Yorkshireman Full And Half Marathon

What a fantastic weekend for Queensbury Runners competing in the Park Runs-Great North Run and the Yorkshireman Full and Half Marathon hosted by Keighley and Craven this race is well organized and well marshalled and a credit to the efforts of Keighley running members.

Lets start with the half Marathon which is 14.8 miles long starts with a climb to the withins from Haworth tough to say the least but a challenge met by Stacy Cleal and Matt Thornton both ran a great race and finished within a minute off each other.

Stacy was 100th overall in a time of 2.27.37

Matt was 104th overall in a time of 2.28.31

There were 254 runners in the half so Stacy and Matt were well up there well done.

 

Eight Queensbury runners attempted the full marathon seven completed the distance first home for Queensbury was Carl Heron another superb effort I think this is Carl’s favourite race he just keeps coming back followed by Philip Robinson who is in training for a triathlon had a great run Matt Fielding who had enough equipment on his back to get up mount everest and back ran a good steady race with a smile on his face well at least for the cameras Anna Smith strong as ever Anna just keeps going Chris Rushworth had a good steady run Chris just seems to get round even though his preparation has not been the best and for me I think someone shot me at 18 miles or that’s what it felt like so that was the end for me.

Graham Jowett and Karl Chamberlain ran the marathon in the pairs category Graham asked Karl if he would pair up with him in the marathon and Karl had no hesitation and said yes Karl promised not to do his usual and sprint off and I think he kept that promise although one of the pictures shows him going in front but I think that must have been to open the gates he he and as for Graham if you ever need inspiration look no further than Graham no challenge is too much he just keeps going and going even as I was writing this three days after the race Graham ran past the house with a back pack on waving and smiling and going at a good pace and no doubt ran to work that morning.

One final word I and other members have run for Queensbury for a long time and at no time have we experienced the support from other members like we did on Sunday they were popping up all over the place shouting support and taking pictures very humbling this shows that this club is going places so a big thank you from the runners.

Four QRC members joined a small cohort of 87 for the Tour of Norland Moor on Sunday. Congratulations to Stacey who was the 3rd placed female runner and 1st in the F45 category. All those long training runs are paying off. After a niggling injury, Mick had a good run and he was only 30 seconds behind last year’s time. Matt was not far behind and Mary, recovering from illness, came in just over the hour.

 

The men’s race was won by Rob James (Royton Road Runners) in 37.51. The women’s race was won by Stainland Lions’ Tanya Seager in 40.21. Tanya was placed 6th overall and is running so well that only the best male runners can beat her in her current form.

 

Position Name Time
22 Mick Coe 46.24 (2nd M50)
28 Matt Fielding 47.30
47 Stacey Cleal 53.03 (3rd Female and 1st F45)
73 Mary Saunders 62.32

 

The 10K Tour of Norland Moor fell/trail race is organized by Halifax Harriers and is a category BM race (according to the FRA, a category B race should average not less than 25 metres climb per kilometer and should not have more than 30% of the race distance on road; the M stands for Medium distance of 10-20 km).

The full results can be found here.

Updated Airedale Athletics points are here.  As the season enters its final month Mick has a narrow lead in the individual points table with Lee Hipwell and Matt Fielding also among the first ten runners. Many congratulations.

Pendle Three Peaks

pendle

Many congratulations to Mick Coe for his run at the very tough Pendle Three Peaks on 22 August.  His time of 2:08:16 over the 9.8 mile, 2,800ft course shows how challenging the event was: after an arduous route over terrain that is unlike anything in the local area the final ascent was the enormously steep Big End of Pendle Hill.

Mick is second in the individual league with an event in hand and several other Queensbury runners, especially Lee Hipwell, Graham Jowett and Matt Fielding, have had excellent races to move Queensbury into third team place as the season enters its final weeks.  Full results are here.

Podium 5K………in 16 minutes

Chris Williams recorded an outstanding personal best in the Podium 5K race near Colne at the weekend. He clocked 16:00 minutes dead beating his previous pb by one second set last year at the John Carr 5K. Most of us mere mortals can only dream of running at a pace of 03.12 mins per km or 05.09 mins per mile; actually, only a few hundred people in the entire nation have run a quicker 5K than that in 2015. Chris was 11th in a race that featured many of the quickest runners in the north west (the winning time was 14:58). The slowest runner in the ‘A’ race completed the course in 17:19 which is still a fantastic time. Chris also triumphed over Jonathan Johnson (Harrogate Harriers) who beat him into second place in the West Yorkshire 5 mile road race last week. Well done to Chris. We look forward to a sub-16 minute run in the next race!DSC_4853The full results are here.

Saltburn 10K

HMSALT 1_0499
Mary on the Saltburn Trail

Mary Saunders, who recently joined the club, ran in the Saltburn 10K in North Yorkshire on Sat 15th August. Recent illness interfered with her training plans but she still managed a good time, finishing in 1:17.36 and in about 18th place overall (10th woman). Mary also raised £280 for the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association. Here is her report:

 

The race was really small – there was a trail marathon (probably longer than a marathon!), a trail half marathon (that was about 16 miles), as well as the trail 10K and participation was capped at 300 across all three races – this meant for a really nice relaxed atmosphere – I think there were maybe 40 runners tops in the 10K.

 

The race started, in glorious sunshine, on the main road outside the Leisure Centre and continued to, and then down, the wooded sides of the Skelton Beck clough (where we all got lost), down to the sea front, past the Ship Inn and up an evil set of quad destroying steps! Then it was about 3km of more gradual climbing following the Cleveland Way, right along the top of the cliffs, on the edge of the wheat fields. We made our way along the side of the railway, before crossing it (lovely cheery marshals), up a hill, through a cow field and then turned back for the descent, crossing the railway again and following a series of tracks back down to the bottom of the steps. We then retraced our steps back up the clough and along the road, finishing in the sports hall. In total it was 11.99km (surprise, surprise!) and about 775 feet of ascent. 

 

There were medals and t-shirts for all finishers, trophies for the top three in the main categories and a fine spread of home bakes and drinks etc laid on in the hall. The shower and changing facilities were all very fancy too! The race is now moving to February due to car parking etc so I think I will have to enter again to better my time….
