North of England Indoor Championships
Report by Charlie Burke
January 13th / 14th 2018
Our destination on Saturday was the English institute of Sport in Sheffield for Jordan Thrower to take part in the above championships. Becky Tilley had arrived earlier and already run her heat of the 300m. Becky ran a time of 48.39 but unfortunately this didn’t qualify her for a run in the final. Well done to Becky for representing the club and entering this extremely tough championships. The next day (Sunday) Charlotte Bennett ran in the U17 ladies 800m, her first 800 of her new age group. Charlotte ran really well to run second in her heat in a time of 2-30.93 to qualify for the final, in which she finished 6th. Later on Saturday it was Jordan’s turn to compete in the U17 ladies triple jump. Training had suggested that Jordan was ready for 11m+ in competition. She was not disappointed and opened her competition with 11-05m. Jordan then followed this with identical jumps in rounds two and three of 11-20m a new personal best. Round four saw her shortest jump of the competition of 10-89m. Into the fifth round and the best jump of the series of 11-23m, another PB, which consolidated her silver medal position, 4 cm behind the gold !! Round six produced 10-99, still her fourth best ever jump. An excellent competition, well done Jordan.
Brass Monkey Half Marathon - 14/01/18
Another sell out race at the 2018 Brass Monkey Half Marathon. The runners were greeted with almost perfect running conditions given the time of year, with just a slight headwind going out. Lewis Gamble-Thompson was upfront from the start coming home in a great 4th place with a PB and his 1st sub 70 Half Marathon. New Marske Ladies were just edged out for the ladies team prize but Kay, Sharon and Kath all picked up place prizes. Ronnie was 1st 75+ home. Plenty of PB's and hopefully the start of another great running year.

Moles round the track.
Since the track tidy up day back in October, Moles had been attempting to re cover the outside lane of the track in earth. There is an old wives tail that moles have a strong sense of smell and will move away from strong fragrances. It would appear that the Guisborough Moles are immune to Peppermint, as putting peppermint oil along the side of the track has had no effect (other than leaving the remembrance of Polo Mints).
Charlie Burke suggested that Moles are sensitive to vibration, so we are now trialing children’s wind mils along half of the sprint track in an attempt to drive the velvet coated menace away. (It is not a children’s party gone wrong).
