Fourteen divided by Three
Three parkruns were visited by fourteen Striders this week but no one ventured to far!
Gary Wilkinson travelled down the A59 to York and completed the flat course in 22:53 to record a course PB.
At Fountains Abbey there was exactly 1 minute between the first two striders to cross the line. Niamh Falconer clocked 22:00 to finish ahead of FAbbey regular Derek Calvert (23:00). Bill Kirkpatrick, another regular visitor to this event, finished just over 10 minutes later with a time of 33:26.
Harrogate parkrun was descended upon by 10 Striders who were led home by Ian Mitchell (20:51). Joining Ian were Stephen Morland (22:30), Nicola Carter (22:48), Paul Heywood (24:53), Julian Carr (26:15), Anthony Everitt (27:36), Edna Wood (28:26), Tracy Allison (28:30), Fiona Burniston (33:28) and Deborah Goldfield (33:42).
Great running up in the Toon
Perfect running conditions greeted the 21 Knaresborough Striders in attendance at the Great North Run on Sunday. Tom Calvert secured a top 300 placing to lead the Striders contingent home in a time of 01:23:02. Joining him at the world’s biggest Half Marathon were James Wright (01:26:49), Dan Wilson (01:34:51), Jason Green (01:38:25), Simon Rider (01:42:32), John Slater (01:46:54), Dave Halliday (01:47:42), Debbie Herridge (01:57:51),Mark Taylor (02:00:18), Amy Naylor (02:08:35), Robert Whellens (02:14:38), Donna Rogers (02:16:00), Dawn Richardson (02:18:17), Sarah Hill (02:20:09), Kirsty Ramsey (02:20:16), Charlotte Hines (02:26:54), Lizzy Rose (02:36:26), Janet Morris (02:42:36), Steve Morris (02:45:34), Laura Bickerdale (02:54:58) and Emma Hodson (03:08:29).
Running down the Vale of York
At the Vale of York Half Marathon, Guy Close secured a Personal Best over the 13.1 mile distance to finish in 01:24:38. Gary Wilkinson (01:47:28) was the next Strider across the line at the Sherburn in Elmet based event and was chased down by Zero to Hero graduate Claire Baxter who completed her first half marathon in 02:07:01 – amazing considering she hardly run at all prior to taking part in the Zero to Hero course in January! Christina Tremayne and Kirsty Jones ran the course together to stop the clock on 02:39:08 to complete the Striders line up. Look forward to seeing all of the t-shirts at training tomorrow night!
