Weekly Round-Up

A great end to the 2016 HDSRL
The last of the 2016 Harrogate District Summer Road League races took place last Tuesday (28.06). This event had a handicapped start format which made for a rather hectic finish area! Based on actual times, Martin Brock was the first Strider across the line in 33:03, just staying ahead of Tom Calvert (33:17). Guy Close continued his ever improving 2016 form with a time of 34:16 and was closely followed by Rob Clarke (34:28), James Wright (35:28) and Dan Wilson (35:39). Nicola Carter completed the undulating course in 37:18 prior to collecting her Ladies V45 1st place trophy. Ian Mitchell (37:36) headed the rest of the Striders in attendance and was joined by Sima Lowery (37:54), Gareth Conkleton (38:07), Andy Robinson (38:38), Derek Calvert (39:51), Julian Carr (40:02), Sue Morley (45:29), Tony Everitt (46:53), Claire Killingworth (46:59), Natalie Hale (49:22), Tracy Allison (53:40) and Edna Wood (54:36).

A damp parkun day
A wet start to Saturday didn’t put off 18 Striders attending a parkrun, including 7 who visited the Oakwell Park event as part of the latest ‘First Saturday of the Month’ club visit. This parkrun, based at Birstall just off the M62, offered something a bit different to most of the parkuns in the area, sending runners through a mixed terrain and undulating course through a woodland setting. James Wright headed the Striders contingent, taking 4th place in 20:06. Nicola Carter was next, taking the 1st Lady placing with a time of 21:44. Ian Mitchell was next to complete the twisty course with a time of 22:28. He was joined by Julian Carr (23:55), recently joined member Mark Taylor (25:01), Edna Wood 31:54 and, after making a slight detour on the last lap (into a bog), Tom Burrell (35:25) completed the Striders line up. Watch out for details of where we will be visiting on the 6th August for our next club parkrun trip.

On the Stray, Gareth Conkleton (21:34) was first Strider across the line at the Harrogate event. Jason Green secured a PB with 21:46 and just behind was Andy Roberts (21:51). Graeme Kilvingotn, returning from injury, clocked 25:05 to finish just ahead of Paul Heywood (25:28). Katie Byrne secured a 33:26 and Emma Hall completed her 3 laps in 36:00.

An interesting battle is taking place between new member Rob Earl and Guy Close at parkrun. Both have recently dipped under the sub 19:00 mark and seem to be following each other around at recent events. This week they took on Fountains Abbey, with both securing PB’s. Rob stopped the timer on 18:30, with Guy following in 18:55. Sub 18 minutes this year chaps?

Tony Everitt ran at the Wetherby event and bagged a PB in a time of 27:10. Also achieving a PB was Sean Brennan who visited Dalby Forest and completed the course in 20:53.

Sunday = Raceday
Sunday was much drier for the six Striders out and about.

In the Lake District, James Warburton completed the full distance Windermere Triathlon in a time of 02:35:00 to take 7th place overall. Down in Derbyshire, Andy Robinson visited Chatsworth House – not as a tourist, but as a Triathlete! He took on the Peak District Sprint distance triathlon, finishing in 01:23:30.

Up in Newcastle, Nicola Carter took 2nd place in the V45 category at the Great North 10k. Finishing in the International Stadium at Gateshead, Nicola recorded a time of 44:00.

Closer to home, the club was represented at the annual Eccup 10 Mile race. Jason Green was the first Strider to collect his finishing t-shirt in a time of 01:16:17. Newly joined member David Halladay was just over t two minutes behind, finishing with the clock showing 01:18:47. Prolific racer Dawn Richardson completed the Striders line up, securing a time of 01:38:19.

‘Summer’ Road League and a trip to Dalby – Weekly Results

A bit wet for the ‘Summer’ road league
The 3rd race of the Harrogate District Summer Road League certainly didn’t have a Summer feel to it with cold, wet and windy conditions experienced up at Swaledale last Tuesday.

Club parkrun visit to Dalby
A 07:15am rendezvous didn’t put off 9 Striders heading over to the Dalby Forest on Saturday morning for the latest club parkrun trip. This new event (this was the 12th run) offers something a bit different to some of the more local parkruns.

Fun of the Fair at Harrogate

In Liverpool, three Striders went ‘Rock N Rolling” around the streets of Liverpool for 13.1miles. The event is part of the “Rock N Roll” Marathon series which hosts events worldwide including Las Vegas and Madrid. Andrea Price was first Strider back, crossing the line in 02:02:52.

A few mountains conquered – its the weekly round-up

It was the first Striders trip of the year this weekend, with 13 club members taking on events ranging from 5km to full triathlons, but there was also plenty of representation at parkrun events on Saturday morning and that’s where we start our weekly round-up.

parkruns galore
At Harrogate parkrun, Gareth Conkleton was first Strider back, finishing in a time of 22:37. He was joined by Paul Heywood (25:33), Anthony Everitt (27:04) and Tracy Allison (28:14).

Graham Yare recorded 20:25 at Andover (Hampshire) and Guy Close visited the fast course at Pontefract, completing the event in 19:13.

Keswick Mountain Festival Trip

The Keswick Mountain Festival in the Lake District was the event of choice for the first Striders trip of 2016. The weather forecast had been mixed in the build up to the event and it didn’t ‘disappoint’ with the weather throwing everything at the Striders in attendance over the weekend – especially for the ones camping!

The majority of those attending from the club arrived on Friday and were greeted with a night of rain and wind whilst watching the first music concert of the weekend, including the headliners ‘Bjorn Again’. After a bit of dancing (AKA dodging the rain), it was back to the campsite or for the lucky ones, a B&B!

The sporting events started on Saturday morning with the Short Triathlon kicking off at 8am. Natalie Hale represented the Striders in this event which was made up of a 400m swim in Derwent Water (a chilly 11c at the time), a 10 mile bike ride along an undulating course and a 5km run back to the festival area at Crow Park. Natalie completed the event in 01:42:57.

The morning weather gradually worsened and by the time the 25km trail race was about to start the heavens had opened! Six Striders were undeterred however and headed to the start line with trepidation of what was to come. A challenging, hilly course was expected (it’s the Lake District after all!) and a challenge was certainly encountered with a total climb of 2,537ft in the race overall. First back into the finish arena was Martin Brock, stopping the clock on 02:38:36. He was followed just over 7 minutes later by James Wright in 02:45:46. Stewart Hymas and new club member Jason Green had a good tussle (only 28 seconds between them), with both finishing just under the 3 hour mark in 02:59:25 and 02:59:53 respectively. Sue Morley was the first lady Strider back, finishing 2nd in her age category with a time of 03:37:14. Nicola Carter completed the Striders line up in the 25km event, crossing the line in 03:51:04 (and she was joined by Harrogate Harriers Sue Moul (03:51:10) and Jodie Perry (03:51:11)).

The weather had improved by early afternoon and was warm for the next event – a 5km trail race which took a route through woodland, before bringing the runners alongside the lake for the 2nd half of the race. James Warburton had a strong race to take 3rd place overall (great to see a Strider on the podium at the medal ceremony!) in a time of 21:37. He was followed by Andy Robinson who secured 6th place with a time of 22:49. Charlotte Hines represented the club for the first time at a race, stopping the clock on 31:27. Next back to the finish was Clare Rogers, who completed her first ever trail race in 38:05. James Wright went around the course with Clare to complete his double header for the day in a time of 38:06.

Calmer weather greeted Striders taking on events during Sunday. Starting at 8am, James Warburton took on the Long Triathlon which consisted of an 800m open water swim, 20 mile bike ride and a 10km trail run. James completed the course in 02:27:05 to take 9th place overall.

The final event of the weekend was the 10km trail race. A boat trip across the lake was required to get to the start area, giving participants an added bonus of seeing the fantastic views of the area from a different perspective. Andy Robinson secured 15th place overall out of 550 runners (and 2nd in his start wave) in a speedy 49:56. ‘Fresh’ from the 25km event on Saturday, Jason Green completed the course in 01:05:57 and was closely followed by Eric Morley (01:09:08), Charlotte Hines (01:10:04) and Mark Shelton (01:14:11). Emma Hall completed the Striders line up and her first ever 10km (could you have picked a tougher 10k event Emma?!) with a time of 01:45:44.

A fantastic weekend was had by all on the 2nd ever Striders weekend trip away. We have a further trip planned in September to the Equinox 24 hour race where we will compete as a team to complete as many laps of the 10km course as possible. If we can get at least a further four Striders signed up, we can take two teams. We will be heading down on the Friday afternoon (16/09) and returning on Sunday afternoon (18/09). If you don’t want to be involved in the relay team/s, you are more than welcome to join us and take on the individual 10km event or just come and be part of the support crew. Family and friends get into the event for free which includes camping. See James Wright at a club night for more information.

5k’s, 10k’s, 10 miles and a Triathlon – Striders taking on all distances

Eleven Striders made the short journey over to Leeds to take on the undulating course and were led home by James Wright (01:31:57). Nicola Carter and Sima Lowery had another close race, finishing in 01:41:19 and 01:41:33 respectively.
