National XC Championships – Nottingham

Hats off to the three Harriers who represented the club against the best in the country yesterday in Nottingham at the National cross country championships. It looks like it was a very muddy course. Well done to Chris, Kieran and Sean.

Club Championship Race 3 – PECO Barnbow Fields

Apologies for my tardiness folks, but marathon training takes up a lot of my free time recently (that and trampolining – see Adam Mogers post on Facebook).

Not even 2 months into 2017 and we’ve had 3 races already, race season has started in earnest! Sunday saw the turn of PECO taking centre stage in the Club Championship, with a muddy 5 mile course in play. Chris has already posted the resultson the website, see the previous posts for results. CC points have been dished out, the top 3 are below. Again I must apologise, I gave a slightly different top 3 at the AGM but with an updated set of handicaps not loaded into the spreadsheet, it has changed it! It seems to have favoured our quick runners, maybe the mens team deserved better than a 7th place in the league! The top 3 below:

Position Name H’cap Time Diff Time Points
1 Tim Dixon 00:39:52 10.84% 00:35:33 50
2 Rachael Kearns 00:56:40 9.62% 00:51:13 49
3 Lee Hardy 00:40:24 8.93% 00:36:48 48

The full results, including previous races, can be found here.

The results mean a bit of a shake up in the table, with Chris Hudson taking the lead, followed closely by Alex Potts who has maximum points from her 2 races so far. Keep up the good work! The full table can be found here.

 

Next up is the first combined race in the series, with both Spen 20 and East Hull 20 counting as one race, if you happen to do both, your best performance against handicap will count. A full list of 2017 races can be found here.

Winter 5k Time Trial Series 2017 – No.5 – February

For this pre AGM amble we had 27 runners. Weather conditions were good for the time of year and the route would have been a piece of cake after the tough mudder of a PECO race the day before.

We had 7 new faces to this winters series. Amy Crook, a new member, Alyson Glover, an “old” member but a very welcome face to the training night, Simon Boardman, and Kieran, who must have drawn the shortest straw regarding the not so beneficial handicaps. There were also Catherine (Cat) James, Jo Kendall and Matt Evans who have been before (Jo Kendall going back a year or two it seems) who were not members on the night – so missed out on any of the goodies going. Hopefully after the AGM, they are all paid up members now.

For a change the first 4 ones off, all finished at the back, with Steve Knight picking up the booby prize. First one over the line was Matt Evans with a run time of 20 minutes dead, but he was spotted taking the short cut up the side of the church, good Kirkstall Harrier potential there, or bad instructions from me? but as a non-member was outside the prizes anyway. First member over the line was Simon Boardman with a run time of 22.20, followed by Collette Spencer with a pb for the course of 26.01, then Catherine Barrett with a seasons best of 23.58. Fastest man on the night was Lee Hardy, 3 seconds out of a pb, but overtaking 19 from the very back to finish 8th and a run time of 19.56. Fastest lady, just pipping Catherine Barrett was Jo Kendall with a run time of 23.55. Other pb ers were Hannah Newman 26.23 and Malcolm Taylor 24.41

The good news (or bad) depending on your stance(style, speed, stamina or whatever) is that there is only one more winter time trial left, which will be in March. The overall positions of the best 4 runs will be worked out over the next couple of days and hopefully will be in time for the March newsletter deadline.

Many thanks to Jemma Roe and Adam Rhodes for doing a sterling job in getting you all off in the correct order and time, and recording the times (and names) again in the correct order.

Any queries regarding the running times – please let me know. The handicaps are non-negotiable I’m afraid

Club Championship Race 2 – Liversedge Half Marathon

Well done to the 11 hardy folk that completed the Liversedge Half on Sunday. Chris has posted our results up already, but now it’s time for the Club Championship results. Why else would you put yourself through that? With the minimum of 40 points dished out, there was definitely a good reason to complete the course.

The full KH results can be found here.

As we’re two races into the 20 race season, there’s a new look to the table, which can be found here.

I have updated the marathon bonus and will be doing similar to the parkrun bonuses later this month. So if you have run a marathon this year and run one of the two races, please let me know either in person, facebook or through the club email. If you have already done 4 parkruns, don’t fret, you will get your points!

The 18 remaining races can be found here. Most are open for entry!

Liversedge HM 2017

The conditions were just right today for the Liversedge Half Marathon. Tradition has it that this race must be run in rain, sleet, snow and wind at about zero degrees and that was just what we got!

Well done to the 11 Harriers who scored club championship points today. Not many will be as hard earned as these. It was so cold, Chris Hudson wore a pair of gloves as well as shorts and t-shirt! 

For photos taken by someone who wimped out of the race can be found here

Our results are below. Malcolm will be posting the CC points and tables on here soon.
