Summer League Hedon 4 mile and Final Handicap Table

Last report of the summer league season and what a race that was….says he whilst sat in the beer tent starting to process the final results!

First up a clean sweep by the City of Hull Ladies taking the first three places and of course the team prize; well done Carla Stansfield, Sophie Lee and Naomi Bright.  And a not too tardy finishing time of 23:50 by Carla.

In the men’s event, it was back to normal with Steve Bateson winning his seventh event of the season in 20:50 followed in by Mike Hargreaves and James Kraft from Scarborough Athletic Club.  Team event to the Harriers with the addition of Robert Weekes from fourth place.

Final handicap winners of the season were Ven Moverly (EHH), Dave Anderson (EHH), Abigail Morgan (Hornsea Harriers), Peter Thompson (Unattached) and lastly Kris Hopkins (EHH).

The Overall handicap results went down to the wire with Alexia Morgan (Hornsea Harriers) the race leader being overhauled in the last event by Luke Bramley (EHH).

Despite being unable to take an active part in the season (only completed one race) it has nevertheless been a most enjoyable event, even given all my VLOOKUP issues that plagued some of the results.  Work has already begun rebuilding the race spreadsheets so I can offer an improved service next year, you wish………!

I think we all need to give the organiser, Pete Dearing, our thanks for another superb season of racing and not forgetting all those regulars and not so regulars that turned out to support in other roles.

I thank you all.

So that’s it:

Enjoy the rest of the summer,

La fin; Fine; Das Ende; El Fin; Koniec; Mwisho.
