NYSD Richmond Cross Country 5th Feb 2012
Andy wins by miles
On a day with a bitterly cold wind and testing conditions underfoot the commitment of the New Marske U11’s should mean the club has a bright future. New Marske had 6 of the 12 starters in the U11 race with Scott McKenna 1st, Georgia Stockdale 3rd, Ben McKenna 7th, Thomas Aspin 8th, Dominic Shipman 11th and Elliott Stockdale 12th. With the Inter Schools Cross Country having taken place the previous day there were only 3 other juniors, with Eli Barnbrook 7th and Rebecca Aspin 12th in the girls U13 and Wayne Parker 3rd in the U17 Boys.
Not sure what happened to the all the New Marske seniors, but Andy Wiles showed the rest of the field how he beat Kenenisa Bekele and Brimin Kirupto. Having decided not to follow a mystery runner who sped off on the first lap, he pulled away on the second lap and went on to win the race by nearly 2 minutes in preparation for his International 5K in Armagh on Thursday 9th February. In the ladies race Kath Aspin was our sole representative and came home a fine 9th after a battle with Michelle Scott from Aycliffe.
The final meeting of the series will be at Caedmon School, Whitby on Sunday 19th February.
