15 Members chose PONTEFRACT parkrun where there was a warm tribute to a regular runner who sadly recently passed away. Well done to all the organising team and runners for the respectful way they marked the occasion. There were 3 year best times for Terry Forrest (2nd home in 16:37), Chris Bourner (24:12) and Jodi Hayward (29:58). Wendy Bourner was our 1st lady home.
21 went to NOSTELL PRIORY parkrun led home again by Simon Newton (2nd overall). David Fitzgerald continued his impressive start to the year with a new pb of 20:59. 7 new year best times - Liane Warren (22:51), Richard Thackeray (23:28), Martyn Stearn (23:30), Roy Simpson (25:32), Paul Law (27:06), Andrew Parkes & Vic Adams (29:07). Rachel Cook had a course pb of 24:59.
Ian Richardson had a good morning at WAKEFIELD THORNES parkrun with a new pb of 19:14. Adrian Leach was accompanied by Lee Hopkins at LINCOLN parkrun, Adrian coming away with a year best 21:06.
Brian Dodd was again out at CRISSI FIELD parkrun in San Francisco knocking 7 minutes off last weeks time for a year best 35:33. He cam 6th ahead of his wife, son and daughter in law and together the Dodds amounted to 44% of the field - probably a world parkrun record!!!!
A depleted club turnout for the NORTON 9 due to Peco and Marathon training. Steve Wigglesworth was our first home in 1:00:46
Provisional Team and individual results are now out and overall we didn't have a bad morning at all. Our men came 2nd in Div 1 and the Vets were top of their Div 1. The Ladies did well, finishing 4th in their Divi.1. More results still awaited. More info here
Our Annual Awards Evening is always the highlight of the year and the 70 attendees appeared to fully enjoy the prceedings - as well as the food, drink and dancing. Well done to everyone who made it another successful event.
First race in this year's series is at Honley - 9.75k off road with 290m of ascent. It is a busy race day but could well be of interest to those who like the off-road stuff. Hopefully we can get more people intersted on less busy race days. More details here
Have you entered yet - this is a great event and a Grand Prix race. We usually have a good turnout - lets see if we can have a record
For the first time in many years we had a representative in the National Championships at Hampstead Heath in London. Well done to John Moran who competed in the mud over a 12k course in the company of some of the best XC athletes in the country. Next year we could have quite a few more runners! A great article on the event here
One week you run at Nostell Priory parkrun - the next you run on the waterfront of San Francisco Bay with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island! That's pecisely the good fortune of Brian Dodd who ran the Crissy Field parkrun along with his wife and son. He's now the proud record holder for their M75 age category! Is their a parkrun in Hawaii - he'll be there shortly?
Meanwhile in Canada, Becci Winter decided to up her fitness levels before she returns home in June by competing in the Hypothermic Half Marathon in British Columbia. Not a bad run either - 6th overall and 2nd lady (bet that miffed her!). She's already entering races in the hope of retaining her trophies - get your runs in ladies before she returns!
Not sure if this is a UKA event however Becci Winter did remarkably well to finish 3rd overall and 1st lady in a 5k run in Canada wearing snow shoes. Her time - 28 mins!
