Race Report 20/04/21

The track at Sowerby supplied an excellent substitute for the virtual East Coats 5k, in that it is flat with laps, and allows for fast times – no view of the sea, though!  There were 103 finishers, including about half a dozen guests, which demonstrates the popularity of both the course and the virtual series of races, and many runners had PBs.  Matt Jones once again produced the fastest time, 17.25 – not bad for 5k – with Andrew Price close in 17.29 and getting back into form Tom Levi 3rd in 17.30.  4th came Paul Peacock in 18.05, new member, Danny Tudhope 5th in 19.18, David Fawkes 6th in 19.21, Josh Cooper 7th in 19.42, Paul Chapman 8th in 20.06, Walter Busuttil 9th in 20.23 and Alan Simpson 10th in 20.29.
The ladies had some quick times too, with Sarah Yeomans just separating the last two men to finish in 20.29 and Trudy Morrice right up there, 2nd lady, in 20.44.  3rd was Gemma Tutty in 21.02, 4th Lyndsey Collins in 21.55, 5th Kirsty Naylor in 22.53, 6th Hilary Coventry in 23.32, 7th Sonja van der Westhuisen in 23.58, 8th Clare Tempest in 24.28, 9th Tracey Lowther in 25.03 and 10th Sarah Harrison in 25.29.  
Among these 20 names is a clutch of good new members.  What a pity the Harrogate League is not in operation this year!
