Marian’s Weekly Race Report – w/c 20/10/14

It was a fine, bright morning for the start of the Bridlington Half Marathon, Race 13 in the Club Championship series.  A gentle following wind to begin with left runners unprepared for the strong headwinds encountered over the final 3 miles of the race – over a course which was generally manageable.  Cameron Choules continued his good form to lead Harriers home in 21st place in 1.27.21, 2nd M45 finisher.  Stephan Tomaszewski, always competitive, came 33rd in 1.29.28,  Richard Harry 58th in a personal best 1.34.18,  Graham Robinson, in a team effort with Martyn Coy and Rob Lickley, 105th in 1.40.37,  Martyn Coy 106th in 1.40.48,  Rob lickley 107th in 1.41.36,  Marc Davies 183rd in 1.48.51,  Steven Scott 260th in 1.55.30,  Duncan Fothergill 302nd in 1.59.31,  Faith Coy, in her first ever half marathon, 361st in 2.05.14,  Elizabeth Wordsworth 396th in 2.07.57,  Christopher Wordsworth 432nd in 2.11.23, Ian Codling 515th in 2.38.01 and Marian Codling 530th in 2.52.55 – getting a prize for 1st in her age-group!
