Well done to everyone who turned out, fantatic results all round. Notable mentions to Ian Harkness for a third place finish and Philippa Wakefield for a first female finish.
These results were compiled and sent to me by DH Runners’ men’s team captain Andy Baker. So a big thanks to him for that. On the other side of the coin, if these results are wrong in any way or you are missing the finger of blame points firmly at Andy (sorry Andy).
Next week we have participation in the Carlisle Tri-Club Triathlon. This is held at Richard Rose Morton Academy (The former Morton School). If you can get down to support it would be very much appreciated. Also, if you’re in a position to marshall the Tri-Club are still looking for a little help. If this is something you’re interested in then let me know and I’ll put you in touch.
We are also holding our Magic Mile event on Wednesday August 5th. This will be held, as always, at The Sheepmount at a cost of £1 to non-members and free to club members. If you’re intending on coming please sign up to the events page on facebook at this link (https://www.facebook.com/events/483458978495634) to give us an idea of numbers. Please arrive at 6pm for registration with the intent of the first wave getting off at 6:30pm.
Further into the week we will have club participation in the London Triathlon on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August.
If you’re training for any events in autumn then it might be worth trying to get down to our Wednesday night track sessions at The Sheepmount. All sessions are based on your level of ability. Come down and give it a try we promise to be gentle (maybe). Pay at The Sheepmount reception or scan your Lifestyle membership card if you have one.
Until next week, happy running.
Go Hard Or Go Home.
Wednesday 22nd July 2015
Welcome to another weekly catch-up.
This one will be a collation of events over the past two weeks.
As always we’ll start with Carlisle parkrun. 11th July saw a cancellation for parkrun so with the return on 18th July saw PB’s for Stephen Weston, David Macnaughton, Richard Henry, Jenna Mulvey, Kate Whalen, Olly Ewbank, Nicola Jackson and Simon Dolman. We also saw the emergence of a young Ellis Graves on to the league table. There’s no doubting he’ll soon be hot on the heels of his dad Paul.
On July 11th we saw DH Runners take part in the Ullswater Triathlon
Andrew Graham and Kev Mulvey were taking part in the individual tri with Andrew finishing in 2:50:43 at position 80 and Kev finishing at 2:58:30 in position 101.
In the relay Kathryn Osborne teamed with Andy Baker and DH Runner for the day Heather Burridge. Katrhyn did the swim section with Heather on the bike and Andy on the run. The team finished in a time of 3:14:38. Impressively Heather stopped during her bike section to perform first aid.
While the team of Sarah Hamilton (Swim), Adrienne Harris (Bike) and Nina Errington (Run) completed in a time of 3:42:19.
Sunday 12th July saw Susan Fawkes take part in the Shock Absorber Women Only Challenge Duathlon at Dorney Lake. Finishing in a time of 1:26:23 Susan finished seventh overall. Absolutely smashed it.
Paul Graves and Ian Harkness were flying the DH Runners flag in Moffat for the Moffat Gala 15k on Tuesday 14th July. Paul finished in a time of 53:41 in 2nd place with Ian following up in 4th place with a time of 56:23. Paul said afterwards “It was a superb event, challenging course with an amazing 4.5 mile downhill finish! It seems to be a major highlight in the Moffat calendar so it seems the whole town come out to support it. “ Paul has also laid the challenge down to get some more DH Runners to take part next year. ..watch this space.
Upcoming we have participation in the X Border 10k from Gretna to Carlisle this weekend, the Regents Park 10k in that there London also this weekend as well as Carlisle Tri-Club Triathlon on 2nd August and London Triathlon on 8th August.
If you have an event coming up let me know and I’ll add it to the list.
Go hard or go home.
Happy Running. Steve.

Welcome to another Weekly Round-up where we’ll start as always with Carlisle parkrun.
PB Congratulations this week go to Ian Harkness, Sandra Kay, Andy Shannan, Sophie Wardle, Sarah Wardle, Rebecca Birkett and Daisy Graham. Well done guys.
Reminder, there is no Carlisle parkrun this Saturday (July 11th) so, if you can, why not have a bash at some tourism and visit Penrith, Keswick, Workington or Barrow?
Just one set of results from last week that I know of and that is from the gang of DH Runners who headed down to Gateshead to take part in the Great North 10k.
On telling me of their race Simon and Lindsay mentioned that they are massively proud of the fact they were first male and female DH Runners to finish.
Lindsay Graham: 53:30
Simon Dolman: 57:31
Nina Errington: 59:16
Anna Rawling: 1:01:01
Adrienne Harris: 1:03:21
Kate Whalen: 1:05:01
Nicola Jackson: 1:05:38
Paula Thanner: 1:06:05
Helen Cupac: 1:06:06
Louise Porter: 1:06:15
Carol Thompson: 1:07:46
Mark Drummond: 1:09:45
Kathryn Osborne: 1:11:01
Gordon Beattie: 1:11:26
Lucy Jackson: 1:12:13
Frances Braithwaite: 1:13:13
Kirsty Mahoney: 1:15:45
Well done everyone. It was a hot one last Sunday so massive congrats to all.
Simon has written a great blog piece about this run which can be found at this link.
Just a point of order again, please, please, please can you ensure that you sign up as DH Runners when signing up to races. If you don’t you show up as unaffiliated or in Kate’s case end up being shown running for some completely different club altogether. Also, it helps me when compiling these results as I can do a search on the club name and everyone comes up in one go and saves me a trawl through and trying to remember who has competed. I’d hate to compile a list of results and miss people out so the best way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to sign up to races as a DH Runner, email DHRunnerSteve@hotmail.com and/or contact us via the contacts forms at DHRunners.org
Upcoming we have attendance at Ullswater Triathlon, Go-Tri at Keswick, Regents Park 10k and the X Border 10k.
Also, next Saturday is the Cure Rett Fundraiser at Morton Manor. If you still haven't decided on whether you're coming or not now is the time to make your mind up as I need to confirm numbers with the manor this weekend. Be there or be a rhomboid.
Wherever you're running this week enjoy it. Cheers, Steve.
