Wild Time At York

Wild and windy weather at the weekend made life very difficult for the 1683 runners in the Brass Monkey Half Marathon based on York racecourse.  The course is flat but strong cross winds meant it was hard to achieve a good time.  Steve Middleton was the first Harrier to finish, coming 45th in a very commendable 1.20.26.  Dan Holdsworth finished 126th in 1.26.06, with Paul Atkinson doing well to be about on his target time of 1.31.29.  Les Sutton-Haigh took 1.38.03,  Alison Calvert a very good 1.44.08,  Nik Sutton-Haigh well pleased with 1.50.48,  Alan Harman 1.51.11,  Judith Seaton 2.00.22,  Jo Fambely 2.04.13,  Chris Sykes 2.06.52,  Ian Codling 2.21.22,  Eileen Howell 2.23.20 and Marian Codling 2.44.46.
Harriers are focusing now on their Thirsk 10 Road Race, to be held this year on March 25th.  The race is based on Thirsk Racecourse staring at 11 am and there is also a Fun Run, totally off-road, beginning an hour earlier.
