eP1520688aP1520564

Ronnie Sherwood equalled Rob Pollards record, both having now run 13 out of the 15 times the race has been run. As the race started the mist came down and the drizzle made for interesting post race discussions on what footwear was best.  Pro cyclist Catherine Williamson made a rare appearance to win the ladies race with Kay Neesam 3rd, Shelli Gordon 5th, Kath Aspin 6th and Jo Goldsmith 10th.  Jo knocked 3 minutes off her previous best for the race.  In the mens race Drew Graham was the winner, Andrew Oliver 39th and Ronnie Sherwood 90th, over 1 and half hours ahead of the final finisher. In the junior race New Marske fielded the only competitors, with good runs from Sam Garratt, Ben Bergstrand, Sarah McGough, Thomas Aspin & Rebecca Aspin.  Next race is the Guisborough Grunt + on Tuesday 9th August from the Rugby Club.

Cock Howe and Beyond - 12/07/2011

P1510652P1510716

Why don’t you have a go at this fell race, it’s only a short and easy one………  After three years of taking fell race pictures and watching Kath run I finally bit the bullet and ran one myself.   Looking at the course profile I am not sure about it being easy!

Elevation_Cock_Howe Starting at Chop Gate, the race started with one lap of the car park to thin out the pack prior to hurdling  a locked gate. The first 2k was straight up the hill to Cock Howe with little respite.  The next 6K looped over the moors with a gradual decent followed by a long steady incline back up to Cock Howe. The final 2k was a mad dash back down from Cock Howe.   Was it worth it?  Well the 3 bottles of wine for being 1st V40 helped!    In her first fell race since her marathon Kath came home 2nd lady (more wine!).  Making his debut in a New Marske shirt, David Heath finished 39th, Mick McGurk 52nd, Phil Miles 54th and Nick O’Grady 57th.  Next race is the Gribdale Gallop on Tuesday 26th July.   Fancy doing a fell race or seeing what it would be like?  If so, why not join one of our fell route recce’s.
