A busy weekend yet again for Team Elswick: Over in Carlisle, Richard Houghton continues his New York Marathon preparation with another good performance in the Cumbrian Half Marathon, certainly not flat, Richard ran a fine 1.26, finishing 42nd out of a thousand runners. Thank you to Mary for the Kielder photos.
At Kielder, the popular run series weekend took place: The ‘Run (10km) Bike (25km) Run (6km)’ saw Elswick’s and Castle Tri’s Micky Shore deliver a 2hr 50mins and 52 seconds time. Well done Micky. The 10km run saw 18 Elswick Athletes take to the start line. Ben Hall was first home and taking 6th place overall in 39.04. Well done to Paul, Colette, Joanne, Elaine, Les, Michelle, Tina, Lucie, Hilary, Emma, Rachel, Leanne, Karen, Samantha, Emma, Tracey and Catherine for their efforts.
The half marathon saw 10 Elswick Athletes take on the 13 miles 192 yards through Kielder. First home was Lee Llewellyn in 1.33.14 and 35th position. First home for the ladies an impressive 1.42.54 from Angela Richardson. Congratulations to Mel, Joanne, Melissa, Lalage, Kirsty, Michael, Christiane and Helen for their efforts.
The marathon saw 5 Elswick Athletes take on the Marathon Course. Congratulations to Elswick’s first runner home, Martin Caygill in 3.40.37 and 69th place. First lady home was Katy Goulding in 4.23.36 and 272nd position. Very well done to Daniel, Susan and Denise making up the quintet of the club runners in this race. For the Kielder results go to: www.chiptiming.co.uk or www.northeastraces.com The club’s very own roving European Running Ambassador, Dave Jardin was “up North” in Glasgow taking on the Great Scottish Run 10km running a 41.13 ( a hilly course, made more taxing having the day before ran the Wrekenton NEHL!). Well done Dave. Enjoy your up & coming races on Spanish Terracotta! Finally, a rather cheeky six and three quarter mile wine-athon….Yes….Really 🙂 From Durham’s Oval Park in Spennymoor, Claire, Lindsey, Kerrie and Andrea, quite probably had a very nice run, perhaps, not quite in straight line, as it was interspersed with 3 wine stations: Sounds like a canny venue for one of the club championship races next year! Well done TEAM ELSWICK, KEEP IT GOING!
