Comfortable Win for Dom


Dom Shaw ran a cracking race - going off hard from the start and opened up 50m gap within the first kilometer which was never threatened, finishing with a time of 15:43 His winning margin was 20s easing down from his New Marske clubmate Alan Piggford, who is steadily getting back to his best, having taken a few years away from the sport to concentrate on studies and work. There was a good battle for the leading lady to finish - Morpeth pair Melissa Turner and Sarah Wilkinson matched strides for the opening lap, but with about a mile to go Melissa struck for home and finished in 17:28, 9s ahead of her clubmate.

Redcar Half Marathon

Well done to everybody who completed the Redcar Half Marathon and thanks to those who volunteered to marshall, man the water station or other duties.  Having manned the water station for the first time I think it may have been easier to run the race!

Melmerby 10k and Fun Run


Run on quiet country lanes both the 10K and the 2.25 mile fun run started from the friendly village hall at Melmerby near Ripon.  Part of the Yorkshire Dales Race Series the 10K race attracted 229 runners but only one from New Marske this year.  Strong winds hampered the runners on parts of the course with the wind never managing to be a tail wind.  The narrow lanes and tall hedges in places made it warm going, but villagers dished out wet sponges every 2K.  In the fun run 9 yr old Thomas Aspin managed 2nd in the U11 boys race and 11 yr old Rebecca Aspin did well in the U14 girls race.  Dave Aspin managed 40:33 in the 10K.

Edinburgh Marathon


Having read many of the reports from previous years from local clubs there had been mixed reviews of the Edinburgh Marathon.  However, with the exception of limited viewing areas in the home straight, the organisation went well.    The weather forecast in the lead up to the race was concerning with gale force winds and rain predicted.  The organisers had two starts.  One for the faster runners and one for the slower runners, starting 10 minutes apart.  This appeared to work well with plenty of room in the pens and adequate toilet facilities.  Messages on the tannoy warned of expulsion from the race for anybody found in the bushes! A brief rain shower just before the race cooled the runners down.  Those that ran the race told me that it was scenic, most of it being along the sea front.  The last 8 miles proved very challenging with the runners turning to run directly in to the wind which increased as the race progressed.  All the Harriers had good runs with PB’s for some despite the wind.
