club5 picThe Club 5 was my second attempt at organising a race and whilst there were a few nervous moments feedback from most has been really positive; I'd like to start by offering a huge thank you to all of the marshalls, supporters and officials for their support.

It was delightful to see so many runners at registration and more so to have a mix of abilities from the different running groups; to me that's what the club events are about - participation and enjoyment for all.

The weather was almost ideal and after a very thorough safety briefing from Kath, Kevin Johns put us under starter's orders, 3-2-1, go! The first 50 metres are quite tricky having to cross the main road; Matthew Pierson and Kath Farquhar did a fine job in ensuring all 61 runners crossed the road safely.

The Club 5 is a relatively easy course, down Gynn Lane, across New Mill Road onto the footpath and head towards New Mill. There's a slight incline from the Rock pub to the junction of Luke Lane/Thurstonland Bank and then it's reasonably flat into New Mill. Once in New Mill runners turn right towards Holmfirth and after another slight incline, turn right down Kirk Bridge Lane, right over the bridge and back up onto New Mill Road; from here it's a very rewarding and reasonably fast finish!

Triathlete Jonny McLean was first home and fastest on the night in 29:06; fastest lady was Ladies Captain Helen Berry, 7th in 30:58. The winners on handicap were in 1st place Katherine McFadzean, 2nd Neil Midgley and in 3rd place Fay Dolphin.

There were many great performances on the night, so well done all!
