March 21/22 Weekend roundup

Last weekend was the usual Harriers mix of superlative performances, PB’s and prizes but shock, horror, Dave and Jayne weren’t racing!

Coniston 14

First up was the Coniston 14 In the Lake District, much like Dave & Jayne’s Dentdale run, it’s a Half Marathon with 5% extra free thrown in. The course follows the roads around Lake Coniston which makes for splendid views.

There were four athletes making the trip north but only three managed to fit into their vests…we don’t name names that wouldn’t be fair on Nina’s fiancee.

Romping home in a superb 1.25:30, 2nd V45 and 9th overall was Andy Ratcliffe. Andy was well rewarded for is efforts, winning a fully fitted carpet with some running shoes thrown in.

Tim and Nina came in with an excellent 1.30:35 and 1.45:31 respectively and then enjoyed the rest of the weekend in the sunny lakes. Well done on those times.

For details of how Gary’s race went have a look at his detailed race report.

Well done for some superb running!

 

Fleet Half Marathon

Sunday was Half Marathon day. Heading south to Fleet was Dan Gray. Dan reported back that he struggled in the race, slowing down near the end but still managed an excellent 81.17, a time most of us only dream about! Well done Dan!

 

Wilmslow Half Marathon

Back nearer to home were seven Harriers competing at the Wilmslow Half. A very popular event that always sells out well in advance. Leading the Club home in a new PB was Chris Smullen, fantastic work! There were plenty more brilliant times….

Chris Smullen 80:11 PB

Warren Moorfield 87:43 PB

Paul Bryers 89:59 PB

Barry Abram 90:06

Julie Platt 91:36

Darren Jackson 96:17

Karen Schofield 1.42:00 PB

 

Well done everyone, four new PB’s overall, excellent work!
