20 mile stretch of the Grand Union Canal, to complete the race in a time of 5.30.45 and a podium 3rd place finish.
The following week at the Benfleet 15; despite losing his shoes in the mud, getting lost and having to run the last two miles in his socks, he still achieved a remarkable time of 1.43.15 (PB), to finish in 19th place. Jose has proved to be an outstanding athlete at all race distances and a true inspiration to all at East London Runners.
