The sun was shining for the Hardmoors Rosedale trail series with different distance options available across the challenging moorland terrain.  The “marathon” option included 29.2 miles (3 more than a normal marathon) with well over 4,000 feet of climb.  Juliette Pilgrim was the only one from the club to take on this distance and completed the course in a very determined 5 hours 55 min to finish as well deserved 6th lady.  The “half marathon” option also included some extra “hardmoors miles” coming in at 16.3 miles with over 2,000 feet of elevation. Kim Cavill had a cracker of a race to finish in 2 hours 38 min taking home the trophy for the second fastest lady.  Amanda Welburn-Smith had a strong run to finish in 3 hours 18 mins and Philly Hare ran a very determined race to complete the tough course in 4 hours and 13 minutes.

Sunday was a lovely day for the Run For All Jane Tomlinson 10k through the delightful streets of York.  The race was along closed roads and promised a fast course for the 5,000 participants.  Pacey Paul Robinson prepared well for the race, resting up and taking it easy in his training for the two weeks beforehand.  He was rewarded with a superb run in an amazing 41 min 43 seconds, 219th overall and 1st in the over 60 category.

Tuesday night was glorious and the perfect evening for the Pickering Running Club members who headed out to the coast for the Ravenscar Rumble. A 4.7 mile fell race organised by the National Trust including tricky descents and a very challenging 800 feet climb over the course of 1 mile.  First back for the club was Simon Tyrell who completed the course in a highly respectable 43.50 after suffering recently with a knee injury.  Rachael Harper was not far behind in 45.20 despite a slight navigational error.  Lizzy Wise was next in 49.13 followed by Shirley Tyrell in 56.43 and the team was rounded off by Pam Garnett who ran with her daughter Lucy and thoroughly enjoyed her first fell race and will be back for more.
