Fountains 10k & Gisborough Moors Fell Race

The annual Fountains 10k took place at the weekend, based on Fountains School at Grantley.  224 runners completed the testing course on a cold, windy day, and there were hills aplenty, plus some deep bogs if you didn’t quite hit the right line!  Matt Jones had an excellent run to finish 31st in 44.14, with Rob Lickley 50th in 46.17, Paul Goacher 123rd in 52.51,  Clare Goacher 184th in 60.40,  Sarah Goacher 213th in 66.36,  Ian Codling 220th in 73.26 and Marian Codling 223rd in 77.50.  The home made flapjack at the finish was much enjoyed by all runners!

The previous weekend, eight members took part in the long Gisborough Moors Fell Race on a fine morning for running.  New member, Ruth Caton, was first club finisher – what a promising acquisition – coming 74th in 118.39, Lorraine Hiles 85th in 121.29,  Nicola Booth 98th in 125.57, Chris Raw 109th in 127.57,  Hilary Coventry 133rd in 142.00, in a tight finish with Steve Booth, 134th in 142.01,  Fran jeffery 138th in 144.32 and Alan Wikeley 144th in 150.35.
