Club Championship 2016 – Race 18 – Peco XC Temple Newsam

On back of the results posted below, here are the club championship points allocations. As more than 50 Harriers took part in the event, it means there are too few points to give out. Going back through the rules everyone receives a minimum of 2 points.

The top 5 point takers are:

Position Name H’cap Time Diff Time Points
1 Martin Savage 00:43:37 12.98% 00:37:57 50
2 Simon Hands 00:42:54 12.87% 00:37:23 49
3 Matt Kasparek 00:43:42 12.24% 00:38:21 48
4 Ewan Malone 00:50:55 11.11% 00:45:16 47
5 Isobel Webster 00:42:01 9.06% 00:38:13 46

The full points table can be found here.

A lot of new Harriers took part, taking us to 118 runners participating. No real movement right at the top of the table. Yekanth doesn’t keep up his high record. I was surprised when he overtook me today at around the 5k mark! The full table can be found here.

 

The final race of the season is Middleton Park Peco on the 18th December. Good luck all.

The 2017 calendar should be posted soon, for you all to get entering. We did mention Temple Newsam 10 will be one a few weeks ago. Unfortunately it is now sold out, but a good number of Harriers have already entered!

5k Time Trial No.2 – November

We had 23 runners for the inaugural reverse route winter time trial, along with a basking heat of 12 degrees C – and a super moon that could not be seen. Only one new face was present and that was Sarah Ruxton – who managed to gain 4th place with a run time of 27.01, so sorry Sarah – you will be dropping down the starting order on your next run. Only a few runners got pb’s so not too sure if the reverse route is faster – but we will keep swapping as most runners appeared to enjoy the change. Bringing up the rear on this night unfortunately was Sam Broome with a run time of 34.31 who is slowly getting back into running mode – for the Peco’s we hope? Another runner slowly getting back up to speed was Adam who was the penultimate runner to finish with a run time of 23.23. At the front of the field it was an all-female event with Sarah Ruxton 4th, closely behind Simone Solgado 25.23, who was just pipped by 1 second by Jacquie Elmer who’s run time was 27.52. First over the line and putting in a huge effort judging by her breathing at the end was Catherine Barrett with a run time of 24.26 – still not a pb for that course but look out – she is on the mend and getting faster. Fastest runner on the night with a pb was David Hodkin with a run time of 17.40 just missing the course record by 4 seconds, currently held by Andrew Cross in Nov 13, for that route. David almost got into the prizes with picking off 16 runners and finishing 6th. Second fastest man with another pb by 2 seconds was Tim Dixon 19.41. The two fastest ladies were Emma Brigginshaw just missing a pb with 22.38, and Louise O Brien with 23.54 again outside her own pb. Could the new clockwise route be good for the men – but not the ladies – any rational explanations will be considered. The time gap between first and last runner was just over 5 minutes so not too bad with the handicapping. Never perfect but not far off. Many thanks to Nathan for doing a superb job getting them all started in the right order and on time, and getting the results as correct as we can. Any discrepancies, please let me know. Thanks also for Catherine peeping over and advising on some of the names as they quickly passed over.

Yorkshire Vets Spenborough & 2016 Season Results

It was the last of the 8 race series for 2016 today at Spenborough AC. The conditions were good and the sun was shining on the Harriers present. Some were battling for top 3 spots in their age categories and others for top honours in this very hard fought league. As a club we did well again in both the mens and womens leagues. The top 10 league positions for both leagues are below.

In the individual competitions we have unprecedented success with Niamh Jackson winning the womens competition. We think that this is the first time that a Kirkstall member has won the overall completion in the Yorkshire vets, so many congratulations to Niamh. Emma Lavelle-Wood won the F40 category and 6th overall on the womens competition. Adam Moger ran well in his first race after his bike accident today to secure his second place in the M40 category by only 4 points, so today’s effort was crucial. Alyson Glover finished 3rd in the F50 category. Well done all.

To top it off for the year, Collette won the last spot prize today. We have always been good at spot prizes, but seems that we are very good at running too!

Guy Fawkes 10 2016 – Club Championship Race 17

Yet again this great race attracted a great turn out from our members despite clashing with the Abbey Dash this year. The weather forecast was poor to terrible but in the end it was not a bad morning for a run. 19 members chased club championship points around this tough 10 miler. There are 4 main hills on the course. The “Birstwith Brute”, the “Swincliffe Swine”, the “For Fawkes Sake” and the “Holly Bank Hell” to finish. The reward for scaling all these climbs was a nice tech tee, 5 bars of chocolate and a cheer from Lucy Churm and Jill Hudson who travelled to support our runners. Given the hilly profile of this race, we would not expect anyone to get a PB, however Ben Coldwell managed a very fast time and did just that. So did Niamh Jackson and Vicki Hipkiss. Well done Ben, Niamh and Vicki. Jemma Roe recorded her first time at this distance and lives to tell the tale!.
