2018 Boxing Day 10k Results

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.

results only EHH Boxing Day 10k 2018

So it just remains for me to wish you all a prosperous and fast New Year..

Withernsea 5

The Withernsea 5 is one of my personal favourites on the race calendar, it’s relatively short, pleasantly undulating, always well organised and I always seem to do (relatively) well there. This year presented us with a hot and blustery day, which made itself known particularly between the three and four mile markers, as the sun blazed down on our backs and the wind came directly in our faces. This is also the section that has the courses biggest climb, but at least when you’ve turned the corner back towards the coast, you know the worst is over with and it’s just a case of hanging on to the end.

Hardmoors 26.2(ish) Trail Marathon: Goathland Or, Six Go To Mystery Moor

It’s the morning of Saturday 12th November. Race registration opens at 8 and the race starts at 9. It’s 7:15 and I’m the first person in the carpark, having navigated the dodgy roads between Pickering and Goathland. The journey has been made all the more awkward because the sheep that are free to wander across the road at will are behaving like morons because of the first really winterish weather of the year. A question occurs to me: why don’t they call it Sheepland?

The Yorkshire Coast 10k 2016

The last weekend of October was a dilemma which I suppose lots of Harriers had, should I go to the fun filled weekend in the Dales with the EHH Massive, to take on the tough hills and conditions of the 3 Peaks, or do the local Haltemprice 10K with it’s own challenge of hills or a fast, flat and potential PB course of the McCain Yorkshire Coast 10K in sunny Scarborough? Well I wanted to do all three but I entered the Scarborough race first so I stuck with that choice.
