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.
STOP PRESS STOP PRESS:
Just uploaded some amended handicap results and the handicap table after our illustrious race director pointed out that there were four athletes omitted from the previous results……well they’re not now!
Considering I CBA to start the results by the time I’d eaten and had a shower last night I set to when I returned home from work today. I’m still having problems with my excel spreadsheet ‘VLOOKUPS’ as well! I realise that most of you don’t know what the %$£&**^% hell they are, it also appears that I don’t either because I can’t mend them…….anyone who knows better is welcome to come round to mine and explain them, again……
Anyway, enough of my troubles, the results are in and there are some great runs from an awful lot of people. Mark Gadie managed to smash his PB with a first sub 40 by some way; well done Mark. I managed to get myself onto the handicap league table by getting round the course, my first completed race since the winter league. Steve Bateson continues to excel at the front pushed hard by Mike Hargreaves and several others at the pointy end of the race.
The handicap league is hotting up with Vicky Webster and Sean Higgins vying for the lead at the halfway point. No lowest score deductions appearing at the moment, they may have a bearing later in the league, still all to run for!
Last night’s handicaps, set by our own Peter Dearing, seem to be some of the best yet, good work Pete, but if you could take the time to reflect on the poor job you actually did on mine I’d appreciate it and I’ll look forward to an improvement next time (joke! I could always massage mine if I wanted to. You know what they say a good ‘scorer’ beats a good player every time)?
Anyway enough of my prattling, enjoy:
