10ks, a fell race and an epic walk

GaryOn August 1st nine Swaledale Runners took part in the Darlington 10K, showing that not all our members are averse to running on flat tarmac! Results: Andrew Fletcher 44.29, James Cunnache 46.48, Mark Smith 47.25, Grace Gilpin 49.10 (2nd FV60), Annelie Whitfield 49.35 (3rd FV55), Niall Cheyne 50.07, Rebecca Pickles 51.28, Suzanna Allen 56.11, Carrie Morrell 1.06.39. On the same day Jo Coates travelled further afield to take part in the York 10K, which she finished in 1.17.52.
Like many club members, Avril Thresh has developed a taste for ultra-distances this year. She took part in the multi-lapped Saturn 50K in Durham, putting in a strong performance to finish in 6.36.26.
Over the same weekend Gary Young set himself the challenge of walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall in one continuous outing. Supported by family and stalwarts Ros and Neil, he completed the 142K walk in an impressive if exhausting 32.34.17.
In contrast, Tim Grimwood tackled the BOFRA Farleton Knott fell race. In his best placing this season, he finished in 7th place out of 76 runners, around 2 mins 30 behind the winner.
