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.

Cheers,
Mike

Summer League Leven 10k Results

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:

As always, if you spot any errors let me know and I’ll correct them as soon as I can; except handicaps……..nothing to do with me!

Cheers, Mike

Summer League Leven 10k Results

Results attached for last night’s race.

Good accurate timekeeping and bib number recording yesterday so thanks team and for all the runners keeping their bib numbers clear on the approach to the finish line.

Hope to process the prizes and handicaps later but may have to go out; patience is a virtue, at least I think my mum told me so………..and so it came to pass that the results secretary pulled his finger out and completed the rest of the results earlier than even he expected…………

Mike

P.S. – The usual disclaimer; handicapping is nothing to do with me, I just do as I’m told!
