ARC runners at Scorton 10k, 16th August 2015

16 Aug 2015 Scorton, Billingham , Pinchinthorpe and Hackworth.

Last Sunday several runners from the club took part in the Scorton Feast Memorial 10K. This new multi-terrain event was organised to raise money for Target Ovarian Cancer and Herriot Hospice Homecare.

Two of our members got prizes, Dez for coming in 1st in the 31-50 age group and 5th overall in the time 36:50 and Susan Milburn for being 1st lady over 55 and 42nd overall in 50:16.

Dave Blewitt was next finisher and was pleased with his time of 44:45 after being injured, in 22nd position followed by Steve Smith 26th in 46:22 and Penny Johnson, 55th in 53:25.

On the same day four Aycliffe athletes chose the Billingham Ray Harrison Memorial 10K for their event. It was a hot and sunny morning throughout the race, but this didn’t stop the runners giving a good account of themselves.

Mark Wade was first home for the club, 26th in 37:52, followed by Richard Campbell, 65th in 42:36, Trish Kay, 141st in 50:21 and finally Susan Clark, knocking a massive 97secs off her Darlington 10K.  Her time was 62:19 in 209th position.

The results for the Pinchinthorpe Tees Trail 5K race have finally arrived. This course is more or less one big climb and one big descent but otherwise conditions were ideal for running and there were some good age grade wins for the club.

John Burnside was first finisher for Aycliffe, 37th in 20:45 and 1st M/55, not bad considering he’s nearly 60. Followed by Cyd Upton, 47th in 22:12 and 1st F/50 and Alan Wilks, 52nd in 22:36.

Paul Stretton was next to cross the line, 55th in 22:50, followed by Julie Spring in her first trail race, 132nd in 30:02 and Ray Todd in his first outing for months because of injury, 153rd in 32:13.

Mark Wade won the Hackworth Parkrun in 19m30s.
