On Saturdaymorning a small number of Harriers headed over to Osmotherley to take on the Lyke Wake Challenge, an approximate 42 mile run, walk, hike in full kit finishing in Ravenscar.
Now you see the likes of Mark Milner pictured far right, Matt Capsey, Mike King, Peter Foulds, Darren Gee and Heather Ford completing these challenges week on week..some over 100 miles but until you’ve actually attempted something like this you can’t truly appreciate how tough these actually are. Speaking from personal experience, 24 miles was bad enough before I retired with the England match to keep me company on Sky go!
In temperatures rising to nearly 30 degrees, carrying kit (including a waterproof jacket) Steve Wilkinson, Linda Noble, Dave McKenna and Mark Milner finished the course with Dave first to finish in a little over 8 hours despite waiting for his colleagues to make sure they got round safely.
Respect to you all!
