What a great day - all the hard work paid off! It's days like today when you really appreciate what being a member of our great club means. We should also thank the many other people 'associated with the club by family ties or friendship. Without the kind assistance of John Brookes for the use of the event field and the generous sponsorship of Richard Smith 's company "mte" and our other supporters we would not have been able to put on this great event.

 

The first winner over the new course was Jason Cherriman of Leeds City AC in a time of 1:12:04 - setting the course record! 2nd was our own Terry Forrest who again started at the back of the field. Terry's time of 1:14:47 sets the target for other members to beat. 3rd place went to Christopher Ward of Wakefield District Harriers in a time of 1:18:08,

The 1st lady home was Sarah Cumber of Halifax Harriers AC (1:25:23), 2nd Bridget Coomber of Denby Dale Travellers (1:27:22) and 3rd place to Clare Howard of Totley AC (1:31:19). Becci Winter was our first lady home (5th overall) in 1:37:53. Martyn Stearn was the first M60.

 

The course, coupled with the increasing strength of the wind didn't necessarily make it a pb morning ,,, but it was for a couple of members - Tim Ashby (1;36:46), Amanda Wilson (2:04:49). What do they have in common? answer - marathon training! Two of our newer members were having their first run at the distance and performed exceptionally well - Amy Scorah (1:54:26) and Julie Baker (2:25:01).

A Marathon Weekend to Remember!

MANCHESTER MARATHON:

  • 22 finishers - 11 running their first  26.2m in fantastic times

  • 10 of the 11 'seasoned' marathoners achieved massive pbs (would have been 11/11 if Gail Wrangles hadn't had injuries in the weeks before)

  • 6 runners in the 2 person relay

  • New half marathon pbs for Gemma Guy and Emma Smith

  • Superb support team

  • Brill social weekend with food and drink added in!

Tough luck on Diane Widdowson and Adrian Byrom who were sidelined before the race and Tim Owen who had to limp out.

 

HUDDERSFIELD MARATHON

  • 1st place to Terry Forrest on what is reputedly a very tough course (and he started at the back as usual!

 

DRURIDGE BAY MARATHON

  • Roy Young completes his 95th Marathon - his 100th is scheduled to be in October at Mablethorpe (4 more to do between now and then - crazy!)

Meal at Ash's Tue 28 Apr

Many thanks to Simon Newton for arranging an excellent social evening meal and to the many members who turned out. We need to do more of this!

Barnsley parkrun Sat 25 Apr

18 took on the challenge of Locke Park in Barnsley for the first of our 4 GP parkruns. Its a 3 lap course with ups and downs! Despite that there were 3 year best times - for Roy Simpson, Stewart Haigh and Jeff Denton. Ian Richardson was our quickest in a time of 19:48 with Becci Winter second in 20:53. We did hope for a larger turnout but London and Manchester marathons may have taken their toll. Those who did turn out were happy with their points tally!

 

 

 

London Marathon: 26 Apr

Another superb marathon weekend for club members - with 5 of the 11 achieving pbs. Simon Newton was our 1st home in a super time of 2:38:09 - just a couple of minutes behind Paula Radcliffe! He in turn was a couple of minutes ahead of Terry Forrest who can probably claim to have passed more  runners than Simon! Andrew Mascarenhas must be extremely pleased to have knocked over 10 mins off his pb in achieving a time of 3:09:42. Others who smashed their pbs were David Fitzgerald (3;44:16), Richard Smart (3:49:29), Lee Hopkins (4:08:29) and Lindsay Pinder (5:00:49). Brilliant first marathon for Sarah Vause who finished in 4:30:09 and raised lots for her charity. Gail Wrangles ran her second marathon in 8 days  and again a pretty decent time considering her long lay-off. Well done also to Nicola Henshaw who has trained superbly to regain much of her form. Julie Morgan was our first lady finisher in 3:46:30.
