Old Monks Race Multi Terrain Race - 03/01/16

OM1

Report by Diane Hall

Five New Marske Harriers made the total of the social run at the back this year. The course had been changed slightly due to the past wet and windy weather. It was just under 5 miles, shorter than normal, we weren't sure whether it was tougher than last year or not, the mud certainly made it tougher. We did our usual regular run and regroup, starting together and finishing the same way. The majority of the run seemed to be in single file around muddy fields and along tracks, changing the scenery occasionally by whose bum was in front, you certainly couldn't look around for fear of loosing your footing. The marshals around the course were brilliant giving encouragement. It was nice to hit the final piece of road again, downhill now compared to the uphill going out. We ran in formation to the finish as birds or aeroplanes, we knew Karen Newton wouldn't be far with her camera. There she was waiting for us, one photo in flight then we stopped as usual to pose for the team photo, thanks Karen, then on a further 50m to the finish. We finished in about 59 mins, time is irrelevant, it's a group of friends enjoying the company and the banter. Another one over, ready for a well earned cuppa and piece of cake.

Editor :-  At the sharp end of the race Tristan Learoyd claimed a good victory in his first race in first race back after a Pulmonary Embolism in late November. Trish Speedie picked up 1st V45 prize and Tom Bunn was also running.

Another cracker of a race in the 32nd running of the Loftus Poultry Run.

New Marske Harriers lead the way again in the men’s race with Dom Shaw coming out on top with Russ Best 2nd and Middlesbrough & Cleveland’s Grey Jayasuriya 3rd.   New Marske packed the top 11, with Hassan Ben-Tiba 6th, Harry Allan 7th, Shaun O’Grady (1st vet) 8th, Aidan Rigby 10th and Martin Murray (2nd Vet) 11th.

In the ladies race there was a great battle between American based Kirsty Legg and Great Britain Orienteer and World Number 5 Cat Taylor.  More used to running on her own through forests with a map and compass, Cat made a rare road outing and was tested by Kirsty’s race craft.  Having dropped behind with a couple of miles to go, Kirsty used her strength to pull back in the last mile into a strong headwind to pip Cat for the win.   Alison Matthews of Darlington Harriers was 3rd with New Marske’s Sharon Bulman 4th.

In the team race, New Marske picked up both the Men’s and Ladies prizes and there were Turkey’s all round for, Dom Shaw, Russ Best, Hassan Ben-Tiba, Harry Allan, Sharon Bulman, Alice Rigby & Kath Aspin.

43 New Marske Harriers took part out of the 453 runners and there were plenty of Category Prizes won including Shelli Gordon 3rd vet35, Kath Aspin 3rd vet45, Lorraine Allamby 2nd vet65 and  Darren Bell vet40.  New Marske also dominated the vet70 category with Ronnie Sherwood 1st, Brian Allen 2nd, Phil Miles 3rd and Jim Conaghan 4th
