Summer League Sproatley Seven Miles (Corrected)

Well what an evening that was…..pretty wet for nearly everyone…..except yours truly, who claimed he needed to add the entries on the night onto the spread sheet and spent his time quaffing ale and entertaining a certain young Miss Jacketts……..who has the same expensive tastes as her mum……..

We welcomed running buddies from afar this week, Jenny, Judy, Helena, Colin, David and Richard all made the trip from Baddesley Ensor (near Birmingham) in North Warwickshire.  That’s some commitment to running to make a 260 mile round trip up to six hours travelling just for a seven mile race in good old East Yorkshire.  If there were prizes for distance travelled, you guys would have walked it…..see what I did there?  Anyways I hope you all enjoyed the race and maybe we’ll see you again sometime?

Now as for the rest of you, I hope you all enjoyed the race too, despite the lousy conditions.

Mike Hargreaves (EHH) continued his clean sweep coming home in 37:46 over a minute and a half ahead of  Gregan Clarkson (KUHAC) and Andy Deyes (EHH) a further 17 seconds behind.

In the ladies event it was an East Hull Harriers clean sweep with Kirsty Wilson (48:48) followed in by Katie Seddon (49:43) and Carole Fee (50:15)

Both team prizes going to the East Hull massive.

In the evening’s handicap event the conditions obviously told as there were only 15 athletes equalling or better their respective handicap times, great running.  First three were: John Pawson (CoH); Anthony Whitely (Unatt.); Jackie Kirman (HH).

In the handicap league, this week sees the introduction of the removal of the first of the two low scores; the second will appear after the next two races.  Remember, the league is best six from eight results!

This brings in some changes at the top: leaders are now:

  • 1st John Pawson (CoH) 323 points
  • 2nd Simon Adcock (KuHAC) 292 points
  • 3rd  Alan Smith 291 points
  • 4th Demi Johnson 266 points
  • 5th Oliver Burnett 264 points (all EHH)

All still to play for!

So, that’s all from me folks, till next time,

Mike

Summer League Sproatley Seven Mile

What a difference a fortnight and a fully functional set of Excel VLOOKUPs makes!

Getting the donkey work done in the Constable Arms last night then finishing them off this evening made a big difference, I even fitted in a guitar practice session.

So the results look as if they were fairly predicatable given the field on the night. Our own Steve Bateson leading home Mike Hargeaves and Phill Taylor.  City of Hull’s Carla Stansfield came in first in the ladies event followed home by Kirsty Wilson and Carol Fee.  Both team prizes going to the red massive.

The handicap race was won by Anthea Eskrett from Alexia Morgan and Vicky Godfrey.

Alexia Morgan’s 59 points from last nights race has pushed her up into first place on 174 followed by Vicky Webster and Sean Higgins on 167 and 165 points respectively.

Still all to play for with three events left, but, remember that only six of the eight events count for the league, so there is still chance for plenty of contestants to make a challenge for the prizes.

As ever, I just do the results, handicaps are ‘nowt to do wi me’ (in a broad Yorkshire accent), so for your reading pleasure, here they are:

Spot any errors, drop me a line, message or whatever

Mr D has spotted an error so I’m afraid Vicky Godfey is not allowed to win two prizes (unless one were a team prize) so her handicap prize has gone to Simon Porter of Bridlington Road Runners.

Summer League Sproatley 7 Mile Results…….

Results from last night’s Summer League, all went smoothly once again.  Good to see that everyone is making it easy for the bib number recorders to accurately record your finish!  Save me getting into trouble for suggesting their eyesight is not good enough to read numbers through your arms as you poise to stop your GPS watches, numbers that flap in the wind because you haven’t used enough pins or in some instances are on the back of the vest!  As for the race, some great times with one exception I’m aware of (that’s yours truly!).

If anyone recognises any problems please get back to me.

Mike
