Race Report 31/10/17

The wild winds of the previous night didn’t augur well for the 10k road race at Wistow, and so it proved.  The flat, open course lends itself to fast times, and most people were pleased with their times, but were definitely affected by the wind.  Chris Wordsworth was first club finisher out of the field of 255, coming 174th in 55.58, Liz Wordsworth 191st in 58.38, Alison Butcher 192nd in 58.46, Ian Codling 240th in 60.02 and Marian Codling 255th in 76.07, both the latter two doing their best times for more than a year!

Another large field of 442 were at Fountains Abbey the previous day for the Park Run, Lorraine Hiles finishing 63rd in 22.25, the astonishing Ian Crane 68th in yet another PB 22.40, Alan Pollock 104th in 23.58, Martin Cummins 132nd in 25.05, Linda Bamforth 290th in 30.50, Steve Isaac 298th in 31.20, Gillian Crane 313th in 41.45, given the same time as Paul Adams, Ian Codling 368th in 34.20, Jane Cummins 369th in 34.24, Liz Stephenson 395th in 37.09 and Marian Codling 399th in 37.52.  Phillip Craig was 42nd out of 94 at Northallerton in 27.57.  Ken Evitt was at Darlington South Park again with his 8 year old  granddaughter, Leah.  Ken was 267th out of 281 in 39.19 and both he and Leah did PBs!  At the Milton Keynes event, Andrea Almack came 190th out of 452 in 27.29.
