Achievements

(Posted 10 Oct)

The running community has a proud record of helping fellow runners. This was demonstrated in the best form when two of our members took leading roles in going to the assistance of a participant who sufferered a heart attack in the Pontefract Half Marathon. Kirsty Shepherd was fortunately in the right place at the right time as a spectator and Tom Camponi was running alongside him. Fortunately Kirsty is a nurse and with the help of Tom and others they were able to carry out CPR until an ambulance arrived. The outcome was the guy has survived and recovering well.

 

Message from Ron Needham  - race referee and UKA's Adjudicator:

" As you may know, one participant collapsed with a suspected cardiac arrest. He’s apparently now on the road to recovery, thanks largely to the actions of a couple of bystanders and a fellow runner who dropped out of the race to help with life saving CPR. I believe the runner is called Tom Camponi. I spoke with him momentarily after the event and I’m pretty sure he was wearing an Ackworth vest. If he is an Ackworth member, and if you know him, I’d be very grateful if you could pass on to him my personal thanks as the UKA official at the event, for his prompt and unselfish actions in going to the aid of a fellow runner. The club should be very proud of him. Best Wishes, Ron

Autumn Handicap 5m 11 Sept (Posted 12 Sep)

Bit of a hiccup with the results due to several starting in the early wave instead of the mass start - but hopefully all now resolved!

It was a tight finish with just 32 seconds separating the top 5. The winner by just 2 seconds was .... Emma Aldred who has just transferred to us as a First Claim member - a great way to celebrate. 2nd was Sarah Boylen (Bailey) and 3rd Emma Evans, just 8 seconds behind Emma. The winner of the 1st male was Ron Dyson who was 2:21 under handicap time.

In total, 45 of the 103 runners equalled or bettered their handicap time.

Age Graded Awards

(Posted 3 Oct)

For the benefit of newer members - Age Graded Awards are presented to members who complete a 10k, 10m and half marathon race in the calendar year. Any organised race counts. There are 7 levels of awards based on the average age performance factor (%) achieved over your best results for the 3 distances. These are calculated using tables produced by World Masters Athletics and generally used in the sport. You can see your WVA score on parkrun results and other races. These are calculated on your age and gender. Whereas these use full years eg 37, we calculate your age on race day to 2 decimal points  eg 37.46 to produce more accurate results.

So far, 98 members have qualified for awards - which are presented at our Awards Night in February. There's still time to qualify or achieve a higher level award. You can check your stats HERE
