Race 7 of the Dave Parry Winter Series fell race took place last weekend, the At the Double from Skinningrove, where an extra winter chill could be felt on the north east coast.

A smaller than usual club contingent saw Trudy Morrice fastest of them in 61.55, 3rd F50, Brett Edgeworth in 62.24 and Helen Ashworth 1st F55 in 70.53.

Sara Armitage, meanwhile, was among the thousands at the popular Cambridge half marathon achieving a PB time 2 12 47 over a flattish course.

With 394 finishers at Fountains Abbey park run, this was still 100 fewer than took part last week at the special celebratory event.

Mike Cropper was again fastest in his helpful new trainers, getting faster each week and taking 20.39, with Rob Burn 22.42 and Alan Docherty 26.43.

Laura Rodmell completed her 25th park run in PB 29.06 and others finishing were Christine Burn, Gillian Crane, Marian Codling and tail walker, Kerry Morgan.
