Race Report 22 September

Three times a year the club holds a Handicap, this year virtual, of course.   Members are handicapped in times based on monthly time trials, which have been calculated by Duncan Fothergill, and their finishing times take this handicap into account.  David Baker, coming back from injury, was the winner of the Summer shield this year, completing the 2 miles in 14.05 minutes on the night, self timed, of course.  The ever improving Bev Davies, who also has had a tough few months with injury, took 20.32, a PB, with Wendy Bennett 3rd taking 22.50.  Several members did PBs and Season’s Bests, which running on the lovely new track at Sowerby Gateway gives opportunities for.  In normal times, the running would be followed by a communal supper, sociables and presentations, but this year, members had to just go home and get their usual supper!  No doubt the victory was just as sweet for David.
 
Anyone thinking of joining this friendly but competitive club should look at the club’s website for information, and they would be warmly welcomed to the socially distanced sessions held twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Hello club members and friends of the Thirsk 10 road race. We would just like to provide a brief update to inform everybody that for obvious reasons the Thirsk 10 race will not be held in March 2021 however, we intend to reassess the situation in the Spring with a view to holding the event later in the year subject to national and local restrictions in place at the time. We apologise for the disappointment this will undoubtably cause, however I am sure that everybody appreciates that the Covid 19 Pandemic is a fluid situation with rules and restrictions seemingly changing on a daily basis. We will provide a further update in once we have been able to consider matters. Assuring you of our best intentions at all times, keep running and stay safe. The Thirsk 10 Team.
