Junior  Xmas Handicap Race

New Marske Harriers Junior Xmas Handicap Races took place on Tuesday 28th December 2010.  The races are normally held on the trails around Guisborough Forest and Walkway.  However, a week before the scheduled race date, the trails at Guisborough were covered in thick ice and snow, and with no let up in the weather forecast, the decision was made to re-locate to Redcar Beach.  The decision was made early to enable the information to be circulated and hopefully everyone was aware of the revised details in good time.

Conditions on race day at Redcar were pretty grey with light rain.  The pavements were still covered in snow and ice and even the sand dunes were snow-covered.  However, the lower part of the beach provided an ideal location to run with firm sand and no snow!!

 

 

Two Junior Races took place – the first being for Harriers aged under 11, and the second for Harriers aged 11 and over.  The under 11’s race covered a distance of 1.3K, whilst the 11 and over’s race covered 2.6K.  Both races were ‘out and back’ along the beach. Handicap times were calculated using results from all available track and field and cross country results of 2010 plus some time trial information,

Nine Harriers competed in the under 11’s race.  Frances Bell had an outstanding run to win the race.  Thomas Aspin ran well to take second place with William Walker only 3 seconds behind taking third position. The first 3 finishers were closely followed by Rebecca Aspin, Jonathon Nicholson, Charlotte Patterson, Amy Carter, Issy Brining and Francesca Sutherland who all ran extremely well on the tough out and back route.

Eleven Harriers competed in the 11 and over’s race. Daniel Duffield had an excellent run to take first place and retain his title from 2009. Drew Davison came through the field well to finish in second position.  Charlotte Sutherland just held off Charlie Pascoe in an exciting sprint finish to take third place. These were followed by Sam Wheatley, Hannah Kitchener, Patrick Wilson, Katie Coulson, Sam Garratt, Izzy Pearse and Hannah Raine, all putting in a fantastic effort and finishing closely packed together.

A big well done and thank you to all the juniors who took part in the races and competed so well.  Thank you also to everyone who came along to help with the event, to Graham Hall who measured out the alternative route on the beach, and to family and friends who came to support.
