The second fixture of the HDSRL took place on Tuesday at Harrogate, with 322 runners completing the testing (especially for those who had done the Ripon 10 just a couple of days before) course!
Stephan Tomaszewski, getting back to the top of his form, led club members home in 35th place in a time of 38.00, Matt Jones, improving with every run, 100th in 42.52, Graham Robinson – ever consistent – 127th in 44.16, Paul Goacher 185th in 48.19, Helen Ashworth 193rd in 48.43, Hilary Coventry 203rd in 49.29, Fran Jeffery 210th in 49.40, Rebecca Hartley, in her first outing for the club, 213th in 49.51, Nicola Jenkins 214th in 49.52, Pat Kirby 238th in 51.12, Malcolm Aitken 271st in 54.12, Clare Goacher 309th in 60.09, Phillip Craig 317th in 64.00, doing well to complete the race following a hard fall near the start, just pipping Sarah Goacher, 318th in 64.04 and Ian Codling 322nd in 70.27. The usual excellent supper and sociables followed the race.
On Sunday, Steve Scott was the club’s sole representative at the lovely Raby Castle 10k and had a good run to come 184th out of a field of 346 in a time of 52.57. Other members did the Melmerby 10k but those results are not yet to hand.
