Winter 5k Time Trial No.5 – 21 Feb – Results

There were 14 starters on this fairly mild night considering the weather we have endured this winter (with more to come so they say), but it was the week after the Liversedge half marathon and we have quite a few runners representing the club in the National Cross Country in London this coming weekend. There were 5 new names for this winter series, 3 of which has done them in the past, Matt Sykes-Hooban, Jo McGarey (a returning member) and Jill Camm. The 2 new additions were Anna Jaines and Jonathan Young. So along with these and a few excuses on the night, there were a number of adjustments/additions to the handicaps. There was 4 minutes and 21 seconds between the first and last finisher, but making excuses for the first and last one home, the remaining 11 runners finished within 1 minute 14 seconds. First over the line after recovering from his back injury (he must be doing his physio correctly) was Matt Sykes-Hooban with a run time of 26.31, but not his fastest for this course. 2nd over the line having made his way from the very back of the starters was Jonathan Young with a run time of 18.23, the fastest on the night and the fastest this winter. Third was Dawn Henderson gradually getting faster with a run time of 29.52, a pb for her on this course. Fastest lady on the night was Anna Jaines with a run time of 24.52. Other pb’s for this winters series were Patrick Nesden, 34.02 and Malcolm Taylor 25.39. Bringing up the rear on the night sadly was Jacquie Elmer who has not been down for a while so this may be just a one off. Another disappointment was Jill Camm who recorded a dnf due to hamstring problems, hopefully this is nothing serious and she will be back running very soon. Three other runners who “jogged” round the course or did just a part of it were Lee Hardy, (dodgy shin and doing the Harewood half M this Sunday) John Hutchinson, still recovering from serious spine nerve problem and Dave Wood, recovering from a foot injury. Many thanks too to the team of supporters, Sam Taylor, Gary Carlisle, Lucy Churm and Kelvin Horner. You will be pleased to know the next one in March is the last for this winter.

PECO XC Race 5 and Season Results

Yesterday saw the final race in the this season’s series of cross country races at Temple Newsam. 24 of our ladies and 19 men turned out to run for the club and attempt to keep both teams in their current divisions. In the end, the ladies did not quite make it and finished 6th out of 7 teams in the premier division, which means that they will compete in the 1st division next year. The mens team managed to just stay ahead of Wetherby and remain in the 1st division. Well done to all our members who ran in the XC PECO races this year. The men’s close shave shows that everyone counts towards the league position at the end of the season. It is a tough league with up to 900 runners taking part, so we should be proud of our performances. Many thanks to Adam Moger for organising our club entries and being so enthusiastic and encouraging about the races again this year. Yet again on Sunday we had some supporters from the club who came along to cheer on our runners. Thanks to everyone who has supported the teams this season. It means allot to those running to see a familiar face and hear a cheer while running round the course.

Final league tables and race 5 individual results below:

Don’t forget that there are the PECO relays on 25th March.
