NYSD XC Relays – Thirsk – 22/09/13
A poor turnout from New Marske compared to most other clubs, but those that came had an enjoyable afternoon in sunny conditions not normally associated with XC.
George Geldart won the U11 (non relay) race with Charlotte Bennett 3rd in the U11 girls race.
James Geldart and Thomas Aspin had good runs in the U13 boys but were one short of a team.
In the U15 boys, Reece Curtis, Ben Bergstrand and Tom Geldart had fine runs just being edged out by Richmond and Zetland in the home straight. Reece and Hassan Ben Tiba ran the fastest legs of the race at 5:22 for the 1 mile lap.
Ellie Heath braved her first XC race for the Club and along with Sarah McGough and Rebecca Aspin came home 4th in the U15 girls.
Defending double champions New Marske Ladies had a hard battle in the senior race with City of York AC and Richmond & Zetland Harriers field strong teams of very fast young runners. Our young team of Kath Aspin, Erin Corbin and Lisa Bennett all had good runs to come home a strong 5th out of 12 teams.
We were unable to field a seniors men’s team.
