PECO XC Roundhay 2016

We had 54 members running today and it was a momentous day for our ladies at the last race of the PECO XC season at Roundhay. In good conditions and glorious sunshine, the ladies won their 5th race out of 5 and as a result, take the top podium spot in the premier league for the first time in the club’s history. Very well done and congratulations to our fabulous ladies!! The ladies ‘B’ team (finishers 6 to 10) were also going for victory today but the results are not published yet. The men finished 5th today which leaves them finishing 2nd in the first division, so hopefully gaining promotion into the premier league for next season. A great day for Kirkstall Harriers.

Here are the individual results for todays race:

Winter 5k Time Trial – 10 Feb 2016 – Results

5K TIME TRIAL WED 10TH FEB 2016

We had another good turn out with 26 runners braving the cold. Some did admit they may not have been down had they known it was the time trial night !!! Many thanks to Adam who helped with the start and finish and ensured they all got off on time, and recorded with the right time and position. The runners included one new face on the night Sameer Shah. We hope he enjoyed the experience as much as I am sure you all did. There was also a mixture of new and old faces who were doing this years time trial for the first time.  Steve Knight, Yekanth Venkiteela, Sean Scanlon, Jill Camm, Chris  Glover and Fred Maier.

The first member over the line was Becky Dwyer with a run time of 25.12 who we have noticed is getting a bit faster lately – so sorry, your handicap time is going to have to change. She was a good minute and half in front of the next runner, Sameer Shah. 2nd member across the line only 16 seconds behind Sameer was Mark Young in a run time of 21.46. 16 seconds behind Mark was David Hodkin with a run time of 18.02. Bringing up the rear on the night was Adam Nodwell with a run time of 22.04 – who happened to finish first on his first run in October – so bad handicapping on someones part !!! The fastest time was David Hodkin with 18.02, passing 19 runners and just pipping Fred Maier who finished with 18.08 who past 16 runners. Fastest female on the night was Alice with 19.28 who past 13 runners. There was a time lapse of 5.52 between first and last home but allowing for bad handicapping, poor or good run on the night – taking out the top and bottom 2 the time lapse is 3.11 between the other 22 runners.

There is one last run in March – Hooray I hear you all say – and the competition for the best 4 positions out of 6 is hotting up with 10 runners already in contention.

Hope this is okay – Hope to see you Sat morning at Bramley – if not Sunday at Roundhay Park

It seems, provisionally, we have won the Ladies Premier Division! Also we are close to promotion back to the Men’s Premier Division, one point behind Abbey Runners with one race to go! Great work everyone!
