Here we are again folks with the results for the penultimate race of the season.
Another night with a few spots of rain but given the conditions, most found it a welcome relief from the clammy heat of the evening. There’s always an exception of course, with one PT bemoaning the fact that the rain was obscuring his vision…..if only he’d used Specsaver’s contact lens service!
With a field of 137 finishers the longest, penultimate event of the summer league is behind us.
Steve Bateson’s monopoly of the winner’s podium is finally broken by Mike Hargreaves albeit, in Steve’s absence.
Some great times by many runner’s by all accounts. Mike was followed home by Rob Weekes (EHH) and Chris Horton from Badger’s running club in the Tamworth area.
Is that an indication of the fame of this beloved running club of ours and the fantastic Summer League organised by Pete Dearing for the club? I think so!
The ladies event was won by CoH’s Carla Stansfield by a clear six minutes from our own Carole Fee with Emily Wix (EHH) on her heels.
Both team prizes won by the red massive.
The handicap event has some additional prizes this time around as there were two age category prizes without any contestants, and on top of that two of the handicap prizes had to be ‘shuffled’ down as the winners had already recieved race or vet prizes.
Total of seven handicap prizes as follows: 1st Wayne Martindale, followed by Stephen Braddock, Shaun Bonnar, Steve Taylor, Nigel Pennington, Lucas Meagor and Andy Baker.
The league table after seven of the eight events is as follows:
|2||73||Verona||Petty||Bridlington Road Runners||218|
|3||143||Luke||Bramley||East Hull Harriers & AC||214|
If my maths is correct (United States of America nationals please note correct spelling of “math”!) only the top seven remain in contention for the first prize, with Lee Campbell and Vicky Webster only having an outside chance of winning (i.e. the top five don’t turn up!)
All to play for unlike England whose fantstic run ended last night.
So to close these ramblings, well run everyone and well played England!

I know you’ve all been waiting for these especially as the handicap league hots up. The two leaders both suffered on Tuesday, one not running the other not scoring high enough despite finishing in exactly his handicap time………well done Peter Dearing!

As ever, the leading runners pushed each other hard with some really good times, and in case anyone missed it, Mr. Keith (tedious) Conkerton ran really well once again for yet another personal best, joking apart, great running Keith.
Once again, I deny any responsibility for your individual handicap times, if you spot any errors please let me know; and if there are any then it’ll probably be down to yours truly…….enjoy!
