It was a busy old weekend for the DH'ers last weekend.
We had runners at Lorton 10k, Coniston 14, Wilmslow Half, Lincoln 10k and Trimpell 20 as well as those at Carlisle parkrun and some parkrun tourism going on.
At Carlisle parkrun we had PB's from Tony Mills, Mitchell Carruthers, Wayne Watson, Jon Haymes, Diane Ackley, Nicola Jackson, Lucy Jackson and Joanne Graves. Well done all. While over at Lincoln parkrun Simone Rouse was stretching her legs before the Lincoln 10k the next day.
On Saturday in Lorton (near Cockermouth) we had representation from a number of runners. Mike Holmes finished with a time of 56:37 for a 10k PB. Andrea Young finished with a time of 1:01:56. Sara Milburn was next with a time of 1:08:45. Gillian Holmes bagged a time of 1:13:12 and Emma Richardson finished with a time of 1:18:28. Well done guys.
While over at Coniston Lindsay Mechie was taking part in the Coniston 14. Finishing in position 112 with a time of 1:37:11. Lindsay said that the course was quite hilly but the food at the finish line was excellent.
Sunday saw a few DH'ers up and down the country.
In Lincoln Simone Rouse was taking part in the City of Lincoln 10k. Simone managed a PB with a great time of 43:40 finishing in position 422. This knocked just over two minutes off her previous PB of 45:52 which was achieved at the start of the year at the Carlisle Resolution 10k.
Wilmslow half saw representation from Paul Graves, Michael Irving and Ian Harkness. Paul finished in a time of 1:12:20 in position 33. Michael finished in position 62 with a time of 1:16:31 and Ian finished in position 74 with a time of 1:17:50. Top running there guys.
A bus of DH Runners, meanwhile, were heading towards Lancaster for The Trimpell 20. The 20 in the title being 20 miles. This was being used by most (if not all) as a training run for Manchester, London and Edinburgh marathons.
Next over the line was Mark Story at 2:31:12 closely followed by Joanne Hazell at 2:31:34.
Another tag team followed with Andrew Graham at 2:36:03 being tailed by Tony Mills at 2:37:00.
Some were happy with their outing and some weren't. The heat on the day was a bit of a shock to the system to be honest. I'll be writing about Trimpell in more detail on my blog so keep a look out for that.
If you're doing anything event wise over the next few weeks be sure to let me know so you can feature in the weekly round up.
A group of us are heading down to Lancaster again for the Three Bridges 10k on 12th April. Club Captain Andy Baker has all the details and there may still be places available if you're quick.
Hopefully I haven't missed anyone out but if I have then please remember to email email@example.com or fill out our tell us how you got on/record a PB forms in our members area to ensure that no-one will get missed out in the future. The weekly round-up is usually compiled on a Tuesday or Wednesday so as long as I have your details before then you should be featured.
Until next time, Happy Running.

Welcome again to DH Runners’ weekly round-up.
There were a few events taking place over the weekend that we had some participation in.
Over at Silverstone Sarah Hamilton was embodying the spirit of namesake Lewis by powering to a half marathon PB of 2:16:29 at the 13th Adidas Silverstone Half Marathon.
News on the grapevine is that Sarah was outsprinted to the finish by a minion.
Sarah said that the race was great and well organised but it was a shame it was so far away.
Carlisle, well Kirkbampton, was the location for the Carlisle Tri Club’s duathlon. Taking part for DH Runners were Kev Mulvey, Steve Claringbold, Lucy Lamb, Philippa Wakefield and Neil Scott. DH Runners’ close ties with Carlisle Tri Club also saw a host of our club members lining the course as marshals. On behalf of the club we thank them for their stirling and professional efforts and encouraging words. Events can be tough for the competitors taking part but these guys stood on the side-lines for the better part of 2 ½ hours while people were out on the course. Also, many thanks go to Carlisle Tri Club and their volunteers for organising the event.
The times were as follows:
Kev: First Run; 16:29, Cycle; 48:54, Second Run; 18:34. Total: 1:23:57
Lucy: First Run; 17:50, Cycle; 51:20, Second Run; 19:05. Total: 1:28:15
Steve: First Run; 19:41, Cycle; 55:41, Second Run; 23:35. Total: 1:38:57
Philippa: First Run; 16:12, Cycle; 1:05:53, Second Run; 17:35. Total: 1:39:40
Neil: First Run; 22:01, Cycle; 1:03:07, Second Run; 26:54. Total: 1:52:02.
Congratulations to Lucy who came third in her age category for a place on the podium.
It’s great to see so many club members branching out into other disciplines and I’m sure there will be a number of club members participating in the upcoming Carlisle Tri Club Triathlon in August, you can enter here
A few things to mention before signing off;
We have a Wednesday track session at 6:30pm at The Sheepmount which is worth coming down for to work on speed and endurance. If this is something that interests you and you'd like some more info then feel free to drop Andrew and/or Steve a message.
And finally, a notable minor mention for the moment (there will be a full news report on this at a later date) goes to Direct Rail Services Ltd who have agreed to fund level one coaching for Andrew, Kev and Steve.
Next up on the calendar is a club outing to The Trimpell 20 miler this Sunday starting off from Salt Ayre Leisure Centre at Hest Bank. If you are heading to events in the near future it might be worth mentioning it to a run leader and seeing if there is a club contingent heading down, if there is there’s every chance there will be a bus or a lift available.

DH Runners were out in force again this weekend.
A record breaking attendance of 212 parkrunners at Carlisle this weekend resulted in PB’s for: Lucy Jackson, Nicola Jackson, Mark Drummond, Karen Rome, Ruth Woodhouse, Rebecca Wilson, Tony Mills, Lindsay Mechie and Michael Irving. Well done guys!!!
While over at the Sheepmount on Saturday afternoon we saw the return of The Magic Mile. 36 souls braved the less than favourable conditions to post times. You can find the results of that here.
This event also saw the debut of a kids lap which went down a treat with the kids. There will be another magic mile soon so watch this space.
On Sunday we saw attendances at Haweswater Half Marathon and Dalemain Marmalade Run.
Haweswater saw the debut DH Runners performance of one Kevin Scott who, for the second year running, was one place behind his namesake Kevin Scott of Eden Runners. Call it kismet, call it déjà vu but I think it’s just plain SPOOKY!!! Kevin finished in a time of 1:29:38 at position 58. Tony Carrigan finished at position 383 with a time of 2:00:42. Notable mention also to David Liddle finishing in a time of 1:28:53 at position 50 who will be joining us in April.
Dalemain 10k also saw a debut for DH Runners this time from Stu Windsor finishing a very respectable third in 43:24. Following an impressive outing in Blackpool, at the Great North West Half Marathon, Michael Story finished in 20th place with a time of 48:17. Kev Mulvey, meanwhile, made a return to action with a time of 49:10 finishing 23rd. Andy ‘The Schofe’ Baker followed up his Blackpool Half PB with a time of 1hr 23seconds at 97th place.
First DH Runner female over the finish line was Simone Rouse with a time of 53:53 finishing in 51st place. Susan Fawkes and Natalie Kay were next with times of 1:04:36 and 1:04:47 respectively (126th and 128th place). Andrea Young finished at 175th place with a time of 1:13:28 and Adrienne Harris finished with a time of 1:16:28 at 191st place. A big shout out goes to Louise Smith who has been making a return to running with our Thursday night beginners group. Louise finished in a time of 1:17:49 at position 198 for, what I’ve been told, her first competitive outing since 2011. Great work Louise.
A brilliant outing for all involved it seems.
I’ve heard great things about the Dalemain 10k from those who took part in 2014 and those who took part over the weekend so I’m hoping to be having a go at it myself next year and possibly take the boy along for the fun run in the process. Road Trip anyone?
If there was such a thing as DH Runner of the week (which there isn't, but if there was) then it would go to Wayne Watson. Wayne is having a great year so far, having smashed his half marathon and 5k (parkrun) PB's Wayne went on to batter his mile PB at the magic mile this weekend. Surely a marathon attempt is on the cards Wayne?
I also received an email in the inbox from an Akofa Kosi advising me of my late uncle's inheritance. I informed him that he was incorrect and asked him if he had recently taken part in any running events and if he had any PB's to report. He has yet to reply...
Coming up we have participants in the Carlisle Tri Duathlon in Kirkbampton (still time to enter - http://www.carlisle-tri.co.uk/carlisle-duathlon/) and a team outing to the Trimpell 20 miler (still time to enter - http://www.runningdiary.co.uk/race/trimpell-20)
Do you have an event coming up?
We also have a group page on Strava which shows some of the runs and routes that we’re going on during the week. If that tickles your fancy then sign up here (http://www.strava.com/clubs/dh-runners-108223)
Finally, a big shout out goes to our weekend warriors who were out and about doing their training runs in less than favourable conditions again. Keep putting in the hard work and you’ll reap the rewards come race day.
