Results after Auckland Castle race 6

Results after Race 5 Darlington 10k

It’s getting close to the climax of the Grand Prix. In the Grand Prix competition based on Age Granding Chris Woods looks to be in a strong position and in the Handicap category Liz Lamb is well placed. Team 3 Liz/Shaun/Bob are now the frontrunners but all that could change after the last race at Auckland Castle at the back end of the month -27th.

Results after Race 4 – parkrun in Middlesbrough

7 runners turned up to compete – the weather was an improvement on the Angel View! Results are here. Remember that runners need to run four races out of the six available (to come is the Darlington 10k and the Auckland Castle Race). The team competition runs over all six races however. All could still change in the leader tables in the three competitions.

Results of Race 3-Angel View

Great turn out on a really murky night. 12 runners contested the points for the Grand Prix. The results are here and hopefully can be understood but you may need to take your time! As a summary Chris Woods is leading in the Age Graded (Grand Prix Prize), Diane is in front in the Handicap section having run more races than Liz who can still challenge (along with everyone else!). Lynne Diane and Chris are in front in the Team Category.

Race Three Result: Blackhill parkrun

Well here are the results from Blackhill. A nice course (when you’re spectating certainly but maybe also from the running point of view). Very friendly and the small cafe was just perfect at the end. We ended up going to Blackhill as Jacqui Robson said that it and Hartlepool were good choices. Blackhill seemed a bit different. If you see her you can say how much you loved the hills! Next up is the Thirsk 10 miler to really sort things out.

Race One Results: Town Moor 10K: Sunday 13th November

This was the first race of the season under the experimental rules whereby runners pre-enter for the whole series. There is also a Team Event incorporated into the competition. Overall 18 people put their names forward to enter and of these 11 turned up for the Town Moor run. On the day there were a couple of really great pbs set and everyone seemed to enjoy the run and the cuppa and cake afterwards. Christine came away with a 2nd place in her age group class and a £10 voucher. Congratulations to her and to Lynne who came away in first place overall. Team 2 took the honours in the Team Competition. Next race is the Poultry Run on December 18th at Loftus.

Winter Grand Prix 2014-15

Thirsk 10 and Mermaid 10k and final summary

Bob Hewitson made the Winter Grand Prix his own by getting 15 points in the last two races. He finished the series with a massive 49 points 28 points clear of his next rival Mike Kenyon. Well done to Bob on the consistency of his racing which is what this Series aims to encourage. The final results table is here

Final Results table

Parkrun 7.2.15

16 runners for the parkrun but a glitch in the advertising meant that most probably didn’t realise it was a GP event! Bob made it but unfortunately his closest rival (Dave) didn’t, so his lead could well be unassailable now. It could be done with only 2 races left, but it’s up to Mike. Can he do it? It’s a big ask. Thirsk and the Mermaid remain.

Loftus Poultry Race 20.12.14

Four runners from the Club braved this tough one and the first over the line for DCH was Peter Harrison in an excellent 54.40 to come home in 61st position. Next was Bob Hewitson, consolidating his grip on the overall competition, coming back in 108th place in an excellent 71.27% age grading. Third over the line was Mike Kenyon, suffering from a bad cold/cough and lastly Dave in fancy dress came back in 64.02. Well done to all. (You can read an excellent report on the race by Mike on the Results page of the website).

Heaton Memorial 10k 9th November

On this the second run in the winter series first home for DCH was Ian Crampton in a great time of 33:54, closely followed by Rob Hand in 35:23. Kim Simpson was next in recording 40:30. However when taking in the Age Grading calculation Alan moved up in to third spot with a cracking 80.94% behind Ian-92.03% and Rob Hand 86.75%.

In the overall points table Bob Hewitson goes clear with a 2 point lead over Rob Garbutt and then Mike Kenyon. But who can say what will happen as this competition is all about consistency and who from DCH turns out on the day to steal the bonus points.

The extra points for the night went to the first three DCH runners home, Dan Jenkin, James Askew and Andy Graham. But in the overall competition it is now Peter Harrison leading with 20 points from Alison Walker 18 and Rob Hand 16. It really depends who turns out for all the remaining races with the next being Darlington 10k on August 10th.

Tynedale 10K 2nd July

Nine runners from DCH tackled this scenic 10k famous for the nice downhill start. First home for the club was Wout continuing his fine run of form (read his race report on the Road/Trail Section). In terms of the Grand Prix it was top points for Bob, followed by Wout and then Alison. In the overall points table Alison goes to the top then comes Rob Hand, lurking dangerously in second place. This event is all about turning out on the day for the race so with Sunderland 5k coming up in a fortnights time all eyes will be on who turns out!

Penshaw Hill Race

Only for the brave?? Six runners successfully completed this very tough 3miler around Penshaw Monument. Congrats to Rob Hand who was first Vet 50 and 8th overall. A mighty achievement which gets him maximum points and a good lead already in the Summer Grand Prix. Also very well done to other runners, Alison,Lynne,Peter,Chris and Dave.

Congratulations to the 12 runners who made it around the Clive Cookson 10k. A great first place in the race for Dan Jenkin – but in the Age Grading he was pipped for first place by Rob Hand who ran a storming race to gain all the bonus points.

Stockton 5k Trail Race 9.3.14

Liz Lamb took the opportunity to go into a strong lead with only one race left, the Mermaid 10k. It looks like an unassailable position now and one thoroughly deserved, hitting a massive 77.55% in terms of age grading in this 5k race. She was followed home by Dave Coxon and Lynne Carruthers who have really supported this first running of the Winter Grand Prix. Commiserations go to Bob Hewitson who was unable to run because of a broken foot sustained at a recent cross country race. Tragic.

Real success for DCH at this race.

In the Grand Prix Bob still leads but his lead is reduced with Liz making a bit of ground. Two races left.

Old Monks six mile 5.1.14

Bob makes the most of Liz not running to go into the lead. Chloe gets 8 points. Three races to go. But will the marathon training take its toll on Bob in the coming months?

Summer Grand Prix Results

2013

The final race in the Summer Series saw Peter Harrison take first position with 32 points ahead of Lynne Carruthers (30) and Bob Hewitson (27). Missing only one race out of the seven Peter fully deserved his win although for a good while it looked like Lynne would take the honours. Consistency was all. Some people came good towards the end of the series like Bob H, but really he had too much to do and not enough races left.

Congratulations to Peter.
