Snake Lane 10M Pocklington

[Mon 1st Mar 2011]  And so the Grand Prix season is upon us again.  The first race this year was again the Snake Lane 10 at Pocklington near York, with 34 members of the club taking part, an increase of 2 from last year.  In fine conditions with only a slight wind the race was won by Ricky Stevenson of New Marske Harriers in a course record time of 48:03.

First back for Blyth was Robbie Barkley in 37th position with a time of 1:00:16, followed by Sam Dodd in 1:02:52 for 59th place overall.  First home for the ladies was Heather Christopher, 12th lady and 162nd overall.  There were age group prizes for Heather, Suzie, Cath Young , Martin Gaughan and Rob Hall, who was making a long overdue return to racing.  The men's team finished 8th and the ladies a very respectable 4th.

Many thanks to the supporters who travelled down to cheer the runners on and to Mal for organising the bus.
