A disappointing turn out for this year’s event. It obviously didn’t create the interest of our usual timed event, which attracts a very high proportion of on the day entries.
Still, I hope those of you that ran produced the sorts of times you were looking for and most importantly; suffered no injuries or accidents.
So just remains to wish you all the very, very best for the New Year, it can hardly be worse than this one.
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!
UPDATE Thursday 27th
After being advised of some errors in the handicap calculation I have investigated and found that the runners in the last sixteen places were wrong. The formulae calculating the difference from actual to handicap time were corrupted and not looking in the correct place.
No real change to the prizes, just that it is now joint winners with £17:50 each!
Many of you may find their points for race six have changed very slightly, biggest losers were John Pawson and Jeffery Copping, my apologies gentlemen.
The league table has changed slightly with John Pawson’s total; dropping eleven points down to 400. Alan Smith and Kirsty both move up one place into fourth and fifth respectively.
This does make the closing two races a little more interesting But John still has a massive 55 point lead over joint second placed Venika Moverley and Oliver Burnett.
Once again apologies………if any excel whizz kids out there want a job for next summer………..let me know!
Another evening of cool running weather, but at least it didn’t throw it down. We may have to consider renaming this year’s league, I’m open to suggestions on a postcard but I’d favour ‘The Terribly Unseasonal East Hull Harriers Summer League 2019’. But then again what do I know?
Well, I know the following:
Becky Briggs turned up to win the lady’s event by a country mile from Carla Stansfield (both City of Hull) and our own Kirsty Wilson in – 35:33; 39:28 and 42:34 respectively.
The men’s event was once again won by Mike Hargreaves (EHH) 32:41, from Andy Deyes (EHH) 34:40 and Scott Hargreaves (BRRC) 34:53.
Surprisingly both team prizes were won by East Hull Harriers. COH only fielded three female athletes and unfortunately, Karen Scott just couldn’t quite do enough to beat the top three EHH girls into second place.
Well, run everyone.
In the handicap event, we had an extra prize as there was no lady V55 runner in the race (if only I’d known, a bit of lippy and a skirt and I’d be £10 richer), quite useful as there was a tie for fifth place.
The following have earned themselves a bit of cash for their efforts:
- Martin Walker (EHH)
- Claire Spear (HH)
- Drew Wilson (HH)
- Paul Cartwright (CoH)
- = Kris Hopkins (EHH) & Patrick Walker (CoH)
The handicap league has had some changes in the top few positions but John Pawson has consolidated his lead with another 88 points from Tuesday’s race………..perhaps the handicapper will notice?
Here are the top five positions:
- 400 John Pawson (CoH)
- 345 Venika Moverley (EHH)
- 345 Oliver Burnett (EHH)
- 321 Alan Smith (EHH)
- 320 Kirsty Wilson (EHH)
Remember, this is a six best from eight results competition so next time out, we will introduce the reduction of the second lowest score from the total.
This means that those of you with two very low scores have the opportunity to make ground on the leaders; good luck all.
