Sharpening Up

A weekend of running results this weekend starting off with the Wombwell 5 near Barnsley and a very hilly run saw Claire Pickersgill finish as 8th lady in a time of 34.59.  Claire has had a pesky returning calf injury but her strength on the bike sees her in good form still for running and the up and coming European Duathlon Champs at Kalkar in April!

Up to Ilkley and the Ilkley Moor fell race – 8k and 401m of climbing – was held on Sunday.  Tim Ashelford popped in to take part in the tough race finishing 123rd overall and 6th in his age category 🙂

New athlete to the team Gordon Kilroy started off the year well at the infamous Brass Monkey Half Marathon in January with a cracking time of 1:19:49, 78th overall and 18th in the Vet 40 category.  This is a PB for Gordon – Gordon believes it was the overindulgence at Christmas which gave him the rocket fuel on the day!

Lastly, Jonny McLean had a great run at the Dewsbury 10k last week in a speedy time of 36:55.

Flying starts to the new season 🙂
