Helsby weekly round-up 27th May – 1st June 2014

Hi all

It is a very mixed bag this week, from park runs to club counters to Elite International races!

On Tuesday 27th May our Steve Riley joined Keswick AC for a one night stand, running in their Latrigg Uphill Time Trial. Steve was an impressive 5th place and this was to be a reverse route of what Jayne Joy ran at the Karrimor Great Trail Race on Sunday. Steve has reported that it is a friendly club with “Beautiful, if lung bursting terrain.”

5th          Steve Riley       19.08

Wednesday 28th May was the first in the Harrock Hill race series and a brief race report by Paul Foster below

“I ran the first of the Harrock hill races last night..5.2 miles 900 ft. The course was changed a little to keep away from charging cows. Don’t think it would have added much more on to the distance.

Felt more like the cross country season.”

38th                  Jamie Dowdall           40.19 (2nd claim Helsby)
109th                Paul Foster                  48.33

Hopefully results to appear here in time, can’t find at the moment.

Interestingly, on Saturday the Hollins Green 5k was cancelled due to a council refusal to accept the UK Athletics endorsed traffic management course to apply road closures. Details on the website below!

The race has been provisionally rescheduled for Saturday 14th June.

Sunday saw our 3rd Helsby fell counter at Edenfield (BM) where 9 Helsby tested themselves on the tough tussocky terrain. Great result for Jim O’Hara first man home for Helsby to take the full honours and to Jackie for first Helsby lady home. (It’s worth noting that Jimmy is also currently in 3rd place for senior men in the North Wales series of fell races so a great season he is having!)
