Four members from Notfast Running Club went to Edwinstowe for the ‘Christmas 10k’. Some 450 started the race, which is very highly rated by runners for its lovely scenery and overall good level of organisation and marshalling. It was a pretty cold morning but this did nothing to prevent our foursome from turning in some very good times :
Jodie Walton 48.32
Mark Jackson 48.33
Dick Brumby 51.04
Darren Wilkinson 51.25
The freezing North Yorkshire Moors, last Saturday beckoned to that Foursome that I think of as ‘The Whitby Four’…namely..Mike Bullock, David Watt, Caroline Upton and Liz Walton. The event was the 30 mile long ‘Frostbite Ultra’…and frosty it was ! Mike describes big hills and surfaces that were like ice rinks. Mike also reports that he fell over 6 times and broke his thumb .
Mr Bullock posted a time of 4 hours 55 minutes while the other three saw it as a challenge and, as such, were not looking for a ‘Time’.
