Summer League Coniston 10k 26th June 2018

Here we are again folks another Summer League race done and dusted and the results appended below for your perusal.

First the sexy bits: Spreadsheet VLOOKUPs all functioning correctly, newly automated calculation of race time against handicap working after a minor glitch (thanks Kris Hopkins) hence the new format on the results.

The handicap league continues to hot up. Alexia Morgan (230) and Joe Finer (203) taking 51 and 24 point lead from the chasing pack with three others in the 170’s.  Still all to play for as next time around, contestants start to lose their lowest score as only six count from the eight races……….looks like I may have to do some creative accounting to improve on my measly ten points and worry the leaders!

The handicap this time around was won by Joe Finer, followed by Adam Callan, Helen Duncan, Shaun Bonnar and Alexia Morgan. Well ran guys.

The race itself was a fairly predictable outing for Steve Bateson and Mike Hargreaves, Steve has won all races so far and Mike second in all but the first when he was recovering from completing the London Marathon.  Looks like they’ll need to take a holiday if anyone else is going to get a look in! Great running gentlemen.

Becky Briggs stormed home in the ladies event, eigth place overall in 36:16 second home was our own Kirsty Wilson (43:44) and Carole Fee just 10 second surther back.

Team prizes both went to East Hull Harriers.

As ever, if you notice any errors let me know and I’ll endeavour to correct them as soon as I can.

Cheers,
Mike
