Thirsk 10 2015

Race report, 22nd March 2015

Thirsk 10 2015 group

Last Sunday fourteen Holmfirth Harriers made their way to Thirsk on a cold but bright morning for the Thirsk 10 mile road race from the racecourse. Matthew being injured still volunteered to drive the club minibus, act as support and photographer, thanks to him from all on the bus.

Phil Hewitt, Seton Waddington, Lorraine Smith and Liz Woodfield were all away very quickly with Phil soon being out of site of the rest of the group. By half way Phil was several minutes in front of Seton, with Rob a further minute down and with Lorraine, Liz and Mark Owen a short distance behind, then came Annabelle Hill, John Field, Heidi King, Tim Cock, Cheryl Laird and Fay Dolphin, following at regular intervals. While flat the course does has some slight inclines and enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, the light breeze was also just strong enough to make you work harder as you ran into it. Those that started too enthusiastically were feeling the pace by 8 miles but Mark, in training for a marathon, increased his pace after half way running a negative split and moved through the field.
