Club Handicap 2009
[Thu 7th May 2009] The Seniors held their handicap over a distance of 6.5 miles on Wed 6th May, the route starts at the Beach Car Park, along the beach path, up Collywell Bay road, past the Delaval Arms pub and then back along the cliff tops and then along the road back to Blyth.
There was a strong westerly wind blowing which hampered the runners as race organiser Dave Kitching set the first runners, newcomers Heather Barrass and Andrea Scott, off and from then on it was a steady procession of runners until Gary Jones was the last runner off. Running steadily Heather managed to hold onto her lead for the whole race and was never challenged or passed by any of the runners and came home a convincing winner. In second place was Paul Whalley, despite setting off second last Paul managed to pass the majority of runners and set the fastest time on the night. In third place was Andrea Scott who was only passed by Paul in the last 400 yards. Leanne Heron set the fastest time by a lady.
