London Marathon - 23/04/2017
Report by Dave Aspin
Another great weekend at the London Marathon which appears to get bigger and better every year. Not sure if it was the better weather, but everything appeared to be busier this year. The expo was busier, the start area was busier, the number of runners appeared bigger and the volume of spectators was significantly higher than last year.
Kay Neesam celebrated being the youngest 50 year old on the start line (it was her birthday!) by claiming the New Marske Harriers Vet 50 marathon record. A number of PB’s from the men including a negative split for Martin Murray and not so far off from Michael Lyth who joined the sub 3hr club. Well done everybody!
Mermaid 10K - 14th April 2017
A great win for Dean Newton with Tristan Learoyd in 3rd both with PB's and Martin Murray in 5th. Michael Joyeux 2nd also with a PB and Paul Lowe 4th.
Dean was back on form and took the lead of the breakaway pack of Michael, Tristan and Paul Lowe. The first mile was covered in about 5 minutes ! Michael and Tristan kept in touch with Dean as Paul dropped off the pace.
In the Ladies Race 1st Louise Talman, 2nd Rosie Adams both with PB's, 3rd Sharon Bulman, 4th Kath Aspin and 5th Jade Hutchinson.
Locke Park 20/10 - 19th March 2017
The weather managed to stay fine for the runners in the Locke Park 20/10 miler. For the first time we offered the option of finishing at 10 or 20 miles but not inbetween. Some decided to race 10 and run a further few laps to make up their training miles. The results and prize winners are detailed below, but well done to our overall Age Graded winners Shirley Gibson in the 10 miler and Kay Neesam in the 20 miler.
