Hull Marathon – volunteers

To All East Hull Harriers members:

I have had a mail from Lucas Meagor, Race Director of the Hull Marathon regarding clubs assisting in the event.  As many of you will be aware, the past two years we have manned a water station along with other marshalling duties.

  1. Are we prepared to marshal a zone along the route?   I have said yes and also put myself forward as Team Leader (though I’m happy to hand over that role) for the zone covering James Reckitt Avenue.  I’ll be putting a notice up in the club shortly for names or please indicate below (or message me). Remember, you also have to register on the Hull Marathon site.
  2. Lucas is prepared to fund attendance at a Road Traffic Management course in Beverley (date tbc), which would mean helping at key junctions in the race. Again, let me know below or via PM.
  3. If anyone would like to do any leaflet drops (anywhere between 27 August and 10 Sept) or help with goody bag packing on Thursday 21 September, please let me know and I’ll pass on your details to Lucas.
  4. They are looking for a display for the exhibition at Hull College (22-24 September) which illustrates our club’s history.  This does not need to be manned but will need someone from the club to pull it together and also deliver/collect the materials. Examples given are – history of races, details of club history, pictures of the clubhouse (curry night?), leaflets with website and contact details.
  5. We can have a ‘designated cheer point’ for the Runners’ Guide, so if anyone wants to look at the course and suggest somewhere, go for it!
  6. We could also have a presence in West Park in the Race Village but that might stretch our resources somewhat.

The looks like a long list and it may be that we don’t do all of these.  Please let me know what you can do by messaging me by 19th August.

Summer League Race Eight Hedon 4 Mile Results

Udate! Update! Udate!

I’ve attached the last documents to finalise this year’s summer league.

There have been some stellar performances right through the field and this has resulted in some cracking racing.

The handicap league has been interesting with several early front runners falling away (including myself) and close conclusion.  The runners in the first twelve places after race seven had the potential to win the league and we must congratulate Shaun Alcock, the eventual winner; indeed, its “Well ran everyone”.

I have to thank Pete Dearing for all his selfless work organising the whole series and every one that has dug in and assisted as marshalls, time keepers, number recorders, entry takers and any other role I have forgotten.  I can assure you that every runner appreciates your time.

I must also thank everyone for their positive comments about my abilities compiling the results.  There have been some hiccoughs along the way and I have appreciated the assistance of Peter “Yoda” Taylor (Spreadsheet Jedi) sorting out some of the issues…..especially the spectacular disaster (some may say ‘fiasco) compiling the results of race two!  Its been both interesting and at times intense and I have largely enjoyed the experience.

So that’s it for the Summer League 2017, see you all next year!

The last set of results for the summer league attached below.

You will need to bear with me whilst I format the remaining documents which have taken a little longer to process due to some spreadsheet glitches I have been ironing out.

Due to this there are some changes to announce to the handicap results as follows:

Tom O’Brian, City of Hull has been promoted to third place on the night and is due £10. All existing prize winners keep their winnings as the last two places announced yesterday were tied and are now in joint fifth place!

The glitches have also resulted in a change of position in the final league table and promoted sixth place to joint fifth! The places are now as follows:

  1. Shaun Alcock
  2. Beth Dearing
  3. Kevin Anholme
  4. Kay Farrow
  5. JOINT Emma Jayne Brackstone & Linden Washby

Peter Dearing will be ensuring that those due winnings will receive them, and Kevin Anholme’s prize on the night will stand.

Apologies for any confusion, I told you I should have just put bib number 163 in every finishing position………
