Another sell out race for New Marske’s Locke Park Pie and Peas 5mile race.

Paul had the edge in the final couple of miles and came home in 27:03, 10 seconds ahead of John with Noel Hitchcock of Sunderland Harriers 3rd in 28:20.
For the Ladies, New Marske’s Kay Neesam was 1st in 31:34, Quakers Dawn Richardson 2nd in 31:49 and New Marske’s Kath Aspin 3rd in 32:58.
The prizes were awarded in order of Age Graded % with 69 year old Darlington Harriers Athlete Shirley Gibson coming out on top with 86.2%, Paul Lowe 2nd 86.1% and Kay Neesam 3rd with 85.4%. Other New Marske prize winners included Kath Aspin 9th, Ronnie Sherwood 18th, Paul Cleasby 20th, Brian Allen 22nd, Lorraine Allamby 24th and Trish Speedie 25th.
