Scarborough Cross Country, 24th October 2010

In the men’s race over 4 laps and approximately 4.5 miles, Vaughan “Lenny” Godber again had an excellent run, finishing in 10th place and a time of 27:18.  Paul Wilson was just behind in 12th position and 27:26. 


Kev Stephenson headed a group of 4 who were within 30 seconds of each other and was 21st in 28:28.  Davey Lake was next in 28:31 (23rd), followed by Bryan Astill in 26th and 28:44.  Keith Galbraith was 32nd in 29:01.


Dave Edwards was next back in 45th position and 30:54.  Peter Johnson was reasonably happy with his run after injuring his hamstring the previous weekend and had a time of 35:07.  Stephen Armstrong ran a time of 36:11.  The distance to travel and the weather seems to have put a lot of runners off and there were only 71 finishers in the men’s race.


In the Ladies race Tracey Waller was 2nd in a time of 21:11, beaten only by U20 star Kate Avery who is ranked 1st in the UK for her age at 5km in 2010.

Mark Calvert ran the BUPA Great South 10 mile race at Portsmouth and did a time of 64:11, finishing in 161st position out of 14,901 finishers.  This was Mark’s first race over the distance so was automatically a pb, he also picked up a pb at 10K of 38:59 along the way!


The course was described as fast and flat and run in perfect conditions, the winner Joseph Ebuya from Kenya achieved a UK 10 Mile All-Comers record, running an incredible 45:16.
