Ann Marie McGlynn breaks own 10k Club Record

Congratulations to Ann Marie McGlynn for taking 5 seconds off her own 10km club record.  Ann Marie won the Hyde Park Spring 10k last Sunday 25th March in a record time of 33:50.  She was very pleased with her run after the snow changed her race plans the previous weekend.

Ann Marie was not only the first lady to cross the line but in a field of over 450 runners she also beat all the men too, winning by over half a minute.

TVH are delighted to have Ann Marie in such great form going into the upcoming national road relays and our big season on the track this summer.

Lorraine Ugen Sets New 100m Club Record

Lorraine Ugen has started the outdoor season in fantastic style by breaking her own 100m club record that she set last year when the senior women claimed the national league title in Bromley. Lorraine who was forced to cut short her indoor season due to injury had a run out over the 100m in Fort Worth, Texas USA where she ran a fast 11.37.

Lorraine was pleased with her run saying afterwards, “I was really happy with the run, I had to take time out from the indoor season after injury to rehab and refocus for the outdoor season. I wanted to get a decent speed session in and kind of see where I was at, and was happy to see that my speed was there post injury. I’m looking forward to moving forward with the outdoor season and working on continuing to stay injury free”.
