Congratulations to Hannah and Anna who ran their first fell (okay trail) races last night! Anna finished 44th (5th woman) with a respectable time of 32:04 despite spending the last 8months ill and Hannah came in 94 (9th woman) with a good time of 35.43 whilst coming back from injury. Nic Barber outdid them both of course and not only won but got a 1second PB with a time of 25:50!
Well done to the ShUOCers who competed at Grindleford last Friday. I can't seem to find the official results but here are some unofficial ones:
3rd Jack Wright
7th Adam Potter
9th Nic Barber
16th Jack Millar
17th Alex Hichcliffe
Well done to the others who ran sorry i don't have your results!
We are immensely proud to announce that Charlotte Ward has been selected to run in the Sprint Women of the World Orienteering Championships. Congratulations on a very well deserved selection! http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/index.php?pg=1&action=news&id=MzIyNg%3D%3D&rtn=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5icml0aXNob3JpZW50ZWVyaW5nLm9yZy51ay8%3D
ShUOC dominated all be it in their slightly dodgy white vests. Almost a 1-7 white wash...
1st - Jonny Crickmore
2nd - Tommy Horton
3rd - Will Gardner
4th - Jack Wright
5th - Matt Elkington
7th - Nic Barber
With Olly Williams and Ben White also in the top 20 and Alex 33rd. Chris Owens and Mike Beasant...well...at least they sprinted the finish :P I'm sure all runners would like to thank the lovely trio of Rhona, Hannah and Anna who were at the top of Mam Tor to cheer them on and take embarrassing photos.
Well done to Jonny Crickmore who was faster over the old course than the record and came in first. Nic Barber finished 4th and Alex Hinchcliffe completed his first fell race, coming in 18th! Congratulations to all who ran.
A few of our finest ShUOC-ers braved some horrendous weather conditions in Oxspring to race in the Trunce 4. Some great results including 1st and 2nd for Olly Williams (despite a little slip up in the river) and Jack Wright respectively. 5th for Millar and respectable 16th for Patrick Jones, 22nd for Cooper and 34th for Alex Moore. Congratulations to all who took part and good luck to everyone else competing this week!
Congrats to Nic Barber who finished 23rd in the Lakes!
News from the fells: it was ShUOC domination again last night with a 1,2,3,4 at the local "classic" Totley Moor Fell Race.
Sporting the legendary gimp/tank tops, Will Gardner took it from the fast improving Matt Elkington. Chasing hard was fell-racing new boy Adam Potter (3rd) just holding off Jack Wright (4th) who had a fantastic run considering his 6 month break. All four runners within a minute of each other and all comfortably breaking 36 mins. Another solid run for the king of the mountain bike himself, Mike Beasant who finished in 24th.
These local "classics" are ideal for beginners who would like to give it a go. Not too demanding with great views at the top! C'mon freshers - you know you want to!
Please take a moment, if you haven't already done so, to vote for Charlotte Ward as she endeavours to get £1000 towards her competitions this year - http://www.marsmilk.com/play-fund-2015/clubs/charlotte-ward
Thanks to everyone who made it down to our club photo this afternoon - looking (mostly) very dapper in our social tops:
