Track Development – Progress in Pictures

You will have seen that our Track will be unavailable to train on as it undergoes a full refurbishment from March 13th. Work has actually already started with the lighting in and around the athletics track. We expect the work to happen over a 12 week period so should be complete by the end of May, if not sooner!

Race Result

Chris Fothergill was back in action this week, this time at the midweek race, the Cummins 5km which was race 3 of the series. It was a Harrier 1-2 as Chris Fothergill took the win with Colin Taylor in 2nd place. Matthew Foster finished 5th, Stephen Dent 13th and Barry Foster 16th on the night.

Thursday saw the return of the popular NYMAC relays, and it was great to see the club have some teams competing there. The relay is 1 mile and each team consists of 4 runners. The course has a quick downhill section start the runners off before levelling off for around three quarters of the lap before a long drag back up to the finish with a naughty kick right before you get to cross the line to really test the legs. Some fantastic performances including winning teams of Zara Jones, Savannah Tarn, Freya Talman and Macy Kelly who were first Female Open Team home and our F160 ladies team of Amy Pickworth, Beccy Forest, Bernadette Caygill and Louise Talman. Some impressive running from our Junior runners Dylan Wilson, Matthew Foster, Aidan Colmer and Rowan Steel to finish 6th just edging out Michael Harcourt, juniors Freddie Hall and Owen Ovens along with James Carberry into 7th by 6 seconds and our 200team of John Clifford, Paul Gilsenan, Jeff Miller and Colin Taylor who finished 3rd. Impressive runs from Adam Harker, Nathan Price, Karl Hume and Liam Reekie as our only other Open Mens team to finish 24th while our mixed teams both competed well in their categories to finish 15th (Phil Doonan, Catherine Anderson, Linda Noble and Sue Phillips) and 18th (Brian Thompson, Sarah Patterson, Iain Girard, Joanne Chapman). Tremendous! Special mention to Jade Hutchinson for organising the teams for the evening!

Another race to take place at the weekend was the up and down Northallerton 10k race, a race where our current Prime Minister made an appearance. Shaun Marshall was first of the club runners to finish crossing the line in 36:50 with Colin Taylor not too far behind in 37:35 for 3rd V45. Nathan Price broke 40mins for the first time…just but 39:59 he will take every day of the week. Liam Reekie not listed as a Harrier finished in 41:37 while Stephen Gardner ducked under the 50minute marker with a 49:42, Joanne Chapman finishing in 56:04. Iain Girard took a stop at 8km to help a runner who had took a tumble sacrificing his own race. Well done Iain and well done to all of our runners.

Mark Milner was in Hardmoors action again this weekend, this time the 110m race. I’m not sure I can come up with any more superlatives to describe Mark and his incredible efforts over these huge distances. Starting in Scarborough and heading to checkpoints in Ravenscar, Hornblower, Runswick Bay, Saltburn, Roseberry Topping, Kildale, Clay Bank, Scarth Nick, White Horse (carpark) before finishing in Helmsley. I’m still trying to get my head around completing a marathon and having the thought that I still would have 84miles to go….Mark, who is such an experienced competitor at these events completed the trek in 46th place in 34 hours, 22minutes and 40seconds. Huge respect to you Mark. Full results can be found here

Iain McCulloch was in action North of the border at the Kirkcudbright half marathon as part of a field of 118 runners. This undulating run keeps runners on their toes but Iain coped with ease, completing the course in 1hr 26.43 only 10 seconds behind the eventual winner. Great work Iain. Full results can be found here. Iain pictured here with Patrick who ran in the junior race.

Sarah Neve was our lone wolf at the Edinburgh marathon this weekend running the distance for the first time. Marathons are physically and mentally tough no matter what pace they are ran at and i’m sure Sarah was feeling the aches and pains over the following few days after a huge effort, completing the race in 5hours 56 and 15 seconds. Tremendous effort Sarah, you should be extremely proud of yourself. Full results can be found here

At Raby Castle we had two separate races on the undulating course with a choice of 5 and 10km’s on offer. In the 5km race Matthew Foster was first of the club runners to finish crossing in 4th place in 21:12 with Robert Austin 23rd and 1st V65 in 27:07. Not to be outdone Shirley Gibson was 31st and 1st F75 in a time of 30:01.

In the 10km race it was Justin Hindmarch first home in 48:08 with Stephen Dent 90th in 52:47. A tough 10km race for even the seasoned runner with some tough climbs. Full results for the 10km can be found here

Janet and Tony Williams were in action in Keswick this weekend at the Wild Deer events, Whinlatter Forest Trail 10km race. Running the course together the pair crossed the finish line in 1hr 24 and 37 seconds. Well done both of you. Full results can be found here

Lee Johnson was competing on his own home soil over the weekend at The Transylvania 20k race which is viewed as being “of medium difficulty”, with steep ascents and descents on all types of roads and paths, with an altitude gain of 1230 m and a distance of 22 km.

Lee finished this in 2hrs 15 and 49 secs for 3rd place overall and 2nd in his age category. Full results for the race can be found here
