NYSD Filey XC – 17/11/13
Bobbi races to victory
Another nice day for the 2nd running of the XC at Filey, whilst last year it was a touch icy, this year provided better running conditions with little wind as the course headed out on to the scenic coast line.
Bobbi Phillips, having had a slightly shorter journey from York, lead from the start, coming home 1st over a minute ahead of Carolyn Ollis in the Senior Ladies Race. Kath Aspin was a fine 6th, 1st 45 with Louise Danby 25th, Diane Hall 40th and Terry Saffin 41st completing the team for New Marske for a great 2nd place in the team competition.
In the senior men’s race David Aspin was 1st Harrier home in 38th with Nick O’Grady 61st.
In the Junior Races, George Geldart was 1st in the U11’s, Frances Bell 1st U13’s, Hassan Ben-Tiba, Reece Curtis and Elliott Metcalfe 1st , 2nd and 4th in the U15’s.
Whilst it is a long trip to Filey, it is well worth the visit to support our fellow Scarborough runners who have to make that trip for every event.
