Bob Smith Handicap 2018. It was the marshals wot made it !

Another well attended and successful Harriers event held at the St Ives Estate Bingley on April 19th 2018 !

Nearly cancelled due to lack of marshals – 3 was really not enough, but thanks to the sterling efforts of those who knew which buttons to press a flood marshals came forward which, adding to the sunshine made for a stirring and enjoyable evening. The day was hot and dry with many red faces crossing the finish line !

Winner was Peter Ellerton, second was Theo Clay with Alison Franks placed third.

First back (junior ) was Katie Buckley with Bethan Buckley second and Alistair Truselle third

Fastest male (senior course ) Tim Midgley setting a new course record of 23.02 shaving six seconds off the previous. Fastest woman – Lesley Watson

Fastest ( junior course ) Rebecca Flaherty.

All this with a total turnout of 50 ( 40 Blue 6k route and 10 Orange 3k route ) Roughly the same as last year but with the high number of marshals, other helpers, supporters  and of course the weather it almost made for a festival atmosphere and showed the club, at local level, to the many other park users, in good light.

All the food, snacks and fruit was demolished and plenty of tea and coffee was consumed. After costs £25 went back into the club.

A massive thank you to all the marshals and helpers far too numerous to mention – did wonder whether there might be more marshals than competitors on the night! Special thanks to John and Tony for an excellent job timekeeping, never easy with high numbers coming in thick and fast and Martin Peace for the handicapping, registration , being a star runner himself and then awarding the prizes !

I`m afraid I won`t be available to organise the race next year so hopefully someone else can step forward, now that the race has essentially been restored.

Many thanks to everyone again.
