Yorkshire Vets – message from Geoff
Many thanks to everyone who turned out to help with
the race organisation. The elderly folk really appreciated the smiling faces
& encouragement of the marshals, particularly Dan Murray who dressed in the
uniform of a Chelsea Pensioner & sang “it’s a long way to
Thanks also to Mike & Eileen for their usual reliable job of time keeping & special thanks to Pat & John for their excellent catering effort (much appreciated by the hungry runners) not forgetting their able assistant Joyce, the Voice. Conduct of the race was overseen by referee Ken who kept GW on his toes regarding the race permit.
All the vets enjoyed their trip round the trail in which VS was represented by Paul White, Carole Schofield & Malcolm Coles (winner of some socks).
Malcolm is doing the full series of races which are one per month throughout the summer; so if you have reached the great age of 35 you are eligible to take part in the series of off road events where you may score points & points mean prizes. Look out on VS Forthcoming Events for the next race!
Grand Prix Results
Fell Championship Results
Wharfedale Triple T
A brilliant weekend of running in the Dales; shame more Striders didn't join in. Full results are:
Friday night: 4K uphill road race
1.Sam Tosh Rossendale 18.29
4 Steve Webb 1st V40 19.41
21 Sara Dyer 1st F45 29.22
Saturday 20k A Medium fell race
1. Sam Tosh 1.28.32
5 Steve Webb 2nd V40 1.32.07

Sunday 3k A Short fell race
1 Sam Tosh 13.21
7 Steve Webb 1st V40 15.34
31 Sara Dyer 1st F45 22.59
Unsurprisingly Sam Tosh was the winner of the series (I was actually just ahead of him when we crossed over Great Whernside for the first time in the 20k fell race) and I was first V40 over the weekend.
Congratulations on a first win to Daniel Fitzhugh – yet another Striders name on the virtual podium.
