It Gets Sultry At Cock Howe And Beyond

The Cock Howe and beyond Fell Race, race8 in the summer series,attracted a field of 78 runners, of which 3 were Thirsk and Sowerby members, tackling the race which begins with a very steep climb.  It was a sultry evening with constant refreshing rain and Lorraine Hiles finished 48th, and 2nd F45, in 59.50  with Alan Wikeley 68th, and 2nd M65, in 69.37 and  Fran Jeffery 70th in 70.03.
Noel Clough and Pete Wilkin competed in the recent Hawkswick Dash Fell Race, over a very steep and short 1.2 mile course, with Noel coming 23rd in 14.07 and Pete 27th, and 1st M50, in 14.50.  Another of their outings was to the Duddon Valley in the Lake District at Seathwaite over 18 miles, which involved 7000 feet of climb including several summits. This was followed by a plunge to The Three Shires Stones and more climbs before a dash back to Seathwaite, theoretically!  The weather was fine to start with, but part way through the race, a clag came down, and both runners went off course following an error off a summit, and instead of finishing about 35th, they ended up in the 60’s out of a field of about 100.
Graham Robinson had no such problems at the Victorian 10k at Saltburn and had another excellent run to finish 45th out of 178 in a time of 42.10.
Ian and Marian Codling had their annual trip to the Idle Trail Race,a lovely run of about 6.4 miles, partly along the Leeds Liverpool Canal towpath before taking off into the countryside with plenty of undulations!  Ian was 226th in 69.01 and Marian 243rd in 77.16.

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.
