Race Reports

Great North Run, 19th September 2010

Mark Calvert was first home for the club in a pb time of 1:31:49, and in 788th position.  Sarah Black had a good race, running an excellent 1:39:00.   Graham Stevens was next, with a time of 1:41:35.

 

Sam Crooks recorded a time of 1:53:54 knocking over 8min off her previous GNR time.  Peter Johnson was disappointed with his time of 1:54:09, after making the mistake of hoping his injured calf would hold up to the rigours of 13 miles on the road. 

 

Tracey Rudd ran a very good 1:57:10 and finished just ahead of Julie Baldwin in 1:57:12, who managed not to get lost this year, and Keeley Brand, who ran 1:57:13.  Jon Bathe was happy with his time of 1:57:58.

 

Next to finish was Angela Lawlor who ran 1:58:20, closely followed by David Wallace in 1:58:39.  Debbie Corbett, still recovering from her recent illness, finished in a creditable 1:58:58.

 

Steve Howe’s recent return to training after several years meant that he was able to run over 1 min 30 sec a mile quicker than last year and finish in 2:05:26.  Julie McGrath’s finishing time was 2:0:24.

 

Also running were Pauline Ranson who did 2:17:56, Daniel Barker-Platt who ran 2:26:16, and Andrew Cosgrave who finished in a time of 3:05:29.

 

There were 39,437 finishers in total, which was an event record, for the 30th running of the race.  

Nottingham Marathon, 12th September 2010

There were 3 Burn Road athletes who made the long journey to Nottingham for the Marathon and Half Marathon races that are part of the Robin Hood Festival of Running 2010.

 

Paul Wilson ran the full marathon and finished in 13th place in a superb time of 2:54:05.  Just behind Paul, Bryan Astill was 1st V40 finisher in 2:54:11 and 14th position.  There were 1,567 runners who completed the marathon course.

 

Dave Lake competed in the Half Marathon event and recorded a time of 1:29:21, finishing 155th out of 6,143.

Sedgefield Serpentine, 12th September 2010

Andrew Minister competed in the Sedgefield Serpentine Trail Race and finished in 6th place out of 123 in a time of 38:52 over the 6.5mile distance.

Tees Pride 10K, 5th September 2010

There were 2,677 finishers in the Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10K race, with Ian Hudspith from Morpeth Harriers winning for the 3rd time in a row in 30:51, on a fine but windy day.

 

First home for Burn Road was Andy Kelly who finished in 41st place in a time of 36:46.  Although Andy is a vegetarian, he has recently been spotted hunting down buffalo as he has heard it is a good source of iron (hunting is a bit of an exaggeration, he was actually trying to get the attention of a stallholder at the  Marina Farmer’s  Market!)

 

Mark Calvert recorded another pb with an excellent 40:57, over 2 minutes quicker than his last race over 10km.  Next in was Trevor Sherwood who ran 43:12 and was under the important 7 minutes a mile barrier.

 

 Angela Lawlor’s time of 53:07 was within a second of last year’s time, but she admitted to making it hard for herself by running the first 2km at 7minutes a mile pace, and then finding it hard from 7km to the finish.  Pauline Ranson had a good run to finish in 57:04, and Julie McGrath completed the course in 61:38.
