Marian’s Weekly Race Report w/c 24/11/14

Dan Holdsworth once again showed his excellent form with a win at the weekly Fountains Abbey 5k Park Run in a time of 18.03, his first time in this race.  Greg MacDonald, also running well, finished 3rd out of 146 in 18.35 with Rob Lickley, another runner having his first go at a Park Run, 20th in 21.07,  Charlotte Wilton 28th in 21.59,  Steven Scott 32nd in 22.44,  Malcolm Aitken, slowly improving after a long injury, 64th in a personal best 25.32 and Gillian Crane 122nd in a personal best 32.02, gradually moving up the finishing order.  
Graham Robinson had his first outing at the Darligton Park Run finishing in a very good 20.35.  Joanne Richardson came 176th in 33.51, and she also is slowly getting back into some sort of form.  It was good to see Peter Richardson managing to complete the distance, his first outing for several months, coming 192nd in 43.06.  He will certainly improve on this!
Ian and Marian Codling travelled to Barnsley for the popular, rural Barnsley 10k, over a course which is definitely undulating, but allows for fast times.  Ian came 637th out of 747 in 64.48 and Marian was 691st in 72.13.
