Well what an evening that was…..pretty wet for nearly everyone…..except yours truly, who claimed he needed to add the entries on the night onto the spread sheet and spent his time quaffing ale and entertaining a certain young Miss Jacketts……..who has the same expensive tastes as her mum……..

We welcomed running buddies from afar this week, Jenny, Judy, Helena, Colin, David and Richard all made the trip from Baddesley Ensor (near Birmingham) in North Warwickshire.  That’s some commitment to running to make a 260 mile round trip up to six hours travelling just for a seven mile race in good old East Yorkshire.  If there were prizes for distance travelled, you guys would have walked it…..see what I did there?  Anyways I hope you all enjoyed the race and maybe we’ll see you again sometime?

Now as for the rest of you, I hope you all enjoyed the race too, despite the lousy conditions.

Mike Hargreaves (EHH) continued his clean sweep coming home in 37:46 over a minute and a half ahead of  Gregan Clarkson (KUHAC) and Andy Deyes (EHH) a further 17 seconds behind.

In the ladies event it was an East Hull Harriers clean sweep with Kirsty Wilson (48:48) followed in by Katie Seddon (49:43) and Carole Fee (50:15)

Both team prizes going to the East Hull massive.

In the evening’s handicap event the conditions obviously told as there were only 15 athletes equalling or better their respective handicap times, great running.  First three were: John Pawson (CoH); Anthony Whitely (Unatt.); Jackie Kirman (HH).

In the handicap league, this week sees the introduction of the removal of the first of the two low scores; the second will appear after the next two races.  Remember, the league is best six from eight results!

This brings in some changes at the top: leaders are now:

  • 1st John Pawson (CoH) 323 points
  • 2nd Simon Adcock (KuHAC) 292 points
  • 3rd  Alan Smith 291 points
  • 4th Demi Johnson 266 points
  • 5th Oliver Burnett 264 points (all EHH)

All still to play for!

So, that’s all from me folks, till next time,
Mike
