The Wolds Way Relay

With the greatest respect to those that do it every day, getting up at 6am is thankfully something I’m no longer used to, so to be getting up at 6am to run the 1st leg of the Wolds Way Challenge and kick off the race for the East Hull Harriers mens team, was to say the least a tad nerve wracking.

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.

Brathay Windermere Marathon

A beautiful setting for a road marathon, including a lap around Lake Windermere, starting and finishing from Brathay Hall, heading off through Outgate, up and down through Hawkshead, alongside Esthwaite Water, past Lakeside to Newby Bridge at the southern point of the lake, then back up past Fell Foot Park.

Beverley 10k

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Beverley 10k. Back in 2009 when I first started running this was my first race. Back then I took my training seriously. Week after week I gradually built the distance until I was confident I could make the 6.2 miles. That confidence was shattered when I got overtaken by the guy in the Beverley Beaver mascot costume going uphill in the second mile, though I recovered enough to catch him some 3 miles later on the downhill back into town.

Summer League Sproatley Seven Mile

What a difference a fortnight and a fully functional set of Excel VLOOKUPs makes!

Getting the donkey work done in the Constable Arms last night then finishing them off this evening made a big difference, I even fitted in a guitar practice session.

So the results look as if they were fairly predicatable given the field on the night. Our own Steve Bateson leading home Mike Hargeaves and Phill Taylor.  City of Hull’s Carla Stansfield came in first in the ladies event followed home by Kirsty Wilson and Carol Fee.  Both team prizes going to the red massive.

The handicap race was won by Anthea Eskrett from Alexia Morgan and Vicky Godfrey.

Alexia Morgan’s 59 points from last nights race has pushed her up into first place on 174 followed by Vicky Webster and Sean Higgins on 167 and 165 points respectively.

Still all to play for with three events left, but, remember that only six of the eight events count for the league, so there is still chance for plenty of contestants to make a challenge for the prizes.

As ever, I just do the results, handicaps are ‘nowt to do wi me’ (in a broad Yorkshire accent), so for your reading pleasure, here they are:

Spot any errors, drop me a line, message or whatever


Mr D has spotted an error so I’m afraid Vicky Godfey is not allowed to win two prizes (unless one were a team prize) so her handicap prize has gone to Simon Porter of Bridlington Road Runners.
