Race Report w/c 15/09/18

The second event in the NYSD cross country season was hosted at Acklam by Middlesbrough and Cleveland Harriers on a persistently cold and wet day. This did not seem to affect Club Captain, Olivia Mulligan, who had a superb run to finish 1st Senior Lady in 21.57. Jill Libby came 71st out of 109 in 30.02 and Christine Burn 99th in 34.36. Men over 65 ran with the ladies, and Rob Burn was 1st M65 in 23.52, with Ken Evitt 4th in 31.17. Geoff Bullock was 1st M70 in 28.23. Senior men had to run twice the distance, and Joshua Fothergill was once again in fine form, coming a very good 24th out of 190 in 38.43. Stephan Tomaszewski finished 81st in 43.02, Mike Cropper 117th in 45.35, Martyn Coy 123rd in 46.14, David Tervit 159th in 50.32, Duncan Fothergill 171st in 52.48 and Richard Easby 190th in 75.18.

Several other races were happening that day, all in pouring rain, and Lorraine Hiles coped admirably to complete the Yorkshire Marathon in 4.11.18.

The weather was no better in Slough for Howard Cross at the Slough Half Marathon, and he finished a very good 42nd in 1.36. Those who know Richmond know they can expect a hilly course for the Richmond Castle 10k.
