The North East’s Premier Fell Club Website by Merlin
Thank you all for turning out and supporting not only the eighteenth Castleton Show Run (approx 10km) with a record entry, but also the Castleton Show - almost a perfect day for running! Great runs by Yohanne Eyob in the mens race and by Rhona Marshall in the ladies race. And there were great battles for 2nd and 3rd in both the mens and in the ladies races. Well done to all prizewinners! Congratulations to the team from North York Moors AC in taking the mens team prize in a very close contest with York Knavesmire. The ladies from GoodGym Race Team took the ladies team prize, and North York Moors AC would have won the 2nd ladies team prize (ie another box of beer) if I'd bought one! Many apologies to Barry Moody and Rob Howard (M70's) for missing them from my prize matrix. Also, many thanks to Aycliffe Running Club for organising a club outing to our race - I believe they adjourned to the Lion Inn on Blakey for post-race recovery! I hope that you all enjoyed your runs on this undulating course - and your afternoon at the Show - please pass the word around, and bring along a friend next year!!All being well I will organise the run again next year, which will be on Show Day, second Saturday in September 2020 (which I make to be the 12th). Finally, many thanks to Graham Hall (with Diane) for acting as race official and to the marshals for their help - my wife Di as 'sweeper', Ellie Wright and Sam Benson (cattlegrid and water point), Tim Grimwood and Stephen Roe (at the crossroads), Sid Bollands (Westerdale junction and collecting road signs), Neil Ridsdale (above Hob Hole), Nigel Briggs (registration plus cattlegrids at 2k and 8k), Dave Moor (road junctions at 2k and 8k), Egg Cameron (registration) and Livia Wright (water at the end). An honourable mention too for Medics UK Ltd, without whom the run couldn't take place.
