Two of our members travelled down to Harewood House for last weekend’s races – a 10k and a half-marathon. Both courses were hilly and off road making them challenging events.
Louise Baker completed the 10k in a time of 1:02:55 and finishing in 623 place out of a field of 1,078. Kev Gaskill took on the half marathon and finished in 271st place out of 1,000 runners who finished.
These were both club championship races, and these results put Kev on top of both male competitions (as the only person to have competed in two races) and adds Louise to the female competitions. For the latest championship details, see Championship 2019.
This Saturday is the first of the four parkruns nominated in the 2019 championship at Fountains Abbey. One of these four parkruns can count towards the 6 championship races. We hope to see as many club members as possible there to enjoy one of the most beautiful parkruns in our area.
