Grand Prix Update

(Posted 6 Dec)

The first event of the 2016/17 season is on 27 November at Temple Newsam. This does however clash with the Barnsley 10k - a Grand Prix event. There is nothing we can do about this so its down to individual choice. Other dates are 18 December, 22 January, 19 February and 5th March.

Monsal Trail Half Marathon 26 Mar

(Posted 7 Nov)

A brand new half marathon from the guys who run the Tissington Half. A similar run along a disused railway line but its out and back and through tunnels! Sets off from Bakewell to Monsal Head (towards Buxton) and back. The club have secured an allocation of 70 places at a discounted entry of £17. We can look at putting on a coach. If you're interested please let Stewart know asap.

The timing fits in well for most Spring Marathon training schedules - but remember it is on Mother's Day!

Brighton Marathon 9 April 2017

(Posted 21 Nov)

6 club places now all gone - Mel and Tim Owen, Jeff Denton, Gemma Lund, Sam Sherburn and Sue Eaton.

All tables now updated:

In League 1 the top 3 are confirmed as Simon Newton, Becci Winter and Rich Ritucci.

The odds are that the current top 3 in League 2 - Martyn Stearn, Paul Lawrence and Will Walker will finish in that order BUT mathematically Paul and Will can improve their scores at the last event - Peco #2 at Middleton Park on the 18 December.

"They think its all over" at the top of League 3 and it will be unless Paul Zywicki finishes 2 places ahead of the winner he won't be able to overtake Andrew Nuut at the top. Jeff Denton could catch 3rd placed Amie Gowing but needs a similar miracle to Paul.

Dave Cooper as had the League 4 title in his hands for some time - unluckily for the rest his injury came late in the season! Good to see him back racing though and hopefully on the road to full recovery. "nd placed Sue Eaton has a 2.5 points lead over Caroline Copeland - it goes down to the last event to see ho gets 2nd. Both are assured of trophies.

With Becci Winter and Emma Evans assured of 1st and 2nd respectively in the Ladies League the battle for 3rd spot couldn't be tighter - its all down to the last Peco. Currently in 3rd place is Donna Bailey, just one point ahead of 4th placed Julie Stafford and 2 ahead of Liane Warren. Can Julie build on her 10k pb at Edwinstowe? Will Liane's constitution hold up? Should be worth turning out to see what happens.

Martyn Stearn's trop to the Barbados Marathon cost him the chance of catching Simon Bennet who is now the Male vets League winner with Martyn 2nd and Mick Knowles 3rd.

The Ladies Vets league is now finalised. Gail Tombs and Julie Stafford already had the 1/2 spots but Liane Warren has overtaken Sue Knowles to clinch 3rd place.

 

It will all be over before Christmas and the trophies can be ordered for our Awards Night in February - have you got your ticket yet?

Training 22 Nov

Many thanks to the members who turned out for the NT photoshoot - hopefully all will appear in the publicity material.

 

35-40 (not sure how many because it was dark and blinded by the headtorches) enjoyed a club run with a difference - running around the paths and trails of Nostell parkland. Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone - another run is a distinct possibility!

 

Don't forget its the NT Night run on the 14 January - consider entering or volunteering to help out.

Well done to all those who turned out for the first race of the series - especially the ladies who managed to field 4 teams (5 runners per team). Imagine how many would have been there if there hadn't been a conflict with the Barnsley 10k.

 

Check out the Peco XC Page  (Race 1) for full details.

Edwinstowe 4 Dec

(Posted 6 Dec)

What a cracking day out with 2 coaches making an early start down the A1, picking up a couple of hitch hikers at Bawtry. 73 members completed the 10k race in fine conditions, some even enjoying the lap of the cricket field at the end! We had supporters also, some assisting as marshals and Pat Wood our on course photographer. Post race 81 managed to walk to the pub for a drink or two and Xmas meal - reserved it again for next year. On our return to Ackworth we managed to fill the 'best room' at the Mason's to round the day off with another drink or two. Plenty of prizes although we did appear to receive one too many!
