Ricky Stevenson, Russ Best (pb) & Elliott Jackson(pb) were first three home in the Hartlepool Marina 5 mile race. Andy Chadfield from Marsh House spoiled the party by finishing fourth ahead of Alan Piggford(pb). Next New Marske finishers were Sarah Rogers(pb) 61st and Katie Coulson(pb)76th - John Rymer in his umpteenth comeback race was next in 95th. Completing the set of pb's were Michelle O'Grady, Diane Hall and Julian Wilkinson.
As part of her build up for the London Marathon, Sarah Rogers went to Humberside to compete in the East Hull 20 mile race. Her target time was 2hrs 30mins, and she actually ran 2:30:14 and in doing so broke the W35 Club record for 20miles. Roll on London!
At Trafford 10k Road Race Ricky Stevenson suffered a rare defeat to Jonny Taylor, but had the consolation of setting a new club record - taking it below 30minutes.
Taylor had great battle with African Edwin Kipkorir, losing out by just one second. The winning time was 29:12, Ricky was a further 14 seconds back in third, clocking 29:27.
Russ Best had another solid performance in 23rd position in a time of 31:38.
Mark Shaw and Charlie Pasco have both been selected to represent the North East in the London Mini Marathon next month. Well done to both of them!!
