PECO XC Race 2 – Middleton Park

Well done to all those who ran today. We had 19 ladies and 31 men taking on the Middleton Park course.

Our ladies team were 5th in the premier division (down from 1st in the first race). So a lot to do in the remaining 3 races.

The men improved by two places and finished 5th today.

The individual results are below.

Winter 5k Time Trial No. 3

We had 22 runners for this the third race of winter. Amongst these were 4 new faces to the event, Charlotte Rounding, Jenny Waite, Simon Hands and Jack Hipkiss. We also did it the reverse way round, so the regular Wednesday nighters had a taste/test? of the different option. They were also the odd few claiming special dispensation due to injuries etc but all in all the finish times were quite good. Only 4 got pb’s so was this due to the reverse route – or the Christmas Meal the night before? First over the line was Simon Hands with a run time of 21.17, so his time will come down next month. 10 seconds behind was Jemma Roe, coming back from “maternity leave” with a run time of 26.27. Third over the line was Adam Moger, 6 seconds behind Jemma – but only because we shouted the panto slogan to Jemma “he’s behind you” Adams time was 20.33, so I think Adam has had enough sympathy now – and back to reality start times for him. Just missing out by 6 seconds in 4th place was James Nundy recording his first ever time at this event of 22.37. Sadly the last over the line on the night was Sean Scanlon with a run time of 24.48, – over 2 minutes slower than Octobers time, so maybe he had a double helping of Christmas pud. Fastest man on the night was Jack “Jackie” Hipkiss with a run time of 18.21, but we may have been a bit harsh with his estimated time. Fastest lady on the night was Isobel Webster with a run time of 22.21. Pb’s went to Dave Wood Jaquie Elmer, Simone Salgado and Lee Hardy.

Many thanks to Vikki Hipkiss and Sam Broome for doing a marvellous job with starting everyone off on time and recording the correct times and names at the finish.

Don’t forget we give trophies to the best overall 3 runners out of 4 runs at the end of the series, so with 3 runs still to go there is still plenty of opportunity for all.

Cheers

TT No.3 – December Results

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.
