Locke Park Pie & Peas 5 Miler - 13/05/15 

Bridie Coombes

Joining an athletics club offers much more than training and competing.  It brings together athletes from all backgrounds and abilities and can involve all the family.  New Marske’s Locke Park Pie & Peas 5 mile race offered the chance to complete 5 laps of the park and to socialise afterwards at Redcar Cricket Club.   Prior to the main event, 25 juniors completed their own 1 mile race cheered on by the competitors in the main race.

In the 5 miler, New Marske’s Paul Brown and Andy Pearson set the pace sticking together for the first three laps before Paul stepped on the pedal to come home 1st in 27:16, 20 seconds ahead of Andy with Billingham Marsh House’s Luke Duffy in 3rd 28:36.   1st lady was Josephine Stone of Middlesbrough Mandale in 29:33 with Kay Neesam 2nd in 31:07 with fellow New Marske Harrier Kath Aspin 3rd in 32:51. 

As with many of New Marskes races, the prize were awarded on an age graded %, with Kay Neesam 1st, Brian Martin, Quakers V55 2nd , Andy Pearson V40 3rd, Shirley Gibson Darlington V65 4th and Josephine Stone 5th.  

These races could not take place without the support of all the volunteers and thanks must go to Kevin Speedie and his team of helpers.

Member of the Month - April

Kath Aspin 5th V45Harry Allan

The winners were:


Senior - Kath Aspin - Nominated for her Sub 3:15 PB in the Manchester Marathon and her 5 mile, 10k, 10 mile, 1/2 marathon and  20 mile PB's in the lead up to the race. 

Junior - Harry Allan - nominated for his PB  and U17 Club Record of 4:41.3 in the 1500m Steeplechase previously held by Elliott Jackson in 4:45.0 set in 2007.


Remember, any member/parent/coach can nominate a senior or junior each month. It will allow the club to recognise achievements that are not necessarily catered for by our existing award structure. It could be for competing or volunteering.  Preference will usually be to those where the event has taken place within the month and who are unlikely to win one of the club's annual awards - but this will depend the strength of each month's nominations.
