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

Winter 5k Time Trial Jan 2016 – Results

5K TIME TRIAL MON 11TH JAN 2016

We had 29 runners out on a night that was not as cold as first thought – fortunately for the late starters who had to wait up to 16 minutes. The runners included 3 new faces to this event – two of which joined the club that night. Was this before or after the event? and has any resigned yet? The two new members were Lisa Gibson who started somewhere in the middle of the pack, and David Hodkin who started towards the rear. The other new face was a relative new member Hannah Newman, who had the pleasure of starting near to the front. The first 4 over the line were Malcolm Taylor, still improving, in a run time of 25.32, followed 31 seconds later by Neil Marshall in a run time of23.03. Third was one of our new members Hannah Newman in a run time of 28.39, 6 seconds behind Neil.  Sorry Hannah but you may find yourself starting later on the next one. Fourth was Lucy Churm in a run time of 24.23, 14 seconds behind Hannah, but because she is coming back to full fitness and had the benefit of an earlier start, generously allocated the fourth prize to Alice Chandler who finished same time as Lucy with a run time of 24.23. Bringing up the rear on the night were Ian Brown, 35.06 and Matt Hooban-Sykes on his comeback, 29.54. The fastest lady on the night was Alice Murray-Gourlay with a run time of 20.23, picking up 11 places and finishing 15th. The fastest man was that man again, Steve Webb with a run time of 18.57. It could have been an interesting battle with Hal Roberts who had a run time of 19.22 and Steve just pipped him to the line by 25 seconds. Both runners picking up 12 and 10 places respectively. Many thanks to Keiran O’Brien and James Woodman for ensuring everyone got off in the right order and time, and (hopefully) recording the correct times and positions of the finishers. The first runner finished in a time of 34.02 and the last runner was 38.24. Taking out the first and last 2 runners the time difference between the 26 runners was 2 minutes 12 seconds. Not too bad for the handicaps but not perfect, especially if you finished lower down the field. Maybe next race? A summary of overall positions of all runners who have done at least 1 of the 4 races to date will be revealed shortly. Don’t forget there are some small prizes for the overall winners of the best 4 out of 6 races.

Cheers. Peter
