Great Personal Best for Rosemary
A field of 562 runners completed the first-ever Wilne 10k including 12 runners from the Harriers. Gordon Irvine was the club’s first finisher and the first from a Derbyshire club in 17th place, in a time of 34mins 42secs. There were some pretty good times from our runners but the run of the day came from Rosemary Arris finishing in 48mins 58secs. This time was nearly three minutes quicker than her previous pb in 2007 when she ran a time of 51mins 46secs.
There were also good runs from Gemma Irvine, Georgina Bestwick, Robin Clegg and Andy Daykin who all came close to their personal bests while the younger guys Ed James, Alex Duthie and Jack Daykin had decent runs. Linda Simmonds who has only been with the club through the summer period could be well pleased with her time of 58mins 50secs.
Double or Quit
The five and ten mile races around Shipley Park orgainised by Ilkeston Running Club saw Alex Duthie win the five mile race in a time of 29mins 55secs. The ten mile distance saw Steph Ilsley and Rob Pearce continue for another lap with Steph finishing first lady in 71mins 19sec while Rob running well finished in 78mins 8secs.
This years Rugby Rover proved to be popular with the Harriers. Thirteen runners successfully managed the tough course on a warm Sunday morning. The 30k route over the Midshires Way had 326 finishers with a good number running it for the first time.
