Race Report 03/08

The latest virtual club championship race, the Kilburn 7.2, comprised elements of 2 previous courses so there was no danger of getting lost, and the tracks were mainly good going with testing ups and downs, as befits a “race ” at Kilburn!  Paul Peacock had his first win for the Harriers in a time of 46.38 with evergreen Stephan Tomaszewski 2nd in 47.39, just squeaking ahead of Matt Jones, 3rd in 47.41.  Another evergreen, Rob Burn, was 4th in 51.10 with David Fawkes 5th in 52.45, Mike Lowther 6th in 52.52, just ahead of Gary Wilkinson, 7th in 52.53.  Jack Fisher came 8th in 54.53, Rob Lickley 9th in 55.28 and Alan Simpson 10th in 55.44. 

The unbeatable Esther Harrison was again 1st finisher among the ladies, 4th overall in 50.31 with Lorraine Hiles 2nd, and 7th overall, in 51.57, Trudy Morrice 3rd, 12th overall, in 54.37, Rosie Gatenby 4th in 57.42, Clare Tempest 5th in 59.11, only a second in front of Kirsty Naylor, 6th in 59.12, Helen Ashworth 7th in 61.49, Faith Coy 8th in 66.05, Sarah Scott 9th in 66.08 and Sonja van der Westhuisen 10th in 66.13.  59 members and guests continued their enthusiasm for these virtual races, which could be done over 4 days.

Some disappointing but predictable news now – this year’s SESSAY SWIFT 6k, due to take place on August 19th, has had to to be cancelled along with thousands of others.  The decision was left as late as possible but there was really no alternative.  However, the course will be marked out as usual from Aug 12th, and you can have a freebie run round if you want to!  Be mindful of people who live in the village.
