Race Report w/c //

It was a momentous weekend for Josh Fothergill as he completed his 1000th mile of the year at the Fountains Abbey Park Run, finishing in a superb 2nd place out of 339 in 17.36. He had been raising funds for Wendy’s Wish to the memory of a favourite Godmother he lost to cancer several years ago.  Family members were there to support him and cheer him on, and his father, Duncan, came 67th in a very creditable 23.34.  Other club members were Mike Cropper, 26th in 20.50, Paul Bradford 75th in PB 23.54, Heather Bell 121st, also with PB of 25.23, Trish Radford 175th in 27.31, Ian Codling 318th in 38.11 and Marian Codling 327th in 39.48.  New member, Ellen Brookes, did her first parkrun at Northallerton and came 58th out of 66 in 34.05 and Peter Richardson at Darlington was 63rd out of 229 in 24.45.  Lorraine Hiles tried the Flatts Lane event and finished 15th out of 38, 3rd lady, in 26.20.
