Kilburn Road Race, 10th July 2016

The Kilburn Road Race takes place during the Kilburn Feast, a fabulous weekend of fun in the welcoming and friendly village of Kilburn in North Yorkshire.  

 

This 7.2m undulating route was discovered by Stuart Pailor, the late HBRH Club President.  Stuart was notorious for creating tough running routes that tested even the most hardy of runner.  

 

Seventeen Burn Road Harriers were joined by equally as many Burn Road supporters which made for a great day.  First home in 11th place was Paul Wilson in 44:09.  A brilliant run from Paul which meant that the mens’ team were well on track for the team prize. 

 

Closely behind Paul in 12th position was Darren Armstrong in 44:16 after tracking Paul throughout the route.  Steve Morrison was a late entrant to the event and made a great decision to run, finishing in 46:55 for third Burn Road place.  Steve was joined shortly after by Gareth Foreman in a cracking time of 47:52 which secured the First Team Prize for the men.  This was a tough prize to win as there was some fierce competition.


Karl Edward nailed the first Vet 60 prize in 48:07, proving yet again that he is having an outstanding year.  He was joined shortly after by Mick Ludgate who knocked minutes of his 2015 time to be awarded with the first Vet 65 price in 52:50.


Bill Hornby was out again racing after the Red Kite trail race and completed the route in 54:16.  Dave Edwards was next in 55:23, a strong run from Dave.   Jo Beddow was first lady Harrier home after starting the route with her sister Jane, who dropped back to support a fellow Harrier who was under the weather.  Jo finished her first run around this route in 57:05.  Nigel Shaw was next over the hill into the speedy finish to the applause of the supporting Harriers in 58:38 with Simon Lawlor close behind in 59:13 to come under the one hour mark. 

 

Carl Marchant is slowly coming back to fitness after injury to finish with a smile in 62:29.  Jane Wistow accompanied Leigh Owbridge over the last four miles of the race after Leigh was unwell during the first few miles of the race.  Not taking any chances with illness in the heat, they both jogged steadily together to enjoy what was left of the race sensibly – which shows true grit and also the true spirit of the club members.  Both crossed the line together in 64:43.

 


Jan Naisbitt was next female Harrier to come into sight and with her usual effortless running style Jan crossed the line in 65:12.  Peter Johnson was hot on her heels to finish in 65:36.  Another late entrant to the run was Sam Dixon, who decided the night before to join the team the following day.  Sam completed the Burn Road team in 70:50.
