National Cross Country Relays

Berry Hill Park Mansfield

4th November 2017

The heavy overnight rain made for a muddy course at the superb venue of Berry Hill Park, Mansfield for the National Cross Country relays. Louth AC took two U15 teams to this event for the first time in its history and they certainly did not disappoint.

The girls race was first, with Issy Dhami out on the first leg. This was a totally new and very daunting experience for Issy, a mass start of 118 girls all with  sharp elbows and even sharper metal spikes all attempting to get to the front is no place for the faint hearted.  Issy gave as good as she got and competed excellently getting herself into the top half of the field exiting the first long corner.  The leg sapping mud, coupled with the difficult wooded section saw stronger, more experienced athletes take advantage.  However Issy never stopped working to the end and handed over to Freya Plaskitt in 81st place in a very fast 8min 14.55sec.  A first year U15 athlete, Freya was taking on a large number of girls older and bigger than herself.  Competing for the first time at National level, Freya was not daunted by the occasion or the quality of the athlete around her.  She fought very well through the mud in a good solid time of 8mins 48.35sec. and improved the team position, handing over to Hannah Reid on the anchor leg in 80th place.  Hannah has now put the injury problems of last winter behind her and is now starting to show glimpses of the form that made her a top track athlete in the 2016 season.  She was in no mood to hang about and stormed through the field taking an astounding 26 places to bring the team home in a fantastic 54 place.  Hannah ran the 22nd fastest third leg in 8min 2.05 sec and no other athlete passed more competitors.

Up next was the U15 Boys, led off by Lloyd Buck. Despite being totally inexperienced, Lloyd had listened well to instruction and got off to a brilliant start and was quickly up into the top thirty of the 125 starters, despite being elbowed and spiked several times, Lloyd ran superbly through the wooded section and only started to find the pace hard in the last quarter of 2Km leg.

The first leg of a National relay event can see places dropped in the blink of an eye, such is the calibre of the athletes competing. An exhausted Lloyd handed over to Matthew Spendlove in 64th position in an incredibly fast 7min 11.15secs.  Another first year U15 athlete, competing at National level for the first time, Matthew ran a very competent leg, dropping only a few places to older athletes from some very big clubs and will be delighted with his time of 7mins 41.25secs .   Out on the anchor leg, Caleb Stephenson worked tirelessly through a very churned up course and succeeded in improving the final team  position to 68th in a solid time of 7mins 48secs.

Given the inexperience of these six athletes at National level and the short time some of them have been in the sport, both teams performed brilliantly.

LOUTH AC WEEKLY REPORT – 30TH OCTOBER 2017

 

Lincolnshire Runner Cross Country League 2017/18                

Match 1   West Common, Lincoln   29/10/17

There was a fantastic turn out by competitors and supporters on the 1st of the 4 Lincolnshire Runner Cross Country League, with 306 competitors from 22 clubs and 3 individual guest runners.  Louth AC had the 3rd highest number of runners at 31 behind bigger clubs Lincoln Wellington AC 63 and Cleethorpes AC 35 with Scunthorpe & District AC 4th at 19.  The course was reasonably flat and fast with a gradual long hill at the start and repeated laps for the older age groups.  In addition the runners had to manoeuvre past horses grazing on one part of the common and tackle the slight head wind on an autumn sunny morning.

Brilliant result for the Senior Women’s team – 1st place with 28 points.      Lincoln Wellington AC and Wolds Veteran Runners Club finished 2nd and 3rd places respectively both on 33 points.   The Under 15 Girls and Boys teams both achieved 2nd places.  The Under 15 Girls 24 points with 1st place Cleethorpes AC 10 and Scunthorpe & District AC 3rd on 26 points.  The Under 15 Boys listed as 2nd place with the same number of points as first place Grantham AC 20 and Cleethorpes AC 3rd on 46 points.

LOUTH AC WEEKLY REPORT – 23RD OCTOBER 2017

 The Yorkshire Coast 10K, Scarborough – 2 PB’s and a 3rd age group placing!

 6 members of Louth AC competed in the Scarborough 10K on Sunday 22nd October 2017 in less than perfect conditions for racing, due to the windy conditions on the east coast. There were 1841 finishers.
So it was fantastic to see that 2 members achieved Personal Bests and 4 members were just outside their personal best by less than 2 min 23 secs.

New PBs for Malcolm Cope in 51 min 41 finishes 600th (10th out of 26 in the Vet 65 age category) and for Christopher Taylor in 40 min 04, (tantalising just outside the 40 minute barrier) in 77th position (40th out of 295 in the 18-39 age category).
Jane Cope in 55 min 28 finishes 847th (27th out of 119 in the Vet 50 age category) and Kerry Stainton 44 min 42 finishes 213th (5th out of 167 in the Vet 45 age category).

Kevin Wallis 40 min 39 finishes 89th (3rd out of 77 in the Vet 55 age category) and Kevin Houghton 40 min 53 (only 30 seconds outside his PB) finishes 92nd (13th out of 138 in the Vet 40 age category).

Northern Cross Country Relays Graves Park Sheffield Saturday 21st October

Louth entered an U15 girls team and an U15 boys team for this prestigious event for the first time in many years. All six runners performed very well over a very demanding hilly 2000m course in near gale force weather conditions, which obviously effected all of the times.

The girls race was first off with Issy Dhami on the lead leg. Despite her lack of experience and her first time running in such a high quality event, she finished very strongly in a tight bunch of 8 runners separated by only 5 seconds, her time given as 8.55 and placed 23rd from 40 starters.

Next off was Charlotte Merry, another novice at this level, who battled very well through the conditions and brought the team home in a personal time of 10.02 in another tightly packed group where we lost a couple of positions through confusions with the marshalling. On the final leg, Hannah Reid left the starting gate in 27th position and ran very strongly through the ever worsening conditions to bring the team home in a time of 9.04 in a very respectable 18th place, having passed 9 runners on the course which was more than any other athlete on the third leg.

A great team effort, well done to all three girls.

The boys race had Lloyd Buck out on the first leg, with only limited experience at this level, he lost out a little on the start, but quickly got into his impressive running stride and carved his way through the field to bring the team home in a fantastic 17th place from 47 starters in a very fast 7.40.  Next out was Taran Dhami, a first year under 15 and a first timer in this quality of event. Although slipping a few places to much older and more experienced athletes, he produced a good solid performance in a time of 8.51 which was four seconds faster than his older more experienced sister,( so he has the bragging rights in that household)  Out on the last leg was our most experienced athlete, Caleb Stephenson (8:10) who used his speed and strength well in the gale force conditions to take four places and bring the team home in 26th position overall.

Another great team effort, well done to all three boys.

Everyone enjoyed the event despite the chilly windy conditions and all eyes are now turned to the English Relay Championships at Mansfield in a few weeks time.

Marathon Season in Full Flow

4th Major Marathon completed for Louth AC member

James McNamee achieved another sub 3 hour finish in the Berlin Marathon held on Sunday 24th September 2017. Not good preparations as unexpectedly having issues in Berlin with baggage allowance and train tickets plus the situations that arose where some slower runners were able to be ahead of James at the start making a narrow course difficult to run on and overtake and the added pressures with the volume of runners at drink stations. This did not deter James from giving his best in the wet, damp and cold conditions – not ideal for a PB. James completed the Berlin marathon in 2 hours 55 mins 53 secs, only 3 minutes outside his target time, with some very impressive split times – halfway in 1 hour 25 mins 24 secs, 5k 20.06, 10k, 40.19, 15k 1.00.38, 20k 1.20.56, 25k 1.41.36, 30k 2.02.56, 35k 2.24.36 and 40k 2.46.38

James is on a mission to run all the 6 major marathons having already completed the London, Chicago, New York and Berlin with the Boston and Tokyo still to run.

 

Hull Marathon – Sunday 24th September 2017

The 2 person and 4 person relay races were staged again in 2017 following the same route as the main marathon, these presented runners the chance to still be part of the atmosphere if a marathon is a challenger too far.

Kerry Stainton put together a team in the 4 person relay team named ‘Team Kerry Stainton’ with Kevin Wallis the first runner competing 6 miles, Kerry 7.1 miles, Jason Stainton 7.8 miles and Carlissa Daniels 5.3 miles to cross the finish line in an excellent team time of 3 hours 08 mins.29 secs. The team did fantastic to finish 5th overall in the 4 person relay team with a brilliant 2nd place unisex/mixed team out of 92 teams, only 56 secs behind the winning team of East Hull Harriers & AC.

An impressive performance as the team consisted of 3 x veterans and 1 x junior runner.

Jason Oxby completed the Hull marathon as an individual runner and ran a great race to achieve a PB in 3 hours 43.30 secs. Jason finished 28 out of 111 in his age category and overall position in the race 176 out of 857 runners.
