[Mon 7th Mar 2011] Just one week
after the long trip to Pocklington for the first race
in the club's Grand Prix series, members of Blyth Running Club were again on
their travels, this time 29 runners and their supporters took the slightly
shorter journey for the second race in the series, the Haweswater
Half marathon. Starting and finishing in
was again first back for
least three of Blyth's runners managed half marathon pb’s,
very impressive running on a course with over 1600ft of ascent and descent,
Dave Bradley by 2 mins, Chris Stone by 4 mins and Peter Holmback by an
incredible 7 mins; what a difference a week made to
Chris and Peter. Special mention to Rob
Hall, whose time of 1:32:49 gave him first place in his age category.
A big thanks to Robbie and Mal for driving the mini buses, which allowed the rest of us to rehydrate afterwards in the local hostelry.
