Fountains Abbey park Run once again had a lorge field, 364, of which 7 were Thirsk and Sowerby members.   It was good to see Matt jones out again, 38th in a very creditable 21.34.  Martin Cummins came 201st in 29.32, accompanied by Ian Crane, 202nd in 29.35.  Gillian Crane was 250th in 31.34, Steve Isaac 271st in 33.14, Jane Cummins 280th in 33.56 and Liz Stephenson 309th in 35.55.  

At Northallerton, Paul Bradford was 13th out of 76 in 24.47 and Phillip Craig 52nd in 31.10.  Peter Richardson was among the 170 runners at Catterick, finishing 34th in PB 23.35.  Later that same day, Ian and Marian Codling made the long trip to the Ravenstonedale 10k, a friendly, popular village race on roads, but definitely seriously undulating!  Out of 200+ runners, Ian took 81.15 and Marian 82.23.  Alan Simson was among the field of 125 at the Eskdale Eureka Fell Race the following day, race 4 in the Dave Parry Winter Series, coming 92nd in 106.00. 

Enthusiastic an innovative coach, Rob Burn, organised a club “Challenge”, with 60 or so members taking part in an evening session requiring head torches.  The challenge included clambering under nets, through ropes, various exercises and steep ups and downs, culminating with a run up the steps to the top of the White Horse and back down.  A warming bowl of soup awaited everyone at the end.
