Locke Park Pie & Peas 5 Miler - 13/05/15
Joining an athletics club offers much more than training and competing. It brings together athletes from all backgrounds and abilities and can involve all the family. New Marske’s Locke Park Pie & Peas 5 mile race offered the chance to complete 5 laps of the park and to socialise afterwards at Redcar Cricket Club. Prior to the main event, 25 juniors completed their own 1 mile race cheered on by the competitors in the main race.
In the 5 miler, New Marske’s Paul Brown and Andy Pearson set the pace sticking together for the first three laps before Paul stepped on the pedal to come home 1st in 27:16, 20 seconds ahead of Andy with Billingham Marsh House’s Luke Duffy in 3rd 28:36. 1st lady was Josephine Stone of Middlesbrough Mandale in 29:33 with Kay Neesam 2nd in 31:07 with fellow New Marske Harrier Kath Aspin 3rd in 32:51.
As with many of New Marskes races, the prize were awarded on an age graded %, with Kay Neesam 1st, Brian Martin, Quakers V55 2nd , Andy Pearson V40 3rd, Shirley Gibson Darlington V65 4th and Josephine Stone 5th.
These races could not take place without the support of all the volunteers and thanks must go to Kevin Speedie and his team of helpers.
