Marian’s Weekly Race Report – w/c 26/01/15

There were 13 Harrriers in support of Jane and Martin Cummins at the Fountains Abbey 5k Park Run on Sat when they completed their 100th parkrun – a magnificent achievement!  Well done.  Jane ran the course in a personal best time as well, 134th in 28.55.  Other results – Bryan Miller, getting faster and faster, 15th in a new PB 20.09,  Charlotte Wilton 32nd with another PB of 21.39,  Helen Ashworth, in her 1st parkrun, 54th in 23.10,  Martin Cummins – 100 PRs – 59th in 23.18,  Stuart Waters, first timer, 60th in 23.21,  Sonja Van Der Westhuisen 63rd in 23.52,  Clare Gillan, improving with every outing, 68th in a new PB 24.40,  Paul Van Der Westhuisen 95th in 26.49,  Christine Burn 129th in 28.41,  Brian Smith 153rd in 30.15,  Gillian Crane 174th in 32.26 and Drikus Van Der Westhuisen 186th in 33.50.  At Darlington, Steve Middleton came a superb 2nd in 18.15 and Peter Richardson was 105th in 24.56.  Alan Harman was at the much harder Ferriby 10 Mile Race, where cold wind was a factor for the first half and there are plenty of hills throughout the course.  In his first race for 10 weeks following illness, he came 393rd out of 720 in 1.24.02.

Time to get your entries in for the Thirsk 10 Mile Road Race on Mar 22nd, incorporating a wheelchair race and separate off road 1.5 mile Fun Run.  See details on the club website.
