Hello you lovely people.
How have you been?
It’s been a long time since we last rounded up some results. Christmas is now a mere memory and the first month of the year is nearly at a close.
Not much has been going on since Great Langdale was cancelled in December. Inskip Half Marathon was cancelled in January but the great people at Sport In Action managed to get the Resolution 10k underway on Sunday January 17th.
It was a lovely scenic run with the snow having set everywhere and there were a few PB’s out there which was definitely good going in the conditions.
Shout outs go to those who emailed with their results:
Kevin Scott finished in 39:49 in position 16. Kev was 3rd place in the over 40 category and bagged himself a Chivers Voucher in the process.
In her first competitive 10k Kathryn Holliday finished in 54:04
Beverley Armstrong crossed the line at 54:09
Hot on her heels was Mark Drummond achieving a 10k PB with a time of 54:09
Andrea Young finished in 56:17
Rachel Lee finished in 57:41
Louise Porter got a 10k PB with a time of 58:04.
The rest of the results can be found over at:
As discussed at the AGM all members should have received an email detailing the plans for supporting a charity throughout 2016. All members have a vote on which charity to support with the deadline being this Sunday 31st January so if you plan to vote you need to get on it straight away.
