We’d like to say a hearty congrats to the upstanding Captain Samuel Morley and Steve Shaw of Nottinghamshire, who both signed up for events in the recent Spring Run in Ho Chi Minh City last weekend.
Sam came home in just over 47 minutes to finish 16th in the 10km run from of a field of 100+ runners. With a time of 1 hr 19 mins, Steve finished 33rd from a field of nearly 100 runners in the 21km run. None too shabby boys!
Certainly, streets ahead of Ben Peadon and Ian Pavitt, both of whom also signed up for the 10km run but failed to show at the starting line.
Mr. Pavitt took to Twitter to defend himself from accusations of “laziness” claiming he’d been kidnapped on Saturday night and woke up somewhere near the Cambodian border. Mr. Peadon’s personal assistant claims the chairman overdid it on the Weetabix and pulled out of the race before leaving his apartment due to a stomach cramp.
Needless to say, they’re both going to be fined by the club for tarnishing our reputation.
