Results Roundup – Wednesday 17th October 2018

Good evening, here are all the latest club results.

It’s been a few weeks since I last sent any out and there has been lots going on. I haven’t included any parkrun times due to the number of races over the last three or four weeks.

These aren’t in any particular order and hopefully everyone who has raced has got a mention…….

Beck Busters 10k
This is a new multi terrain 10km race starting and finishing in the picturesque village of Bishop Monkton and raising funds for the local primary school. Although it’s not in the club champs, it’s great to support a local event and hopefully there will be many more in the years to come.

A scenic route no doubt, with a bit of a splash through the beck at the end. Here are the finishing times:

Martin Lofthouse 40:44
James Braddon 45:31
Damien Handslip 50:37
Emma David 51:14
Moira Mctague 58:50
Debbie Handslip 1:01:00
Jane Hill 1:05:23

Lockton Limping
This fell event was organised by York Knavesmires Harriers, and is part of the Dave Parry winter series. It’s ‘BM’ category fell race with 1083 ft of climb over 6.5 miles, around the locality of the village of Lockton, not far from Pickering. Six runners from NVRR took part in this, here’s how they finished:

Luke Wakelin 56:57
Eduardo Piano 57:12
Nigel Scaife 60:24
Chris Beattie 68:24
Jane Evans 69:24
Phil Robinson 69:27
Fiona Robinson 102:20

Hodgson Brothers fell relay
Staying in the fells, or the Lakeland fells to be more precise, 8 runners represented the club at the recent Hodgson Brothers fell relay event. A tough race right in the heart of the Lake District with around 70 teams taking part, made up of many seasoned and hardcore fell runners. The NVRR team consisted of the following pairs:

Cath Barber & Phil Ventress, Lee Welsby & Simon Harris, FRP Robinson & Chris Beattie, Carol Morgan & Luke Wakelin.

The team put in a cracking effort to finish in a total combined time of 6:27:08.

Reservoir Dogs Ultra
A local ultra-event encompassing the likes of Fewston, Swinsty and Scargill reservoirs along its 35 mile route. With roughly 3100ft of climb during the race, it’s a challenge for even the most experienced runner. Luckily Nidd Valley had sent its ‘elite team’ along for this one!

Phil Ventress 7:16:07
Jeff Walker 8:26:35
Andy Peagram 8:36:26
Fozzy Forster 8:58:15

Bridlington bus trip
The annual bus trip to Brid was once again very successful, and the cold start in the morning made way for some brilliant sunshine for the race. Conditions for the half marathon were almost perfect, and there was a good contingent of black and gold vests in and amongst the 400 or so runners taking part. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we even had representation at the 1 mile fun run!

Richmond Castle 10k
People always do this race, say they hate it, and then come back again the following year – there’s no real explanation for this, it just happens. This year’s event was no exception as many a hardened Richmond veteran returned to have another crack at the ‘undulating’ course, with the cobbles near to the finish at the castle entrance extra greasy this year as it rained pretty much all day. Considering it was the weekend of the York marathon, NVRR still managed to get 18 runners to this one. A great effort all round considering the dire conditions!

Martin Lofthouse 41:15
Steve Turner 44:44
Christine Holleran 50:38
Paul Manning 52:39
Christine Jones 54:01
James Barnett 54:07
Debbie Gibson 55:34

Jane Wilkinson 1:04:11
Graham Hyde 1:05:32
Sarah Chalmers 1:08:46
Fiona Robinson 1:09:51

Yorkshire 10 mile
10 miles is a good distance for racing, it could be argued that it’s a bit more appealing than 26.2 miles! Here are the Yorkshire 10 mile finishers:

John Beaumont 1:08:50
Maurice Kelly 1:17:49
Bec Carman 1:33:41
Lorna Eley 1:36:35
Kirsty O’Donnell 1:45:07
Michelle Dinsdale 1:54:18
Fiona Cunningham 1:58:00

Yorkshire Marathon
Running a marathon is a challenge for anybody, regardless of their experience or fitness. The time and effort that is put in by an individual to prepare for race day is a true show of commitment, and can push people to their limits. Race day itself always comes around quicker than expected and a fitful night’s sleep is pretty much guaranteed beforehand, and the day will present other unexpected challenges that one cannot simply prepare for. The weather last Sunday at York was not ideal to say the least, certainly not for running 26.2 miles in, but people did, and they finished. From our club, we had 8 runners who all ran brilliantly – I’m sure they will share with you their own experiences of the day, both positive and negative!

Adam Kirk 3:10:37
James Cook 3:27:36
Emma Dooley 3:42
Brian Hainsworth 3:47:48
Sarah Hughan 3:53:40
Robert Hill 4:37:44
Marcos Montana 5:05:52
Jane Hill 5:03:26

Lakes in a Day
I only heard about this race the other day, so here is some blurb taken straight from the event website:

‘50 miles, 4000m ascent – a journey on foot from the very top of the Lake District at Caldbeck to the very bottom, at Cartmel, via the stunning Helvellyn Ridge and the western shoreline of Lake Windermere. It might not be the easiest traverse but it will be the most spectacular!’

A cracking route by all accounts – runners are unsupported, and there are three decent feed stations along the way. Again the (very wet) weather played a huge part in this event, so much so that the race was delayed for a while at one point due to a river bursting its banks! A diversion had to be quickly sorted out by the organisers and the runners were on their way again after about 25 minutes.

Carol Morgan naturally took these conditions in her stride, finishing as 2nd lady in a total time of 14hrs 11 mins 14 secs.

Next year’s event is on the 12th October and entries open 5th November if anyone’s interested……

Roche Abbey Autumn Trail Run
There were various distances to choose from at this event organised by Its Grim Up North Running. Fozzy Forster ran the half marathon event and finished in 2:11:11, while in the 20 mile event, Jeremy Scott crossed the line in 3:51:59. Also running in the 20 mile event was Matt Wilkinson – he finished in a time of 2:26:36, finishing in 1st place!!

Other races
At the Chester Marathon, Andy Todd put in an absolute storming effort to finish in 2:59:11 while at the Grewelthorpe multi terrain race Mark David finished in 70:28 and Sarah Chalmers in 1:03:52. James Braddon finished 6th overall at the Beeston 10k in a time of 43:12, while FRP Robinson was the sole Nidd at a very wet Rombalds Romp fell race in Ilkley, finishing in a time of 1 hr 25 mins.

Great running by all!

Jonathan.
