What more beautiful place could you wish to run than at Preston Park near Yarm, on a lovely sunny November morning, and a large number of runners arrived to do just that.  The course, over grass and along woodland tracks, with a few ups and downs, was harder than it looked, and Jill Libby had a good run in the ladies’ race to come 89th out of 145 in 32.06, with Christine Burn 117th in 35.32, Liz Stephenson 143rd in 44.48 and Marian Codling 145th in 49.20.   The more senior men ran with the ladies, and Geoff Bullock took 30.25, Ken Evitt 32.09 and Ian Codling 45.57.In the senior men’s race, over a longer course, Josh Fothergill came 23rd out of 188 in 31.54, Ken Wood 56th in 33.55, Mick Cropper 113th in 37.37, Paul Atkinson 117th in 37.53, Andy Butcher 134th in 39.23, David Tervit 154th in 41.30, Craig Ivey 164th in 42.44 and Duncan Fothergill 167th in 43.05.
