Results Round Up – Tuesday 17th July

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the club so here is a roundup of all the recent results. On the last batch, I forgot to include Andy Harris in the Staveley Stampede results, he finished 6th overall and in a time of 39:07 – sorry Andy!

Please let me know if you raced and didn’t get a mention or if I’ve missed something like your new parkrun PB – with so many new members it’s difficult to keep tabs on everyone during the racing season. Well done to every one that’s raced over the last few weeks – this unusually prolonged spell of hot weather has made running more challenging than usual! It’s also great to see the Zip to Zoomers enjoying the races and evening league events – your hard work and positive attitude is really evident………

Eccup 10
This race is another popular 10 mile event that usually fills up quite quickly, and is very well attended by clubs from the Leeds/Harrogate area. It also features as one of our club champ races so there was extra points up for grabs. It was hot day so well done to all those who attended.

Here is the finishing list:
Adam Kirk 1:01:30
John Beaumont 1:10:34
Kevin Dalton 1:10:57
Emma Dooley 1:18:44
Sue Simpson 1:22:45
Yvonne Skelton 1:35:35
Michelle Smith 1:46:38
Sylvia Morten 1:56:40
Sarah Chalmers 1:59:48

Harrogate 10k
Harrogate Harriers once again organised this 10k, this time with a bit more of an interesting route which started and finished at their new base at the squash club. Conditions were not great for running as temperatures were up in to the high 20’s, and with no breeze to relieve some of the hot air, the last hundred or so metres up the ‘Crimple Killer ‘ proved to be a bit savage for some folk! Nidd had a good number of runners there to support the Harriers, and all managed to cross the line without any issues despite the conditions…..

Hadrian’s Wall half
Phil Ventress ran the Hadrian’s Wall half marathon the other week but I forgot to include it the write up! Phil finished in 1:51:16, which was a PB for him at this one.

Burn Valley
This half marathon, which starts and finishes in Masham, was given the nick name of ‘Death Valley’ by one of our club members. This is in no doubt due to the many hills that runners have to ascend over the 13.1 mile route usually in very warm conditions. It’s a great one to enter and another club champs race. Here are the finishers:

Andy Todd 1:31:48.7
Martin Lofthouse 1:32:19.6
Nigel Scaife 1:42:57.6
Kevin Dalton 1:44:35.4
Emma Dooley 1:51:27.3

Michelle Smith 2:31:07.1
Fiona Robinson 2:35:20

Thirsk Evening league
This was the last race of the current batch that we actually got to run in before it’s our turn to host next week. After the two previous races involving lots of hills and not much food left at the post race buffets, the relative flatness (and very dusty) 5 mile route at Thirsk was welcomed by most runners (apart from FRP). Conditions were again not ideal for racing due to the high temperatures – a theme that seems to have been running since June – but we managed to push on and get round without incident. The post-race food at the athletics club was spot on as there was plenty of sarnies and cakes to go round. Although we didn’t have as many runners at this one as we have had at the previous races in the series, it was still a great turnout of 50+ on the night. Jeff Walker gets a special mention for sacrificing is own race time to make sure that others got round ok…….

Chocolate 10k
Running and chocolate will always be winning combination, and there’s no better way to celebrate these great things than having a 10k in York, a city rich in chocolate history. Only in its second year, this race incorporates a 2 lap route around York Knavesmire and all finishers get a medal, goody bag, and homemade cake!

NVRR had four runners at this one, with Jonathan Clipston first back for the club in 59:23. Clare Simpson was next in 1:17:30, then Lisa Clipston in 1:29:21, and Carol Coates 1:29:23. Well done everyone, the cake was well deserved!
