Here are the latest batch of club results, everyone has been really busy again over the last few weeks producing great results.
In the highly unlikely of me missing somebody out or not mentioning a race that occurred, please send me the appropriate feedback so I can rectify any issues……….
This club championship race was described as fast and flat by the organisers, and judging by the number of PB’S achieved the description holds true. NVRR had 28 runners making the short jaunt over to Tadcaster for this event, and the weather remained favourable despite a momentum sapping headwind at about mile 7.
First back for the club was Capt. Martin Lofthouse in 1:07:12, with Kevin Dalton not too far behind in 1:09:12. I followed in 1:11:30, and then Brian Hainsworth was next in 1:13:41.
Emma Dooley was the first Nidd lady home, crossing the line in 1:16:09, while Becky Barron was next in 1:16:18. Dave Shores was next in 1:17:11, then Phil Ventress in 1:17:14.
Jane Evans grabbed the first PB of day by finishing in 1:17:46, followed by Sue Simpson who finished in 1:19:46. Knocking 8 minutes off her previous 10 mile time, Sarah Hughan’s marathon training continued to pay off as she finished in 1:20:10, encouraged along by Jamie Dilasser who crossed the line in 1:20:09.
Michael Benson was the next club runner to get a PB as he finished in 1:20:31, and John Mitton was next in 1:22:42. Emma Kettlewell finished in 1:24:25 and achieved a PB (and she got herself her a new parkrun PB the day before!), followed by Jeremy Scott in 1:24:25.
Christine Jones brushed any injury doubts to one side as she got herself a new course PB of 1:25:22, with Debbie Gibson next in 1:28:24. Yvonne Skelton was 1st F65 (no such category at Tad, but it’s a great achievement so it’s worth a mention) and finished in1:29:17. Christina Taylor was next in 1:32:39, followed by Hannah Peagram – running her first race since recovering from injury – who finished in 1:35:48.
Robert Hill was next in 1:36:07, and achieved 3rd M70, followed by Jane Wilkinson in 1:43:30. Michelle Smith crossed the line in 1:44:15, then Colleen Gruenwald in 1:46:19.
Graham Hyde was the next Nidd to get a new fastest time, as he crossed the line in 1:49:46, with Sylvia Morten next in 1:53:15.
Former Zip to Zoomer Fiona Cunningham put in a strong performance to finish in 2:04:27 and getting a new PB for her efforts!
