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,
Good evening all.
Despite the doom and gloom I have been able to process the results whilst also repairing the washing machine! Who knew, a bloke that can multi-task…….
So without further commentary here are the results, knock yourselves out……………

Any errors, let me know by the usual means.
It only seems like it was a fortnight ago that I was posting the last set of results, and here we are again!
A pleasant evening’s racing ensued, well at least I think it was, I was in a race of my own, in the pub, drinking beer and working on the results……………..so we know where the blame will lie if there are any errors……
Turns out all the errors were not my fault and I’ll keep repeating that phrase till you all believe me……
Note changes in Blue text!
Mike Hargreaves (EHH) was once again first across the line in 31:40 followed by Gregan Clarkson (KuHAC 32:33) and Lewis Suddaby (EHH 34:32).
Ladies event was won by Kerry Pearson Rotherham Harriers in 37:25 with our own Carole Fee and Kirsty Wilson following in 40:45 and 41:47 respectively
Both team prizes once again retained by East Hull Harriers.
First three in the handicap were Graeme Smith, Stephen Taylor, Dave Anderson all EHH.
I must credit Dave Gowans with some assistance with the results this time around. It is really useful to have photographic evidence to identify the suspicious character running in a number from a previous event not connected to the current series. Rumour has it he had no clean vests left and this one was at the bottom of the wash basket, having last been aired at the Hedon four mile race last July………we won’t name names shall we Mark Bissell?
It was also useful in providing evidence that Stephen Eblett (BRR) did indeed finish in 150th place and not Mike Abbotts of Durham City!
The early league leaders in the handicap are:
Samantha Bollon BRR 184; Alan (lightning strikes twice) Smith EHH 176; Karen Scott CoH 164

As ever, if you spot any mistakes (I refer you to the second para) let me know and I’ll eventually get round to rectifying them, probably at the weekend. Never, ever tell me again…….they’re always perfect………
Next race results may be somewhat delayed, either in part or totally. I’m away to Aus for a couple of weeks so will miss the East Park bash, Beth Dearing will probably publish the basic results, you may have to await my return for the rest.
Wow! Seems like only yesterday that I was finishing the results of last year’s Summer League and here we are again already!
Last night’s race took place in typical pre-Easter conditions, overcast with a breeze and quite chilly. Not the weather for standing around marshalling for ages so I suppose we should be grateful it was just five miles and not ten.
Conditions seemed good for running with some great performances through the field.
The men’s race was won by Mike Hargreaves (EHH), 44 seconds ahead of Phill Taylor (BRR) with Gregan Clarkson (CoH) a further seven seconds behind, (26:13, 26:47, 27:04)
In the lady’s event it was a ‘red’ wash with Katie Seddon ‘smashing it out of the park’ in 33:13 followed by Carole Fee, 33:39 and Kirsty Wilson, 34:01. That also sorted the female team prize!
Male team prize also went to the Harriers men with Lewis Suddaby and Mark Bissell also counting.
Other notable runs included the rapidly improving Oliver Burnett finishing 15th in 29:29; and I also noted Sheila Maddison putting in another great run (following an excellent result at Burton Pidsea on Sunday) finishing last night in 45:40.
The handicap winners last night were: Florence Henderson, unattached, (100 points), Samantha Bollon, Bridlington Road Runners (99) and Peter Taylor, City of Hull (98).
I hope you noted the new points structure of the handicap league, it follows the same principles as previous year’s but now works down from 100 to ten points.
Similarly, the handicapper is sure to have noted the winning performances and will be taking them into account when calculating them for the next and subsequent events!

So it just remains to say, good luck for the series and if you do nothing else, enjoy the racing!
Well what a race day that was!
Great weather for some fast racing and record numbers of entrants and finishers!
It was a very busy clubhouse on Wednesday morning, it had to be! Those manning the ‘on the day’ entry desk had to process 200 entrants in under an hour and a half; fantastic effort. It does make me realise that I may have to tweak the entry system for next year’s event……..any more than 200 and we could not process them all.
So we had 270 finishers and there are reports of some remarkable personal bests, not least of which is young Becky Briggs (City of Hull AC) first lady home in a remarkable 34:09, reported to be the fastest by an under 20 female athlete this year. Hope to be seeing you in some major international events before long Becky, keep it up and good luck.
I have to thank everyone that came down and pitched in to help me run the event whether volunteering or press ganged on the day by myself, it could not happen without your support.
I’ll leave you all to check the final results out yourselves, as always if you spot any errors let me know and I’ll look into it.
So it just remains for me to wish you all a prosperous and fast New Year..
